BlackBerry Balance

This feature allows corporate and personal data to be partitioned off from one another despite being stored on the same device, and is undoubtedly one of the standout business features of BB10.

It has to be activated via the firm's BlackBerry Enterprise Server offering to be used, and is also being extended to iOS and Android users in the coming months.

To access the corporate workspace, end users simply swipe down from the top of the Z10's screen and are offered a choice of two buttons: one will take them to personal space, while the other will direct them to the corporate section.

IT admins can set controls dictating what apps can be downloaded to the corporate workspace, and it is virtually impossible for sensitive data to be copied to the personal side.

This feature makes it easy for business users to stop their personal calendars and emails getting mixed up with their corporate ones, and also means - in the event their BlackBerry is lost or they change jobs - the device can be easily wiped without any personal data being lost.

The BYOD benefits of this feature are fairly obvious, but it can also be used by bosses to set limits on when employees access corporate emails, for example, and - in turn - support their staff in striking a better work-life balance.
