    Yes I know it's an old thread but it must be told... iphone encrypts all data transmitted and received BlackBerry 10 does not.
    IPhone has indeed beefed up its system BlackBerry 10 so far has not.
    BlackBerry cannot be hacked by your average Joe nor can iphone.

    BlackBerry used to encrypt emails in and out under the old system annd so it's quite possible that iphone has the edge since it scrambles all info in and out.

    BlackBerry can be trusted to store data iphone to a slightly lesser degree.

    If BlackBerry doesn't do something they just may go 6 feet under.

    Iphone is a great phone but sadly can't block anonymous callers.

    In the end its about how important is your privacy?

    Security on any device is only as good as the person using it. Those that don't have a password lock on their phone... (but then we all know better than to blame victims of crime now don't we?)

    Most vulnerabilities exist outside the phone anyway, data captured in transit (NSA), backups stored externally (cloud), 'social engineering' to break your email account. These are harder to protect against and aren't free (running your own email server).

    But rest assured, against your 'common' bedroom hacker (sans supercomputer) an encrypted BlackBerry has never been rooted, jailbroken, decrypted or in any way violated. That's why BlackBerry still the only phone manufacturer with US Department of Defence (I forget the correct acronym starting with 'F') security classification.

    Hope this helped (and please excuse all the parentheses)

    Give me a keyboard, a 5 star rated Browser and a fulcrum point and I could move the world.
    FIPS...? :-)

    In NIAP site I saw the below statement.

    "The products listed below are evaluated against a NIAP-approved Protection Profile, which encompasses the security requirements and test activities suitable across the technology with no EAL assigned hence the conformance claim is "PP".

    Below that LG G5, IOS 9, Samsung devices and some other products are mentioned. Does this means these products are NIAP certified /what it differs from BlackBerry 10 NIAP certification? Any idea?

    You do know that they are moving out of the hardware business and will be focusing on just software and selling IP? Sorry, the time for "doing something" has passed.... especially for BB10. Now maybe with the licensing of their IP they will keep their version of Android going, and you'll have an option for a solution that will offer more "privacy".

    Real security... has always been more of an enterprise thing... especially with encrypted emails. And that's only if they were internal.

    Security on stand alone phones can really only go so far. Encryption and no backdoors are important but a lot of it is how well the user handles their data and it doesn't matter really what phone they use. It comes down to where the data is stored, how is it protected and how is it exchanged. The best security is going to be server based and no data is stored on the phone then it doesn't matter who gets the device cause theirs nothing on it.
