[ Edited ]

Announcing BlackBerry Mobile Fusion 6 Service Pack 2!

 

Product Overview

Universal Device Service extends the mobile device management capabilities of BlackBerry® Mobile Fusion - providing your organization with administration and management options for iOS and Android™ devices.

 

Through the same familiar BlackBerry administrative interface, the Universal Device Service enables administrators to perform a number of tasks.

 

  • Add and import iOS and Android users and create group memberships
  • View user and device information
  •  Define IT policies and connectivity settings
  • Configure email profiles, Wi-Fi profiles, VPN profiles, and certificate profiles
  • Manage applications on devices and assist users in the recovery of misplaced devices.

 

Features

Device management

                 

  • Microsoft ActiveSync gatekeeping: The Universal Device Service 6.2 supports the following Microsoft ActiveSync gatekeeping features for Microsoft Exchange Server 2010:

 

  • Allows iOS devices and Android devices to connect to an organization's Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 if the devices are managed and in compliance with the policies defined in the Universal Device Service 6.2

 

  • Allows administrators to configure Microsoft ActiveSync gatekeeping for Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 from the Administration Console

 

  • Provides administrators with an overview of the iOS devices and Android devices that are allowed and blocked from accessing Microsoft ActiveSync

 

  • Automatically lists the following devices in the Universal Device Service 6.2:
    • iOS devices

 

  • Android devices running the TouchDown app

 

  • Selected Motorola Android devices not running the TouchDown app

 

 

Gatekeeping allows administrators to block unauthorized devices from configuring Microsoft ActiveSync to connect to an organization's infrastructure and access work email.

 

Security features

 

  • Proxy servers: The Universal Device Service 6.2 supports outgoing connections from the Core Module through a proxy server. The Universal Device Service 6.2 can be configured to use basic authentication for a proxy server.

 

Using a proxy server provides an additional layer of security for organizations who need to access the Internet for certain functions, such as the APNs certificate signing service, and eases deployment for organizations.

 

  • Conceal the enterprise CA from Internet: The Universal Device Service 6.2 uses SCEP to facilitate the enrollment of certificates between devices and an enterprise CA so that the enterprise CA is not exposed to the Internet.

 

This feature can provide an additional layer of security for organizations that need to prevent the enterprise CA from being exposed to the Internet.

 

  • Microsoft ActiveSync profiles for Motorola devices: The Universal Device Service 6.2 supports configuration of the email and organizer apps on selected Motorola devices that run Android OS.

 

This feature does not require the TouchDown app on selected Motorola devices that run Android OS. The Universal Device Service 6.2 configures the email and organizer data apps using the Motorola EDM API. If the TouchDown app is installed on these selected devices, the TouchDown app will be configured first.
