It was only a few days ago when we heard that RIM was looking out for developers with experience in developing apps for iOS and Android. At that time it was assumed it was for RIM’s upcoming Mobile Fusion service. And now it looks like as if the entire job of designing is done as RIM has launched this software for iOS and Android devices. Announced last year, this platform will allow various enterprises around the world to control and manage different kinds of handsets by remotely setting/monitoring rules for passwords, wiping off the data on a lost or stolen device, locking a range of devices from a single web-based interface.

Just as BlackBerry devices were a hit in the corporate segment because of its popular data encryption feature, now Android and iOS devices will be able to get the same kind of security and data control features. “For businesses and government, managing a mix of mobile devices on any scale is chaotic. Organizations face pressure to allow employees to bring their own devices into the workplace” commented Alan Panezic, Vice President, Enterprise Product Management and Marketing at RIM.

BlackBerry Mobile Fusion software is available as a free download and is priced by the number of devices being managed. Client access licenses (CALs) start at $99 per user or $4 per user per month (billed annually); volume discounts are also available. In addition, RIM is offering a 60 day free trial, so customers can deploy a pilot before purchasing a single CAL. The 60 day free trial is available at https://www.blackberry.com/eBES/trialOrder.do?id=121.
