Telefónica’s enterprise arm has joined the Riverbed Performance Partner Program, while BlackBerry has launched an offering that encrypts voice and messaging from mobile devices.

Telefónica Business Solutions said it wanted to improve its application aware network offering, which allows enterprises to have end-to-end application visibility and superior application performance across the network through optimisation technologies, plus control and management of applications in hybrid WAN architectures.

It said that while hybrid architectures and SaaS tools offer significant benefits to enterprises, the confluence of multiple clouds, networks, service providers, and SLAs, plus end users in multiple locations using a wide variety of applications, created a number of challenges.

The Spain-based operator said it had chosen to join up with Riverbed as its Application Performance Platform provided CIOs with “unparalleled” visibility to deliver, optimise and control all IT resources.

The US-based tech company said 26,000 companies use its platform.

Miguel Ángel Garcia, Country Manager, Spain and Portugal at Riverbed Technology, said: “Peak performance for the hybrid enterprise – where apps, data and people are everywhere – requires a new, holistic, global approach to IT.

“Riverbed and its partners are focused on giving global organisations an extensible application performance platform, providing the flexibility to host applications and data in optimal locations while ensuring a high-performing workplace in any location.”

Meanwhile, BlackBerry launched SecuSUITE for Enterprise – a VoIP, software-based, cloud-hosted solution that protects mobile calls and messaging.

SecuSUITE, which can be used on iOS, Android and BlackBerry 10 operating systems, encrypts voice and text messages with 128-bit Advanced Encryption Standard.

It builds on the existing SecuSUITE for Government solution as Blackberry aims to increase its relevance to businesses.

Secusmart CEO Dr Hans-Christoph Quelle said: Thanks to the globally secure BlackBerry infrastructure, governments – and now, companies – around the world can protect themselves from the threat of corporate espionage using flexible and extremely effective encryption technology ‘Made in Germany’.
