BlackBerry's bullish assessment that BES 12 marks its return as a major player in the enterprise mobility market, including a focus on the Internet of Things, caught the eyes of V3 readers last week.
V3 attended a briefing with BlackBerry’s enterprise chief, John Sims, who said the firm was back on track after several years of confusion and doubt over the company’s future.
While BlackBerry is looking for stability, the mobile market looks set to undergo a period of intense activity.
BT is in talks to purchase mobile operator O2 in an effort to return to the mobile market. EE also confirmed that it has spoken with BT about a potential purchase.
Meanwhile, in the security world the discovery of the Regin malware sent shockwaves through the community with the revelation that the advanced attack tool could have been developed by Western intelligence agencies.
The malware is just the latest example of sophisticated software being created by governments for nefarious purposes. Regin appears to be spyware that enables its creators to gather information from infected machines.
