SAIC Commits to BlackBerry

— May 01, 2014

Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC)—providing services and solutions in the technical, engineering and enterprise IT markets in the public and private sectors—is expanding its investment in BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 (BES10) for enterprise mobility management (EMM).

SAIC has upgraded its BlackBerry Enterprise Servers to BES10 in order to manage both its current fleet of BlackBerry 10 devices, as well as its devices running Android and iOS operating systems. BES10 will ensure the security in SAIC’s multi-operating system environment while streamlining operations for administrators with a single management console.

“Implementing BlackBerry’s BES10 server provides us with a single management point to support mobile device communications,” said Robert Fecteau, CIO of SAIC. “This helps reduce overhead costs and allows us to focus training and development on enhancing skills needed to fully support secure mobility operations within the SAIC enterprise.”

Android and iOS Too
Protecting both corporate and client data, in addition to deploying BlackBerry 10 smartphones for their highest security requirements, SAIC is also utilizing Secure Work Space for iOS and Android—a multi-platform containerization solution managed through BES10. This technology securely separates sensitive corporate data from personal content, making a Secure Work Space with the flexibility of a BYOD program, more manageable for mobile communications.

The multi-platform solution allows customers to manage BlackBerry, iOS and Android devices from a single, highly-secure platform. “BES10 gives customers the power to create a customized EMM environment that reflects the diverse security and flexibility needs across their entire workforce,” said John Sims, President of Global Enterprise Services at BlackBerry.
