Vodafone Germany is the first telecommunications provider in the world to offer its customers all five editions of the BlackBerry Enterprise Mobility Suite security solution with SIM-based billing.

With the BlackBerry Enterprise Mobility Suite, companies can securely manage all mobile communications – from managing mobile devices and apps, instant messaging, to secure access to corporate intranets on the go.

Customers can choose from the various software editions as required and what makes Vodafone so different is that, in addition to the usual user-based licensing, companies get a more cost-effective, device-based license; monthly via their mobile phone bill.

For all customers who opt for a Red Business + tariff (from S +) until 30 September 2017, the Starter license “Management Edition” is free of charge. The software application runs on all devices and operating systems: Android, iOS, MacOS, Windows and BlackBerry.

“With BlackBerry Enterprise Mobility Suite, we provide our customers with the highest level of security for their employees’ mobile communications at the same time “Said Alexander Saul, Managing Director of Vodafone Deutschland.
