Earlier today BlackBerry announced that it was recognized as a Leader in the Forrester Wave™ report.
BlackBerry was evaluated against 14 other of the most significant mobile device management vendors. BlackBerry earned the highest score in Strategy as well as Global Presence, and tied for the top ranking in Market Presence, which considers revenue, install base, and partners. In addition, BlackBerry received the highest possible score in 12 of the 27 criteria measured by Forrester, including Network Security, Future Vision, and Support.
Forrester described BlackBerry as follows:
“As other vendors have rushed to offer competitive alternatives to BlackBerry’s platform, the company has had to reinvent itself around the characteristics that made it a Leader previously – and its strong commitment to enterprise mobility and security has paid off.”
Forrester went on to note:
“Continued investments in collaboration applications and a strong vision that incorporates a strategy for Internet of Things management and automotive support have placed BlackBerry in a Leader position.”
We believe these rankings reflect BlackBerry’s continued transformation and leadership in enterprise mobility. Consider the following:
- BlackBerry remains the dominant mobile device management leader with more customers than its top three competitors combined – by a significant margin.
- BlackBerry customers include the following: All G7 governments, 16 of the G20 governments, 10 out of 10 of the largest global enterprises in each of the pharmaceutical, law firm and automotive industries.
- Since the EZ Pass migration program launched on March 31, 2014, more than 3.4 million BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 (BES10) client access licenses have been claimed by customers worldwide.
