Default PDADefense equivalent

Please Login to Remove!


I just purchased my first BlackBerry phone and would like to know the best encryption application available for this phone.

I have been a long time user of Pocket PC. The encryption program I use is called PDADefense. This program is similar to Minisafe and Cryptmagic. However, I also have the choice of encrypting any application residing in the PDA (ie. encrypt the address book, file explorer, backup function, etc.). Furthermore, the whole content can also be encrypted.

I would like to know if there is such a program available for the BlackBerry. I have searched Handango and so far have found nothing except for MiniSafe and Cryptmagic which confine you to put the information in one specific folder for encryption.

PDADefense is very similar to PGP Desktop, where you have the option to encrypt any folder you like or the whole drive in your computer.

Thank you.

An option encrypting the all contents of your BB is built into the OS from version 4
