BlackBerry partners with Samsung on mobile security - Business - CBC News

Waterloo, Ont.-based BlackBerry has made a deal with Samsung that will offer BlackBerry's mobile security on Samsung's Android-powered devices.

As part of the deal, customers with Android smartphones like the Galaxy line of Samsung, which is based in South Korea, will have access to software that brings BlackBerry's mobile security technology.

The news comes the same day the Canadian smartphone maker unveiled its latest software xxx8212; BlackBerry Enterprise Service 12 or BES12.

BlackBerry CEO John Chen lays out his turnaround strategy
BlackBerry's latest device, The Passport
The technology allows companies and enterprise customers to manage older model BlackBerrys alongside newer BB10 versions xxx8212; but also work seamlessly with devices from competitors like Microsoft, Google and Apple.

It will be available on Rogers in Canada and Vodafone in the U.K. at launch, but other carriers may follow.

"Under the agreement, business customers next year will have access to software on Samsung Galaxy smartphones and tablets that is linked with BlackBerry's new mobile security software known as BlackBerry Enterprise Service 12.," BlackBerry executive John Sims said in a statement.

The deal grafts BlackBerry's market-leading reputation for security on to Samsung's mobile security technology, which is called Knox.

BlackBerry's shares gained more than seven per cent on the news, closing at $13.48 on the TSX on Thursday afternoon.

Peter Misek, a venture partner with DN Capital, says Chen has taken a direction that will appeal to the enterprise market.

"Whatxxx8217;s really important about it is that hexxx8217;s actually delivering what enterprises are looking for xxx8211; so they want secure laptops and secure smartphones, they want security on any computer device thatxxx8217;s not connected in the corporate server," he said in an interview with CBC's The Exchange with Amanda Lang.

The deal with Samsung is also a huge step forward as BlackBerry has "come to realize they are going need to support all the operating systems," Misek said.

The news comes as the company is in the midst of a turnaround plan, led by CEO John Chen.

"Next year is about growth," Chen said in his speech announcing BES12. "We're going to focus on growing not only the top line, we're going to focus on growing the profit xxx8230; but you've got to give us a little bit of time to get there."

Microsoft gets married to Nokia.
Google got married/communion to YTube, Moto, list goes on
Apple said I do Beat
Twitter?
Facebook Whatspp with that
so how come BBRY is the only one on the street and enjoying single life.. someone will hitch her.. and if this is Samsung then its for really good reason. now we could see a device built together by BBRY+SMSNG.

Overall this is good tie up and I am sure there is lot more value for the BBRY first and t hen Samsung is having hard time penetrating into the 'secured world' of some big brother so this could be an easy ride in for Samsung.

Somehow I am one of those who still not good at touchscreen keyboards.. may be i will skip the revolution of touch screen and get sucked into evolution of visual typing. 'you think.. you say... you see on screen'

It's a software partnership. They are not planning on building devices together.
