HATFIELD, England, March 27, 2013
HATFIELD, England, March 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
EE, the UK's most advanced digital communications company, will be the first
UK mobile network to support BlackBerry® Enterprise Service 10, BlackBerry's
unique end-to-end multi-platform enterprise mobility management solution.
BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 will be available to EE's corporate and
public sector business customers from 2 April 2013.
BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 brings together industry-leading BlackBerry
security with mobile device and application management that extends across
BlackBerry 10 smartphones and BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablets. It also provides
mobile device management for devices running iOS® and Android™.
One of the key features of BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 is BlackBerry®
Balance™ technology, which offers customers with a BlackBerry 10 smartphone a
'Personal' and a 'Work' profile on the same device. With these dual profiles,
work applications and data are kept separate and secure from personal content,
meaning that the IT department can maintain maximum security, while the
employee is able to keep their personal content completely private.
Pricing starts at £15* per month for 1GB of mobile data. All BlackBerry
Enterprise Service 10 price plans include user licences, server software and
dedicated BlackBerry support from EE at no extra cost. 4GEE price plans are
available for an additional £3 per month.
Alongside the largest range of 4G mobile devices in the UK , EE now provides
superfast 4G coverage in 37 towns and cities nationwide. EE's 4G network
currently covers more than 45% of the UK population and is forecast to
increase to more than 55% by summer, as the network grows to cover more than
65 towns and cities. To add to this, EE also has more network capacity than
any other UK operator through its 4G spectrum holdings to take care of the
significant future demands of enterprise data.
Max Taylor, Director of Business, EE, said: "Now businesses can get
BlackBerry's industry-leading security and mobility management solution on the
UK's best and fastest network. Alongside our Secure Mobility management
software, the introduction of BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 means we are
the only network operator to offer enterprise-grade security across all mobile
operating systems, covering 3G and 4G devices."
Rob Orr, Managing Director UK & Ireland, BlackBerry, said: "BlackBerry
Enterprise Service 10 builds on our decade long leadership in the mobile
enterprise space with a unique end-to-end, multi-platform enterprise mobility
management solution. Our BlackBerryZ10 customers on EE can already take
advantage of the nation's fastest mobile network, and we're delighted that the
network's enterprise customers will now be able to avail of a mobile
enterprise solution that blends unrivalled security with maximum usability."
