Controlling the browsing traffic in the BlackBerry Browser

A BlackBerry® device user can use the BlackBerry® Browser to browse the Internet and your organization’s intranet. The device does not consider the BlackBerry Browser to be a work application. You can change the behavior of the BlackBerry Browser depending on the IT policies that you configure in your organization's environment:
  • If you do not want users to browse using the Internet Browser, set the Allow IBS Browser IT policy rule to No.
  • If you do not want users to browse using Wi-Fi® hotspots, set the Allow Hotspot Browser IT policy rule to No.
  • If you do not want users to browse using WAP, set the Enable WAP Config IT policy rule to No.
  • If you want users to browse using only the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server, set the Allow Other Browser Services IT policy rule to No.
  • If you do not want users to browse using the BlackBerry Enterprise Server, set the Allow Browser IT policy rule to No.

You can also configure pull rules to prevent a user from accessing specific web servers using the BlackBerry Browser. For more information about configuring pull rules, see the BlackBerry Enterprise Server Administration Guide.

BlackBerry® 6 permits you to control the browser transport selection for the BlackBerry Browser. For more information about browser transport selection, see the Selecting Browser Transport Technical Note.
