BlackBerry partners with Microsoft for integrated mobility and security solution
BlackBerry and Microsoft have announced a partnership that will help businesses to use the two company’s greatest strengths together.
The integrated solution combines the expertise of BlackBerry in the areas of mobility and security with Microsoft’s cloud and productivity services.
BlackBerry Enterprise BRIDGE is the first partnership of its kind and offers a highly-secure method of navigating native Microsoft apps within BlackBerry Dynamics.
It could prove useful for the two companies’ joint customers, which include some of the biggest banks in the world, healthcare providers, law firms and governments.
These customers will now have a seamless experience of using Microsoft Office 365 files in BlackBerry Dynamics, making it easier to open, edit and save everything from Word to Excel and PowerPoint.
BlackBerry Enterprise BRIDGE works on any iOS and Android device, allowing users to experience rich file fidelity anywhere and at any time.
An additional benefit is the peace of mind the new solution offers to IT departments, as they can be assured that their data and privacy is secured to high standards.
These come in line with compliance, corporate and regulatory policies, ensuring the maximum protection.
Carl Wiese, president of global sales at BlackBerry, said: “BlackBerry has always led the market with new and innovative ways to protect corporate data on mobile devices.
“We saw a need for a hyper-secure way for our joint customers to use native Office 365 mobile apps. BlackBerry Enterprise BRIDGE addresses this need and is a great example of how BlackBerry and Microsoft continue to securely enable workforces to be highly productive in today’s connected world.”
The BlackBerry Secure and Microsoft Azure cloud platforms have now also been integrated, meaning that BlackBerry UEM Cloud, BlackBerry Workspaces, BlackBerry Dynamics and BlackBerry AtHoc are all available on Azure.
