The BlackBerry Mobile Fusion 6 Service Pack 2 upgrade introduced today will include gatekeeping software designed to only allow mobile devices deemed compliant by IT shops to access Microsoft ActiveSync installations as well as other standard features. Existing customers can avail this exciting upgrade for free.
ActiveSync configurations for Android devices that support Motorola Enterprise Device Management software will be supported by this upgrade. Mobile Fusion has been developed for the aid of IT shops, so that they can securely manage iOS, Android and BlackBerry devices. RIM has introduced this tool as an initiative so that they can move mobile management capabilities beyond its own BlackBerry platform.
RIM will also unveil two new BlackBerry 10 smartphones and the BlackBerry 10 OS on 30th January of next year. BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 has been so named by the company because it represents its next-generation BlackBerry Enterprise Server, a product still widely used by organizations worldwide to manage secure wireless connections.
A blog post made by RIM regarding the update, doesn’t talk in details about the BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10, although a spokeswoman clarified that the upgrade is to facilitate the transition to a newer advanced version termed as the BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10.
