BlackBerry Named a Leader in the IDC MarketScape on UEM, EMM, and EMM for Ruggedize/IoT Device Deployments

Once again, IDC has recognized BlackBerry as a leader in the enterprise mobility market segment in three recent IDC MarketScape studies. These findings continue to validate BlackBerry as a vendor of choice for organizations and governments who need software and services to secure mobile devices, as well as embedded devices in the IoT space. 

Published in November 2019, the studies are:

  • Leader – IDC MarketScape Worldwide Unified Endpoint Management Software (Doc # US45355119)
  • Leader – IDC MarketScape Worldwide Enterprise Mobility Management Software (Doc # US45353719)
  • Leader – IDC MarketScape Worldwide EMM Software for Ruggedize/IoT Device Deployments (Doc # US45353819)

The Cylance Effect

As we capitalize on our 2018 acquisition of Cylance, with AI-based solutions to predict and prevent threats to endpoints, we are continuing to integrate Cylance into our mobility offerings. The net result is that we are strategically shifting away from the traditional, reactive threat detection to a proactive, preventative approach to cybersecurity. We believe that our Cylance strategy has directly contributed to our continued leadership position in the three IDC MarketScape studies.

A case in point, we recently announced the availability of CylancePROTECT for Mobile, which integrates Cylance threat protection with BlackBerry® Unified Endpoint Management (UEM). The new solution offers UEM customers an automated, predictive, AI-based method to protect all mobile endpoints from malware, phishing, and application integrity from a single console. CylancePROTECT uses AI to identify and block both known and unknown malware from running on mobile devices and within applications. The integration ensures enterprise customers that their entire mobile fleet is protected without having to rely on employees to update their security software—which can lead to a huge security gap. Eliminating the gaps and reducing the threat surface with innovative, automated, and predictive security solutions will help us stay ahead of the competitive curve.

With our plan to integrate Cylance’s proactive AI security technologies across our entire portfolio, we will augment our market-leading security solutions with robust prevention and detection solutions, analysis and response capabilities, as well as application and script control, memory protection, and device policy enforcement technologies.

Continued recognition from highly regarded independent analysts like IDC validate our shift toward cybersecurity solutions and services.
