BlackBerry Limited has announced that it is collaborating with the Government of Canada to modernize their operations centers during G7 ministerial meetings and the 2018 G7 Summit.
Using BlackBerry AtHoc, a crisis communication platform that includes AtHoc Alert for mass notification and AtHoc Collect for field reports, the operations centers are able to efficiently mobilize and secure the flow of critical information by delivering updates to targeted lists of recipients in real-time.
“We are honored that the Government of Canada has chosen BlackBerry to support their operations,” said Sanjay Saini, SVP and GM, BlackBerry AtHoc. “Whether in times of crisis or during a high-profile event like the G7 Summit, reliable and secure communications are crucial. BlackBerry AtHoc technology enables real-time information exchange across organizations, their people and devices, providing them with the necessary details to make informed and safety-critical decisions.”
Additionally, BlackBerry is one of the companies that has been selected to demonstrate its innovative solutions at the 2018 G7 Innovation Showcase.
Many G7 government departments and agencies, including the Parliament of Canada, U.S. Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Department of Defense and New Zealand Parliamentary Service, trust BlackBerry software to keep them safe and secure.
