BlackBerry today announced a revamped BlackBerry Enterprise Partner Program (BEPP) that gives channel partners more flexibility to capture the many valuable opportunities that come from securing the IoT.
With strong interest from customers and partners in the recently updated BlackBerry UEM Cloud, a new Silver tier has been introduced to the BEPP to enable authorized partners to broaden their cloud offering.
According to the company, partners who attain Silver accreditation status will gain the essential skills and knowledge necessary to onboard and support new customers on the BlackBerry UEM platform. Partners can offer, and get recognized for, BlackBerry solutions that meet all the stringent compliance and security requirements of an on-premise solution while benefiting from the flexibility and lower cost of entry associated with the cloud.
Benefits include recurring SaaS revenue and professional services revenue from supporting cloud migration and growth; virtual training; access to the beta community and knowledge base; the availability of NFR licenses to test and trial UEM Cloud deployments within a virtual sandbox environment; and demand generation/ sales support.
The BEPP is designed to help partners gain new competencies that will enable them to meet and exceed market demand. Split into four distinct tiers, the program allows partners to build differentiated solutions/services that leverage BlackBerry’s expertise in cybersecurity, endpoint management, encryption, and data privacy.
