As part of its pivot away from mobile devices and towards enterprise software, BlackBerry has released a new BBM Enterprise SDK that includes communications platform as a service (CPaaS) capabilities. The SDK will enable enterprise developers to integrate secure messaging, voice and video capabilities into their applications and services.
"A distinct entity from consumer-level BBM, BBM Enterprise is built from the ground up with enterprise-grade security," blogged BlackBerry's Marty Beard. "Trusted in industries ranging from government to healthcare, it builds upon BlackBerry's proven security model, protecting data both at rest and in transit, and encrypting messages, voice calls, and video calls. More importantly, it's fast, reliable, and easy to use, both for end users and for IT."
