Video from BlackBerry talks about Android security with BES12
BlackBerry BES12 is the company's MDM (Mobile Device Management) tool that supports BlackBerry, iOS, Windows Phone and the Android platforms. With the manufacturer's first Android flavored handset due to be released by the end of this week, BlackBerry produced a video showing why BES12 is useful for corporations that have a fleet of devices powered by Google's open source OS.

"When you're the world's most popular operating system, you're gonna be a pretty big target for malware," says the voice-over announcer at the beginning of the video. On the screen, a graphic shows that 98% of all malware is targeted at Android. According to the video, BES12 eliminates IT departments' worries about their Android devices getting infected.

As the video alludes to, BES12 works with container applications like Samsung KNOX, Android for Work and Secure Work Space. This means that a phone owner's personal apps are kept separate from more highly guarded corporate and business applications. Personal apps and content cannot be accessed by the company where the user works.

BlackBerry says that BES12 makes IT departments sleep better at night. Find out why by clicking on the video below.

BlackBerry's BES is just one of the reasons why BlackBerry is the leader in the MDM/EMM field, and with their recent acquisitions, like GOOD Technology, they will only become stronger in this field.

I'm waiting for T-Mobile to announce availability so I can get it through them. If they don't announce by Friday, I'm going to order from shop.blackberry.com. What made you cancel, if I may ask?

Well the nexus 6p has pretty much blown me away. So because of that, I decided to just wait it out and see how reviews are for the device before jumping the gun. I'm sure it is also a fantastic device but just want to be sure. But you gotta let me know how it is once you get it

if you go to the crackberry forums, there is a guy there who has one and you can seriously ask him anything you have a question on.

Who's from the Philippines here waiting for the Priv? I think it'll have a hard time to get through with our country. I only saw a kiosk in Sm North Edsa annex.
