‘We Are Very Much Alive’: More Desperation From BlackBerry
BlackBerry’s (NASDAQ:BBRY) new CEO John Chen has written a letter to BlackBerry’s enterprise customers, pointing out that the company is still alive and promising that customers’ investments in BlackBerry’s “infrastructure and solutions are secure,” contrary to what the press might be saying and what BlackBerry’s competitors might want people to think. The letter can be read on BlackBerry’s blog.
Chen said that BlackBerry’s competitors have been trying to entice customers to turn off their BlackBerry Enterprise Server by peddling false information about the company’s supposed upcoming demise. In the letter, Chen makes it clear to BlackBerry’s enterprise customers that the company still manages devices made by other companies and provides the most secure enterprise mobility services of any other company.
“Our competitors want you to think that BES only manages BlackBerry devices, and that we are somehow more expensive than other MDMs. This is false. We understand the realities of the enterprise mobility market better than anyone, and we’re in the game for the long term. We’ve been investing in enterprise mobility management — for any device — and thanks to customers like you, we’re doing very well,” Chen says in the letter.
