While the announcement of the BlackBerry Management Center went mostly unheralded, it really is quite a compelling offering from RIM for small businesses of under 100 users. The goal is to offer small businesses a solution to manage not only business owned, but also personal BlackBerry devices in a manner that is easy for all. As detailed in the video above, BlackBerry Management Center has some great features built into it:
Wirelessly back up BlackBerry smartphones automatically on a daily, weekly or monthly basis to aid in the recovery of lost business-related content stored on the handset
Protect content on an employee's lost or stolen BlackBerry smartphone by remotely locking it and, if necessary, wiping the contents, including the microSD card
Locate a lost BlackBerry smartphone by remotely locking it, initiating a loud ring, and displaying a message on the Home screen
Easily restore the settings and content on a new or replacement device
Reset a password
Aside from offering the security solutions users would expect, BlackBerry Management Center is available for free. If you're looking for a better solution of protecting devices but not looking to fork over a ton of cash, then BlackBerry Management Center is certainly worth a look for business owners.
