BES12 version 12.4, the latest version of our multi-OS enterprise mobility management EMM solution, is now available, and there are a lot of great reasons you should consider updating. The advances BlackBerry made since our acquisition of Good in November stretch across the portfolio to deliver a complete enterprise mobility solution, and BES12 is a big piece of it. There are a lot of great reasons to upgrade to version 12.4, but here are the four favorites.
Contact ISEC7 now to upgrade to BES12.4 with one of our BlackBerry Certified engineers.
1. INTEGRATION WITH GOOD DYNAMICS
BES12 version 12.4 offers unified enrollment with Good products to bring together the world’s leading MDM solution and the world’s leading secure mobile application platform. Now users only have to enroll once to take advantage of both capabilities, dramatically improving user experience. Now enterprise IT departments no longer have to choose between multi-level security protections and user experience.
2.ENHANCED SECURITY FOR IOS
Managing Apple iOS devices is a must for organizations that enable personally owned devices on enterprise networks. While BES12 already provides comprehensive mobile device management (MDM) and mobile application management (MAM) for iOS, version 12.4 now extends BlackBerry secure connectivity to iOS, providing a more secure option for enabling the native iOS experience.
3. INTEGRATION WITH OPENTRUST PKI AND CISCO ISE
BES12 version 12.4 adds new integration options, specifically with Opentrust PKI and Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE), to get more out of their existing authentication and network security investments. If your organization uses OpenTrust software to provide PKI services, you can extend certificate-based authentication to the devices that you manage with BES12. You can configure a connection with OpenTrust PKI or OpenTrust CMS and use profiles to send the CA certificate and client certificates to devices.
4. MORE ENDPOINT SUPPORT - MDM FOR OS X
You can now manage Mac computers running OS X version 10.10 and later using BES12. This single console, single administrative experience for managing all devices – including iOS, Android, OS X, and Windows devices, desktops and wearables, whether corporate owned or BYOD – offers significant value to enterprises by making it easier for both users and IT to uphold device security. Users can activate OS X devices using BES12 Self-Service, alleviating administrative burden on IT. Also, IT can assign profiles to users – including IT policies, work email, Wi-Fi, VPN, proxy, certificates and SCEP – and, in the event a device goes missing, send IT administration commands to lock the device or delete data on it.
