CESG Approves BlackBerry 7.1 OS for Government Use

London, UK Research In Motion (RIM) (NASDAQ: RIMM; TSX: RIM) today announced that the BlackBerry 7.1 operating system has been approved for UK government use by CESG, the National Technical Authority for Information Assurance in the UK.

The approval enables public sector workers to utilize the enhanced performance and rich functionality of the latest BlackBerry smartphones available in the UK.

The BlackBerry Enterprise Solution from RIM is the only mobile solution approved by CESG to protect data classified up to and including Restricted when configured in accordance with CESG guidance. According to a recent research study from Strategy Analytics*, the BlackBerry Enterprise Solution not only provides the most secure mobile platform but also the lowest total cost of ownership (TCO) for mobile deployments. The study considered typical industry best practices, using the UK government as an example.

Scott Totzke, SVP, BlackBerry Security Group, RIM, said, As we have seen from the recent Strategy Analytics report, the BlackBerry Enterprise Solution remains unique in that it not only delivers the highest level of security for government customers, but also the lowest total cost of ownership in the industry.

It s a compelling proposition that has seen our solution widely deployed across UK public sector organisations, including the NHS, local government bodies, the Ministry of Defence (MoD), most of Central Government and over half of the UK s police forces.

The CESG approval of the BlackBerry 7.1 OS enables our valued government customers to allow their employees to take advantage of the enhanced features and improved services offered by the latest iteration of the BlackBerry operating system.

The BlackBerry Enterprise Solution has delivered benefits at many levels in public sector organisations, including significant cost savings, greater workforce efficiencies and, in turn, an improved service to citizens.

For example, by extending core processes and systems to frontline officers, UK police forces using BlackBerry smartphones have been able to reduce the time officers are required to spend at their desks, enabling them to spend more time policing the streets.

Furthermore, a number of police forces are using the BlackBerry smartphone apps for Twitter and Facebook to change the way they engage with local communities to deliver enhanced frontline policing.

BlackBerry 7.1 OS smartphones currently available in the UK and covered by the new approval from CESG include the BlackBerry Bold 9900, BlackBerry Bold 9790, BlackBerry Torch 9860, BlackBerry Torch 9810, BlackBerry Curve 9380, BlackBerry Curve 9360, BlackBerry Curve 9320 and Porsche Design P 9981 from BlackBerry smartphones.

and that OS10 Press release

BlackBerry 10 Receives FIPS Security Certification Ahead of LaunchWaterloo, ON Research In Motion (RIM) (NASDAQ: RIMM, TSX: RIM) today announced that the BlackBerry 10 platform is now FIPS 140-2 certified. The certification will enable government agencies to deploy BlackBerry 10 smartphones and BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10, RIM s new mobile enterprise management solution, from the day of launch. This is the first time BlackBerry products have been FIPS certified ahead of launch.

FIPS (Federal Information Processing Standard) certification provides confidence to security-conscious organizations, including U.S.

and Canadian government agencies, companies in regulated industries and other organizations dealing with sensitive information, that data stored on smartphones running BlackBerry 10 can be properly secured and encrypted.

Achieving FIPS 140-2 certification means that BlackBerry 10 is ready to meet the strict security requirements of government agencies and enterprises at launch, said Michael K. Brown, Vice President, Security Product Management and Research at RIM. What differentiates BlackBerry is that it integrates end-to-end security, and includes certified encryption algorithms for data at rest and data in transit.

No other mobile solution has achieved the level of security accreditation that the BlackBerry solution has.

FIPS 140 is issued by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to coordinate the requirements and standards for certifying cryptographic modules. The standard was developed through the Cryptographic Module Validation Program (CMVP), which certifies products for use by U.S. government agencies and regulated industries that collect, store, transfer, share and disseminate sensitive information.

Product certifications under the CMVP are performed in accordance with the requirements of FIPS 140-2. It is supported by the Communications Security Establishment (CSE) for the Canadian government.

IDC expects the mobile enterprise security market to experience a high rate of growth from 2012 to 2016, said Stacy Crook, Program Manager for Mobile Enterprise research at IDC. Maintaining the BlackBerry solution s reputation for security while introducing an enhanced user experience gives BlackBerry 10 the opportunity to be a highly competitive platform in the government, enterprise and consumer sectors.

BlackBerry products and solutions are protected by best-in-class AES 256-bit encryption, a highly secure, internationally recognized data protection standard.

In addition to FIPS certifications, BlackBerry products have continuously passed rigorous security assessments from a variety of other independent organizations around the world. The BlackBerry Enterprise Solution is the first mobile platform to achieve Common Criteria Certification, a standard recognized by 26 countries, as well as the first to receive approval through the CESG Assisted Product Scheme (CAPS), the National Technical Authority for Information Assurance in the United Kingdom. BlackBerry 7 smartphones meet Common Criteria security assurance level EAL 4+.

The BlackBerry PlayBook is the first FIPS certified tablet for deployment within U.S.

federal government agencies and certified for use by the Defence Signals Directorate of the Australian Government.

Achieving FIPS certification for an entirely new platform in a very short period of time, and before launch, is quite remarkable and a testament to the dedication of our security team, said David MacFarlane, Director, Security Certifications at RIM.

BlackBerry 10 will deliver security, a superior user experience, the ability to separately manage corporate and personal data on the same device, and ease of manageability for IT managers in an enterprise or government environment.
