Additionally, the BlackBerry Government Solutions U.S.-based and U.S. citizen-staffed Security Operations and Compliance teams will manage the FedRAMP continuous monitoring and remediation program, reducing the amount of time that Agencies spend to ensure their mobility program meets Federal cybersecurity requirements.
