Mobilizing Workers in Regulated Industries Poses Bigger Security Challenges. Here are the Solutions.

Organizations in fields like healthcare, government, and financial services are faced with several unique challenges where mobility is concerned. On one hand, they must follow frameworks and directives such as MiFID II, regulations that dictate requirements around encryption strength, data storage, and data discoverability. On the other, workers in these industries have the same needs as anywhere else.

They must have access to the corporate resources they require to do their job. They must have the ability to quickly and easily collaborate with one another. And in some cases, they demand the ability to use their personal devices in the workplace.

How can IT professionals accomplish all of this without significant security trade-offs?

BlackBerry’s Security Leadership Shines Through

Because of our diverse solutions suite and our commitment to security, Gartner recently granted BlackBerry the top score in the Regulated Industries Use Case for its 2017 Critical Capabilities for Enterprise Mobility Management Report. A survey of enterprise customers, the Critical Capabilities Report details how advanced EMM users use their mobility solutions.

As you may recall, this is not the only time our leadership has been recognized. Besides being recognized a Leader in Gartner’s EMM Magic Quadrant, we also received the highest score in 6 out of 6 use cases in Gartner’s Critical Capabilities for High Security Mobility Management Report last August.

Secure, Manage, Connect, and Comply Through BlackBerry

Balancing regulatory compliance with productivity doesn’t have to be difficult. You CAN ensure your business keeps sensitive data properly protected without impeding workers. You CAN give employees the level of access and freedom they demand without putting your data at risk.

That’s what BlackBerry enables. With the BlackBerry Enterprise Portfolio, compliance, collaboration, and productivity need not be at odds. We’ll give your employees the access they need, and ensure that we do so without putting any of your data, regulated or otherwise, at risk.

We excel at more than just regulated mobility. Be sure to also check out our blog on the importance of unmanaged device support, and what BlackBerry does to enable it.
