 Screen Shot 2012 08 23 at 4.23.44 PM 550x186 BES, BlackBerry 10, BlackBerry 7, and Mobile Fusion: What You Need to Know

This week has been quite confusing with news of BlackBerry Enterprise Server, BlackBerry 10, BlackBerry 7, and Mobile Fusion. It started earlier this week with BGR posting an “exclusive” story detailing how BlackBerry 10 would essentially destroy the existing BES structure and be a huge headache for enterprise IT managers. CrackBerry, and even RIM, countered the BGR story with some posts of their own, and now we’re bringing all the news together so you can understand what is coming with the BES transition and BlackBerry 10. Follow me past the break for the full explanation.

BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 and BlackBerry Device Service Now FIPS 140-2 Certified

posted by Justin Lisenby at on Jul 28, 2012 | Leave a comment

P1020224 550x412 BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 and BlackBerry Device Service Now FIPS 140 2 Certified

RIM has announced a new certification that has been achieved by both BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 and BlackBerry Device Service. Both pieces of software are now FIPS 140-2 Certified, meaning they are certified as the most secure mobile services available. Everyone knows what BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 is; however, most won’t be familiar with BlackBerry Device Service. This is the portion of BlackBerry Mobile Fusion that manages BlackBerry Devices on the server. It’s basically the BES portion of Mobile Fusion.

Having this certification is huge for RIM, especially since they are counting on the PlayBook, BlackBerry 10, and BlackBerry Device Service to enable them to continue support for government and enterprise customers who require top-level security. This is also a good sign for BlackBerry 10’s security future. It has been widely quoted that since BlackBerry 10 devices could be rooted and jailbroken, they would not achieve the required security standards for government use. Seeing PlayBook OS 2.0 certified, this gives BlackBerry 10 a good chance. Check out the link below for more information on these FIPS Certifications.

BlackBerry 10 Devices Will Reportedly Not Be Compatible with 3rd Party Device Management Services

posted by Justin Lisenby at on Jul 27, 2012 | Leave a comment

BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha device 283x550 BlackBerry 10 Devices Will Reportedly Not Be Compatible with 3rd Party Device Management Services

This latest bit of information about BlackBerry 10 comes as a bit of a shock and a definite negative for the Enterprise market. Sources close to RIM are reporting that BlackBerry 10 devices will not be allowed to run on any 3rd party Mobile Device Management (MDM) Software. What does this mean? It means that even when BlackBerry 10 launches, the mass exodus of enterprise and business users may continue.

RIM has built out their own MDM system, BlackBerry Mobile Fusion. The current setup for BlackBerry 10 only allows those devices to be managed by RIM’s own servers. This means that unless a company decides to manage their entire device portfolio with Mobile Fusion, they can’t have any BlackBerry 10 Devices on their system. This is just a rumor at the moment; however, it’s being confirmed by sources close to RIM. If this turns out to be true, RIM’s main market, Enterprise, may not even adopt BlackBerry 10. So here’s to hoping RIM changes their mind on this before the launch of BlackBerry 10.

There hasn’t been a lot of fanfare around the launch of BlackBerry Mobile Fusion. We heard about it a few times and RIM announced its launch the same time they launched BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0. We know that currently it is an extension of BES, it manages BlackBerry Smartphones and PlayBooks on the corporate network. Later this year, support for iOS and Android devices is also slated to launch with BlackBerry Mobile Fusion. Take a look at the video above to check out some of the current features and uses of Mobile Fusion for BlackBerry Smartphones and Tablets.

RIM confirms that hired iOS Developers are for BlackBerry Mobile Fusion

posted by Justin Lisenby at on Mar 23, 2012 | Leave a comment

Screen Shot 2012 03 23 at 9.10.32 AM RIM confirms that hired iOS Developers are for BlackBerry Mobile Fusion

Yesterday we told you about RIM’s job posting for iOS developers. We, along with many others, speculated that it could be for the hotly-anticipated and oft-rumored, cross-platform version of BBM. However, we also told you that the posting was most likely for developers to work on the iOS client for BlackBerry Mobile Fusion. That second option has turned out to be the case, according to a report from AllThingsD. An unspecified RIM employee has been quoted saying:

“In order for BlackBerry Mobile Fusion to perform advanced management functions for iOS devices, RIM will develop an on device client to be included as part of the overall solution”

So there you have it, folks. Cross-platform BBM still looks like nothing but a pipe dream. RIM is putting a lot of effort into BlackBerry Mobile Fusion and the hiring of iOS developers is just another step in that development process.

RIM has officially rolled out their new multi-platform device management service, BlackBerry Mobile Fusion. We heard about Mobile Fusion last year and we knew it would be a pretty great step for RIM to take. What is BlackBerry Mobile Fusion, you ask?

RIM has just announced a new service coming in 2012 that is being called BlackBerry Mobile Fusion.

This system will bring together support for BlackBerry, iOS, and Android devices and allow the enterprise device administrators to manage all those devices in one system. This will allow a company and its employees to use BlackBerrys, iPhones, and Droids all in unison on a single server, saving the company money on new devices and separate servers. You can read the full press release with all the information on BlackBerry Mobil Fusion after the jump.
