Earlier today at the BlackBerry Security Summit 2014, BlackBerry announced further integration of BlackBerry Guardian. Current users will have seen the BlackBerry Guardian feature embedded within BlackBerry World. However, BlackBerry looks to allow the Trend Micro service capabilities throughout the BlackBerry 10 operating system.

In some current BlackBerry OS 10.3 betas, the BlackBerry Guardian service is already available with deep integration. I’ve got such a 10.3 loaded on my Z3 (which I accidentally called a Z30. Sorry, it was 4am when I recorded the video) and have gone hands-on with the BlackBerry Guardian service.
