“Mobile access is an increasingly essential requirement of doing business and this is especially prevalent in smaller businesses,” said Mike Lazaridis, President and Co-CEO at RIM. “BlackBerry Enterprise Server is renowned for helping companies become more productive and responsive, while providing industry-leading security, functionality, manageability, and back-end integration. With BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express, we’re now making it easier than ever for new customers to derive the full benefits of the BlackBerry solution.”
