BlackBerry Updates Guard Solution with New Security Features


BlackBerry Updates Guard Solution with New Security Features

By Luke Bellos

Over the last decade, BlackBerry has successfully pivoted away from the smartphone industry, and has formed a new image as one of the leading providers of managed services and cybersecurity solutions. This shift in focus turned out to be an incredibly wise move, as online threats like malware and ransomware are currently at their highest levels ever.

To help businesses uncover malicious programming before it's too late, BlackBerry has announced version 2.0 of BlackBerry® Guard. The latest version comes equipped with AI-enhanced mobile threat defense, as well as behavior risk analytics and network analytics technology. As threats continue to rise, business leaders will have to incorporate the most advanced digital resources possible to avoid the consequences of a cybersecurity breach.

“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.”

With Version 2.0 of BlackBerry® Guard, customers can boost network protection with key features which include:

  • AI-Powered Endpoint Protection - machine learning helps customers uncover threats that typically go under the radar
  • 24x7x365 Monitoring – business are constantly protected at all times, not just during standard hours of operation
  • Continuous Threat Hunting –networks are regularly scanned for possible threats and suspicious activity.
  • Automated Rapid Response - account holders are automatically notified about any security breaches or attacks
  • Continuous Authentication – leveraging the Cylance® AI platform, customers can utilize passive biometrics and behavioral analytics to validate user activity.
  • Mobile Threat Detection – mobile devices can now experience the same protections as desktop computers or laptops.
