BlackBerry Secure Work Space for iOS and Android

BlackBerry Secure Work Space for iOS and Android is now Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 certified. FIPS 140-2 is issued by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to coordinate the requirements and standards for certifying cryptographic modules. It mean, the BlackBerry can now sell its Secure Work Space services to government and corporate clients even if their employees are using smartphones made by the company’s competitors. Secure Work Space is a containerization, application-wrapping and secure connectivity option that delivers a higher level of control and security to iOS and Android devices, all managed through the BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 administration console.

• Secured apps for email, calendar and contacts (PIM), web browsing and document viewing and editing (Documents to Go) come as standard
• Data in secured apps is encrypted and separated from personal data and apps. Users cannot copy or paste corporate data into personal apps
• Ability to deploy and manage additional securely wrapped apps within the Secure Work Space
• iOS and Android devices can be deployed in true BYOD mode, where management is confined to the Secure Work Space container only
• Full device MDM control can be activated if required and managed through the BES10 console

• Provides access to behind-the-firewall application servers for apps deployed to the Secure Work Space
