The Internet of Things (IoT) is emerging as one of the most significant developments of our time. The Enterprise of Things is the range of IoT devices connecting to the enterprise that need to be secured, managed, and enabled by IT.

These connected endpoints extend beyond laptops, smartphones and tablets to drive new levels of business transformation in the enterprise.

Virux has teamed up with BlackBerry to enable IT departments to manage and secure the data accessed and captured through its smart glasses. Deployed with BlackBerry UEM software, Vuzix Smart Glasses will enable the millions of employees estimated to use head worn wearable devices on the job to communicate clearly and access critical data, without interruption from the task at hand.

“We are excited to partner with BlackBerry, a global leader in secure operating systems, mobile communications and mobile device management to deliver secure and simple applications to BlackBerry’s enterprise customers built around the Vuzix M300 Smart Glasses”, said Paul Travers, President and CEO of Vuzix.

Smart glasses represent a new class of enterprise devices that are appearing in the workplace, requiring new levels of security and support. BlackBerry Unified Endpoint Manager (BlackBerry UEM) is software that gives you complete management, control, and enablement capabilities for this growing number and range of connected devices.

Mark Wilson, SVP and Chief Evangelist, BlackBerry said,

“As more and more devices and connection points emerge, IT departments are tasked with not only ensuring data and information are secure, but also providing a unified workspace for employees,”

“We’re excited to partner with Vuzix to provide an innovative solution that will improve productivity and most importantly help keep people and information safe.”

Wearable devices such as smart glasses allow workers to remain securely connected in hands-free environments, maximizing uptime and accelerating task completion.

As more wearable devices are used in the enterprise, BlackBerry UEM allows IT to support secure deployment and provisioning. IT can apply a consistent set of productivity applications and corporate policies, as well as commands such as locking, unlocking, and wiping of the smart glasses.

BlackBerry UEM supports the following management capabilities for smart glasses:

  • Secure enrollment – Enroll device in “Work only” mode
  • Policy and profile assignment – Define network setting, enforce encryption
  • IT actions – Lock, unlock, and wipe device
  • Compliance – Require software updates
  • App management and deployment – Provision with third party apps
  • Geo location – Locate and apply policies based on location
  • Single user / multiple devices – Manage varying deployment options
  • Flexible group-based assignments – Leverage existing UEM groups and assigned policies
  • BlackBerry connectivity – Connect smart glasses to the BlackBerry secure network
  • Dynamics platform – Deploy BlackBerry container technology

Deployed with BlackBerry UEM software, Smart Glasses will enable the millions of employees estimated to use head worn wearable devices on the job to communicate clearly and access critical data, without interruption from the task at hand.

The Vuzix M300 Smart Glasses featuring BlackBerry UEM, a simple way to deploy and manage smart glasses will be overviewed during the ‘Best Practices for Deploying Smart Glasses in Your Enterprise’ webinar on August 10th, 2017 at 12:00 pm (Eastern Time).

Additionally, Vuzix will be showcasing the M300 Smart Glasses at BlackBerry’s Security Summit 2017 taking place in London on October 24-25, 2017 and in New York on November 14-15, 2017.
