BlackBerry Spark Communications Services

BlackBerry Spark Communications Services

Spark is an IP-based cloud communications platform that lets you easily create powerful new experiences between your users, machines, and IoT devices. Its enterprise-grade communication and data sharing functionality can be integrated directly into your Android, iOS and web apps. With end-to-end encryption, digitally signed messages, and guaranteed data delivery, Spark is a secure CPaaS (communications platform as a service) solution that can enable you to build powerful connections around the world, while keeping everything safe and secure in a “private garden” communication system.
