BlackBerry just launched the Android Secured website a month after it purchased two Android-related security domains. Although the company’s motives were unclear at that time, it quietly worked to create a brand new website specializing in better security for Android users. Android Secured Hub offers management solutions and security updates for enterprise users.
BlackBerry confirms new security website for Android enterprise users
BlackBerry introduced the website in a blog post, stating, “Solving these challenges is something that we’re passionate about; and with Secure Work Space, Android for Work, and Samsung KNOX management capabilities made possible by BES12, we can really put our money where our mouth is.”
As more people and businesses opt for Android devices, the need for consistent productivity grows. BlackBerry plans to stay on top of everything by frequently curating the website with cutting-edge articles and reports.
BlackBerry open to the possibility of creating Android smartphone
Although BlackBerry’s new website is not directly related to the Android smartphone the company is rumored to be working on, the tech giant’s CEO, John Chen, claimed they planned to roll out their own Android phone if they could make the device secure. In June, there was a report of BlackBerry working on its first Android smartphone called Venice. The rumored smartphone reportedly looked similar to the BlackBerry Passport and featured an 18-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front camera, a 5.4-inch QHD display, a 1.8GHz hexa-core 64-bit Snapdragon 808 SoC, and 3GB of RAM.
The new BlackBerry website includes a list of videos and content from other sources on Android security issues that are relevant for businesses. The BlackBerry-created content demonstrates the company’s dedication to serving enterprise customers. And as expected on most websites, the company created social-friendly buttons for Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest to make sharing content easier.
