BlackBerry issued an open letter to its enterprise customers yesterday, declaring they are “very much alive” and going back to its roots. The Waterloo-based company, now under the leadership of Interim CEO John Chen, aims to focus its efforts on EMM (Enterprise Mobility Management) and security of “all devices.”
To wit, the company has announced a number of enhancements to BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10.2 today. In the press release, BlackBerry said “customers have installed nearly 30,000 BES10 commercial and test servers around the world. Organizations continue to choose BlackBerry because it is the most proven and trusted enterprise mobility management (EMM) solution, supporting iOS, Android and BlackBerry smartphones.”
Some major global business are standing by BlackBerry, namely Morgan Stanley, Boeing, Aneurin Bevan University Health Board and Secusmart — all these are currently testing BES 10.2 in BlackBerry’s Early Adopter and Beta program. BES 10.2 offers new key features such as expanded multi-platform support Android and iOS for email sync, BYOD, and an easier way to securely manage all platforms.
