BlackBerry Secures iOS and Android in the Enterprise Without Sacrificing the User Experience

BlackBerry Secures iOS and Android in the Enterprise Without Sacrificing the 
User Experience 
Secure Work Space separates work and personal apps and data on iOS
and Android devices 
WATERLOO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 06/25/13 -- BlackBerry(R)
(NASDAQ:BBRY)(TSX:BB) today announced the availability of a new
security solution that separates work and personal apps and data on
iOS(R) and Android(TM) devices. Secure Work Space for iOS and Android
is a new option with BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 (version
10.1.1) that offers customers with a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device)
policy, a solution with the best combination of security, user
experience and total cost of ownership. BlackBerry designed Secure
Work Space to meet the management, security and cost needs of the
CIO, and the user experience and functionality that employees demand. 
Since launching in January 2013, 18,000 BlackBerry(R) Enterprise
Service 10 servers have been installed by customers around the world
and Secure Work Space for iOS and Android has been trialed globally
with BlackBerry customers since the launch, including
Netherlands-based e-office mobile b.v. For the past 22 years e-office
has been creating virtual working environments for their clients, and
to ensure they are always staying current on their clients' mobility
needs, e-office took part in BlackBerry's early adopter program for
Secure Work Space. 
"Secure Work Space builds on BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10, and we
found that BlackBerry's secure infrastructure offered our company the
best containerization solution to help mobilize our multi-platform
environment, while maintaining a great user experience," said Thierry
Lammers, Director and co-founder, e-office mobile. "We're looking
forward to deploying this solution across our organization and to our
customers in the coming months and bringing the separation of work
and personal data to life on iOS and Android devices." 
According to Forrester Research, Inc., in 2016, 350 million employees
will use smartphones and 200 million will bring their own devices to
the workplace(1). Secure Work Space offers an ideal BYOD mobile
security solution, providing organizations the flexibility to embrace
BYOD without sacrificing security. On a personal iOS or Android
device, users with Secure Work Space get integrated email (with
attachment viewing), calendar and contacts for productivity, as well
as secure browser access to intranets and document editing
capabilities with BlackBerry's Documents To Go(TM). With corporate
data separated and controlled within the Secure Work Space container,
these standard apps can be deployed with confidence to any user,
together with other apps chosen by the company. 
BlackBerry is working closely with app partners such as Box to power
business collaboration in the cloud.  
"Content sits at the center of every successful business and Box
ensures that today's mobile enterprise can securely access their
information from any device, in any location and at any time," said
Whitney Bouck, Senior Vice President & GM, Enterprise at Box. "Box
and BlackBerry are powering enterprise mobility for today's knowledge
workers."  
BlackBerry provides security at the device, server and network level.
Secure Work Space leverages the same trusted behind-the-firewall
connection available for BlackBerry smartphones and extends
BlackBerry security capabilities for data-at-rest and data-in-transit
to iOS and Android devices. The Secure Work Space container is
managed through BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10, making it easy and
convenient to manage all devices from its single console.  
"Mobility is fundamentally transforming how we live and work. As our
dependency on mobile solutions grows, and as a greater variety of
mobile devices enter the workplace, the need for solutions to manage
and secure these devices has never been greater," said David J.
Smith, EVP, Enterprise Mobile Computing at BlackBerry. "In today's
'bring your own device world', Secure Work Space is a differentiated
solution that brings key elements of the BlackBerry security platform
and mobile device management to iOS and Android devices."  
The Secure Work Space solution also enables customers to save
considerable effort, administration and expense as they no longer
need to configure and manage expensive VPN infrastructures to provide
mobile device access to data and apps that reside behind their
corporate firewalls. With end-to-end enterprise mobility management,
easy deployment, and BlackBerry's global technical support,
BlackBerry continues to offer innovative, secure and reliable
solutions to enterprises and governments around the world.
