According to the company, BBM Protected will be the first offering in the new eBBM Suite, bringing regulated industries secure and reliable real-time mobile messaging.
“BBM has always been an important tool for business users who want real-time messaging that is reliable, trusted and puts control of contacts and personal information in users’ hands,” said John Sims, president, Global Enterprise Solutions at BlackBerry.
Regulated industries need an option for mobile messaging that maintains compliance, but still gives employees the freedom to be productive with peers outside of the organization,” he added.
It is expected to launch this summer and will be available to enterprise customers through a monthly per-user fee.
