BlackBerry UEM and Okta integration will enable enterprise security and workforce productivity from anywhere

WATERLOO, ONTARIO – November 2, 2021 – BlackBerry Limited (NYSE: BB; TSX: BB) announced today a technology integration between Okta, Inc.’s (NASDAQ:OKTA) and BlackBerry Spark® unified endpoint management (UEM).
