Can BES10 disable (off) the Develpment Mode in users' Z10/Q10/Q5 phone?
If yes, how?
Reason: prevent user from installing Android Apps (insecure) in the phone which might steal info from the Work Area.

There is a setting in the policy "Restrict dev mode":
"Specify whether development mode is restricted for BlackBerry device users. Development mode allows software development tools to connect to a device and also allows you or a user to install applications directly on the device using a USB or Wi-Fi connection. If you set this rule to Yes, users can only download and install applications from the BlackBerry World storefront and you can also send applications to devices using the BlackBerry Administration Service."
If you deploy the workspace via BES your users can only install apps in the workspace that you provide.
In the private space they can still do what they want but apps can not access the workspace data.
If you want to have full controll you have to choose the regulated mode (workspace only) which needs a EMM Regulated licence and a data plan.
