RIM Launches BlackBerry Balance

by Volker Weber

Research In Motion (RIM) (NASDAQ:RIMM)(TSX:RIM) is advancing work-life balance on BlackBerry® smartphones with BlackBerry® Balance™ - new technology that makes possible the convenience of using a single BlackBerry smartphone for both work and personal purposes without compromising the security of company content and the privacy of personal content. RIM is introducing this technology in response to the growing trend by businesses to allow employees to use personal BlackBerry smartphones for work, or company-owned smartphones for personal, and the need by businesses to secure, manage and control confidential company or client information on these devices.

BlackBerry Balance presents a unified view of work and personal content on a BlackBerry smartphone while keeping the content separate and secure. The division between work and personal content is transparent to the user unless they try to perform actions prohibited by company policy.

Excellent idea. Keep your business and private data separate from each other. With Balance, BES administrators should have no problem allowing users to install their own apps. Requires BES 5.0.3 and the latest BlackBerry 6 device software.

wetten, dass die #policiesfromhell der #paranoidsecurityadministrators das für den kleinen Sven auch trotz Balance nicht ermöglichen werden?

Wäre ich mir an Deiner Stelle nicht so sicher. Aber erst mal BES 5.0.3 und BB 6.

hmm according to engadget not even Torch will be able to support OS7

Flemming Riis, 2011-05-02

Possible. We are talking 6 not 7.

@Armin: Man sollte nicht jedem Geheule, das bestimmte Leute im Internet verbreiten, Glauben schenken. Und nein, ich beziehe mich nicht explizit auf Sven ;-)

It is a very promissing approach. But I think they are a little bit too late. Before this hits decision makers desks "consumeration" has taken place everywhere. Most of the decision makers I know love their iPhone and iPad...and I know only one person who loves a BlackBerry, and that's not you, Abdelkader.

Diesen Sven habe ich auch nicht explizit gemeint ;-) Ich kenne auch selbst solche Paranoiker, auch wenn die zum Glück mit meinem BB nichts zu tun haben...

@vowe , thanks , misread the article thought balance needed 7.
