RIM Offers Free BlackBerry Enterprise Server Software



Research in Motion has released the next version of its free BlackBerry server software that wirelessly synchronises BlackBerry smartphones with Microsoft Exchange and Windows Small Business Server.

Keen to seed technologies that support its product in the fast-growing market for enterprise-level remote device usage, BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express 5.0.2 is designed to allow businesses to wirelessly connect BlackBerry smartphones to the corporate network at no charge.

Built with the same security architecture as its BlackBerry Enterprise Server product, RIM says that the Express edition includes a subset of the over 500 IT policies and features available with the full-blown BlackBerry Enterprise Server software. It can be installed on the same server as Microsoft Exchange or Windows Small Business Server to connect up to 75 BlackBerry smartphones, or on a separate server to support up to 2000 devices per server.

For the internationally diverse IT manager, it is also worth noting that BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express is now available in seven languages including English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Japanese and Brazilian Portuguese.
