On top of the many flashy features of Apple's new iOS 9 devices, there's another reason business owners might want to upgrade their electronic devices: To ramp up cybersecurity.
Apple's latest line, unveiled Wednesday, is expected to require a six-digit code, and sometimes a fingerprint, to access the features. That's a step up from the four-digit code used on current models, and one expert said it could be motivation for enterprise customers to make the switch to Apple products.
"This is a big deal, and honestly our friends at Apple are leading the way here," Caleb Barlow, IBM security vice president, said Friday on CNBC's "Squawk on the Street." "It's time to step it up a notch, both on our own devices and on what companies require for logins."
