BlackBerry has strengthened its existing EMM solution by incorporating a range of features from its Good Technology acquisition and released its upgraded Enterprise Mobility Suite as well as Comprehensive Mobile-Security Platform for the Enterprise of Things.
The Canadian enterprise security company says that it has now combined Good’s leading productivity apps and robust secure mobility platform with BlackBerry’s leading security to create an EMM solution that not only offers business-class productivity apps to get work done on the go, but protects their privacy as well.
BlackBerry has managed to garner some of the best known security certifications including Common Criteria EAL-4+ certification on iOS and Android for BlackBerry Work, BlackBerry Access, BlackBerry Connect, the BlackBerry Dynamics SDK (formerly known as Good Work, Good Access, Good Connect, and the Good Dynamics SDK, respectively), and several other former Good-branded apps.
BlackBerry Enterprise Mobility Suite will be offered in a range of tiers including Management Edition, which was formerly known as Good Secure Management Suite; Enterprise Edition, which was formerly known as Good Secure Enterprise Suite; Collaboration Edition, which was formerly known as Good Secure Collaboration Suite; Application Edition, formerly known as Good Secure Mobility Suite; and Content Edition, which was formerly known as Good Secure Content Suite.
Depending on which tier you go for base on your requirements, the BlackBerry Enterprise Mobility Suite offers a range of different combinations that will include BlackBerry Unified Endpoint Manager (formerly known as BES12) multi-OS EMM platform; Certified mobile security with BlackBerry Dynamics (formerly known as Good Dynamics) secure mobile app platform and container; Best-in-class MDM/MAM supporting iOS, Android (including Android for Work, Samsung KNOX), BlackBerry 10, Windows 10 and MacOS; All-in-one, business class BlackBerry Work email and collaboration app; Secure file access supporting SharePoint, file shares, OneDrive, and Box across the apps portfolio; among other things.

Comprehensive Mobile-Security Platform for the Enterprise of Things
BlackBerry also unveiled its Comprehensive Mobile-Security Platform for the Enterprise of Things which it calls BlackBerry Secure – a solution that is being dubbed as a one-stop solution for securing all your information assets from data theft and hacker disruption.
BlackBerry Secure has been described as a foundational platform designed for the Enterprise of Things that takes a mobile-native approach to security, addresses the entire enterprise from endpoint to endpoint, and is cloud-enabled providing companies manage and secure their mobile devices and connected things, while securing communications for all messages and file types.
