Consulting and Technical Support for BlackBerry Environments
BlackBerry wireless PDAs were at one time one of the most successful solutions for achieving anytime-anywhere connectivity to messaging, calendars, web-based programs, and other critical business data. Progent can provide Santa Ana, California companies the services of BlackBerry-certified consultants who can assist organizations to manage their BlackBerry deployments or transition smoothly to a more popular mobile solution.
As the complexity of small business IT technology has expanded, and as the need for world-class security, reliability, and recoverability has grown to be the standard for organizations of all sizes, effective deployment and maintenance of BlackBerry technology has become increasingly challenging. To address issues like data protection, business continuity, and synchronization of BlackBerry smartphones with a variety of messaging systems and company databases, small businesses often resort to external consulting professionals who specialize in RIM BlackBerry integration and maintenance.
Progent can provide the expertise of BlackBerry-qualified engineers who can assist small businesses to plan, manage, and troubleshoot BlackBerry-based solutions economically and efficiently, eliminating the need for an internal BlackBerry technology expert and reducing the cost and stress of maintaining wireless work groups. Progent's BlackBerry engineers have in-depth backgrounds working with Progent's Microsoft-certified consultants, Cisco CCIE network engineers, and CISSP and GIAC-certified network security specialists. This breadth of experience, coupled with Progent's proven remote support capabilities, gives small businesses an economical solution for integrating RIM BlackBerry technology seamlessly into their IT network.

Technical Services for BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES)
BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES) simplifies management and support of BlackBerry devices, providing a single solution for controlling key tasks like device installation, updates, and deactivation and offering a solid infrastructure for data protection and fault tolerance. BlackBerry Enterprise Server delivers transparent integration between Exchange, Novell GroupWise, or Lotus Domino messaging platforms and BlackBerry handsets and allows remote synchronization.
BES Server provides a wealth of data protection capabilities beginning with advanced encryption of messages transmitted between a BlackBerry device and BlackBerry Enterprise Server using Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) or Triple Data Encryption Standard. BlackBerry Enterprise Server also allows excellent versatility in adjusting levels of security to match the special requirements of your network. Progent's BlackBerry authorized consultants can assist you to select powerful security functions and activate them wirelessly. Examples of these over-the-air configurable security settings include:
- Lock down a BlackBerry smartphone
- Erase data from a lost or stolen smartphone
- Disable Bluetooth
- Activate built-in defenses against malware
BlackBerry Enterprise Server also provides versatility in selecting how to prevent users from installing or executing unsecure or prohibited programs. Progent can assist you to choose blocking techniques such as:
- Specify precisely which applications are allowed on the device
- Block external software from allocating persistent memory on the BlackBerry device
- Determine what functions external applications can use on the BlackBerry smartphone
- Limit the kinds of access external applications running on the device can initialize
