Clyde & Co started as a small law firm specializing in aviation and has grown very rapidly in the past few years. The firm needed an enterprise mobility management (EMM) solution that could integrate with its current system, while enabling Clyde & Co to deliver an even better user experience to employees. Staff members at Clyde & Co rely heavily on business applications to perform their jobs. Security was another major consideration for Clyde & Co’s EMM solution.
A long-time customer, Clyde & Co had previously selected BlackBerry® Enterprise Server 5 (BES5) for its mobility solution and deployed 1,400 BlackBerry® OS7 devices throughout the company. This deployment met several of the needs of the firm, including giving employees access to key business applications, such as Microsoft Office Communicator, mobile access to the document management system, digital dictation and disaster recovery software. When it came time for an upgrade, Clyde & Co opted to remain on the BlackBerry platform and selected BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 (BES10) and BlackBerry 10 devices because mobile security continues to be of utmost importance to the company.
