RIM has come clean with details on how it intends to manage both BlackBerry, and other smart phone platforms in one tool. The BlackBerry Enterprise solution aims to make it easy for businesses to secure mobile devices.
One of the key benefits to this new platform is Android and iOS devices can now be securely managed from one single Web console, along with BlackBerry devices.
The Internet-based console provides the ability for IT managers to push out software, manage policies, track inventory and manage security for both BlackBerry and other platforms.
Other tools included with the enterprise software are the ability to remotely lock or unlock devices, and activating phones or tablets.
Some features will remain unique to BlackBerry phones, like the push email solution, and the efficient data use that is regulated by BlackBerry servers.
