We’re proud to be named a Leader for a consecutive year in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Unified Endpoint Management Software 2021 Vendor Assessment (Doc # US46957820, January 2021). The IDC MarketScape report analyzed the UEM market holistically and highlighted BlackBerry’s strength in endpoint management and security, data security and containerization and broad partnerships and integrations.
The IDC MarketScape recognized BlackBerry Spark® Suite as our dual security/management strategy (UEM and UES), allowing us to extend our leadership in endpoint management to endpoint security. Built on AI, the IDC MarketScape assessment noted that “the company has an extensive endpoint management/security technology portfolio along with BlackBerry® Protect Mobile (for mobile threat management) and BlackBerry® Persona for user behavior analytics and continuous authentication.”
The report highlighted notable strengths for BlackBerry® UEM which include:
- Support for the four most widely used device OS’s (Windows 10, iOS, Android and macOS) while extending OEM standards and deployment mobile frameworks.
- Advanced feature support for Windows 10 device management, app delivery, and policy enforcement.
- Support for remote work and BYOD as strong points for the company.
- BlackBerry’s broad set of security/industry compliance certifications (FedRAMP, FIPS 140-2, NIAP, Common Criteria EAL 4+) that underscore the company’s security pedigree for the federal sector and regulated industries.
In addition, the IDC MarketScape acknowledged that "BlackBerry has among the broadest partnering and integration lineup of mobile operators worldwide among any UEM vendor. Major carriers in every region support and resell BlackBerry Spark UEM and other solutions, making BlackBerry an attractive choice for both enterprises and SMBs.”
