Remote BlackBerry Control Includes Data Backup and Wipe

Research In Motion (RIM) : 14 July, 2010  (New Product)
Lost or stolen BlackBerry smart phones can be locked, wiped, located and have their data backed up using the new BlackBerry Protect application from Research in Motion
Research in Motion has released BlackBerry Protect which provides the ability to wirelessly backup, restore and locate your BlackBerry smartphone. In the event that your BlackBerry smartphone is misplaced, lost or stolen, BlackBerry Protect provides features including:

• remote device wipe
• remote device lock
• 'Lost and Found' screen
• locate device on a map
• remote activation of the BlackBerry smartphone loud ringer (to find a device you have misplaced), and
• wireless device backup and restore

BlackBerry Protect is not yet generally available. It is currently in beta phase and will be launching first in limited beta through BlackBerry Beta Zone later this week via invite codes. If you're keen to trial the beta then please get in touch and we can let you know how you can get set up.

In order to set up BlackBerry Protect, a user would need to download and install the BlackBerry Protect application on their BlackBerry smartphone. After completing the initial registration, they will be given the option to backup the data on their BlackBerry smartphone and what to back up and how often - contacts, calendar, memos, tasks, browser bookmarks, and/or text messages. Once the first back up is completed, only incremental data is backed up (i.e. new data since the last backup) to reduce data usage.
