In response to the risks of hacking of data present in smartphones and the possibilities of listening to conversations by intelligence agencies, the company Boeing presented the smartphone at the start of the year Boeing black under Android but exploiting an architecture Boeing PureSecure made of hardware and software protections.
The smartphone targets government agencies and combines a mixture of data encryption solutions, security modules (Trusted modules) and modularity via a connector making it possible to add an element such as satellite connectivity.
If the Boeing Black is based on an Android platform, it claims enhanced security. And this armor has probably just found a reinforcement with the announcement of the support of the platform BES 12 ((BlackBerry Enterprise Services) from the Canadian BlackBerry.
BES 12 makes it possible to manage fleets of mobile devices and to apply security policies defined by companies according to their needs. The platform is now able to manage all large mobile OS and can be adapted to corporate networks as to the specifics of the BYOD ((Bring Your Own Device).
No doubt this know-how will be highlighted in the presentation of the Boeing Black which joins several initiatives to create smartphones supposed to present a level of security higher than the average.
