Consulting Support Services for BlackBerry Technology
BlackBerry wireless smartphones were at one time one of the most successful solutions for achieving location-independent connectivity to messaging, scheduling, web programs, and other vital business information. Progent can provide Augusta-Richmond County, Georgia companies support from BlackBerry-qualified consultants who can assist businesses to maintain their BlackBerry deployments or migrate efficiently to a modern mobile platform.
As the complexity of small company IT technology has increased, and as the need for world-class protection, reliability, and disaster recovery has grown to be the norm for organizations of all sizes, effective integration and support of RIM BlackBerry technology has grown more difficult. To deal with issues such as data protection, business continuity, and synchronization of BlackBerry handhelds with a variety of email systems and company databases, small businesses frequently resort to outside consulting professionals who offer expertise in BlackBerry installation and troubleshooting.
Progent offers the services of BlackBerry-qualified consultants who can help small businesses to plan, manage, and repair BlackBerry solutions affordably and effectively, eliminating the requirement for an in-house BlackBerry technology specialist and lowering the cost and stress of supporting wireless work groups. Progent's BlackBerry technology engineers have extensive experience working with Progent's Microsoft-certified consultants, Cisco CCIE network engineers, and CISM and CISA-certified network security professionals. This breadth of knowledge, combined with Progent's proven online service delivery capabilities, gives small companies an economical alternative for incorporating RIM BlackBerry technology seamlessly into their information system.
Progent's consultants can assist you with SQL Server 2016 integration support, Microsoft SQL Server 2014 deployment and Exchange Server setup so that your data and email infrastructure work efficiently with BlackBerry BES Server. Progent can also help you to migrate from older releases of BlackBerry and Microsoft software, configure easy-to-use administration utilities so you can monitor and support BlackBerry devices throughout your company, define security policies that are right for your company, develop custom wireless applications, and make sure that your network infrastructure is appropriately configured to accommodate your BlackBerry clients. In addition, Progent's business continuity consultants can help ensure that your BlackBerry information is incorporated in your scheduled backup procedures so that it can be recovered quickly and safely.
Consulting Support Services for BlackBerry Enterprise Server
BlackBerry BES Server streamlines administration and maintenance of RIM BlackBerry wireless handsets, offering a single platform for controlling critical tasks such as device installation, updates, and retirement and also providing a solid foundation for data protection and fault tolerance. BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES) delivers transparent communication between Microsoft Exchange Server, Groupwise, or Lotus Domino email servers and BlackBerry smartphones and allows wireless synchronization.
BlackBerry BES Server provides a variety of data protection options starting with automatic data encryption of messages sent between a BlackBerry wireless handset and BES Server based on Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) or Triple DES. BES Server also allows great versatility in selecting degrees of security to match the special requirements of your network. Progent's BlackBerry certified consultants can assist you to choose advanced security functions and enable them remotely. Examples of these over-the-air selectable security features include:
- Disable a BlackBerry device
- Erase information from a missing or stolen BlackBerry smartphone
- Lock out Bluetooth functionality
- Enable built-in protection against malicious attacks
BES Server also offers flexibility in determining how to keep users from installing or executing unsecure or prohibited code. Progent can help you to select protective processes such as:
- List exactly what programs are permitted on the device
- Block external applications from allocating non-volatile memory on the BlackBerry device
- Determine which resources third-party programs can access on the smartphone
- Restrict the types of connections external programs running on the BlackBerry smartphone can establish
- Prevent all external programs from being loaded or run on the device
