Hannover 96 Deploys BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 to Secure Multi-Platform Environment
May 16, 2014
DUSSELDORF, GERMANY and WATERLOO, CANADA – May 16, 2014 – BlackBerry Limited (NASDAQ: BBRY; TSX: BB), a world leader in mobile communications, today announced that Hannover 96, a German football club and marketing company, has migrated to BlackBerry® Enterprise Service 10 (BES10) to bring secure enterprise mobility and end-user flexibility to the workplace.

Hannover 96 deployed BlackBerry’s enterprise mobility management (EMM) solution BES10 to secure highly confidential information, such as details of new players, contracts, schedules and football training plans, across different platforms, including BlackBerry, iOS® and Android™ devices .

“BES10 is so valuable to our business because it gives us the perfect balance between flexibility and security,” said Nek Capric, Head of Marketing Sales at Hannover 96. “For example, our online team needs access to multiple devices such as iPhones and Android to test the design and layout of Web content. With BES10 in place, we can keep these functions of our business running smoothly without having to worry about the security implications for the business.”

“Data security is key to business success and our mobile device strategy,” continued Capric. “BlackBerry has really helped us implement an effective Corporate Owned, Personally Enabled (COPE) strategy and given us the confidence to know that if a device is lost or stolen, we can quickly wipe confidential data before it gets into the wrong hands. We are now looking at integrating additional devices such as tablets.”

Markus C. Mueller, Regional Managing Director Europe at BlackBerry said: “BES 10 provides Hannover 96 with the flexibility to embrace multi-platform device management without sacrificing security. Our enterprise customers in Europe recognize the unique value that BES 10 brings in fulfilling their productivity, communication and collaboration needs with its industry-leading security and cost efficiency.”

To date, customers have installed nearly 33,000 BES10 commercial and test servers around the world. In Germany, more than 50 percent of DAX companies have ordered, downloaded and/or are testing BES10.

    Great to see the licenses continue to roll in at these numbers. And it’s worth remembering that there are still legacy BES 5 deployments out there that won’t have adopted yet as BES 10 cannot manage legacy BlackBerry devices. Companies that don’t want to run two BES systems concurrently will be waiting for the rollout of BES 12 which adds legacy and WP support. I think it’s nothing but welcome growth for BlackBerry in this area.

      I believe they do have the option however to run BES5 as a virtual server on the same box as BES10.

    Oh yes, forgot about that. I suppose, but my experiences with corporate are they’ll take the path of least resistance and wait for the easier to use BES 12. I won’t name any names, but I know of a few that I’ve worked with that would likely choose this route. ;)

    It will be a win for BlackBerry to get a large percentage of those organizations still using BES 5 for BBOS devices to migrate to BES 12. Also being able to manage and provide security for multiple platforms helps as well.
