Certificate Roll-Out for BlackBerry

Easy and safe
(PresseBox) ( Darmstadt, )
eperi - Mobile PKI now also supports RIM BlackBerry's S/MIME encryption. Companies may carry out Over-The-Air (OTA) certificate rollouts easily and - most notably - safely.

Often the S/MIME standard is used for protection of the email on BlackBerry's. The big challenge for companies is the complicated distribution of X.509 certificates. eperi automates the Roll-Out process in companies as well as for the BlackBerry user.

eperi - Mobile PKI allows the secure and efficient use of mobile devices in companies. For BlackBerry devices the solution enables a secure communication also via foreign nodes without affecting the well-known BlackBerry usability. eperi protects RIM BlackBerry's by standard use of certificate based encryption of all communication.

eperi uses the standard interfaces of the operating system to implement security functionality for all applications. Without changing of workflows or applications the secure synchronization of sensitive messages, calendar entries and addresses is ensured. This is done completely transparent for the user.

On the mobile device Mobile PKI stores the certificates and private keys in a safe key store. By linking the key store to the Device ID and/or the SIM card a 2-factor-authentication may be realized - as safe as at Smart Cards use. The device is locked until entry of the correct password. So the unauthorized access as well as the use of the complete device may be prohibited.

eperi enables an automatic (OTA) roll-out of software and certificates.

Authorized by the administrator, software and private keys are installed automatically. There an existing PKI may be used. Several purposes of X.509 certificates are supported.

Now Mobile PKI with S/MIME support is available also for RIM BlackBerry. The messages' transportation encryption is still available as standard.
