Can anyone confirm if pgp works with BES Express? In officiallyl blackberry documentation, it states that pgp is supported with BESx; however, the symantec website FAQ states that the PGP Support Package for Blackberry is not support with BESx. Which is it? Thx

That's the BEST news I've heard all day. Do you know what software/license I need to get to simply get PGP working in conjuction with the BES blackberry handhelds?
i already have the latest version of BESx working in conjunction with MS Exchange 2010, with enterprise emails working fine.
The users won't be using desktops/laptops/Outlook. They'll simply be using their BB devices for enterprise emails.

Hi guys, Sorry to bump this i would of made a new thread but since you were already on topic and you guys seem to know what you are talking about i will post here.
There are numerous companies based around the wolrd that offer a .. More secure version of BlackBerry BES for example : http://www.phantomsecure.com
I highly suspect they are just using a standard Blackberry Enterprise Server with IT policies. But never the less i have came into contact with one of these devices and would like to confirm exactly what it is that they are doing to the device config-wise.
They claim multiple features that sound so familiar to BES features. However it starts to get different when they claim that no law enforcment agencies can access their data.
I understand that they are hosting in a off-shore server to protect there physical access but if they are using BES server surely the Law/Government would be able get some master key from Symantec or Blackberry. By the way, Please can no one send me links about the recent news atricles in India about the RIM encryption being broken as this is totally separate. I have spoken to numerous lawyers and they have clients who have been caught with these special blackberrys and the police/government cannot access. So i would like someone to contact me as i am trying to see how true their claims are and possibly create a proof-of-concept setup myself just to see how the innerworkings are.

Phantomsecure uses the PGP Support package from Symantec, no matter what they say its mostly lies. Also they only have a public key, and a generic private key. Basically this means they have a master key, to decrypt everyone's messages. You have to be very careful what company you choose to go with.
I have heard Myntex in Canada is a nice company to deal with, but do your research!!
Another company that was great until it recently has had massive outages is logicshield. They magically went offline then while offline moved panama to Switzerland in about 5 days.
If you need some options let me know
