With the recent introduction of GDPR (General Data Protection Regulations) in the European Union, there has been a lot of focus on data privacy and security. And it’s not just about data collection, it’s about what information you keep, how you access it, where you keep it, how you share it, how you delete it, how you process it, and how you move/transfer/edit it.

With this in mind, many companies have been performing audits of their devices and software to ensure that this data is protected, and audits on the data itself to see if the information is necessary.

These new regulations, and the resulting focus of consumers on their data privacy and protection, combined with the resurgence of global security threats, and high profile instances of cyber hacking and corporate data breaches, have meant that we are all looking for added protection and support from our devices and software.

Blackberry Workspaces enables you to work safer, without compromising on productivity or collaboration. You can securely store, share, collaborate and control your corporate IP without moving files into the cloud, which can be time consuming and costly.

The industry-leading Digital Rights Management (DRM) technology travels with every file, which is protected by 256-bit encryption and can only be accessed by authorised users, meaning administrators can control everything a user can do with a file, even after it’s downloaded.

At the same time, individuals or groups can be allowed access (or restricted), with security rules that can be set to different levels, in order to allow Workspaces to operate as a secure access portal for collaboration. In this way, you can even collaborate with external users without any risk.

Workspace tracks all file activity – what was accessed, when, where, by who, on which device, and what activity was performed  – with this information being easily available in report form to administrators.

Documents can be edited in the app or on the device, and there are additional add-on products that can be incorporated to provide a seamless and secure experience.
