After an earlier unsuccessful attempt to curb down BlackBerry usage in UAE, the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) has now asked Etisalat and du, to restrict BlackBerry Enterprise Services (BES) to “qualifying organisations” and private individuals.
Qualifying organisations must have a valid UAE trade licence, and a minimum of 20 or more Enterprise accounts under the company ownership,
However, the move could lead to added costs for local firms wanting to use the more secure service.
Etisalat has already begun communicating with its corporate customers about the change.
