U.S., Canadian governments have their voice and text protected by BlackBerry's SecuSUITE
There is light at the end of the tunnel at BlackBerry headquarters in Waterloo. And no, it isn't from an oncoming train. The company has a well received handset in the BlackBerry KEYone, it reported strong earnings for its fiscal first quarter, and its cybersecurity offering is providing more protection for the U.S. and Canadian governments. SecuSUITE for Government, a multi-platform solution designed to offer end-to-end encryption for texts and voice calls, is now a part of BlackBerry Secure.

With SecuSUITE for government on the job, federal agencies are protected from eavesdropping and the service offers secure calls over both Wi-Fi and cellular networks. Since it works on all networks, federal agencies don't need to be forced to use a specific carrier. More than 20 governments around the world protect their communications using SecuSUITE.


The program is the only National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP) certified voice solution that works on smartphones and tablets powered by iOS, Android and BlackBerry 10. As BlackBerry continues to  provide software solutions to governments, the company continues to masterfully navigate its new life as a provider of software focusing on cyber security.

Okay, I give you credit for getting the first comment. Though I find it insignificant, because getting the first comment is a normal thing to me. :)

Does it matter? Is the first comment that important?

Another BlackBerry article, another round of trolling by the usual suspects in 3...2...1

Difference of opinion isn't trolling.

But constant bashing is, and that's exactly what you do to BlackBerry, Samsung, Android, and now, Nokia.

Translation: "I'm still crying about what Meanestgenius has said. I can't dispute the facts he just laid before me, so I'll just play the victim role in hopes that he doesn't drag me around the comments section again, because all I do is run away in the end because I can't beat Meanestgenius." FIFY.

Lol, it's like you said "Candyman" 3 or more times, and now "usual suspect" (Read: Flash) has appeared. He felt compelled to respond to you in the way that he did because he knows he's usually doing the trolling around here.

You're the one who continues to troll and attack people just because they disagree with you. And now you are attacking me on Nokia articles just because I said something about the bezels.

You're being a hypocrite now, as you constantly troll the OEM's and OS that I previously mentioned, and you attack people that speak favorably about Samsung, and you attack people because they disagree with you about Apple. I troll the trolls, and have always said that, and that's what you can't stand. I'm honest about what I do. You continue to lie about your incessant trolling that EVERYONE on this site sees and tries to hide it under the word opinion.

I told you multiple times that I attack the haters and hypocrites. Get over it. You're just triggered by what I say just because I'm the one who said it. You just can't stand to see me voice my opinion.

If that's what you do, then it's surely what I do with the haters and hypocrites like you, because you hate on BlackBerry, Samsung and Android incessantly. And why is it that you're "voicing your opinion", but everyone else that does the same concerning your deity Apple is a hater and a hypocrite? I'll tell you why. It's because you're a hypocritical liar that's spewing pure BS. You troll OEM's and OS's that you don't like. You attack anyone that doesn't agree with you. I troll the trolls like you and you just can't stand to see me provide the facts to counter your trolling

Awesome to see BlackBerry doing what they do best.

See this is what blackberry is strongest at, keeping things secure and software offerings. They should focus more on that than trying to compete with the likes of Samsung and other Android OEMs.

BlackBerry isn't competing with any smartphone OEM, as they no longer make hardware. I know that's hard for you to accept, but join us in the real world now.

And here we go. Can't stop whining, can you? Unlike you, I am in the real world.

Lol, now you're crying because I smacked you out of your fantasy world with the facts.

At least BlackBerry has built some phones in its history. Apple has NEVER built a phone so by your logic, they should stick with building the greatest apps in the marketplace and allow Foxconn to continue battling Samsung and the others. HMD, TCL and Foxconn are the OEMs while Nokia, BlackBerry and Apple supply software. Each uses its brand awareness to bring customers to their doorstep yet don't lift a finger to build any of the hardware bearing their name. Wow, how do those fact nuggets sound?

History? We are talking about the "present" or is this one of those things where it's only convenient for you to say? Apple is an OEM. Wait, why are we talking about Apple? I don't think it matters.

In other words: "Crispin just put me in my place with the facts, and I can't dispute it, so I'll just deflect and run away from it." There. I fixed your BS post for you.
