You are rightfully concerned. A user could download BlackBerry application OTA (over the air), install it and that can be used to breach security of your environment.
As far as I know, and BES is not my area of expertise, you can restrict corporate devices what applications they can run and, may be, what applications they can install.
This may be a more reliable approach because you can still let people use any browser they want yet not allow them run or install not autorized software on blackberries.
