Free BlackBerry Management Center for Small Business Now Available

BMC Screenshot - Protect 

We have been keeping all of you up to date on the progress of RIM’s BlackBerry Management Center solution for awhile now. The solution is quite promising for small businesses and even families with multiple BlackBerrys. It lets you centralize the management of all of the BIS email accounts along with managing their BlackBerry Protect settings. In other words it is sort of a cloud BES with a lite subset of features that is totally free as a service.

RIM is clearly trying to help small businesses manage multiple BlackBerrys and protect from the security implications caused by a lost device. RIM let us know about Gartners estimate of $2500 per lost device a bit back and that cost is not going down. To sum it all up BlackBerry Management Center is just one of the ways that RIM is making an effort to help small businesses manage, secure and protect their BlackBerry devices and information.

Features include:

  • 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
