Managing device access to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server

You can use the Enterprise Service Policy to control which BlackBerry® devices can connect to a BlackBerry® Enterprise Server. By default, after you turn on the Enterprise Service Policy, the BlackBerry Enterprise Server permits connections from any device that you previously associated with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. The BlackBerry Enterprise Server also prevents connections from any device that you associate with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server after you turn on the Enterprise Service Policy.

You can configure an allowed list to determine which devices can access a BlackBerry Enterprise Server. A device that meets the criteria that you specify in the allowed list can associate with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server when the device activates over the wireless network.

You can define the following types of criteria:
  • specific device PINs
  • range of device PINs
  • specific manufacturers
  • specific device models

The BlackBerry Administration Service includes lists of permitted manufacturers and models of devices that you associated with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server previously.

You can permit a user to override the Enterprise Service Policy so that a device can connect to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server even if you configure the allowed list with criteria that exclude that device.

For more information, see the BlackBerry Enterprise Server Administration Guide.
