Research In Motion (RIM) on Sunday confirmed that access to BlackBerry's encrypted email service would be restricted in UAE. According to proposed guidelines only the organizations with 20 or more subscription of BlackBerry Enterprise Server will be allowed access to BlackBerry's encrypted email services.

RIM is reportedly negotiating with India over government access to its enterprise servers. India claims that lack of government access to encrypted Blackberry services is a threat to national security. In the past RIM had said that each enterprise maintained its own encryption keys for its account with BlackBerry. Its officials claimed that providing this key to government was not possible for RIM.
