Your users depend on their desktop applications to work flawlessly. They also expect their phones to work flawlessly. Thus it’s doubly important to make sure that a desktop application that integrates with their phone works as expected every time, or frustration sets in, which means a call to the helpdesk.
This is why it’s important not to depend on your users to configure the settings for Blackberry Desktop.
That’s where PolicyPak comes in. We deliver the exact corporate settings and ensure that your users can’t meddle with them. PolicyPak delivers, enforces, remediates and locks down your users’ applications, including Blackberry Desktop, so that they get the same experience, every time they launch it.
Our PolicyPak software snaps-in to the Group Policy Editor and gives you the same user interface as Blackberry Desktop itself. When it comes to application updates, you, the network administrator, want to manage this function and not leave it up to your users. PolicyPak offers this ability to so many applications, including Blackberry Desktop. Make sure that “Automatically check for updates to Blackberry Desktop Software” is always unchecked. Then totally lock it down with PolicyPak’s signature feature, “Perform ACL Lockdown,” which locks settings all the way into the registry itself. This prevents registry savvy users from modifying your setting values within the registry.
Bluetooth is very important to your users, so deliver the proper Bluetooth configuration setting values that they need every time. Make sure that “Allow Bluetooth Connections” is checked and make sure that “Ask me before making a connection” is always selected. Once again, don’t just deliver your setting values, lock them down with ACL Lockdown.
Your users need to ensure that their phone data synchronizes with their desktop. Use PolicyPak to ensure that “Organizer Data” is always synchronized.
With PolicyPak, you’re the one in control.
Besides, once you’re using PolicyPak to manage Blackberry Desktop, you’ll also get to manage all your other enterprise desktop applications the same way: Flash, Lync, Java, Firefox, and any custom applications you have. They’re 100% included – absolutely free.
It’s all included when you’re a PolicyPak Professional customer.
PolicyPak was designed by Group Policy MVP Jeremy Moskowitz – who “wrote the book” on Group Policy, runs GPanswers.com, and lives and breathes Group Policy and enterprise software deployments and desktop lockdown.
When you’re ready to get serious about managing Blackberry Desktop, PolicyPak is ready for you.
