RIM has good news

Written by Nick Farrell



Gets security clearance


Troubled smartphone maker Research In Motion has won a US government security clearance for its BlackBerry 10 devices.

The gear, which has been delivered late, will hit the shelves in the first quarter of 2013. The company said its BlackBerry 10 platform has received the FIPS 140-2 certification, which means government agencies can deploy it  along with the new enterprise management platform to run the devices.

RIM, is now betting the farm entirely on the long-awaited line of so-called BB 10 devices. Last month, RIM said it had begun carrier tests on the new line of devices, but this is the first time BlackBerry products have been FIPS certified ahead of launch. FIPS certification,  is given by the National Institute of Standards and Technology, is one of the minimum criteria that is required for products used by US government agencies and regulated industries that collect, store, transfer, share and disseminate sensitive information.

RIM promises that BlackBerry 10 will deliver a better user experience, along with the ability to separately manage both one's corporate and personal data on the same device.
