Furthermore, the new BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 provides customers with management capabilities for Android and iOS devices from the same console.
Through BES10, companies can enjoy a highly scalable, flexible management solution that can support both corporate-owned and personal-owned devices, as well as mixed environments.
