The BlackBerry Enterprise Server includes preconfigured IT policies that you can use to manage the security of the BlackBerry Enterprise Solution. The Default IT policy includes IT policy rules that are configured to indicate the default behavior of the BlackBerry device or BlackBerry Desktop Software.
After a BlackBerry device user activates a BlackBerry device, the BlackBerry Enterprise Server automatically sends to the BlackBerry device the IT policy that you assigned to the user account or group. By default, if you do not assign an IT policy to the user account or group, the BlackBerry Enterprise Server sends the Default IT policy. If you delete an IT policy that you assigned to the user account or group, the BlackBerry Enterprise Server automatically re-assigns the Default IT policy to the user account and resends the Default IT policy to the BlackBerry device.
