If you can't beat 'em, join 'em - that's the message from the BlackBerry Live conference in Orlando, Florida this week. The company has announced BlackBerry Enterprise Service (BES) 10.1 to extend security capabilities for iOS devices.
BES 10.1, which is now available for download, lets users manage BlackBerry smartphones as well as iOS and Android devices. But a previously announced feature, now in testing, will extend iOS support even more. "Secure Work Space" is a new function of BES 10.1 that provides a secure corporate connection for iOS and Android devices, without requiring any specific configuration changes to the device. Secure Work Space works using apps that BlackBerry plans to release through the App Store which includes secure e-mail, calendar, contacts, tasks, memos, browsing and document editing.
BlackBerry is currently testing Secure Work Space in closed beta and plans to release the feature.
