Balance technology

Protection for company data and networks without
compromising the end-user experience

BlackBerry Balance technology

BlackBerry® Balance™ technology is designed to separate and secure work and personal information on BlackBerry devices1 so users can stay connected to the important people and things in their life. Whether users are using their own device or one provided to them, BlackBerry Balance technology helps give them peace of mind that their privacy is respected while their sensitive work information is protected.

BlackBerry Balance is available with:

Key features at a glance

Manage work and personal data in a simple, secure way

Apps and data that are sent by your organization to BlackBerry devices it manages are restricted from being accessed by personal apps. This helps ensure work information is kept separate and secure. So users’ personal apps can’t access work information, and work information can’t be copied and pasted into personal apps or email messages.

Secure work information on employee-owned devices

BlackBerry Balance technology enables you to wipe all information or just work information on BlackBerry devices remotely. So if an employee using a personally-owned BlackBerry device for work purposes leaves your organization, an administrator can remotely wipe business information from the device. Or, if a device you manage is lost or stolen, an administrator can wipe all information from the device to help prevent sensitive information from falling into the wrong hands.

Minimal training requirements

Because the benefits of BlackBerry Balance technology are transparent to the end user, there's little or no need to train users on how to manage personal and work information on BlackBerry devices.

If a user attempts an action that's not permitted by IT policy or may cause secure work information to come into contact with personal applications, the action won't be permitted.

Improve employee productivity and satisfaction

Help boost productivity, improve responsiveness and lower costs by giving employees the flexibility they need and a benefit they can use for themselves, even outside of business hours. Employees can access the personal information and apps that keep them in touch with the people and things they care about, while staying connected to important work information when they need to perform.

For users, the automatic separation of work and personal apps and information means they can enjoy the fullest work-life experience on their BlackBerry devices. They’ll have access to all of their information when they need it most.

Provide devices and apps built to fit individual employee needs

Employees can choose from a variety of BlackBerry devices that are right for them and acceptable to your IT department. They can also find a number of apps to keep them organized and connected in the BlackBerry App World storefront™.

And when employees move on to another organization, BlackBerry Balance technology allows work information to be wiped while keeping their personal apps and data intact.
