    For those companies that use IM for communications this will be a very welcomed addition - both for security purposes and for data retention.

    Will give BES12 an advantage over other MDM platforms.

    NO it won't initially....

    BBM Protected encryption applies to BBM messages, attachments and files sent between BBM Protected users.
    It also applies to multi-person BBM chats where all participants are BBM Protected users and BBM Groups that
    have been established as Protected BBM Groups. It does not apply to BBM Voice and BBM Video calls at this time.

    I bet the Blackphone guy already knows more about how BBM Protect is going to work - and not going to work, than many people here.

    That would be a heck of a solution if they could offer encrypted voice and video. Messaging is just the first step.

    How quickly will today's governments around the world ban BlackBerry from their countries unless BlackBerry turns over encryption keys? They already threatened BlackBerry over BBM and BIS encrypted data and most people don't bother to understand how BlackBerry appeased those governments. They, including Blackphone's CEO incorrectly accuse BlackBerry for selling out their customers. BlackBerry has to let Android or iPhone (the bigger players) take that leap first or else BlackBerry would be the only one who will be singled out.

    I'm not sure what you're trying to say here. Can you clarify

    Nope. The very first slide showed BB10 communicating with a 9900 over BBM protect

    Plans are it will be coming to iOS and Android device also, and most likely to Windows devices too. They are moving away from being hardware specific.
