10 top iPhone apps for IT pros

Want to prove that your iPhone is good for business? Here are 10 useful apps that can improve your IT operations.

Cisco Security Intelligence To Go v1.1

Cisco Security Intelligence to Go v1.1 (otherwise known as SIO To Go) is a nice pocket companion that keeps you updated on breaking security news. It aggregates up to 16 security news feeds in a single screen, which can be a bit overwhelming at first glance. When you find an article of interest, the app opens up a Safari Web browser on your phone so you can read the details.

There is a similar iPhone app called iAdviseMe ($1) that will pull security alerts from a variety of public sources, but Cisco has a better designed app. This is largely due to the online reputation scores that it compiles as part of its SenderBase service (which the company acquired from IronPort systems in 2007).

You can also quickly see if you are dealing with a spammer or phishing site. You just enter the domain name in the app, and SIO To Go will offer information such as the domain owner records, any suspicious e-mail or Web traffic, and other data that can be useful to determine the provenance of the domain.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
