John Chen Speaks of a Cat and Mouse Game

John Chen explains BlackBerry’s Role in the EoT.

A few days ago, John Chen took to LinkedIn to speak of BlackBerry’s role in the EoT.

Recognizing the coming of the Internet of Things (IoT) BlackBerry under John Chen’s leadership has created a new category. A category which is sorely needed even if it’s not at the top of everyone’s list. That is of course security.

“… the question that is most often asked about connected Things is, whether a securely connected world is really possible? A securely connected EoT is possible and BlackBerry is already demonstrating how. “

Not only demonstrating, but setting the standard.

“Whilst there is much conversation on the topic of cybersecurity there is no agreed framework of what ‘good’ looks like. At BlackBerry, we are defining what the cybersecurity standard is.”

But the world of cyber security is ever changing. Security issues that are solved and patched today, can be blown open tomorrow. Keeping our devices secure requires a constant watchful eye to ensure that they’re as safe tomorrow as they are today.

“‘Is a securely connected world really possible?’.  Yes it is and, not only is it possible, it is a category that BlackBerry is bringing definition to and providing leadership in.  We recognize that security is a cat and mouse game, requiring constant investment and innovation and that is what we do, day in, day out. “

John Chen and current BlackBerry leadership, has taken a historic brand, and capitalized skills honed in a smartphone world, to bring secure software services which can affect every aspect of our modern lives.

The future looks bright.

The future looks BlackBerry Secure.
