Advancements in mobile technology have created a hyperconnected workforce where highly-sensitive information and data are shared both inside and outside organizational frameworks. As this digitization occurs, it is imperative users are given solutions that prioritize flexibility and security for their communication needs. The latest updates to BlackBerry Enterprise Mobility Suite will help to securely connect both business and consumer applications, allowing employees to instantly collaborate with peers and customers for improved productivity and competitive success.

"IT leaders are being asked to secure new endpoints even as their users share increasing amounts of critical information, which is why many organizations feel they have to choose solutions that prioritize security over productivity," said Frank Cotter, SVP of Enterprise Solutions, BlackBerry. "BlackBerry Enterprise Mobility Suite underscores our commitment to protecting IoT devices from evolving cybersecurity threats and creating new workflows that increase productivity at every turn."

New features and capabilities of the BlackBerry Enterprise Mobility Suite – aimed at extending the modern desktop and creating seamless workflows and content sharing – include:
