    BlackBerry Previews New Cloud-based Enterprise Mobility Management Solution

    Solution provides cross-platform enterprise mobility management in the cloud

    ORLANDO, FLORIDA–(Marketwired – Oct. 7, 2013) – GARTNER SYMPOSIUM/ITxpo – At Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2013, BlackBerry(R) (NASDAQ:BBRY)(TSX:BB) today previewed a new multi-platform cloud-based enterprise mobility management (EMM) solution that will enable businesses to easily secure and manage corporate and personal devices. The new cloud-based EMM solution will give business the ease, flexibility and cost controls to support BYOD, allowing employees to enjoy the content and apps they demand, while maintaining the security requirements and productivity gains of mobilizing, for the organization.

    Gartner predicts that half of employers will require employees to supply their own device for work purposes by 2017.(i) Gartner also predicts that through 2014, employee-owned devices will be compromised by malware at more than double the rate of corporate-owned devices(ii), putting device and app management high on the priority list for business and IT leaders alike. With BYOD growing every day, businesses need an EMM solution that is easy to deploy and manage, requires no big upfront costs, and satisfies the needs of their employees without compromising the businesses’ security requirements.

    BlackBerry’s new multi-platform EMM cloud solution will offer businesses mobile device management (MDM), mobile application management (MAM), security standards, and self-service capabilities for the end-user. The solution will be available as a service, satisfying end-users, and business leaders and IT departments’ needs for an easy to deploy, easy to manage and highly cost effective solution for smartphone and tablet management.

    "BlackBerry is evolving. As the industry has adopted BYOD and mixed mobile environments, we’ve responded with our multi-platform EMM solution," said Stephen Bates, Head of the Enterprise Business Unit at BlackBerry. "The new cloud-based EMM solution will bring all the benefits of our on-premise offering, which is trusted by more businesses and governments around the world than any other enterprise mobility solution, to customers as a cloud service that lets them easily manage BlackBerry, iOS and Android devices more cost efficiently than ever before."

    BlackBerry offers/offered cloud-based services for enterprise and other organisations called BlackBerry Business Cloud Service and BlackBerry Management Service. Research In Motion bought and later sold a cloud hosting company in Ireland if memory serves me.
