Well, with the RIM crisis it has worked in my favor that corporate has decided to give me the ok to go to smartphones.
Now, I have been looking at Good and some other vendors that provide software to place control on smart phones but I know very little about this and was hoping I could get some feedback from others regarding there experience with smartphones and what software they are using to control there enviornment along with any other network precautions you have implemented.

Thank you for your input

Good isn't just about mobile device management, but. Includes email synchronisation, calendar, contacts and for iOS, a secure browser enabling access to corporate intranet sites and other content.

In addition, it enables you to configure BES like IT policies to secure and control your SmartPhones.

Operation is similar to BES (in fact RIM licence some technology from Good) and Good supports both Android and iOS devices - both Smartphone and tablet as well as Symbian S60 and Windows Mobile with further support due shortly.

Obviously other options exist such as ActiveSync with which you can perform some device management but full MDM policies requires a separate solution.
