Default SD encryption via policy

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,
we have encryption distributed to devices via our BES using content protection, however I'm wanting to encrypt the sd cards in the devices, can anyone tell me:

a. how to do this and
b. what affect this will have on the user, do they have to decrypt images for example in order to get them off their phones to their pcs? If so how do they do it?

We have a mixture of devices
8310
7730
7100
8700
8707
9500
on BES 4.1.4.15

thanks for your help
Pete

You can encrypt the media cards with the IT policy and even set it to the device password. To remove the files, they will have to have desktop manager installed with media manager to decrypt.

Or they can just e-mail the files to themselves and retrieve them on the mail client.

The horrible Roxio Media Manager did not decrypt the images for me. The only way I can do it is to send via e-mail.

As you normally only have media files like mp3, pics, movies on the SD card, you probably don't want to encrypt it. Address book, emails, contacts etc. are stored on the internal memory and not on the SD card.

Security Policy Group > External File System Encryption Level

No, it does not affect all of the devices you have listed.
Most of the handhelds in your list don't even have a media card slot.
Those that do have a slot also need handheld software 4.2 or later.
