Since March 2016, enterprises have been able to install and manage their "BES12" deployment through the Microsoft Azure platform.This means customers have full access to their BES12 licenses while benefiting from the Microsoft cloud architecture - without having to invest in their own IT infrastructure. Good Dynamics is also tightly integrated with BES12 for secure holistic end-to-end capabilities and is available in the Good Secure EMM Suites from BlackBerry.

With Good Dynamics in Microsoft Azure, businesses in emerging enterprise cloud environments can leverage enhanced security to ensure critical business data is never put at risk.

"As we work side-by-side with Microsoft we are providing customers with a breadth of new options to enhance and increase their mobile security," said Billy Ho, Executive Vice President, Enterprise Product and Value Added Solutions, BlackBerry. "By utilizing Good Dynamics through the Microsoft Azure cloud platform, customers have more flexibility in their deployment of BlackBerry´s industry-leading solutions - without having to sacrifice user experience or introduce more complexity into their environments," he added.
