Android Device Management and Secure Apps

Enhance Security and Control for Android Devices and Apps

Bring Android to Work

BlackBerry® offers software that securely enables and extends Android in the enterprise, helping organizations realize the full potential of Android for improved business collaboration and productivity.  IT gets the advanced device, app, and data security controls, while users get a familiar experience and personal privacy.

Comprehensive Management for Android in the Enterprise

BlackBerry® UEM offers enhanced Android device management, including rich device and app controls and end-to-end secure connectivity.

With BlackBerry UEM, you can:

Enhanced Android Security for the Enterprise
