BlackBerry Secures the Modern Workforce with New Digital Workplace
BlackBerry Limited announced BlackBerry® Digital Workplace, a secure robust 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. Today’s workforce is often a mix of full-time employees, contractors, seasonal workers, remote workers, and partners. Organizations need a way to enable this wider range of users to easily access firewall-protected business resources using either company-managed devices or, increasingly, their personal devices.
With BlackBerry Digital Workplace, this mixed workforce 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 enrollment and deprovisioning process.
BlackBerry Digital Workplace integrates Awingu® to simplify access to Windows® and Linux® apps, desktops, corporate intranets, and SaaS and file shares. ConvergeOne, a leading IT services provider of collaboration and technology solutions, has deployed BlackBerry Digital Workplace to ensure the security of the company’s data wherever it resides and control access to its business sensitive data.
