Question Security Lock Down with Desktop Manager?

Please Login to Remove!

In our organization we have one user using a BlackBerry and the Blackberry Desktop Manager Software. There is no BES system in our setup.The recent document from BlackBerry, "Protecting the Blackberry device platform against malware" recommends various IT policy settings to limit exposure to malware.

My question is this: In a non-BES environment, how would one set those IT policy settings on the BB unit?

Alternatively, is there a way to construct an IT policy file without using BES? I think I read a knowledgebase article which outlined a way to put a preconstructed policy.bin file into the desktop manager software folder and have that applied at the next synchronization.

Any ideas would be appreciated!

BES is required to send an IT policy.

Wirelessly posted (Cingular 7130c: BlackBerry7130/4.1.0 Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1 VendorID/102)

And the security exploit requires BES. If your on BIS only there's nothing to worry about.

Thanks for setting me straight on the BES exploit.

As a followup question, is there any way to modify such security options using the Desktop Software or Handheld itself?
