BlackBerry Repeats as a Leader in Gartner 2017 EMM Magic Quadrant
The BlackBerry Secure story keeps getting better. For the second year in a row, BlackBerry was named a Leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Mobility Management Suites. We were one of four EMM vendors to be positioned in the Leader’s Quadrant this year, moving higher in execution and farther in completeness. Download here. or read on.
At BlackBerry, we recognized a while ago that MDM and EMM were not enough for today’s enterprises. Organizations are grappling with securing, managing, and controlling smartphones, PCs, and the coming flood of smart IoT-enabled devices. Our vision is to offer a Unified Endpoint Management platform that lets companies secure and manage all of these devices – plus the associated apps, files and content that reside on them.
So we executed and invested on that vision building and integrating the best technology into an overarching platform that we today call the BlackBerry Enterprise Mobility Suite. This includes our core multi-OS management platform, BlackBerry UEM, as well as a whole lot more: the BlackBerry Work family of productivity apps, the Workspaces document control solution, the BlackBerry Dynamics platform, and more.
Our strategy is being recognized by experts. By 2016, Gartner not only positioned us a Leader in the EMM Magic Quadrant, but we also achieved the highest score in three use cases 1 in the 2016 Critical Capabilities for EMM Suites report. as well the highest score in six out of six use cases 2 in the Critical Capabilities for High-Security Mobility Management report .
We believe our improved positioning not only mirrors our successful transition to a business software provider from a device maker, it also validates our strategy of focusing on securing, managing and connecting the Enterprise of Things by offering the most cutting-edge, comprehensive platform around.
