Preconfigured IT policies

The BlackBerry® Enterprise Server includes the following preconfigured IT policies that you can change to create IT policies that meet the requirements of your organization.

Preconfigured IT policy

Description

Default

This policy includes all the standard IT policy rules that are set on the BlackBerry Enterprise Server.

Basic Password Security

Similar to the Default IT policy, this policy also requires a basic password that users can use to log in to the BlackBerry device. Users must change the passwords regularly. The IT policy includes a password timeout that locks the BlackBerry device.

Medium Password Security

Similar to the Default IT policy, this policy also requires a complex password that users can use to log in to the BlackBerry device. Users must change the passwords regularly. This policy includes a maximum password history and turns off Bluetooth® technology on the BlackBerry device.

Medium Security with No 3rd Party Applications

Similar to the Medium Password Security, this policy requires a complex password that a user must change frequently, a security timeout, and a maximum password history. This policy prevents users from making their BlackBerry devices discoverable by other Bluetooth enabled devices and turns off the ability of BlackBerry devices to download third-party applications.

Advanced Security

Similar to the Default IT policy, this IT policy also requires a complex password that a user must change frequently, a password timeout that locks the BlackBerry device, and a maximum password history. This policy restricts Bluetooth technology on the BlackBerry device, turns on strong content protection, turns off USB mass storage, and requires the BlackBerry device to encrypt external file systems.

Advanced Security with No 3rd Party Applications

Similar to the Advanced Security IT policy, this IT policy requires a complex password that a user must change frequently, a password timeout that locks the BlackBerry device, and a maximum password history. This policy restricts Bluetooth technology on the BlackBerry device, turns on strong content protection, turns off USB mass storage, requires the BlackBerry device to encrypt external file systems, and turns off the ability of BlackBerry devices to download third-party applications.
