It's do or die time for RIM with the launch of its BlackBerry 10 handsets quickly approaching. Before that, however, the company will be launching one other service that may just keep it in the game - BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10.
RIM announced today that BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 is now available to its customers around the world. The software is an enhanced version of its past enterprise mobility management solutions but with some added bells and whistles like updated security.
Here's all the features businesses can expect from the new service:
Those who were already enlisted in the popular BlackBerry 10 Ready Program can start upgrading to the the new service today. For those who haven't, the BlackBerry 10 Ready Program provides users "with a simple and straightforward upgrade path from [their] existing portfolio of enterprise mobility management solutions."
For those who are just not sure, RIM is also offering a 60-day free trial of its new management solution service. You can sign up for it here.
RIM's BlackBerry Enterprise Service is still seen by many as one of the best in the business. Even if its handsets fail, the company could downsize itself and focus solely on its enterprise services. The company may also be looking into licensing out its BlackBerry 10 smartphone software to other hardware manufacturers. RIM still has a lot of fight left in it, and the launch of BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 is a strong step in the right direction.
