If a media card is inserted in the BlackBerry® device, this rule specifies whether the media files that are located in the media card are encrypted to the user password and the device-generated key.

Default value

The default value is Allowed. If a media card is inserted in the BlackBerry device, encryption of the media files that are in the media card is allowed.


Change this rule to Required or Disallowed to prevent a user from changing this setting on the BlackBerry device.


A BlackBerry device can use this IT policy rule only if you also configure the Content Protection Strength IT policy rule.
