Consulting Support for RIM BlackBerry Environments
BlackBerry mobile PDAs from Research in Motion are one of the most popular solutions for maintaining location-independent access to email, scheduling, web programs, and other critical business data. As the sophistication of small business IT technology has expanded, and as the demand for world-class security, reliability, and recoverability has become the standard for organizations of all sizes, successful integration and support of RIM BlackBerry technology has become increasingly challenging. To deal with issues like data protection, disaster recovery, and synchronization of BlackBerry smartphones with a variety of email systems and company databases, small businesses frequently turn to external consulting firms who offer expertise in BlackBerry installation and maintenance.
Progent can provide the expertise of BlackBerry-qualified consultants who can assist small organizations to plan, manage, and repair BlackBerry solutions economically and efficiently, eliminating the need for an in-house BlackBerry technology specialist and lowering the cost and stress of maintaining wireless workers. Progent's BlackBerry technology engineers have extensive experience working with Progent's Microsoft-Gold certified experts, Cisco CCIE network engineers, and CISA and GIAC-certified network security specialists. This range of experience, combined with Progent's proven remote support capabilities, provides small businesses a budget-friendly solution for integrating RIM BlackBerry technology seamlessly into their information network.
Progent's consultants can assist you with SQL Server 2016 integration and development support, Microsoft SQL 2014 deployment and Exchange setup so that your database and email infrastructure work optimally with BlackBerry Enterprise Server. Progent can also assist you to migrate from older releases of BlackBerry and Microsoft software, configure streamlined administration utilities to help you track and control BlackBerry devices throughout your business, recommend security policies that are right for your company, develop custom mobile software, and make sure that your IT network infrastructure is properly configured to handle your BlackBerry clients.

Technical Services for BlackBerry Enterprise Server
BlackBerry Enterprise Server streamlines management and support of RIM BlackBerry wireless handsets, offering a single platform for controlling key jobs like smartphone installation, upgrades, and deactivation while also providing a solid infrastructure for security and fault tolerance. BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES) supports seamless communication between Exchange, Groupwise, or IBM Lotus Domino email platforms and BlackBerry users and allows over-the-air synchronization.
BlackBerry Enterprise Server provides a wealth of data protection capabilities beginning with automatic encryption of messages sent between a BlackBerry wireless handset and BES Server using Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) or Triple Data Encryption Standard. BES Server also allows excellent flexibility in adjusting degrees of protection to match the special needs of your mobile network. Progent's BlackBerry certified engineers can help your company to choose advanced security features and enable them remotely. Examples of these over-the-air selectable security settings include:
- Disable a device
- Wipe data from a misplaced or stolen BlackBerry device
- Lock out Bluetooth
- Activate internal defenses against malware
BlackBerry BES Server also provides versatility in determining mechanisms to prevent BlackBerry users from installing or running unsecure or prohibited code. Progent can assist you to choose protective processes such as:
- List exactly which programs are permitted on the device
- Prevent external programs from using non-volatile storage on the device
- Determine what resources third-party programs can use on the smartphone
- Restrict the types of connections external applications running on the BlackBerry device can establish
- Prevent all third-party applications from being loaded or run on the BlackBerry device
