Default Wireless Remote Control of the BlackBerry device !

Please Login to Remove!

Today on the German Connect with the Experts in Frankfurt "B*Remote" was first shown: The first software for controlling the BlackBerry device WIRELESS ever:



It enables the user help desk to completly control the BlackBerry Device from an administration interface ! Works great and looks good.



You might want to check this out at BB & Fernzugriff

Heres the product sheet:

Sounds interesting. A tad pricey. But my biggest concern is security. Does this open a hole that would allow others to remote control the device?

Actually I dont think so.

The workflow is as followed.

- The user is starting the B*Remote Client on the Device. He has to click on "Connect" in there. This makes the BlackBerry able for remote control as it apears in the B*Remote Web Applicationserver (usually placed on the intranet)
- THe user help desk logs on to the B*Remote Web Applicationserver and is able to see all devices connected to THIS Server
- The user is ALLWAYS able to quit the remote Control by pushing the Disconnect Button in the B*Remote Client.
- There is no hidden backdoor to bypass the Connect to the Application server.

I personally think this will be great for all user help desks. Even the pricing is quite fair because its licensing only counts the number of administrators logged into the admin interface of the application server, NOT by the number of controlled devices or even the numer of rolled out R*Remote clients. Usually that means most company only need one or maybe two licenses at all....

Hope this is usefull, if you got questions ask me. today is the second day of CWTE and Ill be able to check everything out....

This is very interesting...I wonder if they have any type of trial version.

Would be a great thing for our clients who have 500+ end users who have no idea how to do anything on their blackberry.

Hi, I am curious to know who your crack dealer is. It must be some really good stuff if you want $1,450 for a BlackBerry app.
