“Its recent acquisition of AtHoc and last year's acquisition of SecuSmart show the company is also investing in solutions with vertical-specific appeal, an important strategy to retain existing customers and gain new ones in those regulated industries.”
“The ability to integrate mobile devices, PCs and IoT devices into a unified emergency communication system syncs with BlackBerry’s overall strategy around IoT, security/safety, and interconnectedcommunications/telemetry.”
