Secure Mobile Messaging
BBM® Enterprise allows employees to take advantage of the speed, reliability and privacy of BBM for faster communication, collaboration and decision making while maintaining control over corporate data. It’s the ideal business communication tool because it is mobile and immediate. Unlike enterprise IM tools that were originally designed for use on the desktop, BBM Enterprise offers a truly mobile experience, on the devices employees prefer.
As a part of BlackBerry Secure, BBM Enterprise offers a comprehensive approach to security that addresses the entire enterprise, from endpoint to endpoint. Designed for business and professional organizations, it offers an enhanced security model for instant messaging, voice, and video communications, protecting data end to end (in transit and at rest). With BBM Enterprise, your data is BlackBerry Secure.
Protect Your Assets End-to-End
Whether you’re a regulated business, or a highly security conscious organization, BBM Enterprise offers an enhanced security model for messages, voice and video communications between Android™, iPhone, and BlackBerry® smartphones. It protects corporate data in-transit by adding an additional layer of encryption.
Protect Data on the Device
BBM Enterprise builds upon the proven BlackBerry security model, trusted by security conscious organizations around the world. The secure root of trust starts in BlackBerry smartphone hardware and extends up through software and application layers helping to protect BBM Enterprise messages at all times when they are at rest on the device. BBM Enterprise on iOS and Android protects your BBM Enterprise messages at rest by using AES to encrypt the database, encryption and signing keys.
Protect Data in Transit
BBM Enterprise is designed to provide full end-to-end message, voice, and video encryption from the time a BBM Enterprise user sends a message or begins a chat or call to when the recipient receives the message or the call is ended.
- BBM Enterprise includes an enhanced layer of encryption to help keep your chats secure.
- The sender and recipient have unique public/private encryption and signing keys.
- These keys are generated on the device, by the FIPS 140-2 certified cryptographic library, and are controlled by the enterprise.
- Each message uses a new random symmetric key for message encryption.
- The sender and recipient have unique public/private encryption and signing keys used to secure messages and voice/video calls.
- TLS encryption between the smartphone and the BBM infrastructure helps protect BBM Enterprise messages from eavesdropping or manipulation.
Improve Employee Productivity
Speed up communication, collaboration and sharing between employees with speed, confidence and privacy.
Security Made Simple
All the added security offered by BBM Enterprise happens in the background. When a BBM Enterprise user sends a message, their conversation defaults to the added level of encryption, even if the recipient is a non-BBM Enterprise user.
Designed for Mobile. Built for Speed.
BBM Enterprise offers a better mobile experience than enterprise IM clients that originated on desktop. It allows chats, group discussions, video communications, file sharing, and voice calls to happen with speed and mobility you can’t get over email.
Know When a Message is Read
Employees can communicate confidently with delivery and read notifications that let them know the other person has received and actually saw their message. Even in multi-person chats, BBM Enterprise users can see which contacts have read messages.
Securely Communicate by Voice and Video
Ensure your organization’s voice and video calls are encrypted and secured with BBM Enterprise Voice and Video. When you see the padlock icon, you’ll know BBM Enterprise is safeguarding your communication.
