Research In Motion’s (RIM) new Multi Platform Enterprise Mobility Management Solution, BlackBerry Enterprise Server 10 (BES10), is now available for download, ahead of the launch of the BlackBerry 10 smartphone and operating system in South Africa.
BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 brings together device management, security (FIPS 140-2 certified) and mobile applications management for BB10 smartphones, Android devices and iOS devices.
According to the Canadian mobile phone manufacturer, BES10 “Makes Mobility Easy for Businesses”.
Peter Devenyi, Senior Vice President, Enterprise Software, RIM, said: “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.
“BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 makes mobility easy for businesses to help keep them moving.”
Features of the BB10 smartphones with BES10 include support for secure separation of work and personal applications and BlackBerry App World for Work, which allows administrators to push and install the organisation’s mandatory apps to both corporate and personal-owned devices and publish recommended apps to employees.
Nick McQuire, Research Director Mobile Enterprise Strategies EMEA at the International Data Corporation, said: “BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 brings some important technology, cost and operational improvements to existing BlackBerry customers.
“We believe RIM is poised to capitalize on its strong history in delivering reliable, scalable and secure mobile enterprise management solutions to help organisations address an increasingly diverse mobile environment.”
