Le système de gestion de parc de terminaux (MDM) BlackBerry, Android et iOS BlackBerry Mobile Fusion est désormais disponible et veut répondre à la tendance du BYOD en entreprise.
In November 2011, Research in Motion (RIM) announced a new MDM solution (Mobile Device Management) allowing for the remote management of a fleet of mobile devices. Nicknamed BlackBerry Mobile Fusion (deployable with BES infrastructure or BlackBerry Enterprise Server), it stood out thanks to its compatibility with BlackBerry OS (and PlayBook OS), Android and iOS which allowed it to meet the BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) tendency which is currently being seen in businesses.
It helps manage security issues across a range of various mobile devices which have been selected by employees to meet their needs rather than the business which would impose a single handset type.
Taking into consideration this change in mentality (which hasn’t helped their own mobile device sales), RIM is offering a solution which provides the greatest number of possibilities for the management of BlackBerry smartphones, while still allowing for the management of Android and iOS devices.
Managing different kinds of mobile devices It will be possible to authenticate multiple devices with a single user ID (smartphone, tablet), impose connectivity rules (Wi-Fi, VPN, certificates...), administer all devices from a centralised web console, define a range of security rules and even remotely block or delete data from lost or stolen devices.
In Beta phase testing since it was unveiled in November 2011, BlackBerry Mobile Fusion is now available for all enterprises with it being accessible via a system license which takes into account the number of devices being managed and the number of users.
RIM has made it possible to freely deploy a pilot for 90 days, without any license purchase. The manufacturer also indicates that BlackBerry Mobile Fusion will be compatible with the future BlackBerry 10 platform.
