RIM recently announced the BlackBerry Management Center for Small Businesses – a free online service for small businesses to centrally manage company – or employee owned BlackBerry smartphones in the cloud and protect business-related content stored on the handsets. It is designed for businesses with up to 100 BlackBerry smartphones that access email services from an Internet Service Provider (ISP), or web-based email services like Gmail, Hotmail and Yahoo.
The BlackBerry Management Center allows small businesses to :-
- Wirelessly back up BlackBerry smartphones automatically on a daily, weekly or monthly basis to aid in the recovery of lost business-related content stored on the handset
- Protect content on an employee’s lost or stolen BlackBerry smartphone by remotely locking it and, if necessary, wiping the contents, including the microSD card
- Locate a lost BlackBerry smartphone by remotely locking it, initiating a loud ring, and displaying a message on the Home screen
- Easily restore the settings and content on a new or replacement device
- Reset a password
