BlackBerry Limited today announced that BlackBerry Radar®, the company’s intelligent, data-driven asset monitoring solution purpose-built for the transportation industry, is now available for purchase in AWS Marketplace, a curated digital catalog with thousands of software listings from independent software vendors that makes it easy to find, test, buy, and deploy software on Amazon Web Services (AWS).
BlackBerry Radar is an easy-to-install, asset monitoring solution for trailers, chassis and containers that provides near real-time information around location, cargo status, motion, mileage, temperature, humidity, and door open/close status through an intuitive on-line dashboard. All data is transmitted and stored securely on a cloud platform, which maintains the privacy of user information at all times.
Providing fleet owners with unparalleled visibility into their operations to reduce costs and improve asset utilization, the addition of Radar to the Marketplace marks a further expansion of BlackBerry’s offerings on AWS, which already includes BlackBerry’s AI-Driven Endpoint Protection Platform, CylancePROTECT®, and BlackBerry® UEM, along with two of the company’s secure communication solutions, BlackBerry® AtHoc® and SecuSUITE® for Government.
For transportation and logistics businesses, BlackBerry Radar is currently the only asset tracking and monitoring solution available in AWS Marketplace.
