BlackBerry Device Management
The wait is over, next generation BlackBerry 10 smartphones are available and giving some organizations reason to rethink their mobile strategy.
What's new? Among adding several new features and having access to tens of thousands of mobile apps, new BlackBerry 10 smartphones use ActiveSync technology to access corporate email and PIM. What does this mean for IT? Administrators will be able to connect these BlackBerry 10 smartphones directly to Microsoft Exchange corporate servers using Microsoft's ActiveSync technology, eliminating the need for a BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES). This is great news for organizations needing a singular solution to manage their BlackBerry 10 devices alongside iOS and Android.
But what about those legacy BlackBerry devices running RIM OS 4.5 – 7.1?
Notify Technology empowers organizations with a two-pronged approach to BlackBerry device management. NotifySync provides direct synchronization of any email platform supporting ActiveSync for legacy BlackBerry devices. That's right, no BES required. NotifySync creates a new email experience for the BlackBerry while utilizing the BlackBerry's native calendar, address book, and tasks applications while also making the devices manageable using NotifyMDM, Notify's mobile device management and security solution. NotifyMDM provides IT administrators a single console to manage corporate and individual liable (BYOD) devices regardless of operating system, carrier, or email platform. Whether on-premise or in the cloud, NotifyMDM provides support for next-generation BlackBerry 10 smartphones alongside iOS and Android as well as support legacy BlackBerry devices utilizing NotifySync.
