Server and components

Support for multiple BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 domains: A BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 domain consists of the BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 databases and any BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 instances that connect to them. You can manage multiple domains from a single instance of BlackBerry Management Studio. Managing multiple domains from a single console allows you to accommodate different administrative models, locations, and government regulations for your organization.

Proxy support

Proxy support for work space-enabled devices: BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 version 10.1.3 allows you to direct HTTP traffic for the work browser on supported iOS devices and Android devices through a proxy server. To route work browser data through a proxy server, you must create and assign a proxy profile for the Secure Work Space to user accounts or groups. Proxy profiles for the Secure Work Space support proxy servers that use Basic Authentication, Integrated Authentication, or no authentication. For Android devices, you must specify the proxy server manually. For iOS devices, you can specify the proxy server manually or you can select the proxy server automatically using a PAC file.

Proxy support for global HTTP data traffic for supported iOS devices: BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 version 10.1.3 allows you to direct all HTTP traffic to and from the personal space on iOS devices through a proxy server. This is supported for iOS devices that run iOS 6.0 or later that are supervised using the Apple Configurator. To route data from the personal space through a proxy server, you must create and assign a global HTTP proxy profile to user accounts or groups. You can specify the proxy server manually or you can select the proxy server automatically using a PAC file. Changes for installing work space apps

Managing work space apps: BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 version 10.1.3 gives administrators more control over the apps that can be installed and run in the work space on iOS devices and Android devices. In previous releases, any app that was appropriately secured and re-signed by the app developer could be installed and run in the work space. In BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 version 10.1.3 and later, secured and re-signed apps can only be installed and run in the work space if you assign them to users with a software configuration
