BBM Protected update brings Cloud Directory Service and more

BlackBerry launched enhancements to BBM Protected Friday, that provide simple, secure instant messaging with strong IT control for enterprise customers.

BBM Protected Cloud Directory Service enables enterprise users to start BBM chats with their coworkers within the same organization without the need to first send a BBM invite. This service enables users to find and connect with their coworkers more quickly and easily, and ultimately increases their productivity.

In addition to the BBM Cloud Directory Service IT Policy, BBM Protected now offers two additional management controls:

BBM Protected Wipe Data

This IT Policy enables IT Admins to increase control over corporate data by having the ability to remotely wipe all BBM activity including: Contacts, Chats, Groups, Channels, and BBM Protected encryption and signing keys.

The user retains ownership for their BBID credentials for future use. With a range of device deployment models in any given organization where some devices may be corporately-owned and some BYOD, having the ability to remotely wipe corporate data ensures IT Admins have the peace of mind that corporate data will not be left vulnerable when an employee departs an organization.

BBM Protected Disable BBM Channels

This IT Policy gives IT Admins the flexibility to turn off BBM Channels by user, which controls content access for users in their organization.

The BBM Protected update has started rolling out today.
