Canadian-based multinational wireless telecommunications software and mobile hardware company Blackberry has recently announced the launch of a cloud-enabled mobile security platform for "Enterprise of Things."
Pointing to the fact that the Enterprise of Things was very real and highlighting that this network of intelligent connections and endpoints helped enterprises in moving products from sketch to scale, the company had seen a great need for securing the process from data thefts and hacker disruption.
So as to manage today's enterprise of things, by taking a mobile native approach, BlackBerry is providing a cloud-enabled security platform that will comprehensively enable and manage security, mobility and communications between hardware devices, programs, mobile apps and the internet of things.

This platform is also the culmination of the integration of the company's prior acquisitions of key technologies such as Good Technology, WatchDox, AtHoc, and Encription.
John Chen, Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, BlackBerry said in a statement that the businesses should be able to confidentially and reliably transmit sensitive data between endpoints to keep people, information, and goods safe.
He added that BlackBerry was uniquely qualified to address this emerging market because of the company's deep experience, industry leadership and ongoing product innovation that was capable of addressing future business needs.
On the other hand, BlackBerry's solution has been dubbed BlackBerry Secure and is grounded in the company's mobile software security platform. Significantly, the platform will help companies manage and secure their mobile devices and connected things while securing communications for all messaging and file types.
Chen also highlighted that the enterprises' investments would be protected because the foundational platform was not only compatible with the company's current products and third-party software like Microsoft Office 365, but it was also 'future-proofed' to address upcoming capabilities such as messaging and analytics.

Additionally, BlackBerry has plans to expand the platform's features, market segments it supports, and the company's entire partner ecosystem.
On the bright side, now with the launch of this platform, it might ultimately open up new markets for BlackBerry where multiple endpoint mobile security management and applications are critical. However, while it is still fresh, we are yet to see what role it will take in the days to come and how successful the platform will be.
