Remember all those analyst reports warning about how dangerous iPods were in enterprise settings? Apparently, those were so successful that analyst firms are shoving each other aside to make the same claims about the upcoming launch of the iPhone. Some are worried that executives will buy iPhones because they'll be a status symbol, but the lack of enterprise security will make them a prime target for hackers, while others are complaining about the general lack of enterprise-ready security. The thing is, no one has claimed that the iPhone is an enterprise device. And, as for the security risks, they're about the same as any other portable storage device, which is hardly a new phenomenon. However, putting out a warning about the iPhone is the type of thing that attracts press coverage, so it's not too surprising to see analyst firms rush into it.
