BlackBerry CEO: 'I Believe We Can Succeed' | Mobile Device Management content from MSPmentor

Not so sure about the claim that only BB has a DOD ATO... 


BlackBerry (BBRY) interim CEO John Chen last week released another open letter to assure enterprise customers that the company is "strong financially, technologically savvy and is well-positioned for the future." He failed, again, to mention how BlackBerry will work with channel partners in 2014.

In his letter, Chen continued to stress the importance of surrounding himself with "a talented team of industry leaders," noting that he will add to his "leadership team with those who have the skills and passion to get BlackBerry back on the path to profitability."

Chen said his team needed to move to a new operating unit structure to place more emphasis on  what he called core business drivers. He then went on the offensive, calling out BlackBerry's competitors in the mobile device management (MDM) space.

"With a global enterprise customer base exceeding 80,000, we have three times the number of customers compared to Good,AirWatch and MobileIron combined," he said. "This makes BlackBerry the leader in mobile device management."

Chen said BlackBerry's customers include those who have the most stringent security needs.

"For governments, BlackBerry cannot just be replaced. We are the only MDM provider to obtain Authority to Operate on U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) networks," he said. "This means the DoD is allowed to use only BlackBerry. Across the globe, seven out of seven of the G7 governments are also BlackBerry customers."
