BlackBerry offers secure workspace for third party platforms

BlackBerry has confirmed its commitment to bringing a solution that will separate and secure work and personal data on mobile devices to third party platforms.

By CBR Staff Writer

The new solution, dubbed Secure Work Space for iOS and Android, will be managed through BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 and is expected to be available by second quarter of this year.

The solution for third-party platforms will feature secured client applications for e-mail, calendar, contacts, tasks, memos, secure browsing, and document editing.

BlackBerry said the new offering will enable clients to save significant work and expense as they do not need to configure and manage expensive virtual private network (VPN) infrastructures, which give mobile devices access to data as well as applications that reside behind corporate firewalls.

BlackBerry EVP of enterprise mobile computing David Smith said with the new solution, the company is trying to provide as many of these balance features as possible to other platforms.

"BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 offers administrators a single, intuitive platform enabling them to effectively and securely manage a variety of devices while protecting their corporate assets and at the same time providing employees the flexibility they desire," Smith said.

Earlier this week, the company, which changed its name from Research in Motion to BlackBerry, received an order for 1 million BlackBerry 10 smartphones.
