BlackBerry Limited has announced BlackBerry Digital Workplace, a secure workspace that provides users simple and secure online and offline access to corporate on-premise or cloud content including Microsoft Office 365 resources.
Based on BlackBerry’s Zero Trust Architecture, BlackBerry Digital Workplace eliminates the need for a VPN or VDI solution and provides continuous threat protection using artificial intelligence and machine learning to enable users to securely work anywhere and from any device.
BlackBerry Digital Workplace also enables the modern enterprise to protect more users by providing a turnkey solution to quickly onboard or offboard all users.
Billy Ho, Executive Vice President of Enterprise Products at BlackBerry said, “unlike traditional workspace products that inhibit productivity in the name of security, BlackBerry Digital Workplace is easy to use and cost-effective, while simultaneously protecting users both online and offline. Built for virtual workers in the digital age, this solution leverages the power of artificial intelligence alongside BlackBerry’s advanced networking and security features to give users an unparalleled level of productivity, security and flexibility.”
With BlackBerry Digital Workplace, today’s mixed workforce of full-time employees, contractors, seasonal workers, remote workers, and partners, can use their own devices to get to their corporate email, calendar and contacts, and remote desktop and files with many of the same capabilities they would have with a traditional corporate-owned and managed computer. IT can then easily wipe all corporate data from the device, such as at the end of a contract or in the event of an emergency – without having to worry about a complex enrolment and de-provisioning process.
BlackBerry Digital Workplace integrates Awingu to simplify access to Windows and Linux apps, desktops, corporate intranets, and SaaS and file shares.
ConvergeOne, IT services provider of collaboration and technology solutions, deployed BlackBerry Digital Workplace to ensure the security of the company’s data wherever it resides and control access to its business-sensitive data.
