| | Web Filtering for BES/BB Devices?
Please Login to Remove!
Our network management is beginning to look at possibility of web filtering/web reporting on our company blackberrys connected on our BES GroupWise 4.1.6. I'm aware that there are two internet browsers, the Blackberry browser and service provider browsers and that you can turn them on/off at the BES. Also, I'm aware that you can create an IT policy to use pull authorizations to grant/restrict specific web sites.
Basically, I'm trying to verify if there's any other tools to control, filter, and get reporting on browser activity for the devices? Aside from developing your own tools to accomplish these things, are there any good known third party web filtering tools that besides filter desktops (which we do here, but I'm not sure with what product) will also filter BES/blackberrys for a corporation?
If a third party filtering tool can also filter a company's BES/Blackberrys, what is needed to be done to make sure the web browsing traffic only flows through this software/firewall?
I've opened an incident with RIM, but the tech support person didn't seem to know too much besides what I know already.
