BlackBerry Guard 2.0 Extends Managed Detection and Response Service

BlackBerry Guard 2.0 will be a subscription-based managed service

BlackBerry today unveiled BlackBerry Guard 2.0, a managed detection and response (MDR) service, which will include artificial intelligence (AI)-powered mobile threat defence (MTD),  user behaviour risk analytics and network analytics technology.

BlackBerry says 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 is a core part of a world-class security organization of incident responders and prevention experts who hunt through customer environments to find and contain threats, prevent major breaches, and allow organizations to mature their security posture.

As a testament to BlackBerry’s security expertise, BlackBerry recently achieved first place standing in the SOC X World Championship and the OpenSOC competition, where BlackBerry competed against other Security Operations Center (SOC) and Incident Response (IR) teams from around the globe to prove their real-life response capabilities during authentic APT-simulated attacks.

BlackBerry Guard 2.0 is expected be available by calendar year Q4 .
