BES Policy to stop third party software installs

Being new to BES I am hoping someone can let me know if there is a policy setting on the BES server IT policy that will prevent my users from downloading and installing third party applications ontheir Blackberry's.


I need our blackberry's to only have business software and no third party applications.


Any help appreciated.

Re: BES Policy to stop third party software installs

yes it is possible (as a BES user I loathe my admins everyday)

there are docs available on the blackberry.com website : search for "Policy Reference Guide"
