Australian Transport Safety Bureau

We've rolled out the devices on a voluntary basis but almost every investigator at the Bureau has now enthusiastically adopted a BlackBerry 10 smartphone. Not having to bring laptops to investigation sites has been a real plus for the team, and we've been able to institute supportive policies like call reimbursements only by using the mobile device management capabilities of BES10.

Full Story


The Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) required a secure mobile device and backend system which would enable teams to efficiently and securely share critical imagery and text data live from crash and other investigation sites – often in very remote areas. The ATSB wanted to build upon their existing system, scaling up with a solution that incorporated both devices and best in network security. Flexibility was also important, as ATSB recognised the importance of a device that could be used by employees outside of work, without compromising on security.


The ATSB equipped nearly all of its employees with BlackBerry 10 smartphones, including BlackBerry Z10 and BlackBerry Z30 devices, operating on BES10.
