Whitepaper: BlackBerry Cylance vs. Traditional Security Approaches

Today’s advanced cyber threats target every computer and mobile device, including enterprise endpoints, especially those that make up our critical infrastructure such as industrial control systems and embedded devices that control much of our physical world.

The modern computing landscape consists of a complex array of physical, mobile, cloud, and virtual computing, creating a vast attack surface. Meanwhile, the cybersecurity industry is prolific with defense-in-depth security technologies, despite a threat landscape that remains highly dynamic, sophisticated, and automated.

BlackBerry Cylance, however, takes the unique and innovative approach of using real-time, mathematical, and machine learning (ML) threat analysis to solve this problem at the endpoint for organizations, governments, and end-users worldwide.

We use artificial intelligence (AI) to deliver security solutions that change how organizations, governments, and end-users approach endpoint security.

Our advanced next-generation endpoint protection solution delivers industry-leading malware prevention powered by AI, combined with application and script control, memory protection, and device policy enforcement in order to prevent successful cyber-attacks.

Without the use of signatures or the need to stream data to the cloud, BlackBerry Cylance combats common threats such as malware, ransomware, fileless malware, malicious scripts, weaponized docs, and many other attack vectors, no matter where the endpoint resides.

With unmatched effectiveness, ease of use, and minimal system impact, this is the best way to prevent both known and unknown attacks before they can execute.

Augmenting BlackBerry Cylance’s endpoint prevention capabilities is our endpoint detection and response (EDR) component that enables easy root cause analysis, threat hunting, and automated threat detection and response.

Unlike other EDR products that require organizations to make a significant investment in on-premises infrastructure and/or stream data to the cloud continuously, and employ highly-skilled security resources, our solution is designed to automate threat detection and response tasks using existing resources.

BlackBerry Cylance’s Consulting Services provide pre-attack penetration and vulnerability testing, compromise assessments, and post-attack incident containment using AI-driven technology. This powerful combination of predictive threat prevention, detection, response, and expert services allows us to protect endpoints without requiring our clients to increase their staff workload or costs.
