The Pentagon has cleared BlackBerry 10 connected via BES 10 and Samsung Android devices connected via Samsung’s Android Knox, for use within the Department of Defense (DoD).
With a very large percentage of BlackBerry devices already being used within the Pentagon (470,000 out of 600,000), the role of BlackBerry including devices and BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 continues to be important and relevant for security conscious organisations.
The approval allows all DoD customers to use the BlackBerry Z10 and BlackBerry Q10 smartphones, and BlackBerry PlayBook tablets on DoD networks.
Blackberry Link is the new way to transfer all your content from your Blackberry 10 device to your computer. This includes pictures, songs and video. It can also be used to transfer your data from a previous device to your new Blackberry 10.
It has seamless content management built in, allowing you to transfer your data to your device over Wi-Fi or USB. Blackberry Link also offers support for iTunes and Windows Media Player, so photos, video and other media can be synced easily.
Blackberry Link can be used to securely backup and restore your device data. The software can also be used to update your device firmware.
The software can be downloaded here or directly from the Blackberry website.
