Secure Manufacturing: Security starts with the manufacturing process and stays with your Punkt. MP02 from that point forward. When you boot up, each hardware and software component is validated to ensure no one has tampered with your device. Then your device is continuously monitored for events or changes that indicate a compromise to device security. BlackBerry achieve this by establishing a remotely-managed, secure workstation (via a dedicated secure connection) at the manufacturing plant.
BlackBerry Integrity Detection: The MP02 is continuously monitored for events or configuration changes that indicate a compromise to device security. The user is alerted if a threat is detected.
TrustZone: A trusted execution environment guarantees the protection of sensitive data on the MP02.
Secure Boot - When you boot up, each hardware and software component is validated to ensure your device has not been tampered with.
