黑莓不再为PRIV提供月度Android安全更新 同时再提供BB10和BBOS系统至少两年的支持

安全性与物理全键盘一直是黑莓手机的产品特性之一,即便在转战Android平台之后,黑莓依然推出得有配备了实体键盘的机型,而且每个月都在第一时间为设备推出补丁,修复安全漏洞。不过对于黑莓发布的首款Android手机PRIV而言,该机将不再享受到月度安全补丁更新。

停止为PRIV提供每月安全更新,但会在有重大漏洞时通过合作伙伴提供对应补丁。
再为BB10和BBOS提供至少两年的额外支持。
黑莓官方应用商店BlackBerry World app store服务截止日期为 (2019年12月31)。
黑莓BlackBerry Travel 服务截止时间为 (2018年2月)。
黑莓 Playbook video calling service视频通话服务截止时间为 ( 2018年3月)。

黑莓手机在制造过程中在硬件写入安全密钥,在启动系统时将会验证硬件写入的安全密钥进行核对,另外黑莓利用“安全启动(secure boot)”技术确保在操作系统之前不会加载恶意软件,并防止操作系统“降级(downgraded)”到不太安全的版本或被Root。黑莓为Android系统机型提供月度的安全更新。这一些只为确保用户的信息安全,也让黑莓安卓手机产品成为世界上最安全的安卓系统手机

blackberry priv手机Blackberry PRIV 是黑莓公司推出的首款Android系统黑莓手机,在PRIV发布之初黑莓公司就承诺在未来两年时间将为这款机型每月都会提供系统安全更新,目前黑莓已完成这一承诺

  不过黑莓也表示,如果有关键漏洞暴露出来,他们将根据需要透过合作伙伴来开发和提供必要的漏洞补丁。黑莓还透露,将与BlackberryMobile合作伙伴合作,面向当前的黑莓Priv用户以及BB10或BBOS系统的用户推出一个升级激励计划,让他们可以以折扣价买到新款的黑莓手机,比如Keyone或者Motion。
  另外,黑莓还证实将继续为BB10和BBOS提供至少两年的支持,这绝对是个好消息,不过也有坏消息,该公司表示,他们将关闭BB10以及BBOS上的BlackBerry World应用商店、BlackBerry Travel site以及Playbook视频通话服务。

blackberry10黑莓公司在发布首款Android系统黑莓手机PRIV后,就再没推出过BB10和BBOS系统新机型,从目前的各种信息来看黑莓未来也不会再推出新的BB10和BBOS机型,黑莓最新公告称将为BB10和BBOS提供至少两年的支持,这多少算是安慰下长期使用黑莓支持黑莓的老莓友…

  黑莓表示,他们为黑莓Android手机专门调教了系统,使其足够安全,免受黑客攻击。因此,即便黑莓不再提供更安全更新支持,PRIV用户也不必担忧。

Status of PRIV Monthly Updates

As I recently wrote, BlackBerry phones are the world’s most secure Android smartphones because we’ve designed security into every possible piece of the software that runs them.

We inject security keys during manufacturing to make sure that you have genuine hardware.  We utilize “secure boot” technology to make sure that no malware loads before the operating system and to prevent the operating system from being “downgraded” to a less secure version.  We make modifications throughout the Android operating system “stack” to not only harden it, but also to have “triggers” that help identify if there is an attempt to hack the software, you are alerted.

BlackBerry locks down capabilities in the Android OS that could give attackers the opportunity to compromise your device, and our software provides a secure environment that makes it difficult for attackers to find vulnerabilities or perform attacks.

The modifications we make to Android, long before the device is ever used, provide more durable security and require far fewer patches than non-BlackBerry smartphones.

When we introduced our first Android device more than 24 months ago, we committed to delivering 2 years of monthly software updates for the PRIV.  True to our word, we fulfilled this commitment though in truth, the PRIV’s built-in security posture had little need for many of the updates we delivered in conjunction with partners such as Google and Qualcomm.

Having now stepped outside the original 2-year window, we will no longer be delivering monthly updates for the PRIV moving forward. That said, we continue to support our loyal users as follows:

First, we will of course fulfill all warranty obligations for the PRIV.

Second, as outlined above we believe our phones are inherently more secure because of the way they’ve been designed with security features from the inside out.

Third, should a critical vulnerability be exposed we will engage our partners as needed to develop and deliver necessary patches.

Fourth, we are thrilled to announce that with our partners at BlackBerry Mobile we will soon be introducing a trade-up program for current BlackBerry customers who are still using the PRIV as well as those holding onto BB10 and BBOS devices. Stay tuned for details and get ready to upgrade to a BlackBerry KeyOne or Motion, the most secure Android smartphones on the planet.

 

Supporting BB10 and BBOS Customers and Rewarding Your Loyalty

A little more than a year ago BlackBerry Executive Chairman and CEO, John Chen, declared that BlackBerry’s transition to a software company was complete. And still, in an era where consumers have been “trained” to upgrade their phones every 18-24 months, it is a testament to the durability of our designs and brand loyalty that there are still millions of people actively using BB10 and BBOS devices, many of which are already more than ten years old.

We manufactured our last BB10 and BBOS devices in 2015 and in the years since we have received many questions about our plans for ongoing support. First, we want to say thank you for your continued interest and passion for all things BlackBerry. Second, we want to acknowledge that we know your productivity relies upon the security, reliability, dependability, durability, extended battery life, and ease-of-use we designed and built into each handset. Third, we want to reward your loyalty by committing to providing you with at least two full years of additional support for BB10 and at least two full years of BlackBerry network access for BBOS devices.

As a further show of our appreciation and gratitude, we are working with our partners at BlackBerry Mobile to offer a trade-up program that will provide you with a significant discount and incentive to upgrade your current BlackBerry device to a new BlackBerry KeyOne or Motion, both of which are the world’s most secure Android smartphones.

While we are pleased to announce continuing support for BB10 and BBOS users for at least another two years, current device owners should be aware that we will be closing some ancillary services such as the BlackBerry World app store (12/31/2019), the BlackBerry Travel site (February 2018), and the Playbook video calling service (March 2018). Customers who upgrade to a new KeyOne or Motion won’t miss a beat as they’ll have immediate access to the rich universe of apps in the Google Play store without compromising on either security or their desire for a physical keyboard.

Stay tuned to this site for details on how to take advantage of the trade-up program and we look forward to your continuing loyalty and interest in BlackBerry. Thank you.
