StarLink expands distribution portfolio with BlackBerry
StarLink announced it has signed a
distribution agreement with BlackBerry
for Middle East and Africa. Under the
agreement, StarLink will offer its reseller
community an integrated software platform
that addresses the entire enterprise with an
unparalleled standard of security.
Market demand for security is shifting
from the network of computers to the
network of endpoints. These endpoints
represent the Enterprise of Things, which
is a collection of devices, computers,
sensors, trackers, equipment and other
connected things within the enterprise.
BlackBerry is addressing EoT with its
BlackBerry Secure platform, which is
a comprehensive suite of software and
services that helps companies manage and
secure their devices and connected things,
as well as communications for all messaging
and file types.
The BlackBerry Enterprise Partner
Programme is designed to help partners
navigate the ever-changing mobile
business environment through secure
mobile business solutions for their people,
processes and data. It helps partners gain
new competencies and capabilities that will
enable them to meet and exceed market
demand, by ensuring partners are well
equipped to successfully design, architect,
implement and support BlackBerry solutions.
