BES for BB10 released

Research in Motion has released its new Enterprise Service 10, a business solution that integrates device and application management, as well as security, for smartphones and tablets – including Android and iOS devices.

Just days before the launch of the first BlackBerry 10 phones, Research In Motion has announced that its new Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) solution, BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10, is available for download.

RIM says BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 re-invents its 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,”” according to a company statement. “”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.””

Peter Devenyi, Senior Vice President, Enterprise Software, Research In Motion, added: ‚””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.‚””

Key features of BES 10

According to RIM, BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 gives organizations 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

BES 10 includes the following features aimed at the new BlackBerry 10 phones due from launch on 30 January:

• Support for secure separation of work and personal applications and data on BlackBerry 10 smartphones through BlackBerry Balance technology.

‚Ä¢ Support for seamless and secure access to work email, content and secure connectivity to ‚””behind the firewall‚”” applications and data.

‚Ä¢ BlackBerry World for Work, the new corporate app storefront for BlackBerry 10 smartphones that allows organizations to easily manage apps for employees. Administrators can push and install the organization’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 customizable administrative roles with granular capabilities, an intuitive enterprise enrollment process for employees that offers a self-service console, and centralized control of assignable profiles for email, SCEP, Wi-Fi, VPN and proxy servers.
