Microsoft Azure now hosts Blackberry’s Good Dynamics security mobility platform

Enterprises can now opt to install and deploy the BlackBerry platform via Microsoft Azure to mobilise a range of business apps.

By CBR Staff Writer

BlackBerry has added its Good Dynamics Secure Mobility Platform to Microsoft Azure to improve collaboration and communication capabilities for businesses adapting the cloud.

The move will enable organisations to mobilise several apps including those used for enhanced collaboration, ISV apps and custom-developed apps via Microsoft's cloud platform, instead of using their own infrastructure.

BlackBerry said with Good Dynamics in Microsoft Azure, the increasing number of businesses in emerging enterprise cloud environments could use enhanced security to make sure that critical business data is never put at risk.

BlackBerry executive vice president of enterprise product and value added solutions Billy Ho said: "As we work side-by-side with Microsoft we are providing customers with a breadth of new options to enhance and increase their mobile security.

"By utilising Good Dynamics through the Microsoft Azure cloud platform, customers have more flexibility in their deployment of BlackBerry´s industry-leading solutions – without having to sacrifice user experience or introduce more complexity into their environments."

Microsoft corporate vice president, developer experience & evangelism and chief evangelist Steve Guggenheimer said: "With BlackBerry´s Good Dynamics now on the Microsoft Azure platform, we continue to help protect customers' data and enhance our ecosystem of business-critical apps.”

BlackBerry had already made its BES12 enterprise server technology available on Microsoft Azure.
