BlackBerry to Offer Mobile Management Solution for iOS, Android Users

Written by: admin Date of published: . Posted in test

BlackBerry is hard at work to bring a mobile management solution to Android and iOS users that will allow them to separate and secure their work and personal data.

The Canadian firm announced today its secure work space solution for iOS and Android, which will be managed through BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10, will be available by the end of June. Closed beta testing has already begun.

The company said an update for BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10, planned soon, will extend BlackBerry security capabilities for data-at-rest and data-in-transit while providing “complete separation between work and personal data.”

The BlackBerry secure work space solution includes secured client applications for e-mail, calendar, contacts, tasks, memos, secure browsing and document editing for each device that is provisioned via BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10.

BlackBerry is creating a mobile management solution for iOS users.

“With BlackBerry Balance technology, we offer the industry’s only true compromise-free separation of work and personal data and applications,” enterprise mobile computing executive vice-president David Smith said in a statement.  “With secure work space for iOS and Android devices, we’re extending as many of these features as possible to other platforms, critical in today’s Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) world.

“BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 offers administrators a single, intuitive platform enabling them to effectively and securely manage a variety of devices while protecting their corporate assets and at the same time providing employees the flexibility they desire.”

BlackBerry said its secure work space solution allows users to save time, energy and money because they will no longer be forced to configure and manage expensive VPN infrastructures to gain access to data and applications residing behind their corporate firewalls.

Also, additional applications can easily be secured and added to the workspace, without having to modify source code.

“The vast majority of Smartphones on the market aren’t adequately secure for corporate or government work,” said Enderle Group principal analyst Robert Enderle. “Currently BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 combined with BlackBerry Balance or Secure Work Space has the only volume solution which has been designed from the ground up to provide the security most IT departments require.

“With this announcement BlackBerry is expanding beyond their own top to bottom approach to security to address this need on other platforms.  With this product BlackBerry is showcasing their security legacy by providing a stronger cross platform security solution than anyone else can in the market.”

More details are to be announced at the BlackBerry Live conference in May,  in Orlando, Florida.

Andy Rubin Begins New Role at Google Today – Sundar Pichai Takes Over Rubin’s Baby: Android

Written by: admin Date of published: . Posted in test

The chief architect of Android, Andy Rubin, begins his new role at Google today, creating “more moonshots” for the technology giant.

While it has not been announced just what it is Rubin will be doing, CEO Larry Page obviously has high hopes for his future in the company.

“Having exceeded even the crazy ambitious goals we dreamed of for Android—and with a really strong leadership team in place—Andy’s decided it’s time to hand over the reins and start a new chapter at Google,” Page wrote in a blog post.  “Andy, more moonshots please!”

Rubin’s arrival at Google eight years ago kick-started the firm’s mobile software development program because he brought with him Android.

The first Android Smartphone was released in the fall of 2008 and, in just a little more than four years, it has become the only operating system to not only give Apple’s iOS a run for its money, but surpass it as the most-used system. So far, a total of 750 million Android devices have been activated.

Rubin penned a farewell letter to his Android team that touched on the accomplishments and hard work of the past number of years.

Here is an excerpt from his letter:

Android has always been about openness — the idea that a thousand brains are better than one. Just as the ecosystem has grown, so has our team at Google. I am incredibly proud of the phenomenal group of people that spend their days (and nights) building the Android platform and services. Just look at last year…a lean yet incredibly ambitious team released Jellybean with Google Now, launched Google Play in many languages and countries and collaborated with several partners to build three new Nexus devices to help drive innovation in the ecosystem.

Today, the success of Android combined with the strength of our management team, gives me the confidence to step away from Android and hand over the reins. Going forward, Sundar Pichai will lead Android, in addition to his existing work with Chrome and Apps. Hiroshi Lockheimer — who many of you already know well — plus the rest of the Android leadership team will work closely with all of our partners to advance Android and prepare the platform for new products and services yet to be imagined.

As for me, I am an entrepreneur at heart and now is the right time for me to start a new chapter within Google. I am amazed by what we have accomplished from those early days (not so long ago!), and remain passionate about the power of a simple idea and a shared goal — an open source platform freely available to everyone — to transform computing for people everywhere.

Pichai, who heads the company’s Chrome Web browser and operating system for lightweight laptop computers, will now add Android to his list of responsibilities.

“Sundar has a talent for creating products that are technically excellent yet easy to use — and he loves a big bet,” wrote Page. “Take Chrome, for example. In 2008, people asked whether the world really needed another browser. Today Chrome has hundreds of millions of happy users and is growing fast thanks to its speed, simplicity and security. So while Andy’s a really hard act to follow, I know Sundar will do a tremendous job doubling down on Android as we work to push the ecosystem forward.”

There has been some speculation that the change in command is an opportunity for Google to combine Android and Chrome for a more seamless experience for Smartphone and tablet users.
