Understanding application control policies

The BlackBerry® Enterprise Server application control policy rules are designed to allow or prevent the installation of specific third-party applications on the BlackBerry device, and to limit the permissions of third-party applications that are installed on the BlackBerry device.

After you assign a software configuration to a BlackBerry device, you can set the BlackBerry Enterprise Server to send the software configuration to the BlackBerry device over the wireless network. The user can use the application loader tool of the BlackBerry® Desktop Manager to install or upgrade to the BlackBerry® Device Software in the software configuration.

To control or change the behavior of third-party applications on the BlackBerry device, you can set an application control policy and assign values to the application control policy rules. If a default application control policy does not exist, the user can change some application control settings on the BlackBerry device. If a default application control policy exists, the user cannot change the application control settings.
