Blue Cedar has announced the Blue Cedar Accelerator for BlackBerry, which enables organisations to quickly, easily and continuously integrate the BlackBerry Dynamics into their mobile apps, without the need to write any code, while still maintaining security and other critical controls.
As the growth of business and mission-transformative mobile apps accelerates, organisations need to ensure data security and policy compliance wherever these apps are used. The lack of security integration and the resulting need for skilled security developers to manually code integration in response to app and security controls updates is negatively impacting time-to-value and costs for organisations.
With the Blue Cedar Accelerator for BlackBerry, organisations benefit from the automated integration of BlackBerry controls into their mobile apps and the associated time, cost savings as well as reducing the need for mobile app security developers.
Blue Cedar uses app “injection” to automatically integrate MAM features into apps; plus, they also offer a mobile-specific VPN and gateway product.
Embedding BlackBerry security into custom or third party ISV apps is simple. Upload an app to the Blue Cedar Platform, select the Blue Cedar Accelerator for BlackBerry, click to integrate and you are done. There is no integration code that requires ongoing maintenance.
Organisations can make all of BlackBerry Dynamics’ security services, platform services and mobile services available in integrated apps without writing a single line of code. Ensure that integrated apps can seamlessly connect through the BlackBerry Network Operations Center (NOC), then deploy the Blue Cedar Platform, on-premises, a requirement for many BlackBerry customers, or consume it from the cloud.
Organisations can build apps for iOS or Android. Use all development frameworks and databases, including Xcode, Android Studio, Xamarin, Adobe PhoneGap, HTML5, React Native, Realm, SQLCipher and SQLite, because Blue Cedar uniquely has deep visibility up to the network layer in mobile apps, where it can integrate the necessary controls.
Mark Wilson, Chief Marketing Officer, BlackBerry said,
“Organisations implementing an enterprise mobile strategy are challenged to keep up with the constant state of change with new endpoints, new apps and new business demands,”
“The Blue Cedar platform enables our customers in highly regulated industries, like financial services, healthcare and government, to quickly and easily develop mobile applications that comply with the extra stringent security guidelines and mandates.”
Blue Cedar is a leading no code mobile app security platform that saves organisations significant time and money, by eliminating the need for developer resources to secure custom and third-party mobile apps.
John Aisien, CEO, Blue Cedar said,
“This is a great time to be working with BlackBerry as they complete their transformation to an enterprise technology company and lead the way with their commitment to providing a higher level of security and data privacy to customers,”
“Together with BlackBerry, we’re enabling global customers to realize their digital transformation goals by providing a frictionless way of making sure mobile apps continuously comply with internal security policies and external regulations.”
Blue Cedar has joined the BlackBerry ISV Partner Program and the Blue Cedar Accelerator for BlackBerry is listed on the BlackBerry Marketplace. To further streamline the customer experience and improve service delivery, BlackBerry’s teams are fully trained on the Blue Cedar platform to resell and serve as a single point of contact for professional services and support.
