Challenge

G4S Argentina offers security services in sensitive environments, and as a result, their own standard for data access and handling of information is very high. The company needed a way to secure company data by keeping each user’s corporate data separate from their personal data. As a result of a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy at G4S Argentina, more and more smartphones of all kinds were requested to be added to the IT infrastructure and therefore had to be integrated by the IT department. The most important element for G4S Argentina was not the smartphone device model or operating system, but the ability to separate personal and work profiles.

Solution

G4S Argentina had already relied on BlackBerry as a strategic partner for mobile device management (MDM) with their existing mobile workforce. Looking at the challenges with increasing BYOD demand, as well as requiring a container based solution, the company decided to upgrade to BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 (BES10) to support BlackBerry, iOS and Android devices. BlackBerry Balance technology and Secure Workspace for iOS and Android ensure the separation of personal and work data. BlackBerry’s highest security standards, inherent to the BlackBerry platform, were a major driver in the decision to upgrade to BES10. 

Benefits

  • 70% increase in speed and efficiency of salesforce response times
