BlackBerry Secure Work Space Now on iOS and Android

BlackBerry continues its new focus on services, as it has announced the launch of Secure Work Space, their new solution built on its BlackBerry Enterprise Service. Secure Work Space is compatible with Apple’s iPad and iPhone, as well as Android devices.

 

AppleInsider:

The company announced the development on Tuesday, noting that the move will allow BlackBerry to ensure that clients can fully manage all of the devices they support, even if they aren’t necessarily BlackBerry devices.

“Mobility is fundamentally transforming how we live and work. As our dependency on mobile solutions grows, and as a greater variety of mobile devices enter the workplace, the need for solutions to manage and secure these devices has never been greater,” said David J. Smith, EVP, Enterprise Mobile Computing at BlackBerry.

Secure Work Space, first announced in March of this year, gives users of iOS and Android devices the ability to access data and applications behind corporate firewalls without needing to manage and configure a VPN connection. BES 10 for third-party platforms will also include secure applications for e-mail, calendar, contacts, tasks, memos, browsing, and document editing.

BlackBerry is also looking to put its well-known messaging service onto other platforms. In May the company announced that BlackBerry Messenger would be coming to iOS 6.0 devices and Android 4.0. The service has yet to launch on either platform.
