Protecting a BlackBerry device using application control policy rules

You can use application control policy rules to specify whether a user can install a BlackBerry® device application that uses the Text-To-Speech API, and to specify the permissions of the application. For example, you can use application control policy rules to specify whether an application can access the following items on the BlackBerry device:
  • data or applications (for example, messaging, phone)
  • BlackBerry device key store
  • User Authenticator API, which permits the registration of drivers so that a user can unlock the device using two-factor authentication

You can also use application control policy rules to specify the types of connections that the application that is running on the device can open (for example, local, internal, and external connections).
