I'm not aware of any PC software that will allow you to do what you want, other than using a VPN to connect to your work Exchange server. Talk to your IT support people about that.
If the BlackBerry is the only way they are going to let you connect to the corporate servers, then a PlayBook may be a viable option. The Bridge software will allow you to access e-mail, contacts, calendar etc from the BlackBerry. Add a BlueTooth keyboard and an HDMI connection to a Monitor or TV and you should be set. You will also be able to take your BlackBerry and PlayBook to Starbucks and work from there and be secure. This is the scenario that the PlayBook was designed to solve. But again, talk to your IT support people, they probably won't respond to surprises well.
My other Blackberry is a PlayBook.
