BlackBerry updates SecuSUITE to secure phone calls from eavesdropping

BlackBerry has announced that its SecuSUITE for Government offering now provides certified end-to-end encryption of all group phone calls and instant messages for governments and enterprises alike.

As a result of the global pandemic, millions of employees are working from home, with many teams turning to group calling methods to ensure business continuity. However, enterprises and government officials around the world are increasingly being targeted by coordinated eavesdropping attacks. SecuSUITE protects these individuals against identity spoofing, metadata harvesting and communications interceptions, which can compromise sensitive discussions and major operations.

David Wiseman, Vice President Secure Communications at BlackBerry, said SecuSUITE is a huge advantage for governments and organisations that are distributed internationally and require top secret-grade encryption for their communications. “We are delighted to now offer secure group calling in a system that is certified by NIAP and NSA CSfC,” said Wiseman.

With a global track record for providing certified, true end-to-end encrypted solutions for Android and iOS, SecuSUITE for Government technology protects 18 governments worldwide against electronic eavesdropping, from unclassified through to Top Secret clearance levels. SecuSUITE is certified in accordance with the Common Criteria, assuring government agencies of the security of their mobile communications. Kerry Leo, Senior Vice President at CACI International, said the continued development of new features by BlackBerry for the SecuSUITE software enables CACI to deliver new capability to the SteelBox cloud service.

“The new group calling feature is already being used today by US federal civilian, Department of Defence and Intelligence Community customers to communicate securely with groups of users on an encrypted call from anywhere across the globe. CACI’s partnership with BlackBerry enables the technology innovations that our customers rely on for mission success,” said Leo.
