Govt. Agrees To RIM’s Cloud Based Monitoring For BlackBerry
By on December 21st, 2010

After months of persuasion and talks between esteemed officials of the Indian Govt. and the BlackBerry makers, RIM – the Govt. is now satisfied with the solution which RIM has proposed to monitor BlackBerry services by the Govt. However, RIM is still not setting up a server in India, instead they are offering a cloud based solution. But this cloud based monitoring solution is only for BlackBerry messenger, and RIM has not yet told anything about monitoring the corporate e-mail services.

As per the current agreement reached between RIM and the Govt., RIM’s infrastructure is all set to ready to receive and process lawfully intercepted BlackBerry messenger data via the cloud computing-based system, from Indian service providers. However the system is not yet real-time. This solution comes well within the deadline time of December 2010, which was set by the Indian Govt.

RIM has already allowed the security agencies to monitor voice calls, SMS, chat conversation but the Govt. wanted same access to the corporate BlackBerry Messenger and BlackBerry e-mails. Earlier, Nokia had setup a server in India to let the Govt. agencies monitor data generated from Nokia devices. Not only this, a Rajasthan based company has already launched BharatBerryto counter BlackBerry services in India.
