"The partnership will help BlackBerry significantly expand the channel and distribution network for our enterprise software products and services in India," Bimal Das, Joint President, Enterprise Products Distribution Business, HCL Infosystems, said.

Apart from sales support, businesses will also have access to HCL Infosystems' IT deployment support and integration capabilities that will help them migrate seamlessly or consolidate their Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) investments, he added.

In addition to selling and supporting BlackBerry's enterprise software portfolio, HCL Infosystems will also provide value-added services such as technical support and consulting.

BlackBerry is betting big on enterprise solutions as it has been struggling in the highly-competitive smartphone market globally.
"India is a priority market for BlackBerry's enterprise software business, and we are focused on delivering the best possible experience to our business customers in this market," BlackBerry India MD Narendra Nayak said.
The single comprehensive EMM management experience allows administrators to securely manage any mobile deployment at the device, app and content layer from one secure platform, he said.
BlackBerry has over 70 security certifications globally. The platform supports multiple operating systems like iOS, Android, including Android for Work and Samsung KNOX, BlackBerry, Windows and Mac OS from a single console.
