BlackBerry Launches Secure Work Space for Android And iOS Platforms


After mentioning it several times, the company has finally launched the new service. Managed through BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 (BES), Secure Work Space allows users to separate corporate applications such as e-mail, calendar, contacts and tasks separate from personal apps. BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 is a new back-end system launched by the company in January. It allows BlackBerry's clients (enterprises) to control mobile devices on their internal networks.

Secure Work Space will establish a encrypted connection to the BES server, for ensuring that all communication that originate from the mobile devices are secure. Email, Calendar and Contact information is synchronized with enterprise mail servers using Exchange ActiveSync via BlackBerry Secure Connectivity. The enterprise's IT admin will be able to remotely manipulate or wipe Secure Work Space elements on the device without effecting personal data.

"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, told 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." He added.

BlackBerry has reportedly installed around 18,000 BES 10 servers since it was launched in January. Now that the Secure Work Space service has been extended to Android and iOS platforms, it should help the company in getting some revenues in.
