Last November, Research In Motion announced its move into the multi-platform Mobile Device Management marketplace. BlackBerry Mobile Fusion was designed to help organisations manage a combination of smartphones and tablets running BlackBerry, Android and Apple iOS operating systems.
The service was launched as a closed beta and this week has been made available to all RIM enterprise customers.
Alan Panezic, Vice President of Enterprise Product Management and Marketing at Research In Motion, said “For businesses and government, managing a mix of mobile devices on any scale is chaotic. Organizations face pressure to allow employees to bring their own devices into the workplace, and they are looking to RIM as the global leader in the enterprise mobility space to solve that problem. BlackBerry Mobile Fusion allows organizations to manage a mixed environment of devices in the most secure, simple, and cost efficient manner possible. It also means that businesses and government do not have to move to the lowest common denominator on security for all the devices they need to manage.”
BlackBerry Mobile Fusion software is priced according to the number of devices being managed.
