Security verified by US regulators, new management software certified for use

BlackBerry announced earlier today that is has received US Government Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 certification, which allows employees to use its enterprise software on Apple's iPads and the predominantly Samsung-provided mobile equipment. The certification applies to Secure Work Space, which isolates management-installed apps and files from personal content.

FIPS 140-2 certification requires a cryptographic module show evidence of tampering, including tamper-evident coatings or seals that must be broken to attain physical access to the plaintext cryptographic keys. It is one of four potential levels. Both Apple and Samsung have FIPS 140-2 certification for products used by the US Government.

The newly-certified BlackBerry Secure Work Space software suite will be managed through BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10. The software and service connects to messaging and collaboration software on enterprise networks and redirects emails and synchronizes contacts and calendaring information between servers, desktop workstations, and mobile devices.
