“With BlackBerry Balance technology, we also offer our employees the opportunity to use two profiles on one device – a professional and a private one. While the professional site is controlled and protected by IT, the user receives individual user options in the private section. With this, private services and apps can be used without compromising company data,” Gorriz added.

Airbus Group chose BES10 and is upgrading its entire BlackBerry mobile fleet to BlackBerry 10 smartphones. This decision by Airbus was made after several months of testing and comparison with other offerings on the market.

“Our customers recognize the value that BlackBerry 10 solutions bring to meet the needs of an increasingly mobile workforce and the sensitive nature of data shared across terminals and platforms – requiring the best end-to-end security technology,” said John Sims, president, Global Enterprise Services at BlackBerry.
