BlackBerry has announced plans to release the SecuSUITE for Enterprise app for BlackBerry 10, iOS and Android platforms later in November. The VoIP app has been made for business customers who want to have more secure voice and text chats.
By using SecuSUITE for Enterprise, company employees will be able to conduct secure conversations worldwide and, if required, over a Wi-Fi connection only, and will also be able to send encrypted text messages of any length. Voice and text messages are encrypted with 128-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) on the individual device level, meaning that even when, for example, the other party cannot be reached, the message is stored on the receiver´s smartphone and only sent to the recipient when they are available. SecuSUITE for Enterprise comes with a user-friendly, cloud-based admin portal that enables administrators to enroll or deactivate users and adjust settings. Companies do not need to set up additional IT infrastructure to use the app to secure their communications.
The app will be available through an annual license, but no price was mentioned. BlackBerry also announced that its SecuSUITE for BlackBerry 10 software will now be called SecuSUITE for Government.
