BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) reported that Gartner, Inc., the major provider of research and analysis on the international information technology industry, has provided the firm the highest score for all use cases in its Critical Capabilities report. This is the second successive year when the company has been selected for this recognition.
There were as many as 15 Enterprise Mobility Management merchants assessed. Out of those vendors, BlackBerry’s Enterprise Mobility Suite fetched the highest score for different use cases, including high-security government grade, high-security commercial, shared devices, shared data, BYO and nonemployee.
Billy Ho, the EVP for Enterprise Products with BlackBerry, reported that they consider it is no coincidence that once again, the company has topped in Gartner’s Critical Capabilities report. The company practically advanced secure mobile communications and they have flexed their legendarily secure architecture to safeguard the enterprise deployment of linked IoT endpoints. They have been listening to and developing these solutions for large clients since before they were all naming it Unified Endpoint Management, or UEM.
High-security mobility management can be stated as a subset of the enterprise mobility management segment, which serves firms with stringent requirements. Gartner’s Critical Capabilities report provides guidance to IT buyers, particularly those in regulated industries like healthcare, energy, financial services and also to government agencies that seek strong security.
BlackBerry also scored a top place in Gartner’s June 2017 “Magic Quadrant”, again for Enterprise Mobility Management Suites. It even was rated best in two use cases in Critical Capabilities for Mobility Management, including unmanaged device support and regulated industries.
The company’s Enterprise Mobility Suite constitutes BlackBerry Dynamics, BlackBerry Workspaces, BlackBerry UEM and additional services to provide a comprehensive UEM solution with integrated connectivity and security for iOS, Android, macOS, BlackBerry 10 and Windows 10 devices.
In the last trading session, the stock price of BlackBerry declined 0.55% to close the day at $9.06.
