This partnership enables du to offer a variety of BlackBerry enterprise software solutions and services to customers, including BlackBerry AtHoc, a Networked Crisis Communications platform, built to empower cities, organisations and people to respond quickly and efficiently in times of crisis, reducing the risks in case of danger.
“We are thrilled to be working with such an established partner in the UAE and are confident that by leveraging BlackBerry’s leading portfolio of enterprise software solutions and services, du will be well placed to deliver the best possible experience to business customers within their market,” said Richard McLeod, Global VP, Enterprise Software Channels, BlackBerry.
"We share their vision of making both cities and the world a safer place for people and organisations and by integrating AtHoc, du will make it easier than ever before for their customers to communicate and collaborate in times of crisis.”
BlackBerry AtHoc is being showcased in du’s booth (ZF10) at Gitex 2017 at the Safe City dedicated demo area.
Additionally, this partnership enables du to offer a variety of BlackBerry enterprise software solutions and services to customers, such as Enterprise Mobility Management through BlackBerry UEM for iOS, Android, Windows 10 and MacOS, to grow and mobilise their business securely. Customers will also benefit from BlackBerry Workspaces, a secure file sharing solution that enables users to securely share, edit and control their files on every device  due to embedded digital rights management protection in the files.
