BlackBerry today announced that its Secure Work Space for iOS and Android, a multi-platform containerization offering managed through BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 (BES10), has received Security Technical Implementation Guide (STIG) approval from the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA).
In addition to BlackBerry® 10 smartphones, U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) customers can now use iOS and Android smartphones and tablets connected to BES10.
“Organizations in the private and public sector should proactively secure sensitive data by ensuring that mobility solutions offer the highest level of security,” said Stacy Crook, mobility analyst at IDC.
With Secure Work Space, BES10 protocols for data-at-rest and data-in-transit are extended to iOS and Android devices, including smartphones and tablets. This means sensitive data remains protected and secure while being transmitted through vulnerable channels.
