BlackBerry Gets Key DOD Certification, Deployments With U.S. Coast Guard and Senate

As part of today’s BlackBerry Security Summit, we have a trio of exciting announcements to share with our customers, especially in government and other regulated industries. In addition to awarding Security Technical Implementation Guide (STIG) certification to two core software solutions, the U.S. government has selected the AtHoc Crisis Communications platform for two essential departments.

Assigned and distributed by the Defense Information Systems Agency at the U.S. Department of Defense, STIGs offer specific guidelines as to how devices should be configured to maximize security and are essential in preventing cyberattacks against government agencies.

Receiving STIG approval for BlackBerry UEM (Unified Endpoint Manager) and BlackBerry OS 10.3.2 demonstrates that our security capabilities continue to be second to none, compliant with the latest security standards and certifications in government. It also further expands our government certifications and approvals portfolio, which already sits at 80 – more than any other mobile vendor. Among these are the UK’s CESGNATO’s Communications Security Establishment, and the U.S.’s NIST.
