BlackBerry and Adobe Partner to Deliver Secure Forms with Electronic Signatures on Mobile
WATERLOO, CANADA – March 23, 2023 – BlackBerry Limited (NYSE: BB; TSX: BB) and Adobe (Nasdaq: ADBE) today announced that they have partnered to deliver a secure forms solution for mobile. The software solution, which combines BlackBerry® UEM and Adobe Experience Manager Forms, is designed for popular mobile device platforms, and meets the rigorous security standards required by regulated industries. Furthermore, the partnership agreement allows BlackBerry to resell Adobe Experience Manager Forms software.
Prior to the partnership between BlackBerry and Adobe, users have been challenged in completing and approving documents away from their desktops, limiting their mission-critical mobility, and productivity. In this new solution, BlackBerry UEM manages public key infrastructure (PKI) certificates to secure the connection to Adobe Experience Manager, allowing users to complete and electronically sign documents from anywhere, on their employer-issued or BYO mobile devices, and without a VPN.
“BlackBerry and Adobe both have a long-standing and trusted reputation for enabling the digital transformation of organizations around the world,” said Neelam Sandhu, SVP Sustainability & Chief Elite Customer Success Officer. “BlackBerry is delighted to partner with Adobe to solve this imperative security and productivity need for regulated industries. BlackBerry UEM together with Adobe Experience Manager will enable government, financial services, healthcare, legal, and other organizations, to modernize and optimize their operations while maintaining the highest levels of security, protecting national security.”
“Electronic workflows should not be limited to desktop environments,” said John Landwehr, Vice President and Chief Technology Officer for Public Sector at Adobe. “Business processes cannot be delayed by lack of mobile support, for securely completing and signing electronic documents. The partnership between BlackBerry and Adobe enhances operational processing and workforce efficiency for hiring and onboarding, procurement of goods and services, medical readiness, maintenance, and logistics, and so many more use cases, that require signed approvals at any time, on any device.”
This new solution is available now for customers using BlackBerry UEM and BlackBerry Adobe Experience Manager Forms.
BlackBerry UEM is used by security and productivity conscious organizations around the world and has the highest number of government security certifications in the industry, across unclassified and classified requirements. Announced earlier this year, BlackBerry UEM is the only UEM solution to be recognized, by customers, in the top right quadrant of Gartner’s 2023 Gartner Peer Insights ‘Voice of the Customer’: UEM Tools report.
