Research In Motion today announced the general availability of BlackBerry Protect in beta for all interested users. BlackBerry Protect lets BlackBerry users manage the security of their smartphone. Some of the application's features include: remote wipe, lock, lost screen and ringer activation; cell tower and GPS tracking; and back-up and restore of contacts, text messages, bookmarks, and calendar items. BlackBerry Protect is tied to users BlackBerry ID, and offers a web-based control panel for accessing and enabling these features on a lost device. The software had previously only been available to Beta Zone testers. Starting today, it is available to all BlackBerry users in North and Latin America.
