BES 10 Hosted Service Now Available on the G-Cloud Programme

London, UK – December 5, 2013 – BlackBerry® (NASDAQ: BBRY; TSX: BB) today announced that BlackBerry® Enterprise Service 10 is now available as a hosted service under the fourth iteration of the UK Government’s G-Cloud Programme.

The G-Cloud Programme is a cross-Government initiative which focuses on easing the adoption of cloud-based ICT services across Government departments, local authorities and the wider public sector. This directory of preferred suppliers is designed to significantly streamline and accelerate the procurement and exchange of services between technology providers and Government customers.

This hosted BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 offering will be one of 7,000 services delivered by 800 suppliers, available on the G-Cloud Programme. BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 is the only cross-platform enterprise mobility management solution on the G-Cloud Programme that can manage BlackBerry, iOS® and Androidâ„¢ smartphones and tablets in accordance with the latest End User Device guidance from CESG, the UK Government’s National Technical Authority for Information Assurance.

In the UK, BlackBerry is the mobile solution of choice for every Cabinet department, the majority of central government and other public sector bodies including the Ministry of Defence. The availability of BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 on the G-Cloud Programme will allow the broader public sector to procure a solution that can securely manage their existing fleet of BlackBerry smartphones as well as iOS and Android devices, all easily managed from a single central console. Prospective customers will also be able to take advantage of a free 60 day trial of the new solution.

Alexandra Zagury, Managing Director, UK & Ireland at BlackBerry commented:

“The G-Cloud Programme reflects the changing needs of the public sector which increasingly must manage multiple device types and platforms. This hosted BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 solution perfectly meets this evolving need by providing a secure cross-platform solution that extends our renowned security and manageability credentials to iOS and Android devices. With its inclusion on the G-Cloud Programme, any public sector organisation can quickly benefit from BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 directly from us as a fully hosted and managed solution, with complete end-to-end support.”

The inclusion on the G-Cloud Programme follows the recent announcement of BlackBerry’s forthcoming cloud-based EMM service, which will enable IT managers to deploy, secure, and manage their employees’ mobile devices through a web-based admin console.[signoff predefined=”Enjoy this?” icon=”icon-users”][/signoff]
