BlackBerry and Giuliani Partners Join Forces to Combat Cyber Threats

By Ken Briodagh January 06, 2017

BlackBerry Limited recently announced that BlackBerry Secure will be the underlying software platform for the Giuliani Partners cybersecurity consulting services for government and enterprise customers. Under the terms of the partnership, Giuliani Partners will take advantage of BlackBerry’s secure mobile communications technology to assess infrastructures, identify potential cyber security vulnerabilities, address gaps and secure endpoints with the goal of offering another channel to bring customers to a new standard of security. The partnership provides an opportunity for BlackBerry to further expand its channels of distribution as the company moves aggressively into the security software business.

“Businesses must be able to confidentially and reliably transmit sensitive data between endpoints to keep people, information and goods safe,” said John Chen, Executive Chairman and CEO, BlackBerry. “We are pleased to be working closely with Giuliani Partners to offer BlackBerry Secure products and services to new customers in the fight against cybersecurity threats.”

The team at Giuliani Partners has extensive experience in advising an exclusive group of organizations in diverse areas related to leadership, management, market expansion, cybersecurity, safety and crisis management.

“Giuliani Partners’ deep experience in crime reduction, security and anti-terrorism consulting, real time threat identification, investigations and physical and cyber security, combined with BlackBerry’s industry leadership and ongoing product innovation will enable corporations to set a new standard for being cyber secure,” said Rudy Giuliani, Chairman and CEO, Giuliani Partners.

This new venture with Giuliani Partners signifies BlackBerry’s continued momentum as a leading innovator in security software and services. BlackBerry is the only Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) vendor to receive Full Operational Capability (FOC) for US DoD, and most recently received the highest score in all six out of six use cases of Gartner’s “Critical Capabilities for High-Security Mobility Management” report.
