BlackBerry Presents Mobile Security Platform

BlackBerry combines a number of previously acquired technologies in a single management for what it calls the "Enterprise of Things"-- BlackBerry Secure, a software suite connecting and securing all enterprise devices and endpoints.

The acquisitions in question include Good Technology, WatchDox, Athoc and Encription. As the company puts it, data breaches and cybersecurity threats remain the biggest roadblocks in realising the potential of the smart connected devices, bringing about a need for a mobile security platform able to manage and secure communications for all messaging and file types.

BlackBerry adds the platform helps prevent hackers from penetrating devices and PCs, provides intelligence for secure supply chain communications, ensures patient confidentiality in healthcare and safeguards assets in the financial industry.

Microsoft Opens European HoloLens Preorders

Customers in France, Germany, Ireland and the UK interested in the HoloLens can now preorder the mixed reality computing headset, following an initial US launch.
