You can turn on the Enterprise Service Policy to control which BlackBerry® devices can connect to the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server. After you turn on the Enterprise Service Policy, by default, the BlackBerry Enterprise Server prevents connections from new BlackBerry devices that you associate with it; however, it allows connections from BlackBerry devices that are already activated on the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. The Enterprise Service Policy also applies to devices with BlackBerry® Connect™ software, devices with BlackBerry® Built-In™ software, and devices that are running the BlackBerry® Application Suite.
You can use the Enterprise Service Policy to create allowed lists that control which BlackBerry devices users can activate on a BlackBerry Enterprise Server, over the wireless network, or over a serial connection. BlackBerry devices that meet the allowed list criteria can complete the activation process on that BlackBerry Enterprise Server.
You can define the following types of criteria:
You can also control access to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server based on specific manufacturers and models of BlackBerry devices. The BlackBerry Manager includes lists of allowed manufacturers and models based on the properties of the BlackBerry devices that are associated with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. You can clear items in these lists to prevent further connections by BlackBerry devices of a specific manufacturer or model.
You can allow a specific user to override the Enterprise Service Policy so that the user can still connect to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server even if that user's BlackBerry device or BlackBerry enabled device meets criteria that you exclude from the allowed list.
