Default Mobile Hot Spot Security

Please Login to Remove!


Using BES 5.0.2. I am about to upgrade our BlackBerry devices to OS7.1 and want to allow some users to be able to use their devices to host a mobile hotspot and some not. I think I just need to import new IT policy rule definitions for BB Device Software 7.1, which adds a rule to the WiFi category to allow or disallow. What I also want to do is set a password pattern (minimum length, hide, etc) , security type (WPA2 Personal) and possibly limit the number of devices to connect (to one device only). I have read the rule descriptions and can't see how to do this apart from on the device itself. Is it possible to govern these options through the BES IT policies? Please accept my apologies if there is an obvious way, and I should have spotted it.

Thank you very much for your help.
