BlackBerry® announced their BlackBerry® Enterprise Service 10 and BlackBerry 10 smartphones have been the first to be approved by NATO for classified communications up to the level of “Restricted”. The certification allows agencies in NATO countries in all 28 member states across North America and Europe to use BlackBerry® 10 smartphones in the office or in the field.
“We built the new BlackBerry 10 platform from the ground up with the highest security needs of our government and enterprise customers in mind,” said Scott Totzke, Senior Vice President of Security at BlackBerry. “The fact that BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 and BlackBerry 10 smartphones have been approved for classified communications just months after debut, is testament to the thoroughness of its design and our commitment to our defense and government customers.”
Since launching earlier this year, more than 25,000 BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 commercial and test servers have been installed globally, reflecting the clear need by companies to have a cross-platform Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) solution that delivers a strong level of security, control and management at the device and app level.
