As part of their recently announced updates to their enterprise portfolio, BlackBerry will be hosting a webinar on Thursday, June 16, 2016, to offer details from experts and product managers on all the new solutions from BlackBerry. In total, BlackBerry has announced seven significant updates to the portfolio, which are outlined.
WatchDox by BlackBerry, our highly-secure file management platform, enables effortless document synchronization and sharing over multiple operating systems. This month, we're adding a number of improvements, including Salesforce integration, in-browser document editing, and many other features to improve productivity, collaboration, administration, and development.
We are also releasing WatchDox by BlackBerry Email Protector as a standalone product, allowing your enterprise to automatically embed security and DRM controls into some or all files sent through your email gateway that endures even after they leave the firewall. And when you deploy it alongside an email Data Loss Protection (DLP) system for advanced security screening, Email Protector will enforce granular, custom DRM corresponding to existing risk profiles.
Our core EMM platform, BES12, allows secure management of mobile devices and endpoints across multiple operating systems and ownership models – all from a single console. Our v12.5 updates to BES12 On-Premises further simplify administration and deployment of Good Dynamics apps, introduce new compliance rules, and enhance support for Samsung KNOX, including support for IBM Verse e-mail hosting. For BES12 Cloud, we've also recently added several features designed to enhance both security and management of mobile devices, including BlackBerry Secure Connect Plus support for seamless enterprise connectivity, MDM support for OS X and app management for Windows 10.
In addition to our enhancements to BES12, we've made a number of improvements to our Good Dynamics mobile app management platform, introducing more Good features to Windows 10 and Mac OS X users, and enhanced support for multiple development languages such as Swift, Xamarin and PhoneGap.
We're also adding the mobile app for the AtHoc Crisis Communications platform into Good Dynamics, while also upgrading the overall platform with features such as real-time alert rules, automated staff mustering, management alerting, and more.
We'll soon offer two new services geared towards reducing your company's spending on cellular data on employee-owned devices. BlackBerry WorkLife – Advanced Analytics allows you to easily monitor data usage of any Good, third-party, or custom business apps built with Good Dynamics. WorkLife – Reimbursement, meanwhile, will allow your organization to establish a clear separation between personal and corporate data costs, helping you facilitate reimbursing your employees for the use of approved business apps on iOS and Android devices.
An efficient and secure messaging system, BBM Protected automatically encrypts all data, both end-to-end and in-transit for BBM messages sent between iOS, Android, and BlackBerry devices. New additions to BBM Protected include video communication protection, and the ability to securely forward messages.
Mobile Zero Sign-On (ZSO) for Samsung KNOX, Android for Work, and BlackBerry 10 devices for quick and secure access. In addition, integration with Strong Authentication by BlackBerry protects cloud services with two-factor security.
The webinar will kick off at 11:00 AM EDT and those interested in attending can register for the event via the meeting registration page. Once registered, you will be sent the link to attend and can set up reminders so you're sure to not miss it.
