BB10 now Fully Certified for ALL DOD

Recommended Posts

Something the IOS and driods cannot say.  

 

http://market-ticker.org/akcs-www?post=223433

 

To quote the article:

You need device management (which is both secure and has the handset portion certified as secure) before the DOD (or any other organization that gives a damn about security) should let you bring a device onto the network.

For BlackBerry BES10 is the prerequisite (the device management software) that has held back BB10 from being adopted inside the DOD.  With that in hand rollout can now commence -- and the DOD and affiliated agencies is a huge market.

As I have noted "approval" of a device itself is meaningless -- you need to look at the errata sheets for the requirements that come with it.  When you do that you find that the iPhone, for example, has an errata list that makes it undesirable in that it excludes the very things that make people want to use one (e.g. Apple's app store, etc.)

Since BlackBerry now has the MDM certification and the devices themselves have passed certification (and do not have any onerous requirements in the errata -- the "personal" side of the device remains unrestricted) BlackBerry now has the only available current-generation offering for DOD-connected devices.

 

IOS and Andriod either have not gotten this level of certification and/or they do not have an approved MDM that can keep them properly secured...only BB10 devices and BES have this distinction.  For FIPS(which is low level security protocol) yeah the content consumption devices(ios, android, windows) can be used...with SIGNIFICANT restrictions.  BB 10 does NOT have those restrictions at FIPS level and is the only system fully approved for DOD network at the higher levels as well.  Blackberry isn't going anywhere..much to the chagrin of those who say Blackberry is doomed.

You know it's an editorial when it's filled with bolditalic, and sometimes bold italic underlined words. Things no journalist would use.

 

Interesting story, though. Wonder what wasn't good enough with Samsung's "SAFE" (Samsung Approved For Enterprise) program?

What passes for "professional journalism" today is garbage..i'll take well established bloggers any day these days..it doesn't change the facts mentioned in the article.

Enterprise isn't DOD and android without a complete overhaul into a security conscious OS instead of a media consumption/advertising platform will not get DOD ATO without significant restrictions if it gets it at all...same goes for IOS.

    • My UNLOCKED S-9 can not transmit to the cell site if Band 41 is weak either.  It supposedly has HPUE but I do not see any improvement over phones without HPUE.   To make it wore, recently the parameters have changed that allow me to hang onto Band 41 and band 25 with a signal of -130.  Nothing works at the level, but apparently somebody decided to keep me on extremely poor connections and not allow the phone to drop to a better band.  It probably was done in preparation for VOLTE, but it sure has killed my data experience.   If I am trying to download an attachment to a G-Mail message, I can not do it on band 41 when being held to very bad levels.    -120 was not working and now I find my phone hanging onto -130 level.
    • June security update hit my G7 today - G710P16a (extremely fast reboot/install on this one at that).  Still no sign of Pie unfortunately.
    • Does anyone here have an issue with Band 41 not working well (or at all) on their S10 series device at signal levels of -104 dBmv or worse?  It's like the phone can't reach the tower to send requests.  I never had this issue with my Note 8 and it worked well up to around -120 dBmv. I can't help but wonder if my launch-day S10+ is defective.
    • I'm willing to give T-Mobile credit for at least publishing a map.  As far as I know, Verizon has yet to publish one. - Trip
