"MDM has become table stakes; it is no longer a meaningful point of differentiation. The differentiation for BlackBerry in the future will be our ability to enable secure, productive mobile communications, collaboration, and other applications," BlackBerry enterprise chief John Sims said at the time.
As well as handsets, the company has been looking to secure and manage Internet of Things devices.
In March, the company launched a new mid-range 5-inch smartphone called Leap, which marked a return to BlackBerry creating all-touch devices, as well as a slider handset.
After many years of punishment, the company's financials are starting to look in better shape. In March, BlackBerry posted a fourth-quarter profit of $28 million on revenue of $660 million, and for the full year made a $304 million loss from $3.33 billion in revenue.
For its 2014 fiscal year, the company made $6.81 billion in revenue and a loss of $5.87 billion.
