BlackBerry UEM and Microsoft 365 aim to provide customers with a BlackBerry secure version of modern authentication in the cloud, in addition to on-premises environments. The integration between BlackBerry UEM and Microsoft Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) has been designed to improve secure authentication and conditional access.

BlackBerry UEM enables organisations and end users to be productive from anywhere, securely. The past 18 months have emphasised the uncompromisable need for security and productivity to go hand-in-hand, according to Billy Ho, executive vice president of Spark Product Engineering, BlackBerry.

“Enterprises around the world use both BlackBerry UEM and Microsoft 365 every day, and we are pleased to enable them to protect their data and empower their workforce through these integrations.”

Wangui McKelvey, general manager Microsoft 365 at Microsoft, said, “Digital technologies are presenting enterprises with new ways of doing business.

Ho said, “Our customers choose Microsoft 365 for productivity and collaboration tools that deliver high productivity. Together with BlackBerry, we will take this to the next level and provide enterprises with the standard for secure productivity.”

The enhanced BlackBerry UEM and Microsoft 365 integration is designed to enable the workforce to be more secure and productive from anywhere.
