“Mobility is one of the most exciting areas of the 21st century workplace and while bespoke enterprise applications and mobile collaboration tools are a boon to business efficiency and employee productivity, managing security risks is a growing challenge.” – Richard McLeod, VP of Global Enterprise Software Channels, BlackBerry
This quote says all. In the modern mobile world, enterprises have many cyber security risks. These risks come in the form of smartphones and any other endpoint device that is ran under the company software by their employees. Every endpoint is a cyber attack risk and if you wish to be prepared to the challenges you need that cyber security experts by your side.
That why BlackBerry is launching this new program, called SHIELD Advisor. BlackBerry partners can have the cyber security expertise of BlackBerry at their disposal. With this program, BlackBerry professionals will teach and advise their customers about the IoT and EoT risks and give them solutions. As of now, the SHIELD Advisor Program is only available to Gold or Platinum BlackBerry enterprise partners.
