BlackBerry Protect Beta: Enterprise Security in Your Hand

by Andrew Garcia
Research In Motion's BlackBerry Protect looks like a promising way for consumer BlackBerry users to back up their mobile device data and locate or secure the device in case of loss or theft. Here, eWEEK Labs provides a quick walkthrough of the beta software and web portal, which RIM says will be available for no additional charge once it officially launches.
Andrew cut his teeth as a systems administrator at the University of California, learning the ins and outs of server migration, Windows desktop management, Unix and Novell administration. After a tour of duty as a team leader for PC Magazine's Labs, Andrew turned to system integration - providing network, server, and desktop consulting services for small businesses throughout the Bay Area. With eWEEK Labs since 2003, Andrew concentrates on wireless networking technologies while moonlighting with Microsoft Windows, mobile devices and management, and unified communications. He produces product reviews, technology analysis and opinion pieces for eWEEK.com, eWEEK magazine, and the Labs' Release Notes blog.
