What is BlackBerry Enterprise Identity?

BlackBerry Enterprise Identity provides single sign-on (SSO) to cloud services such as Microsoft Office 365, G Suite, BlackBerry Workspaces, and many others. With single sign-on, users don't have to complete multiple log ins or remember multiple passwords. Administrators can also add custom services to Enterprise Identity to give users access to internal applications. Users can access the services from any device they want to use, such as iOS, Android, or BlackBerry 10 devices and other computing platforms.

Enterprise Identity is bundled with BlackBerry UEM, BlackBerry UEM Cloud, or BES12. Administrators use the BlackBerry UEM, BlackBerry UEM Cloud, or BES12 console to add services, manage users, and add and manage additional administrators. This integration with BlackBerry EMM products makes it easy to manage users and enable them to access cloud services from their devices.

To use Enterprise Identity you must purchase user licenses for the Collaboration, Application, or Content Editions of BlackBerry Enterprise Mobility Suite, or separate BlackBerry Enterprise Identity user licenses. For more information about BlackBerry Enterprise Identity, including how to purchase Enterprise Identity, see the information on blackberry.com.

The following browsers are supported for administration: Internet Explorer 10 and 11, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Safari. Client use is supported on all the browsers above as well as native browsers on devices running BlackBerry 10 OS version 10.2.1 or later, iOS 8 or later, and Android 4.0 or later.
