Blackberry is failing to compete against the likes of Android and iOS, but this doesn’t mean that the Canadian phone maker is giving up. It looks to get back in the game with Mobile Device Management.
Blackberry said in a press release, “Recently named the Best Mobile Device Management Software for 2013 by UK enterprise IT publication V3, BES10 is the only enterprise mobility management solution capable of delivering comprehensive management and security for devices, apps and content across iOS, Android and BlackBerry devices, all easily managed through a single console. Backed by industry leading global support services, BES10 offers a seamless, scalable and cost-effective way to truly mobilize businesses, enabling organizations to balance end user and corporate needs without compromising security.”
Research Director, Mobile Enterprise at IDC, Stacy Crook, said, “There’s a huge opportunity in the enterprise market for vendors that can meet customer requirements for full turn-key solutions for their security and enterprise mobility management demands. By adding features that support BYOD across any device type, self-service, scalability, and the flexibility to build mobile management into business processes, BlackBerry's latest release of BES10 demonstrates the company's ongoing commitment to its enterprise customer base.”
Head of the Enterprise Business Unit at BlackBerry, Stephen Bates, said, “We enable any organization or government agency to manage iOS, Android and BlackBerry devices without compromising security. No other mobile vendor has the same level of trusted and proven security as BlackBerry. We’ve achieved this with an end-to-end multi-platform solution that’s secured at the device, server and network layer. And now BES10 version 10.2 provides even more tools to help manage BYOD environments and achieve cost efficiencies.”
