Security feature in smartphones is very crucial considering that people keep important data on their devices. Therefore, Research In Motion (RIM), the maker of BlackBerry is about to launch its new device management software, Mobile Fusion in the first quarter of 2012. The software will work on range of devices such as Apple’s iPad, iPhone, and Android devices. It will allow corporate IT staff to set and monitor rules for password, apps, and software on devices.
Mobile Fusion allows a company to lock or wipe a lost or stolen device remotely. RIM’s BlackBerry was the preferred device for businesses and government agencies because of encrypted data in BlackBerry devices, which is a key concern for millions of workers needing secure, round-the-clock email and data access. For companies who are shifting from BlackBerry to iPhone and Android devices, security of data is a major concern, which RIP hopes to address with the new software, Mobile Fusion.
Pricing detail for the Mobile Fusion has not yet been decided by RIM.
