Securing devices in your organization’s environment for personal use and work use

Your organization might want to permit BlackBerry® device users to use BlackBerry devices for both personal use and work use. For example, your organization might want to permit users to activate personal devices on a BlackBerry® Enterprise Server or permit users to use devices that your organization purchases for personal use.

If devices are running a BlackBerry® Device Software version that can distinguish between personal data and work data, security features and options on the devices allow the devices to treat your organization’s data and applications differently from personal data and applications. The features and options have the following benefits:

  • permit your organization to control access to your organization’s data and applications on the devices
  • help prevent your organization’s data from being compromised
  • provide a unified experience for users when they access personal data and work data
  • permit your organization to delete your organization’s data and applications from personal devices when users are no longer a part of your organization
