Bloomberg bbs BFW can't load in IOS MobileIron partition

We require our staff to use MobileIron MDM and read their corporate emails using
MobileIron's  Email+ (a secure email client by MI).

Several staff read Bloomberg's BFW (Bloomberg First W)  news which is not in
http nor https format but  bbs format which MI can't load though this could
load in Apple IOS partition.

Q1:
Does Bloomberg offers http or https  instead of bbs ?  It's the
trading staff who subscribes so I don't hv Bloomberg's support
access

Q2:
We have logged a case with MI & MI ack'ed they can't support bbs:
Bloomberg was supposed to be used globally, so how is it that MI
can't support it.  Any workaround?

BFW (Bloomberg First World) is a podcast so I'd suppose unless you are locking down podcasts the user would be able to download an app off of their personal partitioned space and still listen in BBS. BFW is now Daybreak and it appears to be offered in HTTPS: https://www.bloomberg.com/podcasts/first_word

Q2:

It depends, what do you want to do with it...block it, inspect it, eavesdrop?

Let me know so I can better help you!
