BlackBerry BES10 powers European software firm DATEV

BlackBerry announced that DATEV, a European software company, has selected BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 (BES10) as its Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) solution.

DATEV, which provides IT services to audit and law firms, has also started the roll out of more than 1,000 BlackBerry 10 smartphones.

Last week, BlackBerry said several global companies have started adopting BES10 platform in India and abroad.

Earlier, there were media reports suggesting that BlackBerry is losing market share to both Apple and Samsung in the enterprise space as well.


Wolfgang Fischer, group leader ICT systems and mobile at DATEV, said: “With BlackBerry 10 smartphones and BES10, we have the best solution in terms of usability, security and cost efficiency. Thanks to BlackBerry, our staff can access internal resources and other shared information on the go, without us having to worry about data loss.”

BES10 provides DATEV a complete solution that allows employees to securely access corporate data from their smartphones. In addition, BlackBerry 10 smartphones’ BlackBerry Balance technology separates and secures corporate data from personal e-mail, apps and documents, eliminating the risk of inadvertent data leakage.

“Customers recognize the value that BES10 brings to their mobility needs with its industry-leading security, usability and cost efficiency. For DATEV, the combination of BlackBerry 10 smartphones and BES10 gives them the ideal combination for a flexible mobile computing environment that meets both corporate and end user requirements,” said Markus C. Muller, managing director for Germany at BlackBerry.
