BlackBerry Limited (NYSE:BB)(TSX:BB) announced Saka Energi, a national oil and gas company, is deploying BlackBerry Unified Endpoint Manager (UEM), to increase operational efficiency and enable its management, staff, and clients to securely share information regardless of time and location. The deployment of BlackBerry UEM by Saka Energi is a result of a new channel partnership with PT PGAS Telekomunikasi Nusantara (PGASCOM), a subsidiary of PT Perusahaan Gas Negara (Persero) Tbk (PGN).
Saka Energi sought a solution to increase workforce productivity within a trusted mobile environment, that maintained security from any kind of threat, especially cyberattacks. BlackBerry UEM is enabling the company to increase the convenience of mobile working, maintain security, and reduce its operational burden.
Tumbur Parlindungan, CEO of Saka Energi said, “As part of our digital transformation strategy, we need to mobilize our workforce and drive satisfaction as well as efficiencies in our business, with the peace of mind that we are protecting sensitive business information and keeping our people safe. We chose BlackBerry UEM and PGASCOM because together, they can provide information confidentiality at every level, with the integration support and expertise that truly understands the complexity of our business.”
Alex Manea, BlackBerry’s Chief Security Officer, speaking at Cybersecurity Indonesia in Jakarta this week, says, “The energy sector is one of the largest industries in Indonesia and therefore, among the most targeted by cybercrime. We are excited to partner with PGASCOM, combining our secure solutions with their expertise to help Saka Energi and other companies to deliver on their digital transformation goals. This partnership demonstrates our commitment to helping Indonesian enterprises be ‘BlackBerry Secure’ by providing solutions and local knowledge to protect against cyber-attacks – ultimately creating safer working environments that drive efficiency, productivity and innovation.”
