Blackberry Ltd. will now be able to provide its mobile device cybersecurity technology to the United States government. The company said in a Thursday release that its multi-platform encryption technology, known as SecuSuite and also available to the Canadian government, will be available to the U.S. government to encrypt voice calls and text messages and safeguard those conversations against electronic eavesdropping. It has received support from the National Security Agency’s (NSA) National Information Assurance Partnership to sell the service. “Call tapping is happening at an alarming rate,” Alex Thurber, senior vice-president and general manager of BlackBerry mobility solutions, said in the release. “In today's connected world, restricting agency employees to only exchange classified information from the desk phone is no longer a viable option, but it could be the new reality if governments don't start securing calls and texts from mobile devices.” The service will work on all networks and supports Apple Inc.’s iOS and Alphabet Inc.’s Android operating systems and will work on BlackBerry 10 smartphones and tablets, the release noted. The company said more than 20 governments around the world use its SecuSuite service. In 2014, the company bought Secusmart GmbH, a German company specializing in communications security and encryption. The following year, it released a highly secure tablet intended for public sector use. Last year, Facebook Inc.’s WhatsApp encrypted all messages on its messaging platform.
