BlackBerry announced Tuesday that Tech Data Corp. will now offer BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10, BlackBerry's Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) solution, through its TDMobility business unit to its channel partners in the United States.
The offering expands upon a long standing relationship between the two companies. Tech Data has distributed BlackBerry products and technical support services since 2009.
BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 is a consolidation of BlackBerry's EMM product portfolio, which includes mobile device, security, infrastructure and applications management. Secure Work Space for iOS and Android is managed through BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 and provides a secure infrastructure for data at rest and data in transit to iOS and Android devices.
"We've talked to many IT Administrators and there is a common theme that emerges — they all count on the security, user experience and total cost of ownership that comes with BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10," said Heather Murray, director, TDMobility at Tech Data. "Now that BlackBerry is embracing multiplatform environments by extending the same security to iOS and Android devices, this product offering is attractive to our channel of solution providers."
To date, more than 25,000 BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 commercial and test servers have been installed globally.
