 Press Releases

  • BlackBerry Limited (NASDAQ: BBRY; TSX: BB) announced the company has expanded its cybersecurity offerings for the public sector to now include SecuSUITE® for Government, a multi-platform solution for end-to-end encryption of voice calls and text messages. Part of BlackBerry Secure, the most secure and comprehensive platform to connect people, devices, processes and systems, SecuSUITE for Government is the only National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP) certified voice solution supporting iOS, Android and BlackBerry 10 smartphones and tablets. It is also BlackBerry´s first secure mobile voice product listed on both the NIAP Product Compliant List (PCL) and NSA Commercial Solutions for Classified Program (CSfC) List.

    “Call tapping is happening at an alarming rate,” said Alex Thurber, SVP and General Manager of Mobility Solutions, BlackBerry. “In today’s connected world, restricting agency employees to only exchange classified information from the desk phone is no longer a viable option, but it could be the new reality if governments don’t start securing calls and texts from mobile devices. Our governments need to be mobile and they need their conversations secure, or more importantly, BlackBerry Secure.”

    With the NIAP Common Criteria certification, SecuSUITE for Government can now help Federal agencies safeguard sensitive conversations against electronic eavesdropping. BlackBerry’s solution is hosted on premise, giving full control to the customer, something agencies want and need. It is highly reliable and delivers secure calls over carrier networks the same as secure calls over Wi-Fi, and because it works across all networks, there is no need to lock an organization into a single carrier.

    BlackBerry SecuSUITE is a leading solution for government-grade protection of critical mobile communication used by more than 20 governments across the globe. In addition to more than 80 security certifications, BlackBerry was once again named a Leader in Gartner’s June 2017 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Mobility Management Suites. BlackBerry also received the highest score in all six use cases of Gartner’s August 2016 “Critical Capabilities for High-Security Mobility Management” report.

    SecuSUITE for Government is a multi-platform solution for end-to-end encryption of voice calls and text messages. Available on iOS, Android™, and BlackBerry®, it connects calls quickly, keeps them secure, and ensures excellent voice quality....

  • Ensure employees can make secure calls from their smartphones
    To make encrypted calls, government employees generally have to be sitting at their desks using a secure landline. In our mobile world where everything is time-sensitive, that’s just not viable any more. With SecuSUITE for Government, employees can be truly mobile and make confidential and secure phone calls from their smartphones. Whether economic prosperity, political stability or national security is at stake, it’s a capability which can make all the difference.

    Government employees are increasingly able to use a range of mobile devices and operating systems at work – in some cases, they may even own the device (BYOD). In such instances, enabling secure voice communication on a single OS or device type isn’t enough. Enter SecuSUITE for Government – a cross-platform solution which protects mobile communications on the devices and operating systems employees prefer, including iOS, Android and BlackBerry.

    Government end users aren’t necessarily technology experts – nor should they have to be. If secure communication technology is cumbersome or hard to use, employees may revert to making calls on unsecured lines, or give up the ability to make secure calls while out of the office. SecuSUITE for Government is intuitive and similar to the native dialer that employees use every day on their iOS, Android, or BlackBerry devices. This means users can focus on communicating instead of on learning a new way to make calls or send text messages.


    Make secure calls without sacrificing voice quality, performance or usability 

    SecuSUITE for Government is designed with efficiency in mind. All its encryption and authentication processes run seamlessly and securely in the background, without impacting on battery life, performance or usability. Some competing solutions require users to read out numbers or hashtags before communicating – a technology relic from the past century! With SecuSUITE for Government, making an encrypted mobile phone call is as painless as making a regular call. Users are already authenticated, the certificate exchange takes place during call setup and the client is optimized to maintain its SIP connection, meaning users are always reachable. 
    Technology which meets your highest security standards – Backed by Certification

    When the security stakes are high, you need assurance that the communication technology you’re using meets your standards – and those that may be stipulated by regulators. While many of our competitors claim to be certified for a range of uses, BlackBerry has the longest history of gaining security certifications and national approval in the field. 

    To protect against evolving sophisticated cyber threats, SecuSUITE for Government is secured with strong data-in-transit (DIT) and data-at-rest (DAR) encryption. SecuSUITE for Government can support dual layers of encryption across all data channels, complies with SUITE B cryptography requirements, supports FIPS 140-2 validated keystores and is currently being evaluated for the following Common Criteria certifications based on NIAP Protection Profiles:

    • Protection Profile for VoIP Applications v.1.3 (VoIP PP)
    • Collaborative Protection Profile for Network Devices v.1.0 (ND cPP)
    • ND cPP Extended Package SIP Server (ND cPP SIP EP)


    These are the certifications which matter when the world’s most security-sensitive agencies vet secure voice solutions.
