UEM is something BlackBerry calls An Evolutionary Step in Endpoint Management. BlackBerry UEM converges device, application, and content management for connected mobile devices with a single management console for laptops and desktops.
It also supports all the major mobile platforms, like BlackBerry 10, Android (Android for Work & Samsung Knox), iOS, Windows 10 and OSX.
Easily stated, the UEM is BlackBerry's answer to a simplified and unified foundation for their suites and standalone software offerings. It's a single platform that allows you to manage all your service from one station, essentially. BES12 and Good Dynamics customers can expect a seamless transition to UEM in the coming year.
Check out Inside BlackBerry's blog post about the newly announced UEM:
Years ago, we pioneered the mobile device management (MDM) category with BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES), but as the diversity, volume, and capabilities of mobile devices increased, it became obvious that device-level protection was no longer sufficient to meet the demands of IT managers. So we pushed the market forward with BES12, our cross-platform enterprise mobility management (EMM) solution, which we further enhanced with leading secure mobility solutions through our acquisitions of Good Technology, WatchDox, AtHoc, Secusmart, and other industry innovators.
BlackBerry UEM represents the next, evolutionary step in our mission to secure not just mobile devices, operating systems, apps, and data, but the full Enterprise of Things with unified endpoint management (UEM). BlackBerry UEM converges device, application, and content management for mobile devices with management for laptops and desktops into one administrative console, providing a single point of control for endpoints, apps, and services. And with support for all major platforms, including iOS, Android (including Android for Work and Samsung Knox), BlackBerry 10, Windows 10, and OS X, your users can use the devices they prefer for productivity, without sacrificing security.
A Complete Solution for Secure Enterprise Productivity
BlackBerry UEM is the foundation of the BlackBerry Enterprise Mobility Suite, the most comprehensive set of integrated solutions to protect your business data and boost workforce productivity available.
From a single console, BlackBerry UEM offers unified administration for: BlackBerry Dynamics (formerly known as Good Dynamics) for access to best-in-class secure productivity apps and development tools from BlackBerry; BlackBerry Workspaces (formerly known as WatchDox), our leading secure content collaboration solution; BlackBerry Enterprise Identity, which extends single sign-on to cloud services such as Office 365; and BlackBerry 2FA (formerly known as Strong Authentication), which enables two-factor authentication to enterprise services while eliminating the need for legacy token solutions.
With the BlackBerry Enterprise Mobility Suite and BlackBerry UEM, you can streamline administration and enhance compliance, while arming your employees with best-in-class business productivity tools.
