BlackBerry and Giuliani Partners join forces to combat cyber threats
BlackBerry Secure has been selected by Giuliani Partners as the underlying software platform to support the firm's cybersecurity consulting services for government and enterprise customers, BlackBerry Limited announced earlier today. Under the partnership, Giuliani Partners and BlackBerry will assess infrastructures, identify potential cyber security vulnerabilities, address gaps and secure endpoints.
“Businesses must be able to confidentially and reliably transmit sensitive data between endpoints to keep people, information and goods safe,” said John Chen, executive chair and CEO at BlackBerry. “We are pleased to be working closely with Giuliani Partners to offer BlackBerry Secure products and services to new customers in the fight against cybersecurity threats.”
According to a recent BlackBerry study, nearly 90 per cent of IT executives worry about potential hacks and 50 per cent of these executives predict they will experience more security breaches through mobile devices.
“Giuliani Partners’ experience in crime reduction, security and anti-terrorism consulting, real time threat identification, investigations and physical and cyber security, combined with BlackBerry’s ongoing product innovation will enable corporations to set a new standard for being cyber secure,” said Rudy Giuliani, chair CEO of Giuliani Partners.
BlackBerry says this venture allows it to further expand its channels of distribution as it moves deeper into the security software business
