Default BIS vs BES defined

Please Login to Remove!

Ok, im just gonna n00b it up and throw this out there cuz i just cant seem to find this basic info:

What is the main differences of BIS vs BES?

Are there things you can do with a BES account you cant do with a BIS? And vice versa?

Im not looking for a super deep complicated breakdown, just something simple. But if ya wanna get detailed and go off feel free!

Default Bes V Bis

BES - corporate solution, 3DES encryption, more functionality i.e. PIM sync, IT policies so BES admins can decide who can do what on their devices.

BIS - integrates with your personal email
