BlackBerry Unveils Multi-Platform Encryption Tool for Govt Clients

BlackBerry has added a new multi-platform encryption tool to the mobile technology firm’s portfolio of cybersecurity offerings designed for the public sector.

SecuSUITE for Government is certified by the National Information Assurance Partnership as a voice platform that can support smartphones and tablets with Android, BlackBerry 10 and iOS operating systems, BlackBerry said Thursday.

The company added that SecuSUITE has been included on the NIAP Product Compliant List and the National Security Agency‘s Commercial Solutions for Classified program list.

“Restricting agency employees to only exchange classified information from the desk phone is no longer a viable option, but it could be the new reality if governments don’t start securing calls and texts from mobile devices,” said Alex Thurber, senior vice president and general manager of BlackBerry’s mobility solutions business.

BlackBerry noted its NIAP Common Criteria certification provides an opportunity for the company to help federal customers secure conversations from potential electronic eavesdropping with the SecuSUITE platform.
