BlackBerry launches AI-powered mobile threat defence solution

7081135873 dcbc67971b cBlackBerry has introduced BlackBerry Protect Mobile, a new mobile threat defence (MTD) solution that extends BlackBerry Protect’s powerful AI security to mobile devices

The solution provides security teams with visibility to their mobile, desktop, and server endpoints from a single security console that is critical at a time when remote workers are targeting mobile malware and phishing attacks.

Built on the BlackBerry Spark Platform, BlackBerry Protect Mobile leverages BlackBerry’s advanced AI engine to detect attacks before it can run. It alerts users before opening URLs and visiting spoofing websites designed to mimic legitimate pages to collect confidential or personal information. This is done by detecting mobile malware attacks at the device and application level to extend protection without the need for human intervention.

It identifies security vulnerabilities and potential malicious activities by monitoring system parameters, device configurations, and application-level system libraries. It also identifies malware from sideloaded applications and can ensure that applications are only sourced through secure repositories.

Protect Mobile is a BlackBerry Cyber Suite product that combines AI-driven Endpoint Protection (EPP), Detection and Response (EDR), Mobile Threat Defense (MTD) and Continuous Authentication and Behavioral Analytics (UEBA) for the widest and most powerful set of available security solutions.

“The number of phishing attacks that target mobile users will continue to rise because business is being conducted on mobile devices and users are more susceptible to attacks when viewing and accessing content on the go,” said Billy Ho, executive vice-president of BlackBerry Spark. “BlackBerry Protect Mobile provides mobile device security integrated into our unified endpoint security (UES) solutions for a simplified approach to identifying and alerting users and administrators to phishing attempts and mobile malware across the enterprise.”

“The shift to global work from home driven by the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the traditional notion of work, and remote work is here to stay,” said Phil Hochmuth, programme vice-president, Enterprise Mobility, IDC. ‘We expect that the WFH boom will spark initiatives to modernise enterprise security, including mobile threat detection, which is essential for organisations to defend their users from growing mobile risks.”
