BlackBerry Enterprise Customers Migrate to Good Secure EMM Suites
WATERLOO, ONTARIO--(April 1, 2016) - BlackBerry Limited (NASDAQ:BBRY)(TSX:BB), a global leader in mobile communications, announced today strong traction with Good® Secure EMM Suites, with more than one hundred customers worldwide - covering tens of thousands of users - adopting the EMM solution. These customers are seamlessly moving to the recently introduced EMM platform, enhancing their secure mobility management, workforce productivity, and communication and collaboration capabilities. The new Good Secure EMM Suites provide simple and flexible options for customers to deploy industry-leading security across devices, apps, content and data. These tailored mobility suites meet the current and future needs of businesses of any size through a single integrated offering of BES®12, Good Dynamics and WatchDox® by BlackBerry.
Customers are embracing this newest EMM platform from BlackBerry because of its multi-OS support from a single console with iOS, Android (including Android for Work and Samsung KNOX), BlackBerry, Windows and Mac OS - and for any ownership model (BYOD, COPE, COBO), even in mixed environments. Adoption also lets customers simplify infrastructure and commercial framework by consolidating licensing and architectures of their heritage environments from BlackBerry and Good. It also enables them to manage an increasingly complex set of custom and 3rd party applications through the Good Secure EMM Suites.
"We have chosen BlackBerry's Good Secure Enterprise and Collaboration Suites as it is an EMM platform that will help us mobilize our business in the future," said Gil Gouty, Chief Technical Officer, Caisse Nationale d'Assurance Vieillesse.
"We are very excited about Good Work and Good Dynamics providing secure container and collaboration apps. The new Good Secure Collaboration EMM Suite, including the BES12 multi-OS EMM platform, is very promising and we expect it to be a long-term solution for our organization to build out our mobile app program and drive productivity anytime, anywhere while maintaining the security of our data and network," said Stephan Schleibinger, Head of Front Office, MBDA Deutschland GmbH.
"Customers are commending BlackBerry for building a comprehensive set of capabilities that helps them achieve business outcomes immediately, regardless of where they are on the mobile maturity curve," said Carl Wiese, President Global Sales at BlackBerry. "The Good Suites provide customers with a unique solution in the marketplace - access to thousands of secure productivity applications, custom apps, secure document management, Identity and Access Management solutions delivered on any device through a single vendor."
BlackBerry manages the mobile infrastructure of tens of thousands of customers worldwide. In the most recent quarter over 3,600 customer wins have been added, including competitive wins.
