BES 10 now available for everyone who manages iOS and BlackBerry in Enterprise

BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 is now available for download, and in recognition of the BYOD -- bring your own device -- trend spearheaded by iPhones and iPads, BES 10 will let you manage Apple devices as well.

BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 gives organizations a highly scalable solution and the flexibility to manage their mobile deployment as needed. It supports both corporate-owned and personal-owned (BYOD - Bring Your Own Device) device deployments and mixed environments of BlackBerry and other devices, providing mobile device management, mobile application management, and secure access to corporate data. It includes an intuitive, unified, web-based administration console to manage devices and users. It also supports BlackBerry Balance technology, which elegantly separates and secures work applications and data from personal content on BlackBerry devices. BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 is built on the same security and connectivity model for BlackBerry 10 smartphones that enterprise customers have always trusted and relied upon with BlackBerry Enterprise Server.

There's a free 60 day trial available. Of course, enterprises aren't usually quick to update their server software, so it's hard to say how long it will take for BES 10 to gain significant penetration and traction, but if you're company is deploying it, let me know how it goes, how it works, and how you like it.

Meanwhile head on over to for everything you need to know about BlackBerry 10.

There's some preparation hoops to jump through before you can deploy/upgrade BES10 but we are hoping to have it up and running in the next week or two. We have a comprehensive MDM solution already (for iOS and Android devices) so it will be interesting to see the policy/feature overlap between the two solutions.

One nice bonus is that they will be sending us a BB10 device as well to test with. Yay!
