BlackBerry Launches Secure Work Space for Android and iOS

Today BlackBerry (NASDAQ: BBRY  ) launched Android and iOS integration for its Secure Work Space enterprise system -- allowing users to separate their personal data and apps from work data and apps. 

The new feature, which is part of BlackBerry's Enterprise Service 10, provides businesses a secure way to integrate bring-your-own-device policies while protecting business data. The company launched its BlackBerry Enterprise Service back in January and has been globally testing iOS and Android integration since then.  

The company said in a press release that iOS and Android users will be able to access email and attachments, view their calendar and contacts, and securely browse intranets through the Secure Work Space system.

Thierry Lammers, BlackBerry's director and co-founder of e-office mobile, said, "Secure Work Space builds on BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10, and we found that BlackBerry's secure infrastructure offered our company the best containerization solution to help mobilize our multi-platform environment, while maintaining a great user experience."

According to the release, BlackBerry will offer the new Android and iOS integration to its Enterprise Service Customers over the coming months.
