BlackBerry Cloud Services for Microsoft Office 365 Launched

Research In Motion - the Canadian smartphone and tablet computer maker has finally rolled out the BlackBerry Business Cloud Services for Microsoft's Office 365 suite.

RIM launched the service after the 3 months long beta testing phase came to an end. With this, enterprise users can now synchronise their BlackBerry devices with Exchange Online over the air. In addition, the new service also brings along with it BlackBerry Balance - the service that enables users to retain their business as well personal data on the same handset, but bares the transfer of content from business applications via simple copy-paste operations.

It also allows users to wipe all business data without affecting the personal information stored in the same handset. The service is also equipped with a central web-management console designed exclusively for IT administrators allowing them to set policies for an individual device as well as a group of devices.

Alan Panezic, Vice President, Enterprise Product Management and Marketing at Research In Motion stated: "RIM is pleased to launch BlackBerry Business Cloud Services for Microsoft Office 365. This new cloud-based option allows customers to cost-effectively support mobility across their organizations and easily manage and secure their BlackBerry deployments."
