BlackBerry launches Secure Work Space for iOS and Android

Written by James Delahunty (Google+) @ 25 Jun 2013 5:03

BlackBerry launches Secure Work Space for iOS and Android BlackBerry has launched its promised Secure Work Space service, allowing governmental and corporate clients to secure and manage iOS and Android devices on their networks.
Secure Work Space is a new containerization, application-wrapping and secure connectivity option that delivers a higher level of control and security to iOS and Android devices, all managed through the single BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 administration console.

Managed applications are secured and separated from personal apps and data, providing an integrated email, calendar and contacts app, an enterprise-level secure browser and secure attachment viewing and editing with Documents To Go.

While BlackBerry has attempted to step up competition against iOS and Android devices by releasing the Z10, Q10 and Q5 running BB10, it also shifted toward providing services for clients that have large amounts of rival's handsets already in place.

"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, said in an interview.

"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."
