It’s a Good Day: BlackBerry Completes Good Technology Acquisition



Let’s just say it and forgive us the pun: Today is a Good day that will lead to even greater ones.

We are announcing the formal completion of BlackBerry’s acquisition of Good Technology. Though, truth be told, we’ve already hit the ground running to realize this powerful combination.

BlackBerry and Good services combined into one product suite will create the industry’s most complete solution for securing enterprise data, devices and applications – end-to-end. That’s on any platform, whether on-premise or in the cloud.

With Good on our team, we expand our ability to offer a unified, secure mobility platform. It’s a platform with applications for any mobile device on any operating system – supported by security that has been certified by governments around the world embedded in every component of the mobility infrastructure.

BlackBerry and Good come together as respected leaders in Enterprise Mobility Management, which BlackBerry delivers with BES12.

Good’s strength in multi-OS management and applications – with iOS, Android and Windows – expands our ability to offer a unified platform for any mobile device on any operating system. That includes support for Samsung KNOX™ Workspace and Android™ for Work.

Together we will ensure the highest levels of security and personal privacy – including secure and encrypted voice, text, messaging, data and enterprise files. With a unified EMM platform, customers will be confident that their information is safe and data secure, no matter what device or deployment model they rely on.

You’ll see our platform synergies integrated soon, offering the best of containerization and EMM and leveraging BlackBerry’s global network infrastructure.

Coming together also brings benefits to our broader vision for the future as we continue to focus on making investments in security, privacy and the Internet of Things.

Together we will be able to quickly scale customers’ mobile environments, transforming traditional MDM deployments to mission-critical mobile hubs that will ultimately manage an IoT world.

A Good day indeed.
