The 2019 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Unified Endpoint Management has once again recognised BlackBerry as a Leader in the UEM vendor market. It is a position we’ve been acknowledged for four years running, dating back to the Magic Quadrant Enterprise Mobility Management Suites in 2016 and 2017.
The Magic Quadrant evaluates vendors on their ability to execute and completeness of vision, which BlackBerry has consistently shown increases in for every consecutive year, since 2016.
Billy Ho, Executive Vice President, Enterprise Products and Value Added Solutions, for BlackBerry said,
We’re thrilled once again to be recognised by Gartner for our acknowledged work in the UEM field. While we remained stable in some areas and some of the improvements we’ve made are moderate, what can’t be ignored is our innovation and growth in this field – and our commitment to the many customers and industries that rely on us.
BlackBerry’s unique approach to UEM leverages machine learning and predictive analytics to set a new standard for a zero trust environment – bringing a new level of sophistication to all industries where security is essential. As a result, BlackBerry’s UEM solutions have been adopted by leaders in some of the most stringent, highly regulated industries, including financial services, government, energy and healthcare.
BlackBerry Intelligent Security is the newest offering from BlackBerry, which adds a layer of adaptive security to an organisation’s existing UEM or UEM Cloud domain without introducing an additional software footprint. It is the first cloud-based solution that leverages the power of adaptive security, continuous authentication and artificial intelligence (AI) to enhance mobile endpoint security.
This allows IT teams to dynamically adapt the security requirements and functionality of enterprise devices and apps to each user’s real-world behaviour and risk score – a score which is meticulously determined through a next-generation combination of AI and spatial data.
“The Internet of Things fuels organisational transformation, but to be successful, organisations need market leading capabilities to manage and secure their IoT infrastructures,” said Mark Wilson, Chief Marketing Officer at BlackBerry.
“BlackBerry UEM securely enables the IoT, leveraging AI to deliver complete endpoint and policy control for an organisation’s growing portfolio of devices and apps. Our customers can execute with confidence knowing they have secured endpoints and devices, protected their data, and achieved compliance.”
