SecureApp: Ensuring Productivity and Security for Your Mobile Workforce

SecureApp: Ensuring Productivity and Security for Your Mobile Workforce

Employees can only be as productive as their work applications allow them to be, yet 80% of organizations are limiting in some way the deployment of apps as a direct result of security concerns (Source: Quinstreet, December 2018).

Anywhere, anytime access to business data is what fuels the mobile workforce, yet that ease of access to potentially sensitive company information is also what puts organizations at a substantial risk of a data breach — an event that could wreak havoc on an organization, jeopardize its brand, and cost millions of dollars in remediation efforts.

For enterprise organizations, mobile apps are part of a strategic toolset that can increase employee productivity well beyond the walls of the office, streamline business processes, enable team collaboration, attract and engage customers, and ultimately boost sales.

However, off-the-shelf third-party productivity apps can present huge security risks.

In addition, while employees are more productive on their preferred devices, personal devices are never as secure as company-issued devices, adding more security risks if not managed appropriately.

Therein lies the challenge: how does an enterprise organization provide anywhere, anytime, any-device mobile app functionality while maintaining the highest level of data security across the lifecycle of the app from development to deployment, updates to sunset?

In this whitepaper, we’ll explain how you can leverage the industry-leading BlackBerry mobility and productivity suite that leverages zero-trust architecture to ensure robust security by using:

BlackBerry Work to combine enterprise email, calendaring, contacts, presence, document access and editing for complete mobile functionality so employees aren’t tethered to a desktop

BlackBerry Access to give employees access to corporate networks, applications, and data in a secure browser with full containerization to protect sensitive information

BlackBerry Connect to integrate instant messaging and collaboration solutions, including Microsoft® Lync® or Cisco Jabber, with your mobile apps so employees can communicate and collaborate securely on any device any time anywhere

BlackBerry Dynamics to speed up mobilization of all your core business apps including collaboration, ISV and custom-developed apps with a common app platform while protecting corporate and user data with industry-leading containerization and controlling costs with no dependence on per-app VPNs or Virtual Desktops Infrastructures

Even More Microsoft Apps: With BlackBerry’s Secure Mobile Apps, enterprises can extend Microsoft Office, Exchange, Lync, and SharePoint technologies to mobile devices so employees can be productive anywhere with containerized data to protect sensitive information, or enterprises can mobilize existing business applications and build-in additional productivity features by utilizing the secure apps in BlackBerry’s Marketplace for Enterprise Software

There is a better way to build cutting-edge mobile apps that offer the productivity-boosting functionality that your employees need with air-tight security. With BlackBerry’s Secure Mobile Apps, users can be productive on any device in any place with access to email, web applications, an intranet, and product information management systems with robust security controls.
