Through the solution offered by Microsoft and BlackBerry, they will be able to seamlessly use native Microsoft mobile apps via BlackBerry Dynamics apps such as BlackBerry Work for instance.

While using it, users will get the chance to share documents while document fidelity and data encryption remain preserved. It’s also important to note that data leakage policies will be applied.
