Last year BlackBerry announced its plans to push hotfixes for critical issues and monthly Android security updates from Google for the BlackBerry Priv smartphone. Earlier this week it rolled out a 17MB OTA update for the BlackBerry Priv that includes Google’s March Android security update addressing multiple vulnerabilities. Today BlackBerry said that it is the first OEM to deliver patches in line with Google’s public disclosure. It also said how BlackBerry it is delivering on its patching commitment.

“Other mobile device vendors can take weeks, months or even years to deliver security patches, leaving you and your business at risk. BlackBerry’s steadfast commitment to timely security updates is just one of the many reasons why BlackBerry continues to be the undisputed leader in mobile privacy and security,” said the company.

BlackBerry also posted a tablet that shows BlackBerry in green, indicating that there is no delay between public disclosure and patch availability. Yellow indicates patch available within a week of exposure; red indicates patch available after more than a week (or not at all).
