BlackBerry Says It Can ‘Secure’ iOS and Android in the Enterprise

BlackBerry is bragging about the availability of a new security solution that separates work and personal apps and data on iOS and Android devices.

Meet “Secure Work Space for iOS and Android,” which is a new option with BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 that offers customers with a BYOD policy a solution with “the best combination of security, user experience and total cost of ownership.”

BlackBerry designed Secure Work Space to meet the management, security and cost needs of the CIO, and the user experience and functionality that employees demand.

Based on sources quoted in the official launch announcement from BlackBerry, it looks like plenty of companies are eager to give the solution a go.

All told, there’s a big market out there for BlackBerry to conquer. According to Forrester Research, Inc., in 2016, 350 million employees will use smartphones and 200 million will bring their own devices to the workplace

“Secure Work Space builds on BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10, and we found that BlackBerry’s secure infrastructure offered our company the best containerization solution to help mobilize our multi-platform environment, while maintaining a great user experience,” explains Thierry Lammers, Director and co-founder of e-office mobile.

“We’re looking forward to deploying this solution across our organization and to our customers in the coming months and bringing the separation of work and personal data to life on iOS and Android devices,” he says.
