The new BlackBerry executive says that because KNOX works only on certain Samsung models, it is not an option for those work places where employees are allowed to bring their own devices. "However, there are a significant number of enterprises where BYOD is the way forward. KNOX has no flexibility for the BYOD trend," says Sims, who sounds here like he is grasping at straws.
Sims writes that Samsung is still testing the security of its enterprise platform and that nothing is more secure than a BlackBerry smartphone managed by BES. He proudly points out that BlackBerry is the only mobility solution and handset manufacturer to have received the DoD's "Authority to Operate" certification. According to the executive, BlackBerry owns 61% of the large enterprise mobile device management market, and will continue to aim for the top.
Currently, BES has more than 80,000 business and government agencies as customers, and can manage BlackBerry, iOS and Android devices. As confirmed by BlackBerry CEO John Chen, BES will soon support Windows Phone.
