In the News: BlackBerry Establishes New Subsidiary to Better Serve the U.S. Government
Headquartered in Washington, D.C., BlackBerry Government Solutions is a new independent wholly-owned subsidiary that will accelerate BlackBerry’s Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) initiatives and deepen ties with U.S. federal agencies.
FedRAMP Authorized Endpoint Management
As new device types proliferate, how do you stay in control of your growing fleet of devices, while empowering personnel with secure access to workflows and data?
The BlackBerry® Government Mobility Suite is a cloud-based endpoint management solution, offering a single, integrated view of users, devices, applications and policies within your IT environment.
Customers can use the BlackBerry Government Mobility Suite to unify endpoints across all ownership models and operating systems, while securing sensitive data. It’s deployed in the Microsoft® Azure FedRAMP approved Government cloud as a multi-tenant, government-only community cloud deployment model.
Mobilize Secure Voice and Text
Communication on mobile devices can be vulnerable to hacking and eavesdropping. SecuSUITE protects against threats to local and national security by enabling secure unclassified and classified mobile communications on conventional mobile devices.
- Government-grade performance and security
- Supports iOS and Android, integrated with secure landlines
- End-to-end encryption
- Superb voice quality
Protect People and Operations
When an emergency strikes, responders need to communicate with other agencies seamlessly, without the need of any special equipment or expensive technology. BlackBerry® AtHoc is an emergency notification system that enables organizations, from individual units to MAJCOMs, to communicate and collaborate with greater effectiveness, authority and control in times of crisis. It is FedRAMP authorized at the Moderate level.
- Send mass emergency notifications
- Make critical safety decisions
- Communicate with personnel across all channels
- Share map-based situational awareness
Safeguard Mission-critical Systems
Defense and security applications and platforms face challenges unlike any other.
BlackBerry QNX Software Systems provide the most reliable and scalable RTOS, industry-leading multi-core processor support, a high availability framework and a comprehensive Eclipse-based tool chain to ensure the security of application software systems in mission-critical environments.
AtHoc Connect is helping us bridge a serious communications gap between people who are located physically close to each other in the same facility, but on different networks. The most important feature for us is security of communications, and the Connect network is certainly secure.
Systems Engineer, Pentagon Force Protection Agency
Recent hurricanes and other emergencies illustrated the need for a comprehensive alerting system. And to ensure compliance with Air Force Instructions 10-2501 (emergency management) and 10-218 (personnel accountability), we began searching for a single system that could meet the network alerting requirements. Products we’d used in the past took too long to operate, had scalability and security issues, and were too slow at getting the word out.
Colonel John Hayes,
CIO for AFRC
I have a single Emergency Manager that covers the entire garrison from Grafenwoehr to Garmisch. Anything we can do that allows other trusted agents to assist managing our administrative data input for our communication capability will allow [Kim] more time to focus on other aspects of our Protection Program.
