BlackBerry and Google launch Chrome Enterprise Management with BlackBerry UEM

WATERLOO, ON, May 27, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — BlackBerry Limited (NYSE: BB; TSX: BB) today announced the launch of Chrome Enterprise Management with BlackBerry UEM, providing the full suite of Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) support for the growing number of devices running the popular Google (NASDAQ: GOOGL) Chrome OS and Chrome browser in enterprises.

The new integration increases BlackBerry UEM’s Serviceable Available Market (SAM) with Chrome Enterprise devices quickly gaining popularity as a cost-effective, competitive solution for business executives, their tech teams and employees, now backed by BlackBerry UEM’s industry leading security. Additionally, the new BlackBerry UEM integration is featured on Google’s Chrome Enterprise Recommended  program that helps enterprises select validated partner solutions and integrations that support their workforce, wherever they work and the devices they choose to use.

“We see increasing adoption of Google Chrome and Chrome OS devices amongst our enterprise customers. In addition to existing support for BlackBerry apps on Chrome devices, businesses were calling for remote management capabilities to enforce policy settings and raise security levels. Working hand-in-hand with Google, our UEM solution is better equipped than ever to keep employees connected and protected so they can work from practically any device, anywhere,” said Billy Ho, Executive VP, Cybersecurity Product at BlackBerry.

“As enterprises deploy more modern, cloud-centric endpoints such as Chromebooks, smartphones and tablets as primary computing devices, they’re also looking to centralize all management and security of these endpoints,” said Phil Hochmuth, VP, endpoint management and enterprise mobility, IDC. “Tools that help integrate newer technologies such as Chrome OS into established endpoint management and security frameworks will be critical to the success of these deployments.”
