As part of the strategy to make its devices more secure than those made by competing handset makers, BlackBerry plans to establish the “Security Innovation Center” in Washington, D.C.
The idea is not new and has been initially unveiled by CEO John Chen during the company’s recent quarterly results. At that time, Chen said that BlackBerry is “going back to its roots,” focusing on the enterprise market, as well as a number of different government agencies.
