Blackberry Mobile Fusion hit our radar for obvious reasons. The exploding mobile/devices space presents deep challenges from a device management perspective, but imagine a focused security model with broad device diversity. This is the solution RIM has announced in Blackberry Mobile Fusion including, from our slightly more narrow perspective:

  • Asset management and configuration  management
  • Security and policy definition and management
  • Secure and protect lost or stolen devices (remote lock, wipe)
  • User- and group-based administration
  • Application and software management
  • Connectivity management (VPN, certificates) 

This is an ambitious offering and if secure device management at scale worries you, this announcement is well worth your time to read.
