BlackBerry has announced the availability of a new security solution that separates work and personal apps and data on iOS and Android devices.
Secure Work Space for iOS and Android is a new option with BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 (version 10.1.1) that offers customers with a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) policy, a solution with the combination of security, user experience and total cost of ownership.
BlackBerry said it designed Secure Work Space to meet the management, security and cost needs of the CIO, and the user experience and functionality that employees demand.
Since launching in January 2013, 18,000 BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 servers have been installed by customers around the world and Secure Work Space for iOS and Android has been trialed globally with BlackBerry customers since the launch.
The Secure Work Space solution also enables customers to save considerable effort, administration and expense as they no longer need to configure and manage expensive VPN infrastructures to provide mobile device access to data and apps that reside behind their corporate firewalls. With end-to-end enterprise mobility management, easy deployment, and BlackBerry’s global technical support, BlackBerry says that it continues to offer innovative, secure and reliable solutions to enterprises and governments around the world.
The BlackBerry maker also said that it is working closely with app partners such as Box to power business collaboration in the cloud.
“Content sits at the center of every successful business and Box ensures that today’s mobile enterprise can securely access their information from any device, in any location and at any time,” said Whitney Bouck, Senior Vice President & GM, Enterprise at Box. “Box and BlackBerry are powering enterprise mobility for today’s knowledge workers.”
The BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 server software is free to download. Annual client access licenses (CALs) for Secure Work Space are USD$99 (MSRP) per year per device. BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 is also available as a sixty (60) day free trial bundle that includes 50 EMM Corporate CALs (providing device management for BlackBerry 10, iOS, and Android devices) and 50 Secure Work Space CALs.
