RIM announced “BlackBerry Balance technology!” which is part of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0.3 release and also BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express, and it is a major step forward for today’s IT managers who are responsible for BlackBerry smartphone deployments.
Features of BlackBerry Balance:
- Manage IT policies that define a line between work and personal data: Applications and data pushed to BlackBerry smartphones from the BlackBerry Enterprise Server are identified and restricted from being accessed by personal applications (if the IT policy is set to this restriction) to help keep business information secure. Personal applications cannot access business information, and business information cannot be copy-and-pasted into personal applications or email messages.
- Use your existing BlackBerry Enterprise Server infrastructure, so there’s little or no need to add to your current architecture.
- Keep data secure and protect the network: BlackBerry Balance technology allows business information to be removed from smartphones while leaving personal information intact. If an employee leaves the organization, administrators can remotely wipe only business information from a BlackBerry smartphone. Or, if a device is lost or stolen, an administrator can wipe all information from the device to help ensure both the business’ and the user’s personal information don’t fall into the wrong hands.
