BlackBerry Announces Secure Work Space for iOS and Android Devices
Apple and Android devices will soon get their own version of BlackBerry Balance with BlackBerry's newly introduced Secure Work Space. Finely integrated within BES 10, IT admins will be able to securely partition corporate data from personal data using IT policies.
The separation of work data and personal data has been a problem introduced by the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend. With BlackBerry Secure Work Space iOS and Android device data can be properly separated and secured. This will alleviate some of the headaches that IT admins have to go through when trying to manage corporate data.
BlackBerry issued the following statement:
We recently announced that we will be offering Secure Work Space for iOS and Android to our enterprise customers. Secure Work Space will separate corporate data from personal data on iOS and Android devices in order to protect corporations, and to ensure personal privacy of employees. Secure Work Space will be managed through BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 and will secure data at rest and in transit. We plan to offer a Beta program to our enterprise customers in the very near future. We will share details on availability soon.
