Developing Business Apps for Deployment in the BlackBerry 10 Work Perimeter


One of the key differentiators of the BlackBerry 10 platform is undoubtedly BlackBerry Balance. We’ve had an exceptional response from business decision makers, IT professionals, and customers on how this functionality helps to protect both corporate data and the employee need for a functional and engaging experience.
