THE NEW BLACKBERRY Taking the world of BlackBerry users by storm is BES12, the cross-platform EMM solution by BlackBerry, and the foundation of a greater new generation of enterprise security, productivity and device management. As your BlackBerry solution partner, we can help you migrate to BES12 quickly and easily.
CERTIFIED WORLD-CLASS SECURE Around the world, the BlackBerry solution passes the highest security tests. It is the first to earn Common Criteria EAL 4+ certification, FIPS validation and more.
Government and NATO Approvals BlackBerry EMM solutions are approved for storing and transmitting sensitive data by several major government organizations, including NATO, receiving the valued NATO RESTRICTED classification. Security bureaus and defense directorates need the most stringent protection to secure their information.
CAPS Security Program The CESG Assisted Product Service (CAPS) is a program of CESG, the United Kingdom National Technical Security Authority. It is designed to help private sector companies develop cryptographic products for the U.K. government. BlackBerry has received RESTRICTED (IL3) approval from CAPS.
FIPS Validation BlackBerry is proud to have products certified as part of the FIPS 140-2: Cryptographic Module Validation Program (CMVP). Beyond federal organizations, FIPS 140-2 is often seen as a requirement for broader government and law enforcement use, and also provides peace of mind for enterprise customers.
Common Criteria Evaluation Scheme The Common Criteria is an international evaluation scheme of IT security products and systems recognized by 26 countries, including Australia, Canada, France, Germany, the UK and US. Ã‚Â BlackBerry Enterprise Solution is the first wireless platform to earn Common Criteria EAL 4+ certification.
Enterprise Mobility Management
CONTROL, SECURITY AND COMPLIANCE To take full advantage of workforce mobilization, enterprises need to move beyond short-term management plans and adopt a comprehensive Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) solution to meet the challenges of today and tomorrow. No solution provider is better suited to meet this need than BlackBerry. We have always pushed the boundaries of mobile opportunities and earned the trust of organizations around the world for our unparalleled security and always on connectivity. Our new software solutions extend the value of BlackBerry even further, ushering in a new era of EMM.
Communication and Collaboration
NO COMPROMISE MOBILE COMMUNICATIONS When it comes to optimizing communication and collaboration for mobile workers, BlackBerry canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t be beat. BlackBerry solutions allow organizations to securely manage both work and personal content for BlackBerry, iOS, Android and Windows Phone devices. Employees can access calendars, corporate contacts, intranet browsers, documents and email accounts without a virtual private network. BlackBerry even extends EMM capabilities to BBM Protected for end-to-end encrypted instant messaging, and BlackBerry Blend secures access to BlackBerry content from desktops, laptops and tablets.
Identity and Access
Controlling user access to applications and data, including content stored in the cloud, demands a centralized, user-centric approach. BlackBerryÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s identity and access solutions leverage the companyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s legacy in enterprise mobility to simplify access to corporate resources, reduce IT overhead and improve end user experience. We can help you explore the full control capabilities of BlackBerry. Ask us. Single identity Centralized identity management of cloud-based services can increase security and productivity through federation and single sign on (SSO). Centralized control By centralizing identity and access, IT can put an end to unauthorized Ã¢â‚¬Ëœshadow ITÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ activities. Extending IT oversight to cloud-based services further tightens security and simplifies compliance auditing. IT efficiency Identity management reduces the strain on IT by automating control of entitlements and access through integration with enterprise directory services. Employee and partner identity management Centralized identity management makes onboarding of new hires easier and ensures access to corporate data is deactivated as employees leave.
Regulated Business and Industries
ULTIMATE SECURITY AND CONTROL Government agencies, companies in regulated markets and businesses that require stringent security and control trust BlackBerry for their enterprise mobility needs. Regulated industries, such as financial services, healthcare, and government, from around the world partner with BlackBerry to safeguard corporate data, meet compliance requirements and manage increasingly complex and diverse mobile environments. BES12 and the BlackBerry trusted network provide end-to-end protection and compliance capabilities for both BlackBerry and cross-platform device environments from a single management console.
BES12 is the next generation of the BES platform. It enables organisations to develop and manage enterprise-grade applications that can be quickly deployed to BlackBerry smartphones and other mobile devices. BES12 isÃ‚Â backwards compatible, and will unify BES10 and BES 5 to one platform. With BES12, you really will have a single, BlackBerry-secure platform to manage your entire mobile estate. The new BES12 platform incorporates the following core capabilities:
- Backwards compatible and future proof: BlackBerry OS devices will be supported and the new platform also provides the foundation for you to integrate new mobile endpoints, as well as scaling datacenter-grade deployments and implementing active-active high availability clusters for ultimate reliability.

- Mobilise apps: BES12 will deliver the tools and integration points that make it easy to develop and deploy securely connected enterprise apps across all supported platforms.
Making sure your devices and networks are compliant as well as secure
Rapid Mobile operates in some of the most highly regulated areas of business and government. We can advise on compliance with legal, financial, government and other areas of regulation and governance. BlackBerry is recognised as a secure, regulation-ready platform, with devices and management that conform to the most stringent security and audit-trailing requirements.
High security device management
We recommend BlackBerry where granular control over device features is required, especially if you have corporate-only use or application management policies. BlackBerry 10 smartphones, and BlackBerry Enterprise Service 12 with Regulated-level Enterprise Mobility Management, combine to provide the ultimate device management solution for government and regulated environments. You can create a managed Personal Space on the device through BlackBerry Balance. This allows users to make the most of their device for personal use, while the enterprise retains full device control and all work related content is fully protected within the Work Space.
Mobile compliance: Government/CESG and corporate regulation
Regulated-level enterprise mobility management from BlackBerry enables BlackBerry 10 smartphones to comply with government and regulated environments that require a higher degree of control over devices.
Government and CESG compliance
The Government has recently published fresh guidelines covering network and device security. They cover issues such as assured protection for data-in-transit and data-at-rest, authentication of users and devices, and security policy enforcement. Rapid Mobile can help with all aspects of compliance policy and security, including CESG compliance and deploying mobiles in strictly regulated environments such as financial services. We have security-cleared consultants, who take a consultative approach to identify the security level and key requirements. Our approach begins with a thorough risk assessment, including access risks associated with NFC, Bluetooth, mobile phone cameras and other points of vulnerability. As cross platform specialists, we can advise on CESG compliance for BlackBerry 10, iOS and Android. Our solutions address all the key issues around CESG compliance, including:
- Accessing data in transit and data at rest
- Bring-your-own-device (BYOD) and consumerisation
- Cold-boot attacks
- Compromise of the operating system
- Personal data and applications
- Application whitelisting
- Security policy enforcement
- Device update policy recommendations
- Cost control and optimisation Ã¢â‚¬â€œ no more, no less than you need
