BlackBerry has signed a technology and brand licensing deal for “BlackBerry Secure” with Swiss consumer electronics maker, Punkt Tronics for IoT (Internet of Things).
The new agreement enables Punkt to market a range of highly-secure products which will embed BlackBerry cyber security technology, be certified as BlackBerry Secure, and be shipped ready to safely and securely connect to home and enterprise networks.
Alex Thurber, SVP and GM of Mobility Solutions, BlackBerry said, “With cybersecurity becoming a concern for every household and enterprise, savvy manufacturers like Punkt are recognizing the value of protecting the integrity of their innovations and the resonance our brand has with consumers who are increasingly anxious about the security of the products they choose to bring into their homes and lives.”
Petter Neby, CEO & Founder, Punkt said, “By incorporating BlackBerry’s security technology into our premium products, we can now offer customers the highest level of security, without compromising on the simple, modern design they love.”
