BlackBerry UEM Sets Precedent with BSI Clearance for Securing Government iOS Devices

In a significant development from Munich, BlackBerry Limited has achieved an industry-first by securing clearance from the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) for the use of BlackBerry Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) on Apple iNDIGO devices. This landmark certification, denoted by BSI-DSZ-CC-1235, positions BlackBerry UEM as a pioneering solution for Mobile Device Management (MDM) within the realm of government operations on iOS devices.

The BSI certification process assesses solutions against the Common Criteria Standards to an Evaluation Assurance Level 4 (EAL4), ensuring that they meet rigorous security standards. The government of Germany and other pivotal industry agencies are now empowered to deploy iOS devices to their staff with the confidence that the BlackBerry UEM platform can securely manage high confidentiality information, essential for classified governmental communications.

BlackBerry UEM is distinguished not only for this latest accolade but also for holding more security certifications than any other UEM solution available in the market. With compatibility across iOS, Android, Windows, and Mac devices, BlackBerry UEM serves governments and enterprises globally, providing a robust foundation for secure mobile device policies.

Highlighting the significance of this breakthrough, Hans-Peter Bauer, SVP EMEA Sales at BlackBerry’s Cybersecurity Business Unit, commented, “A secure and trusted mobile device policy is crucial for operational efficiency in contemporary government settings. The BSI clearance for BlackBerry UEM marks a pivotal moment, enabling the German government and critical infrastructure organizations to advance their device deployment strategies without compromising on essential security and confidentiality requirements.”

Further cementing its position in the UEM landscape, BlackBerry was named the 2023 Gartner Peer Insights “Customers’ Choice” for UEM tools. This recognition is based on direct customer feedback regarding deployment effectiveness, capabilities, and support. This accolade aligns with BlackBerry’s positioning as a ‘Leader’ in both the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide UEM Software 2022 Vendor Assessment and the IDC MarketScape Worldwide UEM Software for Ruggedized/Internet of Things Device Deployments, which provide a comprehensive analysis of global UEM software providers.
