As BlackBerry continues to grow their enterprise offerings, they've been finding new partnerships to help them along the way. The latest comes by way of a partnership with Microsoft to introduce a 'first-of-its-kind solution' called BlackBerry Enterprise Bridge, which makes Microsoft mobile apps available from within BlackBerry Dynamics.
The integration allows for a consistent experience from BlackBerry and Microsoft customers such as banks, healthcare providers, law firms, and central governments while also allowing them to work from wherever, whenever in a highly-secure way.
Speaking on the announcement, Carl Wiese, president of Global Sales at BlackBerry noted:
BlackBerry has always led the market with new and innovative ways to protect corporate data on mobile devices. We saw a need for a hyper-secure way for our joint customers to use native Office 365 mobile apps. BlackBerry Enterprise BRIDGE addresses this need and is a great example of how BlackBerry and Microsoft continue to securely enable workforces to be highly productive in today's connected world.
For Microsoft, it's all about taking things to the next level while providing new standards according to Judson Althoff, executive vice president of Worldwide Commercial Business at Microsoft:
In an era when digital technology is driving rapid transformation, customers are looking for a trusted partner. Our customers choose Microsoft 365 for productivity and collaboration tools that deliver continuous innovation and do so securely. Together with BlackBerry, we will take this to the next level and provide enterprises with a new standard for secure productivity.
Aside from the introduction of BlackBerry Enterprise Bridge, both announced that the BlackBerry Secure platform, which includes BlackBerry UEM Cloud, BlackBerry Workspaces, BlackBerry Dynamics, and BlackBerry AtHoc are now available through the Microsoft Azure cloud platform.
