BlackBerries and work email can be securely connected for free
19 February 2010 — 11:45 AM
Businesses that have considered mobile phone recycling so they can upgrade their employees' handsets to smartphones may make the move after a recent announcement.
To meet demand from small and medium-sized enterprises that want to be able to connect their work email to their BlackBerries, Research In Motion is offering free software which allows just this to happen.
BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express enables BlackBerry smartphones to be securely and wirelessly synchronised to work email via Microsoft Windows Small Business Server or Microsoft Exchange.
With this problem now overcome, SMEs may think now is the time to sell used mobile phones and upgrade their employee handsets to BlackBerries.
"BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express significantly raises the bar by providing a cost-effective solution that allows companies of all sizes to support enterprise-grade mobile connectivity for all employees without compromising security or manageability," said co-chief executive officer and president of Research In Motion Mike Lazaridis.
Chalk Pushcast Software 5.4 allows deeper integration with BlackBerry Enterprise Server for streamlined manageability and secure web access.
Video and audio-rich content can also be securely delivered to the smartphone.
