RIM launches BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10

In preparation of the upcoming launch of BlackBerry 10 in a little over a week, RIM has launched BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10. This service is aimed at businesses and government agencies, and makes it easy to manage devices across multiple platforms as well as a mobile apps. Along with the announcement, RIM released a quick preview video of the service, which you can check out after the jump.

BES 10 offers several features for BlackBerry 10 handsets, including the separation of personal and work data and apps, as well as secure access to firewall-protected work data. For app management, BES 10 offers BlackBerry World for Work, a new corporate-centered app store for BB 10 smartphones. Admins are given the ability to push out apps to both BB 10 handsets and smartphones running iOS and Android.

The video above shows part of the those features, specifically the process of adding a handset. It’s fairly straight forward and simple, with the admin logging in and selecting a user from a list. Once selected, a device can then be chosen and added by entering an activation password. Admins have extensive control over work profiles via Active Directory integration.

RIM’s Enterprise Software Senior Vice President Peter Devenyi offered this statement. “BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 empowers employees to be more productive and better equipped to serve customers while it provides business and IT leaders with the confidence that corporate data is protected and manageable in the same way they have long enjoyed with BlackBerry.”
