The word on the street is that BES10 seems to be doing rather well down under which is nice to hear considering most of the press tend to give BlackBerry a slating. According to theaustralian.com it seems that one in five businesses with more than 20 employees are using BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 - meaning it's the number one mobile enterprise solution being used in Australia.
With BlackBerry still very much having a strong foot hold in the enterprise market and with the Canadian company focused on BES10 - soon to be BES12, it's certainly some encouraging news.
The latest large organization to adopt BES10 is the Australian National Audit Office and professional services company Questas.
BlackBerry managing director ANZ Matthew Ball said the group was continuing its expansion into the Australian enterprise market, with BES10 being adopted across sectors including government, finance, mining and professional services.
"While we continue to win the trust of Australian government departments, we are also seeing significant traction in other regulated and private industries that want to enable workforce mobility with multiple devices, while maintaining company IP and data is protected and secure," Mr Ball said.
Both the ANAO and Questas said they had chosen Blackberry for its security capabilities.
"We looked into other mobile providers, however we found BlackBerry provided the level of security our business needs at both the device and network level, and is able to optimally satisfy our mobile requirements, while catering for other platforms as well," Questas chief information officer Ferdinando Cosentino said.
This is the kind of news we love to see here at CrackBerry. We've seen numerous enterprise organizations adopt BES10 over the last year and I'm eagerly looking forward to more and more.
