DQ Channels - - News Bytes -

Black­Berry an­nounced that it has en­tered into a de­fin­i­tive agree­ment to ac­quire WatchDox to fur­ther en­hance Black­Berry’s mo­bile se­cu­rity. WatchDox’s tech­nol­ogy will be of­fered as a value-added ser­vice that com­ple­ments Black­Berry’s En­ter­prise Mo­bil­ity Man­age­ment (EMM) port­fo­lio, and will be avail­able with BES12, a multi-OS EMM so­lu­tion.

“Black­Berry is con­stantly ex­pand­ing the po­ten­tial of data se­cu­rity so that it en­ables more col­lab­o­ra­tion and shar­ing rather than cre­at­ing lim­i­ta­tions,” said John Chen, Black­Berry ex­ec­u­tive chair­man and CEO.

How­ever, the terms of the trans­ac­tion were not dis­closed. The ad­di­tion of WatchDox will ex­tend Black­Berry’s com­mit­ment to help or­ga­ni­za­tions se­curely connect em­ploy­ees with each other and with cor­po­rate in­for­ma­tion across all mo­bile and desk­top plat­forms. BES12 is the foun­da­tion for Black­Berry’s ex­ten­sive port­fo­lio of en­ter­prise se­cu­rity, pro­duc­tiv­ity, and com­mu­ni­ca­tion and col­lab­o­ra­tion ser­vices.
