RIM Announces Blackberry Enterprise Support for iOS Devices

RIM has announced the acquisition of ubitexx (makers of ubi-Suite, a device management system) and by doing so will bring Blackberry Enterprise Server to iOS devices like the iPhone and iPad.

The multi-platform BlackBerry Enterprise Solution will be comprised of optional architectural components based on the configuration of an organization’s mobile deployment and their operational needs. Optional components will include BlackBerry Enterprise Server and BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express for BlackBerry devices, and a separate, secure device management server for Android and iOS devices (based on the foundation of ubi-Suite from ubitexx). It will be possible to deploy multiple components in a virtualized environment on a single server.

Looks like RIM wants to bring the love for iOS users, albeit in a limited capacity. What’s next, BBM for iOS?
