The company that holds our hearts, from RIM to BlackBerry.
Thirty-five years ago, on March 7, 1984, Mike Lazaridis founded BlackBerry as a software company called Research In Motion (RIM). Despite a difficult start, BlackBerry became a provider of communication solutions for Canadian mobile operators.
BlackBerry developed secure communications and was the first to develop a secure communication capability between two devices. The development of the BlackBerry was named Mobitex Protocol and is actually the second development of the company that had invented prior the film KeyKode which allowed film studios to get information while editing movies. This earned the the company an Emmy, and of course since then, the process of editing movies much shorter.
BlackBerry became famous when it launched the pager to receive secure email, and in fact BlackBerry had created a new category of technology that now seems to us quite simple. Since the BlackBerry grew and grew and its devices that were the cutting edge of technology such as the first smartphone to icons such as the 9900, 9000, BlackBerry 10 with the Z10, Classic and Passport.
Today everyone knows BlackBerry primarily as a leading cyber company in endpoint security technology with UEM and recently also with Cylance. The company, which has been revived as a secure data transfer solution, has moved to mass mobile devices, a “return to the Mukhorot” in recent years led by John Chen.
