BlackBerry states in 2014 that they are interested in the wearable market, but they have not partnered with Vuzix, to release their smart glasses. Vuzix will be providing the hardware, while BlackBerry is working on software to keep all the data secure.
Vuzix M300 is powered by BlackBerry UEM, a trusted, secure and scalable platform that supports all major operating systems and enables customers to connect and manage wearable enterprise devices alongside other devices such as smartphones, tablets and laptops.
“We are excited to partner with BlackBerry, a global leader in secure operating systems, mobile communications and mobile device management to deliver secure and simple applications to BlackBerry’s enterprise customers built around the Vuzix M300 Smart Glasses”, said Paul Travers, President and CEO of Vuzix.
“As more and more devices and connection points emerge, IT departments are tasked with not only ensuring data and information are secure, but also providing a unified workspace for employees,” said Mark Wilson, SVP and Chief Evangelist, BlackBerry. “We’re excited to partner with Vuzix to provide an innovative solution that will improve productivity and most importantly help keep people and information safe.”
