IBM bans Siri over security concerns, according to a new report. Behind IBM ban: Siri queries are stored in unknown place and manner.
In an interview with MIT's Technology Review, IBM CIO Jeanette Horan revealed that Siri, Apple's voice-activated personal assistant app, is banned on IBM-issued iPhones. The reason IBM bans Siri? The company has no control over where or how the spoken queries are stored. "We're just extraordinarily conservative," Horan told a reporter with the Technology Review. "It's the nature of our business."
Also banned, according to the Review: iCloud, Apple's file-storage system. IBM employees, the Technology Review reports, "use an IBM-hosted version called MyMobileHub."
