One of the reasons why people choose a BlackBerry device over other smartphones is that the BlackBerry service is supposed to be safer with all its advanced data encryption. Not to take anything away from Research in Motion, but Echoworx is taking this one step further by offering a cross-platform mobile encryption solution.
The unveiling of the BlackBerry Torch with an abysmal display has really been overshadowed by Research in Motion’s woes in the Middle East and other countries. As you may have heard, the BlackBerry ban on service is happening in a number of nations who have already banned, or are in the process banning the Canadian-made messenger device. In an effort to get back in, RIM is apparently installing new servers.
One of the primary reasons why corporations tend to prefer Research in Motion’s BlackBerry products is that they provide a higher level of security than other devices. The trouble is that the highest level can only be had with BES. This is no longer true.
Even if you’re not using the BlackBerry Enterprise Server and you’re simply connecting through BlackBerry Internet Service (BIS), you can try your hand at the newly announced BlackBerry Protect.
