Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Access to the emails on the go was most valuable. Having access to your emails in a secure way is one of the most important features of this solution. Blackberry ensures data security, and as a user, I can use it while on roaming or wherever I am.""We are able to separate personal information and in the event of e breach, we are able to turn off access and/or delete this information.""Cylance, their newest antivirus product, is the most valuable feature for us so far.""Having access to our internet was extremely beneficial. We don't have that functionality now that we have switched to Microsoft Intune. It was definitely better with Blackberry.""The containerization of the workspace is what we have found to be the most valuable."

"It's very easy to just keep adding devices as needed.""The solution is simple.""I have found the location analytics feature that is built into the APs to be the most valuable. It allows you to compare data and to single out individuals who are repeatedly coming into your store. We can observe different trends. This is what separates it from a lot of the other solutions.""It’s helped us manage our endpoints.""The cloud manager is user-friendly, and I can manage everything from one dashboard.""The UI is easy to learn.""The most significant benefit is that the deployment is quick and painless. You don't need a specialized IT department to implement and scale the network. It's easy to maintain, too. It only requires one or two network administrators.""Initial setup was easy."

Cons
"The initial installation could be simplified.""The installations on the device could be simpler. It is a good solution, and all the features are there. So, there isn't a lot to improve. I'm sure they already have their thought process on how to improve it.""The pain points for us would be the activation.""The interface could be improved.""We cannot integrate BlackBerry Edit from BlackBerry Enterprise. BlackBerry Edit has issues when we are editing any document. We have other internal applications that we can use for documents, but we cannot edit into BlackBerry Edit. There's room for improvement with editing documents."

"There are problems with the connection on the client side, and the app that was deployed could be better.""The price of the solution could be reduced.""The maintenance is average.""The cost of installing this solution can be more expensive depending on who is doing the installation. Cisco is very expensive, and I'd like to see a reduction in cost.""Linux compatibility needs improvement.""Cisco's authorized scripting can be complicated. For example, we sometimes enter the wrong code using this script, and then we had to dictate to find the problem.""System's compatibility with Google Chrome could be improved.""They need to allocate more energy in terms of their offering to devices that are not Apple devices."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "We currently pay by the year, but the licenses are calculated on a monthly basis."
  • "The licensing costs are paid on a yearly basis because we just renewed the license. If you have some big issue, they will also charge you."
  • "It was on a yearly support contract, and the licenses were perpetual. There was also the implementation cost and the support cost for the integrator."
  • "We are paying $200 annually. You also need to have a hardware server or a license for the server so there could be some additional fees added on to that."
  • "For the number of licenses, I believe it was approximately $500,000 per year, or for three years."
