Secure business content on mobile devices with BlackBerry's Secure Work Space


New software from BlackBerry brings iOS and Android devices the same enterprise mobile management controls that are available on the company's current handsets.

A major BYOD concern is the separation of business and personal apps and data, and this capability was a key feature of BlackBerry 10 and BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10.

The company has now gone a step further by releasing software for iOS and Android devices that provides equivalent functionality, yet still under the control of BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10.

Secure Work Space for iOS and Android has been trialled by a number of BlackBerry customers, and is now generally available.

"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 executive vice president of enterprise mobile computing David Smith.

"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."

Secure Work Space incorporates email, calendar, contacts, secure browsing, and document viewing and editing. BlackBerry is working with a number of partners including Box to extend the range of functions.

Annual client access licenses for Secure Work Space cost $99 per year per device.

A free 60-day trial of BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 including 50 EMM Corporate client access licences and 50 Secure Work Space client access licences can be downloaded here.

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
