According to Forester, “BlackBerry shows particular strength in the security criteria for EFSS, with integrated rights management, watermarking for confidential items, and mobile protection. Flexible deployment options allow enterprises to adopt cloud (or not) at their own pace…Customers rate the overall file sharing capabilities, as well as the company’s professional services, highly.”
