BlackBerry's WatchDox is more than just a software that prevents unauthorized access, it can also prevent unauthorized file sharing to torrent websites, which opens the opportunity for other large scale deals with companies needing to protect their intellectual property when transacting online.
The security capabilities of WatchDox is Federal Information Processing Standard [FIPS] 140-2 compliant and utilizes best-in-class AES 256-bit encryption for data-at-rest and data-in-transit, according to Gartner. Gartner recently endorsed WatchDox calling it a visionary in the space, which makes a lot of sense, because there are multiple use scenarios beyond the one that BlackBerry was singularly targeting.
Recently, critics have suggested that offering security to Android phones could turn out to be a negative for Blackberry given the fact that Android phones have 94% of the security risks on the market. There are material flaws with that logic. If Blackberry knows it is capable of enhancing security across multiple platforms, which it has been proven capable of doing, instead of running the risk of looking bad if Android continues to have 94% of the security risk on the market, Blackberry actually could end up looking great instead. If the enhanced security that Blackberry is capable of offering to Android phones significantly reduces the security risks that have plagued Android the software could actually be adopted on a mass market scale, then marketed and sold in conjunction with Smartphones around the world. Blackberry would in essence become integrated into 78% of the smart phones on the market... Google it.
So many insults in the last couple of weeks... but Mr. Chen has kept his people in line and the silence has been deafening.. I think the last comment made by Mr. Chen before the quiet time was".. we've got something big coming.." and a big smile. Maybe he knows something.
