Consulting Support Services for BlackBerry Solutions
BlackBerry mobile PDAs were once among the most successful solutions for maintaining mobile connectivity to email, scheduling, web programs, and other vital business information. Progent offers Toronto, Canada businesses support from BlackBerry-premier consultants who can help companies to maintain existing BlackBerry deployments or migrate efficiently to a current mobile solution.
As the complexity of small business networks has increased, and as the demand for enterprise-class protection, reliability, and recoverability has become the norm for companies regardless of size, successful integration and support of RIM BlackBerry technology has become increasingly difficult. To deal with issues like security, business continuity, and synchronization of BlackBerry handhelds with diverse messaging servers and corporate databases, small businesses often turn to outside consulting professionals who specialize in BlackBerry integration and maintenance.
Progent offers the expertise of BlackBerry-certified engineers who can help small businesses to plan, manage, and repair BlackBerry environments economically and efficiently, dispensing with the requirement for an in-house BlackBerry solutions expert and lowering the cost and stress of maintaining mobile workers. Progent's BlackBerry specialists have extensive backgrounds working with Progent's Microsoft-certified consultants, Cisco CCIE-certified network engineers, and CISSP and CISM-certified network security professionals. This range of experience, combined with Progent's proven online support model, gives small businesses an affordable solution for incorporating RIM BlackBerry technology productively into their business information network.
Progent's engineers can assist your business with SQL Server 2016 integration and development support, Microsoft SQL 2014 configuration and Exchange setup so that your data and email systems operate optimally with BlackBerry Enterprise Server. Progent can also assist you to migrate from previous releases of BlackBerry and Microsoft technology, configure easy-to-use administration tools so you can track and support BlackBerry devices across your business, recommend security policies that make sense for your business, develop custom mobile software, and ensure that your IT network architecture is properly designed to handle your BlackBerry users. Also, Progent's business continuity consultants can help ensure that your BlackBerry data is incorporated in your scheduled backup processes so that it can be restored quickly and thoroughly.
Consulting Support for BlackBerry Enterprise Server
BlackBerry BES Server simplifies administration and support of BlackBerry smartphones, offering a single solution for controlling critical jobs like device deployment, upgrades, and deactivation while also providing a solid infrastructure for security and fault tolerance. BlackBerry Enterprise Server delivers seamless communication between Microsoft Exchange Server, Novell GroupWise, or Lotus Domino messaging platforms and BlackBerry handsets and allows over-the-air synchronization.
BlackBerry Enterprise Server features a wealth of security options beginning with automatic data encryption of information sent between a BlackBerry wireless handset and BlackBerry Enterprise Server using AES or Triple Data Encryption Standard (Triple DES). BlackBerry BES Server also permits excellent flexibility in selecting levels of security to meet the specific needs of your mobile environment. Progent's BlackBerry authorized consultants can help you to choose advanced security functions and activate them wirelessly. Samples of these over-the-air configurable security features include:
- Lock down a device
- Erase information from a missing or stolen BlackBerry smartphone
- Disable Bluetooth
- Enable built-in protection against malicious attacks
BlackBerry Enterprise Server also offers flexibility in determining mechanisms to keep BlackBerry users from loading or executing unsecure or unauthorized applications. Progent can assist you to choose blocking processes such as:
- List exactly which programs are allowed on the device
- Block third-party applications from allocating persistent storage on the smartphone
- Determine what resources third-party applications can access on the smartphone
- Limit the kinds of connections external applications running on the BlackBerry smartphone can establish
