Consulting Expertise for BlackBerry Enterprise Server
BlackBerry BES Server simplifies management and support of BlackBerry smartphones, offering a single platform for handling critical tasks such as smartphone installation, updates, and deactivation and also providing a solid foundation for data protection and high availability. BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES) delivers transparent integration between Microsoft Exchange, Novell GroupWise, or Domino email platforms and BlackBerry users and allows remote synchronization.

BlackBerry Enterprise Server Troubleshooting Help

BlackBerry BES Server provides a variety of data protection options beginning with advanced encryption of messages sent between a BlackBerry wireless handset and BES Server using AES or Triple Data Encryption Standard (Triple DES). BlackBerry BES Server also allows great versatility in adjusting degrees of protection to meet the specific requirements of your company's environment. Progent's BlackBerry authorized consultants can help your company to select powerful security features and activate them wirelessly. Examples of these wirelessly selectable security features include:

  • Lock down a smartphone
  • Erase data from a lost device
  • Lock out Bluetooth functionality
  • Enable built-in defenses against malicious attacks

BlackBerry Enterprise Server also provides flexibility in determining ways to prevent mobile users from loading or executing unsafe or unauthorized code. Progent can help you to choose blocking processes such as:

  • Specify exactly which applications are permitted on the device
  • Block third-party applications from using non-volatile storage on the smartphone
  • Determine which resources external software can access on the smartphone
  • Limit the kinds of access external software running on the device can establish
  • Prevent all third-party applications from being installed or run on the BlackBerry smartphone
