    Secure, Protected, and Connected: BlackBerry 10 Achieves Government-Grade Security Certification | Inside BlackBerry

    Just a heads up, that blog article has been retrieved from the memory hole and put back up. I'm assuming the 10.3.3 rollout is real as of 2205, instead of 2049 or 2163. That means there's a live BlackBerry blog post and blog comments from employees detailing which devices are/aren't getting 10.3.3.

    Where it substantially differs is this paragraph:

    The latest version of BlackBerry 10 has passed the strictest government-grade security tests to achieve certification under the National Information Assurance Partnership. NIAP manages the evaluation of technology that adheres to the highest security standards in the U.S. as well as the international Common Criteria standards. NIAP approval for BB 10.3.3 means we’re now better-equipped than ever to support government, enterprise, and regulated customers who require the highest levels of protection for critical data.
    NIAP will award the following Commercial Solutions for Classified (CSfC) level certifications to BB 10.3.3 for:
    Mobile Device Protection Profile
    IPSec VPN Client Protection Profile
    Mobile Device Management Agent Protection Profile
    The latest version of BlackBerry 10 has achieved Common Criteria certification in conformance with the National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP) Protection Profile for Mobile Device Fundamentals v2.0 and the NIAP Extended Package for Mobile Device Management Agents v2.0.
    Common Criteria certification for BB 10.3.3 means we’re now better-equipped than ever to support governments, enterprises, and regulated customers who require the highest levels of protection for critical data.
    And it adds a link to this: https://www.niap-ccevs.org/Product/C...CCID=2017.1002

    Yes, the NIAP certification came on January 9, well after the 10.3.3 rollout started.

    And in case it gets yanked again, fresh mirrors:

    Very interesting. Thanks for noticing the differences in the blog posts. There may be a silver lining here. This being that BB10 may stay around for some time as it will probably be a long while before BlackBerry gets their hardened Android Nougat NIAP certified.

    Who is pushing Android on you? No one can force you to use a platform you don't want to use.

    Because the future of blackberry software is android. Who knows how long they'll maintain or provide security fixes for bb10. They can't make you switch and if you're happy stay with bb10.

    I don't care what blackberry future is, only care about my security, and that isn't in android so I'll ride the bb10 car until it breaks down then I'm off to. Ubuntu phone or windows.

    +1 I don't know what it will be, but my sentiment is the same.
