    If you go into the passcode settings, there is in fact a setting called "Allow access to Siri when locked with a passcode" (Yes/No). I suspect that currently, companies cannot mandate this setting in the same way as they can with the passcode. But I'm sure that can (and will) be easily resolved in a relatively short amount of time.

    Personally, I think I would enable this setting for personal use of the phone. Otherwise anyone can pick up your phone and use Siri. Why would you want to allow that if you've botherred to set a passcode?
