Is there really a security risk with the BlackBerry or is the government over-reacting? There are many ways to access email with your mobile device. Most smartphones are designed to integrate the mobile device with the office network. To the server, the smartphone appears as just another computer which can pull emails from the server and users read emails on their phones in much the same way as they do on their laptops. The BlackBerry service, on the other hand, is designed so that all data sent by a BlackBerry device is compressed to a fraction of its original size before being sent to vast RIM server farms in Canada. These servers connect to individual BlackBerries using a “push” technology that allows email messages to reach the recipient device almost as soon as it hits the Canadian server. The compression also ensures that the message is encrypted, imparting, in addition to rock-steady reliability, an unparalleled privacy in email communication.
