Research in Motion (RIM) has updated its BlackBerry mobile device management service, to add new features for iOS and Android services.
RIM said the service will give administrators better control and security tools for running a bring your own device (BYOD) based business.
"Organisations are increasingly looking for a trusted partner to help them manage the proliferation of both corporate provided and employee provided or BYOD mobile devices," said senior director of enterprise product management at RIM Jeff Holleran.
"While BlackBerry Mobile Fusion will allow customers to manage BlackBerry PlayBook tablets as well as iOS and Android devices today, it will also prepare customers for a simple and straightforward upgrade to BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10, when it launches together with the first of our new BlackBerry 10 smartphones."
RIM said the update will give administrators improvements for Wi-Fi, VPN, and ActiveSync configurations. Users using BlackBerry Playbooks with the service will get the added benefits of over-the-air enrollment and full encryption for Microsoft Exchange.
Mobile Fusion support also gets extended from 44 to 81 countries with the update.
The update comes as RIM attempts to re-establish itself during a difficult period in the company's history. RIM reported losses of $518m last June.
However, RIM is planning to release its BlackBerry 10 next year in an attempt to reclaim some of the company's former glory. After a slew of delays, the company hopes the latest BlackBerry will reignite the firm's prospects.
The Mobile Fusion update is currenlty available. RIM is currenlty offering a 60-day free trial to customers interested in the service.
