What’s new in BlackBerry UEM Cloud Part 2

We’ve just released the latest update to BlackBerry UEM Cloud. Among the many upgrades in UEM that will improve your ability to manage mobile devices in the enterprise, we’ve added new features for device activation and for Android, iOS, and Windows 10 devices.

When you’re done reading, click over to our other blog post to learn about other new features such as support for BlackBerry services, deployment, the management console, and IBM Notes Traveler.

Device activation

  • Activate multiple devices: You can let users activate multiple devices with different activation types by pairing activation passwords with activation profiles. For example, you might want users to activate work devices with a “full control” activation type and activate personal devices with an activation type that allows user privacy. You can now manually expire activation passwords at any time if required.
  • Device activation certificates: The device activation process for iOS and Android devices is streamlined. Users no longer need to verify and accept the certificate information to authenticate with BlackBerry UEM. This is now done automatically.


  • Android for Work: Enterprise deployment and user enrollment for Android for Work is simplified in BlackBerry UEM Cloud. To support Android for Work devices, you no longer need to set up a Google domain and connect it to BlackBerry UEM Cloud, although this method is still supported. You must have the most recent version of the BlackBerry UEM Client installed on your organization’s devices before you can use this feature.
  • Password requirements: For Android for Work devices running Android OS 7.0 or later, you can now enforce password requirements for work space apps as well as the device. In the management console, you can send commands to the device to specify a work space password.


  • Lost Mode for supervised iOS devices: Lost Mode allows you to lock a device, set a message that you want to display, and view the current location of the lost device. You can enable Lost Mode in BlackBerry UEM Cloud for supervised iOS devices running iOS 9.3 or later.
  • iOS Work Apps icon: You can configure the iOS Work Apps icon so that users can view it in full screen mode on their devices.
  • iOS apps: For supervised iOS 9.3.2 and later devices, you can specify a list of apps to allow on users’ devices. All other apps can be installed but cannot be launched and will not be seen on devices. You can add any built-in apps directly to the allowed or restricted list in a compliance profile.
  • App configurations for iOS: You can now create an app configuration from an XML template that uses the AppConfig schema (a standardized format defined by AppConfig Community), copy another app configuration, or create an app configuration manually.
  • Manage notifications for apps on supervised iOS devices: You can use per-app notification profiles to configure the notification settings for system apps and apps that you manage using BlackBerry UEM Cloud. Per-app notification profiles are supported for supervised iOS devices running iOS 9.3 or later.
  • Password autofill option for managed domains profiles: Managed domains profiles include a new option to allow password autofill for the web domains that are specified in a profile. This option is supported for supervised iOS devices running iOS 9.3 or later
  • Network usage profile: When you configure the network usage profile, you now have the option to select apps from a list instead of typing the app package ID.
  • Wi-Fi profile – new QoS settings for iOS 10 devices: For iOS 10 devices, you can configure QoS settings in Wi-Fi profiles to specify whether traffic can use L2 and L3 marking.

Windows 10

Windows Information Protection for Windows 10 devices: You can configure Windows Information Protection profiles to separate personal and work data on devices, prevent users from sharing work data outside of protected work apps or with people outside your organization, and audit inappropriate data sharing practices. You can specify which apps are protected and trusted to create and access work files.
