BlackBerry launches BBM Protected enterprise messaging service

BlackBerry has launched BBM Protected, the first solution in its eBBM Suite for secure enterprise focused messaging service.

As part of the suite, BBM Protected offers an enhanced security model for BBM messages sent between BlackBerry smartphones.

BBM Protected is the only secure mobile instant messaging app that uses a FIPS 140-2 validated cryptographic library, the company claims. BBM Protected enables employees to use the same app to securely message colleagues inside the company for work as they do to chat and share with family and friends outside the company.

Secure BBM Protected chats aren’t limited to users inside the company. Employees can chat securely with BBM Protected users at others companies as they do not need to be on the same BES server and no federation between servers is required, as per the company.

The current release of BBM Protected can be used for BlackBerry smartphones running BlackBerry OS 6.0 or later or BlackBerry 10 in Regulated mode. Versions of BBM Protected for BlackBerry 10 smartphones using BlackBerry Balance, and iOS and Android devices are expected later this year.

The eBBM Suite is a new family of BBM products and services targeted at businesses that offers BBM with additional security and compliance features required by enterprise customers.

According to the company, the eBBM Suite will include new services while meeting enterprises’ needs for security, manageability and control.
