BlackBerry Extends Managed Detection and Response (MDR) Service with BlackBerry Guard 2.0
Thursday, October 21, 2021

The Improved Offering Meets the Needs of the Changing Threat Landscape

WATERLOO, ON, Oct. 13, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- BlackBerry Limited (NYSE: BB; TSX: BB) today announced updates to its BlackBerry® Guard 2.0 solution, the managed detection and response (MDR) service, which will include artificial intelligence (AI)-powered mobile threat defense (MTD), user behavior risk analytics and network analytics technology. This enhanced feature set will protect enterprises and small businesses from the explosive growth of mobile phishing, malware attacks, attack propagation and insider threats from authorized personnel or compromised credentials.

BlackBerry Guard 2.0 will be a subscription-based managed service that leverages BlackBerry security experts and the Cylance® AI platform for continuous protection, detection, and response. The platform will now deliver a new customer and analyst portal, and multi-regional support, and will soon have data insights gathered from BlackBerry® Protect Mobile, BlackBerry® Gateway and BlackBerry® Persona for broader protection and expanded visibility across an organization's endpoint ecosystem.

"The exponential rise in cyberattacks continues to challenge organizations and security teams of all sizes, especially those that lack the ability to support 24x7x365 threat monitoring and hunting," said Billy Ho, Executive Vice President of Product Engineering, BlackBerry. "With organizations increasingly moving to a remote or hybrid workforce, keeping employees safe and secure no matter where or how they work should be paramount. Having a comprehensive offering that can rapidly adapt to the changing threat landscape is critical. With this offering, our BlackBerry security analysts can be better prepared to defend our customers by correlating the enhanced telemetry across mobile, desktops, network, and user data."

BlackBerry Guard 2.0 will provide critical cybersecurity services, to prevent, detect, and quickly respond to threats, including:

    --  AI-Powered Endpoint Protection - Advanced machine learning uncovers
        malware, fileless, and user-based threats in the environment
    --  24x7x365 Monitoring - Constant eyes on glass including nights, weekends,
        and holidays
    --  Continuous Threat Hunting - Sweeps for common attacker Tactics,
        Techniques, and Procedures (TTPs) to uncover subtle threats
    --  Continuous Threat Intelligence Overlay - Provides a force multiplier by
        overlaying the latest threat intelligence onto environmental data
    --  Automated Rapid Response - Quickly disrupt and contain cyberattacks and
        security compromises, then notify account holders for maximum
        transparency
    --  Continuous Authentication - Cylance AI leverages passive biometrics and
        behavioral analytics to derive a real-time risk score to protect
        corporate resources
    --  Mobile Threat Detection - delivers extended protection for an
        organizations' fleet of mobile devices
    --  Strengthens BlackBerry's Zero Trust offering - Provides stronger access
        control with network layer authentication and granular network access
        controls and prevent users from accessing potentially malicious sites
        using IP reputation management
