Data Security That’s Ahead of the Competition

What makes BlackBerry Workspaces different from competitive Enterprise File Sync and Share (EFSS) solutions?

Security travels with your files wherever they go, controlling access even after they leave your firewall. Files are protected by AES-certified 256-bit encryption at all times.

Workspaces apps are available for Windows®, macOS, Android™, iOS and HTML5 browsers. It’s the only product that enforces DRM on iOS and Android.

Workspaces offers unified access and control for all your existing data stores—there’s no need to migrate your files.

Workspaces provides complete activity logs to meet security and privacy compliance and reporting requirements.

Create collaborative workspaces and manage access and permissions by group and individual. View-only mode lets users annotate and comment on files within a secure HTML5 browser app.

Rapid Ransomware Recovery

Ransomware is malware that attacks a user’s personal device, most often because he or she opens a corrupted email attachment or clicks a corrupted link. Enterprise file synchronization and sharing (EFSS) systems have the potential to make a ransomware attack worse, by automatically syncing and sharing affected files with other users.

How does Workspaces address the problem?

Unlike other EFSS solutions, Workspaces puts effective recovery tools in the hands of the system administrator. It helps to contain and limit the damage of ransomware attacks by allowing the admin to freeze affected user accounts and selectively target and address infected files. Granular controls allow administrators to roll back impacted users, files and folders to pre-attack versions, so organizations can eliminate loss of productivity caused by system-wide rollback and recovery mechanisms.

Success Stories

Melanoma Institute Australia chose BlackBerry as its technology provider to take us to the next level in patient security. We were looking for a solution that allowed for the secure transfer of data between medical professionals, patients, and researchers without changing how they did business. That’s what we found in BlackBerry Workspaces.

Matthew Browne,
CEO, Melanoma Institute Australia

BlackBerry Workspaces has been incredibly useful for Oetker Collection. We rarely have to travel for projects now, instead using the platform to collaborate with contractors, vendors, and suppliers. If I had to assign a value to it, I’d say we spend nearly thirty percent less time on projects now than we did before the BlackBerry implementation.

Head of Projects, Oetker Collection


A lot of companies in our industry are going with their own FTP solution. This means installing servers and services for every single partner and contractor. With Workspaces, we don’t need to do that—we have one system in place to quickly and securely share files between businesses, and one that’s easy to maintain.

Rob ter Linden,
IT Security Specialist and Solution Architect, Evides

Security is something our customers really demand, and a core pillar of our organization. That’s why we use BlackBerry. They’re better for the security minded than MobileIron or AirWatch, and their solutions are the most innovative. Not only that, their platform allows us to manage all kinds of endpoints and deployment models from a single console – something none of their competitors offer.

Petra Baumann,
Chief Operations Officer, solvito GmbH

Thanks to BlackBerry Workspaces, we were able to make many security improvements, in addition to addressing several other issues with our previous system. We are extremely pleased with the platform’s features, and it has decreased our risk of information leaks dramatically.

Takuro Watabe,
Senior Supervisor of IT Planning & Development, Olympus Corporation

BlackBerry Workspaces provided everything we needed: Great security, excellent usability, and the ability to edit protected documents while they’re on the server. It also lets us know exactly where a document is being accessed at any given time – that logging and reporting functionality is something no one else does.

President, Spirit of Math Schools, Inc
