Mobilize Your Existing Microsoft Investments While Protecting Your Data
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 sensitive customer information. BlackBerry® provides an easy, secure, cross-platform approach for mobilizing Microsoft technologies.
Mobilize Office 365 With BlackBerry UEM
BlackBerry® Unified Endpoint Manager (BlackBerry® UEM) supports the direct management of Microsoft® Office 365™ productivity apps (such as Microsoft® Word, Excel®, and PowerPoint®), alongside existing corporate applications managed by BlackBerry. Administrators can apply policies to Office 365 apps in a single console that’s used to manage other corporate apps – whether they’re managed by native OS MAM, third-party containers, or BlackBerry® Dynamics1. BlackBerry UEM also allows IT admins to deploy MAM-protection policies for Office 365 apps alongside BlackBerry management and security policies.
Deploy Microsoft Office 365 Alongside BlackBerry Dynamics
With their 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 quick, flexible, and secure collaboration.
BlackBerry Work and BlackBerry Share securely mobilize content stored in Microsoft SharePoint repositories. They enable mobile business users to securely access, download and share corporate documents on their choice of device. BlackBerry Work and BlackBerry Share support 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. At the same time, the apps maintain end-to-end encryption to protect document content. The SharePoint files integrate seamlessly with other apps built on the BlackBerry Dynamics Secure Mobility Platform, such as instant messaging or high-fidelity document editing, to accelerate user productivity on the go.
Mobilize OneDrive for Business
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 for email and editing, a wide set of secure business apps, and custom apps.
Mobilize Lync and Skype for Business
BlackBerry® Connect integrates with Microsoft® Lync® and Skype for Business to enable secure instant messaging, file share, corporate directory lookup and user presence, all from an easy-to-use interface on any device. The BlackBerry Dynamics platform even integrates the user presence capability from Lync and Skype for Business as an out-of-the-box modular service for developers to easily integrate into their own custom-built apps. This user presence feature improves decision making, streamlining workflows that require a specific person to be contacted in real-time.
Mobilize Microsoft Dynamics CRM
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.
