BlackBerry App World Chapter 5.   Security and Selling Your Game


Security is one of BlackBerry's biggest selling points. Corporations can use BlackBerry Enterprise Solutions to keep their confidential business data safe even when it's on smartphones that employees are carrying out of the office. But even if you're in the business of fun (instead of the business of business), the BlackBerry security model can help you when you're selling your game.

A platform's security model works in two directions: it protects customers from malicious applications that may harm their device or data, and it can also protect the application developer's intellectual property that is, it can help ensure that users pay for the applications they use. Both directions are useful when selling your game since a user is more willing to download and install an application if he knows it can't harm his device or data.
