Organizations are increasingly mobilizing their workforce, requiring IT to extend their existing investment in Microsoft® technologies to a wide variety of mobile devices and platforms. Successfully mobilizing your Microsoft applications means protecting critical business data such as messaging, documents and customer information. BlackBerry® provides a secure, cross-platform approach for mobilizing Microsoft technologies.
BlackBerry provides multiple approaches for mobilizing Microsoft Exchange. For organizations looking to achieve maximum security and workforce productivity, BlackBerry® Work provides business-class collaboration, and mobile-optimized performance for Microsoft Exchange environments in a secure, containerized environment. BlackBerry Work offers business features including calendar management, document viewing and editing and integration with other Microsoft services that native clients cannot match. By utilizing native Exchange ActiveSync (EAS) protocols, BlackBerry Work seamlessly integrates with your existing Exchange environment to provide an Outlook-like mobile experience. BlackBerry Work maximizes your employee productivity while delivering consistent security across devices and OS versions. For those who prefer the built-in phone clients, BlackBerry can also provide secure connectivity to the Exchange backend to support these clients.
BlackBerry provides a turnkey solution for securely mobilizing common Microsoft® Office applications such as Microsoft® Word®, Microsoft® Excel® and Microsoft® PowerPoint®. Users can easily open, view, edit, print to PDF and save the attachments that come into their inbox every day. BlackBerry Work and BlackBerry® Access securely mobilize the full capabilities of Office apps via Microsoft’s Office Web Apps Server. Users get the native experience and rich feature set of Office they expect, while IT gets the security it needs to extend document editing to mobile devices. BlackBerry Documents 2 Go also delivers similar functionality in a standalone app for those who prefer such a deployment model.
With its optional cloud deployment model, both the BlackBerry® Dynamics Secure Mobility Platform and BlackBerry® UEM can manage your entire mobile app ecosystem from the cloud, an ideal complement to your Microsoft® Office 365 deployment. For organizations that have moved their messaging infrastructure to Office 365, BlackBerry offers a fully cloud-based deployment across secure email, collaboration and MDM. BlackBerry Work can be run either in the cloud or on-premise, and can support Office 365 as well as hosted Exchange environments. For organizations in the middle of an Office 365 migration, a cloud-based BlackBerry Work deployment can support both your Office 365 and legacy Exchange users in a single deployment. For those who wish to use the built-in email apps on their phone, BlackBerry UEM can offer cloud-based Exchange ActiveSync gatekeeping to protect data in transit. No matter your architecture or topology, BlackBerry delivers secure collaboration quickly and flexibly.
BlackBerry Share securely mobilizes content stored in Microsoft SharePoint repositories. It enables mobile business users to securely access, download and share documents on their choice of device. BlackBerry Share supports key SharePoint operations such as: browse, search, bookmark, download, synchronize, upload, check out, open-in to edit, open-in to annotate and check in changes to a document. All this while maintaining end-to-end encryption to protect document content, and deeply integrating with BlackBerry Work and other apps built on the BlackBerry Dynamics Secure Mobility Platform to accelerate user productivity on the go.
The BlackBerry Dynamics Secure Mobility Platform pervasively supports integration with Microsoft® OneDrive™ for Business. Any app built on the platform can quickly and securely access or save documents to OneDrive for Business. This includes collaboration applications like BlackBerry Work, a wide set of secure business apps, and custom apps.
BlackBerry Connect enables secure instant messaging, corporate directory lookup and user presence, all from an easy-to-use interface on the user’s mobile device of choice. The BlackBerry Dynamics platform integrates Microsoft® Lync® user presence as an out-of-the-box modular service for developers to easily integrate into custom-built apps, streamlining workflows that require a specific person to be contacted in real-time.
Microsoft® Dynamics CRM for BlackBerry enables sales organizations to enjoy a native Dynamics user experience, while giving IT the security to protect regulated and proprietary customer, contact and pipeline information. With Microsoft Dynamics CRM for BlackBerry you can speed sales cycles and improve customer satisfaction through real-time access to quotes, orders, and customer data while meeting security baselines and regulatory requirements.
Provide robust support for the Windows® and Windows Phone platform. BlackBerry solutions such as BlackBerry Dynamics, BlackBerry Work, BlackBerry Access and BlackBerry UEM support Microsoft’s latest devices platforms but also provide enterprises with the flexibility to support non-Microsoft devices running iOS, Android, OS X, BlackBerry and other common mobile operating systems. With the BlackBerry Enterprise Mobility Suite, operations teams can set both Mobile Device Management (MDM) and app-specific policies on Windows devices, users can utilize business-grade secure email, and developers can quickly develop secure business apps using the BlackBerry Dynamics SDK. BlackBerry accelerates rollout of fleets of Windows devices.
