BlackBerry Limited announced a technology integration between Okta, Inc.’s Identity Cloud and BlackBerry Spark unified endpoint management.

Many organizations are struggling to embrace the new work-from-anywhere world. The crux of this issue is ensuring employees can work both seamlessly and securely from any device and any location. The integration of Okta and BlackBerry UEM enables organizations to make the authentication experience frictionless, optimize workforce productivity and maintain the highest security posture. Identity authentication is a foundational component of an organization’s zero trust strategy.

BlackBerry UEM, a comprehensive endpoint management solution with industry-leading security, enables employee productivity across an organization’s devices, applications, users, and use cases. BlackBerry UEM is used by many of the world’s largest organizations, including governments, financial services, healthcare, and more. The solution has the most government certifications in the industry, including FedRAMP, NIAP, DoDIN APL, and NSA CSfC.

“BlackBerry UEM gives employees the flexibility to work from anywhere, and organizations the confidence their corporate data is always protected,” said Alex Willis, Vice President of Technical Solutions, BlackBerry. “We are delighted to partner with Okta, a leading provider of identity management, to deliver advanced security and a superior employee experience to our customers around the world.”

“Organizations no longer have to choose between productivity and security as they arm their workforce with the digital tools they need,” said Lee Tschetter, Director of Technical Strategy, Okta. “We are pleased to partner with BlackBerry to offer our mutual customers an integrated, best-in-class solution for their identity and access management needs.”
