Corporations and governments can now maintain a workforce of Android or iOS devices while behind the security of BES 10. Secure Work Space has launched for BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10.
“With an integrated management console, our clients can now see all of the devices they have on their network, manage those devices and connect to them securely,” David Smith, the head of enterprise mobile computing at BlackBerry, said in an interview with Reuters.
“We now also have a secure work space on Android and iOS that allows our clients to secure and manage the data on those devices as well.”
Since launching BES 10 in January, BlackBerry has installed over 18,000 servers, and more than 60 percent of U.S. Fortune 500 companies are testing or using the system.
The Secure Work Space allows CIOs to secure corporate email, calendars, contacts, tasks, memos, Web browsing and document editing from personal apps and content, which could be less secure.
