BlackBerry Protect for Powerful Prevention

Endpoint security redefined. BlackBerry Protect AI-driven technology prevents attacks before they can damage your devices, network, or reputation. No signatures. More predictability. Less hassle. Prevention is possible with BlackBerry Protect.

BlackBerry Protect leverages artificial intelligence to detect and prevent attacks before they can execute. It prevents users from opening URLs and visiting spoofing websites designed to mimic legitimate pages in order to gather confidential or personal information.

Memory protection adds an additional layer of security and strengthens the OS’s basic protection features – preventing attackers from using memory to exploit vulnerabilities.

Monitor, detect, and protect against malicious scripts/script paths running in your environment – before they can execute.

Lockdown specified systems and restrict any changes to the devices after being locked down. Perfect to ensure fixed-function devices remain in a pristine uncompromised state.

Set parameters for what devices can connect to your environment – granting access can be as specific as designating serial numbers or as general as device category.

Using interactive dashboards with real-time statistics, users can easily increase their situational awareness and gain insight into their potential attack surface.


BlackBerry Protect on Mobile Devices

BlackBerry Protect on mobile is a Mobile Threat Defense (MTD) solution that augments the security baseline provided by BlackBerry® UEM. It prevents, detects and remediates advanced malicious threats at the device and application levels. It combines the mobile endpoint management capabilities of BlackBerry UEM with BlackBerry AI driven threat protection to get in front of malicious cyberattacks in a Zero Trust environment.

Scans mobile applications for existing malware

BlackBerry Protect scans and validates applications to determine if there is malicious malware and greyware within them prior to pushing applications to devices or users trying to access information while malware is on the device.  

Complete protection for all devices and activation types

BlackBerry Protect continuously protects mobile endpoints without disrupting users, regardless of device activation type (including managed and BYOD).

  • Advanced Android™ malware detection and prevention
  • Users are prevented from sideloading unapproved iOS® apps from third party app stores
  • iOS app integrity checking
  • Phishing detection to protect the user from opening malicious links
Integrated directly into BlackBerry Dynamics

Because BlackBerry Protect is built directly into BlackBerry UEM and iOS and Android versions of the BlackBerry® Dynamics application, you can be assured that all the mobile endpoints BlackBerry UEM manages are protected from zero-day threats. With BlackBerry Protect there is no reliance on the end user to install, log in, maintain any third-party apps or complete manual steps to configure settings.
