If you’re an IT administrator using BlackBerry you might be interested in the latest update of the IT Manager app. During BlackBerry Live we interviewed Paul Dumais who gave us a demo of the app which has support for BES administration from a BlackBerry 10 device. He also gave us a preview of SSH, Telnet and VNC connections that were coming soon at the time. The version of IT Manager has been released and is now available in BlackBerry World.
The added SSH and Telnet features now allow administrators to manage Unix servers, routers or switches. IT Manager is also the first BlackBerry 10 SSH client (that we’re aware of) to support BES/MDS connections to servers behind a firewall. With the new VNC and ARD remote desktop feature, admins can now also connect to Windows or Mac computers, see the screen and control the mouse and keyboard remotely.
The IT Manager team also let us know that their next release coming later this month will add support for managing VMware servers as well as RDP connections to Windows. IT Manager is an excellent enterprise app that costs $99/year and can be downloaded from BlackBerry World:
