Default Help with Security

Please Login to Remove!

New to BES, my company is very concerned about security. What are some recommended security policies to set. I know that we do not want users to be able to connect via desktop manager or bluetooth.

Any help would be great.

Thanks,

I guess it's not really clear what your intentions are.
Do you want to completely disable the use of Desktop Manager?
I don't think you can do that. Using IT Policy settings, you can certainly limit its functionality so they user can't sync with it, or can't use media manager, etc... but the only way to completely shut it down is to prevent it from being installed on the PC.

You can disable Bluetooth Sync with an IT Policy.
Set 'DISABLE DESKTOP CONNECTIVITY = TRUE' in the Bluetooth Policy Group.

I would really like the ability to disable as much desktop connectivity as possible. What are some fields that would help?

Any help is much appreciated.

+1 to bertiebassett and if I were you, I would sit down for an hour or so and go through the whole IT policy. It isn't too terribly large and the descriptions of what each does are good for the most part. You will want to be familiar with this anyway, so no time like the present to start!

You can of course use AD policy or a third party product to remove the ability of the specific USB device (8100, 8800 etc) to connect to the PC, which would acheive what you want.
