“BlackBerry continues to be a an industry leader in the smartphone and enterprise mobility market, which is why Tech Data sees an advantage in partnering with BlackBerry to offer BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 to our channel partners,” said Heather Murray, director for TDMobility at Tech Data. “We’ve talked to many IT administrators and there is a common theme that emerges – they all count on the security, user experience and total cost of ownership that comes with BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10. Now that BlackBerry is embracing multi-platform environments by extending the same security to iOS and Android devices, this product offering is attractive to our channel of solution providers.”
BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 represents a consolidation of BlackBerry’s EMM product portfolio, which includes mobile device management (MDM), security, infrastructure and app management.
Also, Secure Work Space for iOS and Android is managed through BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 and provides secure infrastructure for data-at-rest and data-in-transit to iOS and Android devices, so all devices can be from a single console.
“BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 is answering the demands of CIOs across the globe looking to ensure IT professionals are focused on helping manage the business, not just devices,” said Stephen Bates, head of the enterprise business unit at BlackBerry. “We are providing a comprehensive multi-platform management solution that is evolving to an enterprise mobile services platform that supports any of the devices that are deployed.
