BlackBerry™ Set to Launch New Operating System

BlackBerry™ Set to Launch New Operating System

Last Night Blackberry™ took to their twitter page to announce the

launching of iOS11 ,the announcement was posted as a link which was

directed to this below

""BlackBerry™ has always been an inventor and innovator, way out ahead

of the curve. We began patenting secure mobile communications in the

mid-80s, and we were making smartphones long before they were glued to

all our palms.

Today, we are focused on cybersecurity because we see a physical world

connected by billions of endpoints where nothing is safe when even a

single node is unprotected. We are pushing for a transformation across

our industry – and every industry – to design security into every

product and service from the ground up. It's why we were ready for the

announcement of iOS 11 on Day Zero with an update to our BlackBerry

Enterprise Mobility Suite that ensures secure communications for our

enterprise customers.

Being ahead of the curve in technology and elsewhere is a winning

strategy, but it sometimes means you'll have to endure skeptics and

critics along the way. Take the "swipe-up" feature that is coming in

iOS 11. We introduced that innovation 4 years ago with our BB10

devices, and it was controversial to say the least.

Now, it looks poised to become a standard UI feature. Or take c|net's

recent story about hacking a smart tea kettle…we showed that hack off

about a year ago at our Security Summit

(scroll ahead to 3:00 in the video below).

Two years ago, we showed how hackers could exploit a medical infusion

pump to tamper with patient drug doses. Just last month, a similar

vulnerability forced a recall on nearly half a million pace-makers.

Experts predict that the Enterprise of Things –smart, connected

devices that are helping businesses and governments become more

productive – is expected to grow to 19.9 billion devices by the year

2020. Such EoT devices, including weight sensors that automatically

transmit back inventory information to databases, to connected cars,

to the aforementioned medical devices, are expected to dwarf consumer

IoT gadgets by a ratio of 4:1.

Making the EoT secure and safe is a huge challenge and opportunity.

Which is why BlackBerry's attention is devoted 100% in this area.

This fall, BlackBerry is planning two Security Summit events: an Oct.

24-25 event in London, and one Nov. 14-15 in New York City.

We've expanded them into two-day events to accommodate our growing

ecosystem of enterprise developers and channel partners and the focus

remains on delivering cutting-edge knowledge to help enterprises

secure themselves in an increasingly insecure world.

And of course you can bet that we're planning something on-stage this

year that's just as compelling and forward thinking as we've been in

the past. Perhaps this year we might even get the appropriate credit.

Whether you're a developer, reseller, IT decision- maker, or just

curious to see what we have up our sleeves, you are invited to

register for one of our Security Summits this fall.""
