BBM Enterprise

BBM® Enterprisegives employees access to faster communication, collaboration, and decision-making, while providing enhanced security for corporate data. BBM Enterprise is available for BlackBerry®, Android, and iOS smartphones.

Protect Message Data In Transit

BBM Enterprise is designed to provide complete end-to-end message encryption. From the moment your employee sends a message, until the recipient receives it, the message is encrypted. It incorporates two layers of security.

  • BBM Enterprise introduces an enterprise-grade layer of encryption to the messaging security model.
    • Messages and calls between BBM Enterprise users are encrypted using a PGP-like model. 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.
    • BBM and BlackBerry are not involved in brokering the key exchanges, so at no time are they  stored within the BlackBerry infrastructure.
    • Each message uses a new random symmetric key for message encryption.
  • TLS encryption between the smartphone and the BBM infrastructure helps protect BBM messages from eavesdropping or manipulation.

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 the BlackBerry smartphone hardware and extends through software and application layers that help to protect BBM Enterprise messages at all times, when they are at rest on the device. BBM Enteprise on BlackBerry, iOS, and Android also protects your BBM messages at rest by using AES to encrypt the BBM Enterprise database.

Easily Deploy and Manage

BBM Enterprise is easy to deploy and manage. For all BlackBerry, iPhone, and Android deployments, BBM Enterprise is managed through the cloud-based Enterprise Identity by BlackBerry management console. There’s no new hardware to purchase, no new servers to install, and no new OS updates are required. And with IT policy amalgamation, you can quickly add BBM Enterprise to existing IT policies.
