Research In Motion (RIMM) is gearing up for the impending release of its first BlackBerry 10 devices and the company has now released new mobile device management software to help its customers keep a handle on their shiny new BB10 phones and rival devices. The new BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10, now available for download, aims to be a one-size-fits all MDM platform that’s capable of managing BlackBerry, iOS and Android devices.

RIM says key features of the new service include the integration of BlackBerry Balance functionality to help keep work and personal applications and data separate; BlackBerry World for Work, a new iteration of the company’s traditional app store that gives companies the ability to more easily manage workers’ apps; and an “intuitive enterprise enrollment process for employees that offers a self-service console, and centralized control of assignable profiles for email, SCEP, Wi-Fi, VPN and proxy servers.”

RIM is offering customers a free 60-day trial of the new MDM service.
