And it just keeps coming…RIM today announced that its new Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) solution, BlackBerry® Enterprise Service 10, is now available for download.
BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 is a combination of many services that IT administrators are desperately trying to get their hands on. These include: device management, industry leading security, and mobile applications management for BlackBerry® smartphones, BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablets, and new BlackBerry 10 smartphones in a consolidated solution.
What is also smart is that RIM knows that not everyone in the business will have a Blackberry phone so it has also added the ability to manage Android™ and iOS® devices from its console.
As we know RIM has always been strong in the corporate environment and with many years under its belt servicing this market, it has developed a strong platform to manage the BYOD trend and make life much more bearable for IT people – especially in corporates where security and integrity of data is important.
