BlackBerry 10 got 18,000 Server Installations by Fortune 500


According to the smartphone maker, 60 percent of the Fortune 500 have either ordered or downloaded and installed BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10.

BlackBerry has 18,000 BlackBerry Enterprise Service (BES) 10 installations to date, since the next-generation mobile device management service was launched in January.

In a press release on Thursday, the Waterloo, Ontario-based smartphone maker said it has added Whirlpool Corporation and BDO Canada to its enterprise mobility management roster. It also noted that 60 percent of the Fortune 500 have ordered, downloaded or installed the product since its release.

In prepared comments, Strategy Analytics director of mobility Kevin Burden said: “The company’s ability to bring secure workspace capabilities to iOS and Android alongside BlackBerry, gives IT managers the tools needed to manage the complexity that ‘bring your own device’ has brought to many environments.”

Just four months after BES 10 was first released, the company updated the software to version 10.1, which now offers simplified deployments and more granular controls over IT policy options — a particularly useful feature designed for governments with staff holding regulated-level security clearances.

A few weeks later, we learned that BlackBerry launched BES 10.1 as part of a cloud-based offering, which will further integrate with the current trend of messaging platforms moving towards the cloud.
