BlackBerry quietly launches BES as a cloud service.
ZDNet recently learned that BlackBerry has quietly launched BES 10.1 as a service, as part of the launch of the latest update to the BlackBerry Enterprise Service. The company hasn't broadcast a press release about this new development but has begun to talk openly about it.
"We are making BES 10.1 available as a cloud service and have several companies in trial," said Pete Devenyi, BlackBerry's SVP of Enterprise Software.
As we reported earlier, BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10.1 is expected to give the company a boost as it rises to meet the demand for solutions to manage iOS and Android devices in a BYOD environment.
