New Pentagon Mobile Management System will have 80,000 BlackBerry Devices

The Pentagon will be launching a new system with the intention of securing different smartphones for its network at the end of January. This new system will be primarily supporting BlackBerry devices, according to Defense Department officials. A press release issued this past week, states “the Program supports 80,000 BlackBerry phones,” which make up 98% of the total of smartphones in the system. The move comes a few months after BlackBerry 10 was originally given “authority to operate” on DoD networks back in August of last year.

BlackBerry shares rose more than nine per cent on Monday, after the smartphone company received a vote of confidence from the U.S. Department of Defense.
