A new strategic partnership was announced today, aimed at companies that heavily rely on smartphones for communication among their employees. Two tech giants – Microsoft and BlackBerry promise to make work phones more secure than ever with the help of a first-of-its-kind solution: BlackBerry Enterprise BRIDGE.
The solution includes BlackBerry’s expertise in mobility and security, along with Microsoft’s cloud and productivity products. The security technology is aimed at business customers like banks, healthcare providers, law firms, as well as central governments.
In an era when digital technology is driving rapid transformation, customers are looking for a trusted partner. Our customers choose Microsoft 365 for productivity and collaboration tools that deliver continuous innovation, and do so securely. Together with BlackBerry, we will take this to the next level and provide enterprises with a new standard for secure productivity, said Microsoft’s Judson Althoff.
BlackBerry Enterprise BRIDGE should allow customers to access Microsoft mobile apps (Android and iOS) from within BlackBerry Dynamics, including Excel, PowerPoint, and Word.
Last but not least, the tech giants announced that the BlackBerry Secure solutions like UEM Cloud, Workspaces, Dynamics and AtHoc, have been integrated with the Microsoft Azure cloud platform.
