StarLink has signed a distribution agreement with BlackBerry for Middle East and Africa. As per the terms of the agreement, StarLink will offer its reseller community BlackBerry Secure, which is a comprehensive platform of software and services.
Market demand for security is shifting from the network of computers to the network of endpoints. “These endpoints represent the Enterprise of Things (EoT), which is a collection of devices, computers, sensors, trackers, equipment and other connected “things” within the enterprise.” BlackBerry said it 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.
“With mobile endpoints becoming easy targets, organisations need to step up and adopt secure and comprehensive solutions to safeguard their digital assets,” said, Nidal Othman, managing director, StarLink. “BlackBerry’s secure and trusted enterprise software solutions and services are an invaluable addition to our distribution portfolio. It will strengthen our go-to-market strategy and enable us to deliver end-to-end secure communications and collaboration solutions that will help our channel partners grow their businesses.” He also added, “This year at Gitex 2018, we look forward to hosting BlackBerry alongside StarLink and facilitate our partners and customers with an opportunity to meet with the BlackBerry team and know more about their products and solutions.”
“We continue to invest in strategic partnerships with industry leaders, such as StarLink, that allow us to enhance our channel partner ecosystem,” said Florian Bienvenu, SVP EMEA, BlackBerry. “Through this partnership we aim to create growth for our partners in the MENA region while giving customers wider access to BlackBerry Secure, our leading suite of enterprise solutions with world-class support, helping organizations advance their mobility strategies.”
