Protect Service Offered to Blackberry Users

Wednesday - 7/21/2010, 3:03pm EDT

A free service from the company Research In Motion now offers data and device protection for users of Blackberrys. It's called Protect, and for now is invite-only, and through a limited beta version, though the company plans to offer a more general, open beta later this year. It allows users to lock down their devices, and locate lost devices on a map.

Reviewers with Information Week call it a credible option for smaller businesses and consumers.
