(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – On Thursday BlackBerry announced that its BlackBerry 10 had received “full operational capability” from the United States Department of Defense, making it the only mobile company to have this certification.
“As the first mobile solutions provider to achieve FOC, BlackBerry continues to prove why we are the most trusted enterprise mobility platform,” said John Sims, BlackBerry President of Global Enterprise Services. “BlackBerry worked side-by-side with DISA to help certify the BlackBerry 10 solution offering the U.S. government an end-to-end mobile infrastructure that does not compromise on security and provides the most productive and collaborative mobile experience.”
The BlackBerry 10, connected with BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 software, now enables government employees to securely access email, data, apps, and DoD network resources, says a press release from the company.
One of the main features of the BlackBerry 10 smartphone is the BlackBerry Balance technology, a feature that allows users to switch between work and personal profiles. Users get the “full benefits of a consumer experience” with the Balance technology due to its ability to separate work content from personal data.
