KPMG Purchases 3,500 BlackBerry 10 Smartphones & Migrates to BES 10

Z10 Morning

BlackBerry just scored a huge win with leading international consulting firm KPMG. KPMG has ordered 3,500 BlackBerry 10 smartphones and is migrating to the new BlackBerry Enterprise Server 10. They made the choice to continue using BlackBerrys by upgrading their entire mobile fleet in Italy though I wonder what they are going to do in the rest of the world. Here is what they had to say about it:

"Every day our professionals need to share confidential information and need a reliable smartphone with strong security, and the flexibility to meet different working needs," said Davide Grassano, IT Lead Partner at KPMG Milan. "With BlackBerry 10 we have found the best solution in terms of usability, security, connectivity and price. The BlackBerry solution allows our users to have access to shared files and other internal resources, while also working to prevent the accidental leakage of business documents and attachments."
