    Hello to all!

    I am very new to the droid. I need a little bit of direction with the risks of the droid in the workplace environment.

    A few questions:

    1. Do I really need to be worried about malware/ viruses being downloaded by users on our wireless network?
    2. What (if any) steps do I need to take as an administrator to make sure the droid is safe for our users. (Disabling downloading, etc...)
    3. What are some recommended apps to help make the droid better for the workplace?

    I ask all of these things due to a recent event were the network administrator thinks droids are a threat to the network.

    Any advice you could give would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,

    Jeff

    1) IMHO No....
    2) Define Safe?... Disabling downloads and you might as well give them a flip phone.
    3) There are a lot of good productivity apps. Check out appbrain.com


    And Welcome to the forum.

    Thanks for the reply..

    Not to sound like an idiot.... but, can you tell me exactly why we dont need to worry about a virus or malware? I know that its built on the linux kernal.. which is enough for me.... but I need this for proof to stand behind me in a meeting in the am. Help me out here.... I love the droid and they are going to take everything "droid" away!!

    Thanks Again!
