BlackBerry today announced that BlackBerry® Unified Endpoint Manager (BlackBerry UEM) has achieved certification from the National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP), a U.S. government initiative which oversees the evaluation of commercial cybersecurity products for use in U.S. national security systems.
The NIAP certification further strengthens BlackBerry’s portfolio of certified security solutions for the government sector, as well as regulated industries that have similarly stringent security requirements. The government offering includes NIAP-certified BlackBerry SecuSUITE® for Government for secure voice and FedRAMP-authorized cloud versions of BlackBerry® AtHoc® crisis communication, BlackBerry® Protect endpoint security, and BlackBerry® Government Mobility Suite endpoint management.
"Security is part of BlackBerry’s DNA and all of our products are built with that in mind. This new certification gives our federal government and regulated customers confidence that BlackBerry UEM delivers a high level of security and is compliant with the latest government assurance requirements,” said Billy Ho, Executive Vice President of BlackBerry Spark Group, BlackBerry.
BlackBerry UEM was validated against the latest and most comprehensive version of the NIAP Mobile Device Management Protection Profile version 4. The NIAP Common Criteria certification is a worldwide security standard and is recognized by 31 member countries, including Canada, the United Kingdom, Germany, Netherlands, France, Japan, Singapore, and Australia.
The company also recently announced that BlackBerry UEM is the only MDM solution that was approved for use by the Department of Defense Information Network (DoDIN) and has achieved NATO Restricted Level certification. BlackBerry UEM is the core foundation for BlackBerry Spark Suites, a new range of tailored cybersecurity and endpoint management options to help protect data, minimize risk, and reduce cost and complexity.
