Default where do I start with Application control policies?

Please Login to Remove!

I have been reading up on the Malware threats against BlackBerrys. I would like to look into creating application control policies/software configuration policies but am concerned I will bite off more than I can chew (or open a pandoras box of problems). Can someone help me figure where/how to start creating application control policies. Do you need the actual alx,cod,jad files for all applications to control them? Do I have to make application policies for all apps on my users devices? BlackBerry's documents (I haven't found many) are vague and confusing... they assume you are well versed in their material.

you just need the .alx file installed on the admin box and those will be the files that are allowed out of the box. for everything else you can disable downloading of 3rd party apps.

you have 2 options.. either disable 3 party apps via IT policy. Or, if you want to control what's allowed, make your IT policy allow 3rd party apps, and use Handheld software configuration policy to define what apps are allowed to be installed.
