Preventing a user from pasting work data into a personal application

To help prevent a BlackBerry® device user from pasting work data into a personal application, you can set the Enable Separation of Work Content IT policy rule to Yes so that the following guidelines apply to the user:
  • a user can cut, copy, and paste work data from a work application to another work application
  • a user cannot cut, copy, and paste work data from a work application to a personal application
  • a user can cut, copy, and paste personal data from a personal application to a work application or another personal application

If a user tries to paste work data to a personal application, the BlackBerry device displays a warning message.

By default, the Enable Separation of Work Content IT policy rule is set to No. The device does not distinguish between work data and personal data.

If you set the Enable Separation of Work Content IT policy rule to Yes, a user can select a work email account in the Send Using field of a draft email message, paste work data into the body of the email message, and then change the selected work email account in the Send Using field to a personal email account before the user sends the email message. If you would like to prevent the user from changing the work email account to a personal email account, you should also set the Require Work Resources For Conducting Work Activities IT policy rule to Yes. By default, the Require Work Resources For Conducting Work Activities IT policy rule is set to No.
