BlackBerry addresses mobile threat mitigation with a unified endpoint management and security approach that addresses a wide range of endpoints and security threats for zero-trust security
SAN ANTONIO, September 22, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Frost & Sullivan honors BlackBerry with the 2022 Global Market Leadership Award for its Mobile Threat Defense (MTD) solution, based on the latest research and assessments of the global MTD industry. BlackBerry’s MTD solution, CylancePROTECT Mobile®, combines innovation, simplicity, artificial intelligence (AI) protection, mobile device management and complete user privacy to ensure superior enterprise data security and a premium user experience.
BlackBerry integrates its MTD directly into its endpoint solutions to secure the growing number of endpoints and track device behavior to detect and prevent malicious activity. In addition, the company implements additional layers of protection and security for remote connections, such as B. Verification Methods and Endpoint Visibility.
BlackBerry has a long-established position in the wireless market, with the acquisition of Cylance further expanding its MTD capabilities. The company has a unique narrative, including leveraging MTD in traditional endpoint security. By applying AI and endpoint solution strategies, BlackBerry demonstrates its keen attention to innovative strategies aimed at helping organizations operate in a zero-trust, zero-touch environment. BlackBerry addresses MTD with a Unified Endpoint Security (UES) approach that considers many types of security threats and devices and targets different types of mobile attack vectors. This unified approach prepares organizations to adopt a Zero Trust security strategy.
Corresponding Sarah PavlakFrost & Sullivan Industry Principal, Security, “BlackBerry’s R&D strategy aims to offer broad market applications for products derived from its technology base, with an extensive technology portfolio leveraged for superior cybersecurity. The strategy focuses on IoT, enterprise software and services continuously deliver technological innovations.”
CylancePROTECT Mobile® extends Cylance’s AI-powered security to mobile devices to detect and prevent malware, phishing and zero-day attacks. When monitoring for mobile threats at the device, network or application level to prevent malware infections, the technology identifies security vulnerabilities and malicious activities by monitoring OS updates, system parameters and device configurations at the application level. Protection includes network protection against vulnerable Wi-Fi connections. Users can easily monitor the status of all UES services and device health parameters to promote good cyber hygiene, resulting in higher productivity and reduced security risks and costs.
“BlackBerry’s robust mobile threat prevention tools improve endpoint efficiency and security, providing superior protection to ensure end-user productivity and enterprise security,” added Pavlak.
