Resistance is futile: your business data will be assimilated. The release of the iPad next week has some enterprise IT managers concerned about how the devices will be used for work. "Resistance is futile," warns a article. "Your business data will be assimilated."

Security experts advise creating policies regarding acceptable use for Web browsing. Bradley Anstis of M86 Security, explains "If the iPad is using the corporate Wi-Fi to access the Web, then this should be controlled by company's current Web security technology, but what about Web surfing via the iPad's 3G connection, that goes nowhere near the corporate infrastructure?"

In addition, companies need to hash out policies for employees who will want to sync up their e-mail, calendar, and contact information with the device.
