BlackBerry has updated its enterprise security solution BlackBerry Secure, in a move that aims to help organisations protect their personnel during a crisis in eight additional languages.
Additionally, BlackBerry AtHoc’s latest updates to its crisis communication platform includes enhanced mobile alerting functionality, upgraded map-based experiences for emergency operators, and significant performance improvements.
“A wide range of companies, from oil and gas manufacturers in the Middle East to large transportation hubs in Europe, are in need of platforms that will increase communication and efficiencies throughout global teams,” explains Ly Tran, senior vice president of BlackBerry AtHoc Sales.
“In addition to finding platforms that enable this level of productivity, customers are also demanding the most secure solutions on the market,” he says.
Oded Shekel, vice president of Product Management at BlackBerry AtHoc, says communicating during and after a crisis is a universal challenge.
“We make it easier for customers in Europe and Latin America to protect people by sending messages and monitoring activity in local languages,” Shekel says.
“By automating this process and reducing the burden of translations, we are helping organisations reach personnel quickly during a crisis, without language becoming a barrier when response time is critical.”
