Ever Wonder How BlackBerry Secures its Proprietary Network?


Concept of protection of antivirus and firewall concept

Arguably the most famous and mythical component of BlackBerry is the BlackBerry Infrastructure, a secure global network that transmits petabytes of encrypted data to and from the world’s most powerful mobile professionals. This network is just one part of the BlackBerry Corporate Infrastructure, the environment where BlackBerry builds secure solutions for millions of customers, from military-grade smartphones to industry-leading Enterprise Mobility Management.

Today we’re happy to announce the release of the first ever BlackBerry Corporate Infrastructure Security Overview. This 20-page white paper outlines the key standards and processes that we use every single day to protect our loyal customers. You’ll find info on topics like:

  • The key teams that work around the clock to keep your mobile communication safe
  • The physical security of BlackBerry buildings and data centers
  • The authentication and authorization controls across the organization
  • The disaster recovery procedures that help make BlackBerry reliable in times of need

Always remember that security is only as strong as its weakest link. While security starts at the endpoints, those endpoints need to be designed and delivered in a secure environment and the data needs to travel across a secure network.

Today we live in an era of cyber warfare where public attacks from criminal organizations threaten corporations and constant data breaches threaten our individual right to privacy. Whether we’re protecting classified information, corporate trade secrets or simply our own private photos, we all need and deserve access to secure mobile communication.
