BlackBerry Workspaces

BlackBerry Workspaces, also known as Watchdox Blackberry, delivers file-level security for documents inside and outside of an organization’s corporate firewall. IT and users can create shared workspaces for internal and external users to collaborate, sign, mark up, and comment within files from the BlackBerry secure browser.
The 256-bit encryption provides a layer of protection to all data, and users can access the platform on Windows, Apple, and Android operating systems for maximum flexibility.
Access is enabled on a permission basis according to the user level, and compliance logs are recorded at the document level to track usage and permissions for that file.

What is BlackBerry Workspaces best at?

BlackBerry Workspaces virtual data room is all about file-level security, which is offered in three editions for storing, syncing, and sharing files and folders:

  • Send
  • Collaborate
  • Secure Plus

All editions are available to be billed either on monthly or annual terms. 
BlackBerry Workspaces data room also address the threats of ransomware, malware, and other cyber-attack forms by enabling systems administrators with the centralized ability to recover files. The access point accounts affected by malware can be frozen, and IT can isolate the afflicted files.
This solution eradicates the need to pay out ransoms to attackers because it allows for files and folders to be restored to the pre-attack environment. In addition, this solution also enables user productivity to continue while the IT administrators carry out diagnostic work in the background.
