BlackBerry and Samsung sign new multi-year agreement to bring customers security solutions
Since the agreement was about to expire this year, BlackBerry and Samsung have decided to extend their partnership “to collaboratively develop and bring to market integrated solutions to accelerate the digital transformation and Enterprise of Things initiatives of their shared business customers.”
According to the announcement, Samsung will bring its expertise in device solutions, while BlackBerry will focus on endpoint security and management. As a matter fact, the first thing the partnership will take care of is all the shared enterprise customers that use Samsung devices (mobiles, tablets, and wearables), which be offered the option to manage their devices via the BlackBerry Universal Endpoint Management (UEM) platform.
The terms of the agreement don't mention when it will expire, but it's safe to say that it will be extended if nothing bad happens with either of the two companies.
