Beuningen City Council is responsible for managing projects, improving infrastructure, controlling finances and meeting the needs of the community. Council workers must be able to reliably communicate with each other, regardless of their location. The City Council needed a robust mobile solution that would support constant communication across a range of corporate-owned devices, providing employees with the tools to be productive and the Council with government-grade security to meet regulations.
As an existing BlackBerry® Enterprise Server 5 (BES5) user, Beuningen City Council valued the high level of security and control BlackBerry provided. The Council’s IT department began exploring solutions that would support a multi-device corporate owned, personally enabled (COPE) mobile strategy. Upgrading to BES10 was a straightforward process for the Council. Using BlackBerry Balance technology enables councilors to attend to their personal lives while putting in long hours at the office. For those Council members using iPads, the Secure Work Space container, which has Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) certification, enables the Council’s IT team to configure, secure and wipe sensitive data should devices be lost or stolen. Data Leakage Prevention (DLP) also ensures work information cannot be shared outside the Secure Work Space.
