RIM has released its enterprise mobile device management software BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10, delivering a single console to manage BlackBerry, Android, and iOS devices.
BlackBerry Enterprise Service (BES) 10 is a consolidation of RIM's enterprise and device management services. It provides a single area to manage corporate communication, data, and devices in one place, taking the place of BES, ActiveSync, and Mobile Fusion. In addition to supporting BlackBerry devices - including BlackBerry 7, BlackBerry 10, and BlackBerry Playbooks - it supports the iPhone, iPad, and Android smartphones or tablets.
BES 10 features BlackBerry Balance, a tool RIM touts as being an ideal solution to separate Work and Personal spaces within BB10 devices that splits apps, settings, and data privileges. Other features of the new enterprise service include
- BYOD management for multiple platforms
- Secure email and connections to company data
- BlackBerry World app store specifically for work that lets management push installations for required apps and recommend apps for personal use
- Custom administrative privileges and controls for email, SCEP, Wi-Fi, VPN, and proxy servers
BES 10 is available for download now and comes with a free 60-day trial. More information is available at RIM's website.source: RIM
