BOGOTA, COLOMBIA–(Marketwired – Oct. 1, 2013) – BlackBerry(R) (NASDAQ:BBRY)(TSX:BB) today announced that the National Police of Colombia is upgrading their BlackBerry smartphones and migrating to BlackBerry’s newest Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) solution, BlackBerry(R) Enterprise Service 10.
The National Police of Colombia selected the BlackBerry solution for its embedded controls that support regulatory compliance in government environments with the highest security requirements. To date, more than 25,000 BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 commercial and test servers have been installed globally, including within the world’s top organizations.
"The National Police of Colombia needs to be able to access critical information on the go in order to effectively do their jobs, which is why BlackBerry is essential to the force," said Eduardo Fernandez Rojo, Managing Director for the region at BlackBerry. "The BlackBerry 10 platform provides an enterprise mobility management solution that is secured end-to-end, which is why it is the most trusted mobile platform by government organizations around the world."
BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 represents a consolidation of BlackBerry’s EMM product portfolio, which includes Mobile Device Management (MDM), security, infrastructure and app management. Secure Work Space for iOS and Android is managed through BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 and provides the most secure infrastructure for data-at-rest and data-in-transit to iOS(R) and Android(TM) devices, making it easy and convenient to manage all devices from a single console.
The combination of BlackBerry smartphones and BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 provides high security standards against data leakage and unauthorized device access to corporate assets. Security of corporate applications and data stored on personal devices (for BYOD deployments) is also embedded seamlessly within the user interface through BlackBerry(R) Balance(TM) technology. BlackBerry Balance separates corporate data from personal content, while preserving the end user’s privacy and consumer experience.
