BlackBerry teams with Microsoft to secure Office apps on mobile devices

BlackBerry teams with Microsoft to secure Office apps on mobile devices”

A new partnership aims to pair Microsoft's cloud and productivity tools with BlackBerry's security software for customers that require extra levels of privacy, above and beyond that of the normal consumer or enterprise. This allows users to share their documents while the data encryption and document fidelity are preserved, and common data leakage policies are applied.

In a joint statement, the two companies revealed that they are teaming up to provide enterprises with a new service created to protect corporate data on mobile devices. "BlackBerry Enterprise "BRIDGE" addresses this and is an example of how BlackBerry and Microsoft continue to securely enable workforces to be highly productive in connected world", Carl Wiese, President of Global Sales at BlackBerry, said in a statement late Monday. The security technology is aimed at business customers like banks, healthcare providers, law firms, as well as central governments.

Speaking of BlackBerry, while the company no longer makes their own hardware, they have not forgotten about software because they have announced that they will be teaming up with Microsoft in an effort to help make work phones more secure. Specifically, BlackBerry UEM Cloud, BlackBerry Workspaces, BlackBerry Dynamics, and BlackBerry AtHoc are now available on Azure.

This isn't the first collaboration between the two tech companies. Based in Waterloo, Ontario, the company was founded in 1984 and operates in North America, Europe, Asia, Australia, Middle East, Latin America and Africa.

BlackBerry and related trademarks, names and logos are the property of BlackBerry Limited and are registered and/or used in the US and countries around the world. If you're not a BlackBerry or Microsoft fan, there's always G Suite and other GOogle service that yo can use without having to struggle or break a sweat.
