BlackBerry UEM Cloud brings fingerprint authentication and more

BlackBerry has released an update to BlackBerry UEM Cloud, bringing factory reset protection for Android Enterprise devices, fingerprint authentication and more.

BlackBerry UEM Cloud is a multiplatform EMM solution that provides comprehensive device, app, and content management with integrated security and connectivity, and helps you manage iOS, macOS, Android, Windows 10, and BlackBerry 10 devices for your organisation.

With 12.10.1 (EMEA Region), you can now set up a factory reset protection profile for your Android Enterprise organisation’s devices that have been activated using the Work space only activation type. This profile allows you to specify a user account that can be used to unlock a device after it has been reset to factory settings or remove the need to sign in after the device has been reset to factory settings.

On devices that are activated with Android Enterprise, you can set an update period for apps that are running in the foreground because by default, when an Android app is running in the foreground, Google Play cannot update it. You can also control how Google Play applies the changes to the device such as the user can allow the change, or the change occurs only when the device is connected to a Wi-Fi network.

You can now open the BlackBerry UEM Client and configure fingerprint authentication after BlackBerry Dynamics app activation is complete.

When administrators enable Android SafetyNet attestation, BlackBerry UEM sends challenges to test the authenticity and integrity of Android devices that have been activated with the Android Enterprise, Samsung KNOX, and MDM controls activation types in your organisation’s environment.

Support for deploying B2B apps licensed with your Apple VPP account has been implemented. If you have obtained B2B apps using your Apple VPP account and added your VPP account to BlackBerry UEM, you can now assign those apps to users and groups in BlackBerry UEM.

Finally, there are a bunch of fixes to the Management console and User and device management.

BlackBerry UEM Cloud is included in the Management, Enterprise, Collaboration, Application, and Content Editions of the BlackBerry Enterprise Mobility Suites.
