Are you a BlackBerry user who is concerned about the recent increase in data breaches and hacks? The BlackBerry brand has remained popular since the early 2000s and millions of people worldwide still rely on devices such as the BlackBerry Bold for their business and personal needs.
If you are a business owner using your BlackBerry to communicate private data to clients, make sure your device is secure. Your private business information could be worth lots of money on the black market. The good news is that BlackBerry makes it easy to encrypt your data, and there is lots of software available that can help make the encryption process easier for you.
This is probably the most widely used software for encrypting data on BlackBerry devices. Its military-grade software has helped many users to protect their data and to converse through email in total anonymity. Want to upgrade your security measures?
