Research in Motion’ new Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) solution, BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10, is now available for download.
BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 re-invents RIM’s EMM by bringing together device management, industry leading security, and mobile applications management for BlackBerry smartphones, BlackBerry PlayBook tablets, and new BlackBerry 10 smartphones in a consolidated solution. It also provides a single console for managing BlackBerry, Android and iOS devices.
BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 builds on more than a decade of RIM’s enterprise mobility management expertise and the most widely deployed mobility solution in enterprises today. BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 offers mobile device management, mobile application management and secure mobile connectivity, and delivers a cost-efficient and reliable solution for business customers.
“BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 empowers employees to be more productive and better equipped to serve customers while it provides business and IT leaders with the confidence that corporate data is protected and manageable in the same way they have long enjoyed with BlackBerry,” says Peter Devenyi, senior VP, Enterprise Software, Research in Motion. “BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 makes mobility easy for businesses to help keep them moving.”
BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 gives organisations a highly scalable solution and the flexibility to manage their mobile deployment as needed. It supports both corporate-owned and personal-owned (BYOD – bring your own device) device deployments and mixed environments of BlackBerry and other devices, providing mobile device management, mobile application management, and secure access to corporate data.
It includes an intuitive, unified, Web-based administration console to manage devices and users. It also supports BlackBerry Balance technology, which elegantly separates and secures work applications and data from personal content on BlackBerry devices.
BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 is built on the same security and connectivity model for BlackBerry 10 smartphones that enterprise customers have always trusted and relied upon with BlackBerry Enterprise Server.
Key Features for BlackBerry 10 smartphones with BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10:
* Support for secure separation of work and personal applications and data on BlackBerry 10 smartphones through BlackBerry Balance technology.
* Support for seamless and secure access to work e-mail, content and secure connectivity to “behind the firewall” applications and data.
* BlackBerry World for Work, the new corporate app storefront for BlackBerry 10 smartphones that allows organisations to easily manage apps for employees. Administrators can push and install the organisation’s mandatory apps to both corporate and personal-owned devices and publish recommended apps to employees.
* Rich management controls for securing and managing work profiles including hierarchical group management with Active Directory integration, support for customisable administrative roles with granular capabilities, an intuitive enterprise enrolment process for employees that offers a self-service console, and centralised control of assignable profiles for e-mail, SCEP, WiFi, VPN and proxy servers.
“BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 brings some important technology, cost and operational improvements to existing BlackBerry customers,” says Nick McQuire, research director Mobile Enterprise Strategies EMEA for IDC.
“We believe RIM is poised to capitalise on its strong history in delivering reliable, scalable and secure mobile enterprise management solutions to help organisations address an increasingly diverse mobile environment.”
“Companies require maximum flexibility and diversity in mobile deployments,” says Jack Gold, principal analyst of J.Gold Associates, LLC. “Products that manage multiple platforms, while at the same time enabling the segregation of personal and corporate data, represent an optimum solution by offering the lowest total cost of ownership, most end-user friendly, and highest security approach to enterprise mobility.”
The BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 software as well as a limited sixty (60) day free trial (includes client access licenses) is available to be ordered.
