BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) may have a lot going on, with talks of a Samsung merger heating up, but this doesn’t mean the company is going to sit back and sleep on security concerns.
Providing the best of the best in terms of security and privacy is what has allowed BlackBerry to remain relevant over the past few years, despite the fact that its smartphone market share is basically non-existent.
Talks of mobile threats are all the rage in today’s business world, with most companies worried about who or what will target them next. This quote and statistic from a recent BlackBerry blog post says it all:
“66% of enterprises acknowledge that they find it difficult to keep up with current and emerging mobile threats.”
Other technology companies talk about privacy and security. BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) does more than that. It lives it. BlackBerry knows that safety and security is job number one, which is why it continues to provide enterprises with a high level of service. This includes information sessions, such as a recent webinar, meant to help companies minimize security risks and secure corporate data.
BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) added the following:
“68% of organizations believe mobile devices are the weakest link in their enterprise security framework.”
Even if BlackBerry is acquired by Samsung, which appears more and more likely with each passing day, there is no reason to believe it will drop the ball in terms of its security offerings. BlackBerry will forever be known as the company that puts more resources into security than the competition, which is something Samsung would be smart to play up if a deal goes through.
In today’s world, companies and individuals are obsessing over security, especially when it comes to their mobile devices, such as smartphones. BlackBerry isn’t what it used to be 15 years ago, but it still has a lot of life left, thanks to its security prowess.
In the months to come, we could see BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) merge with Samsung. If this happens, it will be interesting to see how both brands move forward, and if BlackBerry’s security technology remains as strong. The merger appears to be a win-win for the companies involved, with enterprises and consumers benefiting as well.
