  • BBM Protected Now Available For Balance Enabled Devices



    BlackBerry has now started phase two of their BBM Protected roll out by bringing BBM Protected to Balance enabled devices. This step brings BBM Protected to BYOD, Balance, COPE (Corporate Owned, Personally Enabled)and COBO (Corporate Owned, Business Only) devices.

    Jeff Gadway writes over at the Inside BlackBerry Blog that the response to BBM Protected has been fantastic and that more and more customers in various businesses and regulated industries are expressing interest. Gadway writes, "This advanced encryption model has been designed to protect security conscious organizations from threats like spying, hacking, accidental data leakage, non-compliance and more. As the only secure IM client to use a FIPS 140-2 validated cryptographic module making it secure enough for government communications, we’re confident that BBM Protected lives up to the demanding needs of our most security conscious customers."
    Today we started phase 2 of the BBM Protected roll out, adding support for BlackBerry devices using Balance technology. This step allows BBM Protected to work in BYOD, Balance, and COPE (Corporate Owned, Personally Enabled) environments as well as COBO (Corporate Owned, Business Only).


    For security conscious organizations using Balance technology we’re excited to be able to offer enhanced BBM Protected level encryption to the intra-company BBM messages being sent between employees inside the company as well as inter-company BBM messages being sent to employees at other companies using BBM Protected.


    Just as before, enabling BBM Protected for Balance enabled devices is as simple as turning on an IT policy through the BES console. And for end users, the experience remains as simple and hassle free too – keep using BBM as you do today! End users will continue to use the same BBM app they currently have and BBM messages to other BBM Protected users (either at their company or at other companies using BBM Protected) are encrypted automatically using the advanced BBM Protected encryption. Messages sent to friends and family use the standard BBM encryption.
    BlackBerry also offers up a video on just how BBM Protected works:
