With security on the top of many minds, BlackBerry is introducing iOS and Android support for BBM Protected, its encrypted service for enterprise-level messaging.
As explained by BlackBerry, “BBM Protected offers an enterprise-grade secure instant messaging service with all the features of a consumer IM app, the hardening of on-premise security together with the convenience of a cloud service. All messages are encrypted using keys generated by the communicating mobile devices themselves.
While many small businesses may not need access to BBM Protected, if you feel your employer is important enough to follow stricter protocols for communication between employees, then check it out.
To take advantage, you will need to download BBM from Google Play.
