At Mobile World Congress 2010, Research In Motion (RIM) was awarded the Global Mobile Award for Best Mobile Enterprise Product or Service for BlackBerry Enterprise Server v5. Judged by an independent industry panel, BlackBerry Enterprise Server v5 was recognised as the most innovative mobile tool to help organizations “work smarter and do business better on the move.”
BlackBerry Enterprise Server is RIM’s secure, push-based server software for business mobility. With BlackBerry Enterprise Server, IT managers can easily control and manage their organisation’s mobile devices. This includes the ability to control over 450 configurable policies, such as setting passwords, deploying or disabling mobile applications and remotely wiping lost or stolen devices. BlackBerry Enterprise Server v5 redefines power and flexibility for IT administrators and provides a secure, centrally managed link between BlackBerry smartphones and enterprise systems, applications, corporate phone environments (with BlackBerry Mobile Voice System) and wireless networks thanks to end-to-end AES 256-bit encryption.
The award comes on the day that RIM launched BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express, which is a free server solution that will enable small businesses to wirelessly and securely synchronise BlackBerry smartphones with Microsoft Exchange or Microsoft Windows Small Business Server.
