BlackBerry Balance

BlackBerry Balance is a feature of BlackBerry Enterprise Server that allows IT administrators to deploy, secure and remove specific applications and data on BlackBerry smartphones.

Research In Motion introduced BlackBerry Balance technology in 2011 in response to the consumerization of IT trend. Its goal is to give IT administrators control over corporate assets on employees’ mobile devices while leaving personal assets unmanaged. Although BlackBerry Enterprise Server is mobile device management (MDM) software, BlackBerry Balance more closely resembles a type of mobile application manager (MAM).

BlackBerry Balance technology is available in BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0.3 and above and on devices running BlackBerry OS 6.0 or higher.
