RIM has announced new multi-platform management solution for enterprise. The solution will incorporate secure device management for iOS, Android, and tablets all managed from convenient web-based console.
We’ve been hearing a lot about multi-platform deployments gaining steam in enterprise and this looks like a good tool for IT departments and CTOs to manage a multi-platform deployment. The web console will help manage and distribute software, manage policies, inventory and security services.
This new solution is from RIM’s acquisition of Ubitexx, a company that specializes in multiplatform mobile deployment software. They make a point of mentioning that there are many more security options available on the BlackBerry platform but I still find it interesting that RIM has listened to their CTO clients and embraced multiplatform deployments. RIM intends to launch this service for general availability summer 2011.
