Research In Motion, BlackBerry’s parent company, is expecting the new blackberry mobile device management in the BlackBerry 10 (January 2013 release) to be ideal for BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) environments. BYOD allows users to access privileged information at the office such as email, reports, financials statements and much, much more. The bes policy system also makes the device and network secure by requiring passwords and changing passwords periodically.
The BlackBerry 10 will run the QNX operating system. This new blackberry mobile device management software is expected to feature an ideal operating system for BYOD. The new OS is considered more secure and designed to function ideally in a BYOD workplace. The bes security policy is a proactive policy that uses a password protect on the BlackBerry 10, which allows users to lock their device and also has a function that will allow them to remotely lock the BlackBerry 10. Another security feature of the new blackberry mobile device management allows users to remotely wipe any classified information should they lose or misplace their device. This new bes security policy is designed to thrive in a BYOD environment.
Most BlackBerry users access the internet more than the average smartphone users. Only 63 percent of other smartphone customers access the internet each day whereas BlackBerry users access the internet around 87 percent . This is another reason the new blackberry mobile device management system is more secure than other operating systems. In reality, BlackBerry users need more from the new blackberry mobile device management software because of they expose themselves to security issues and risks much more often.
Research in Motion, BlackBerry’s parent company, hopes that by designing a more secure and safe blackberry mobile device management it can return to smartphone prominence by riding the BlackBerry 10 and the BYOD trend all the way to the top of the smartphone pyramid yet again.
