Smartphone vendor BlackBerry announced its mobility deal with PSA Peugeot Citroen to deploy 10,000 BlackBerry Z10 smartphones in France and Spain.
As part of the mobility deal, the second largest car manufacturer in Europe will also be migrating to BlackBerry’s Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) solution – BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 (BES10).
Eric Marchand, head of Telecom at PSA Peugeot Citroen, said BES10 enables the company to ensure confidentiality of information. In addition, Peugeot’s employees can enjoy the best experience for personal as well as professional use.
Herve Liboureau, managing director for Western Europe and Central Europe at BlackBerry, said the BES10 was selected for its security, simplified integration with existing IT systems, and numerous enterprise applications.
To date, customers have installed nearly 30,000 BES10 commercial and test servers around the world. In France, more than 60 percent of the CAC 40 companies (the 40 companies with the most significant values among the 100 highest market caps on the Paris Bourse) have ordered, downloaded or installed BES10.
