This is very good book to help me understanding what for safety structure individually smartphone that include Blackberry and iPhone. Also, Android smartphone came with it. What are differently about it, how you can protected, what going through over-the air system, using wi-fi, etc...

Book is outdated but I wishes if publisher will updates more feature such as security, firewall protection (over-the-air broadcast/server) and update of security apps. I highly recommended to pick-up this book...

Full disclosure: I am a Juniper employee, but I have not been focused on mobile device security (other than being a concerned mobile device user). I was looking for a resource to help me better understand the topic, and this book was pretty much perfect. It addresses what's going on in the market, what's important about creating and enforcing good enterprise policy, and is definitely NOT a Juniper product pitch. I just recommended it to about 10 customers today in a presentation. Excellent work Rich, Subbu, and Ashwin!
