BlackBerry Intelligent Security

Adaptive Security and AI to Protect Mobile Endpoints

BlackBerry Intelligent Security uses machine learning and predictive AI to dynamically adapt a security policy based on user location, device and other factors. By improving the user experience, it protects against human mistakes and well-intentioned workarounds.

Security that Travels and Adjusts with Your Users

What if your security policies could relax when your users are at the office or other trusted spaces, or change dynamically if they’re traveling in a higher-risk location? Or if those policies could sense when something is amiss and automatically lock down a device?

Meet your highest security standards with BlackBerry Intelligent Security.

  • Dynamically adapts a security policy based on user geolocation, device, time, IP address and BlackBerry® Dynamics™ app identifiers.
  • Decreases the risk that comes with lost devices
  • Protects against device/app cloning and/or user impersonation 

BlackBerry Intelligent Security creates the best experience for end users while ensuring the best security and compliance posture.

  • Streamlined access to apps and services without having to re-authenticate when in trusted locations
  • Adapts security and policy posture to actual context, versus applying only static policies
  • Enables “zero sign-in” and/or increasing timeouts if a user is in a low-risk pattern in high-trust location

BlackBerry Intelligent Security provides a contextual system for Unified Endpoint Management and protection.

  • Relaxes security policies when an end user is in a trusted location and dynamically adjusts when they travel to a higher-risk location
  • Adapts device security to local regulatory requirements as an employee travels from one country to another
  • Quarantines devices and apps before they can be used for malicious purposes

BlackBerry Intelligent Security provides the same high level of trust you have always relied on to ensure your security posture is maximized without having to compromise user experience, mobility or productivity.

  • Identifies behavioral and location patterns to determine certain risk factors
  • Continuously generates a risk score that informs security policies on devices to ensure the best security and compliance posture possible 

BlackBerry Intelligent Security allows the user experience design and security/policy posture to be mutually and dynamically optimized, versus in conflict.

  • Determines what level of access should be granted to any device or application at any given moment
  • Dynamically adapts security requirements for devices and applications without impacting performance
  • Proactively detects anomalous behavior and prevents potentially malicious activity

BlackBerry Intelligent Security adds a layer of adaptive security to your existing UEM or UEM Cloud domain without introducing an additional software footprint.

  • Builds on existing investments in BlackBerry® UEM, BlackBerry Dynamics, and BlackBerry® Enterprise Identity
  • Can work with existing third-party infrastructure, like external IDPs or applications.
  • Allows organizations to extend data, services and models with third-party threat detection systems

ESG Technical Validation

Featured White Paper: ESG Technical Validation of BlackBerry Intelligent Security

Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) recently completed testing of BlackBerry Intelligent Security. Testing focused on ease of deployment and management, and simplification of the user experience.

How it Works

BlackBerry Intelligent Security, built on the BlackBerry Spark™ platform, uses analytics-driven security to provide trust within Zero Trust environments. It adapts endpoint security policies based on situational risk:

User Location

BlackBerry Intelligent Security uses Machine Learning to identify behavioral and location patterns of multiple users to determine location-based risk. Known work locations can also be preloaded.

Network Trust

BlackBerry Intelligent Security determines the frequency of network use and adjusts security dynamically based on that profile. Accessing a public Wi-Fi for the first time would adjust the risk score accordingly.

User Behavior

BlackBerry Intelligent Security can determine and build a contextual risk score based on learning how and when a user normally accesses data, identifying when the user’s behavior seems consistent and trusted (coming soon).

Device and App DNA

BlackBerry Intelligent Security has the ability to determine whether a device and apps are compliant and up to date, and can adjust the security policy based on the device and app DNA profile (coming soon).

AI, combined with spatial data, determine a real-time risk score that adapts security policies for the user to create the best experience and security posture. It can:

  • Grant access
  • Adopt a policy
  • Issue an authentication challenge
  • Alert and remediate

Use Cases

Adaptive Policy: Regional Bank Manager

Anne enters a retail branch

Anne is the regional manager for a major retail bank. With BlackBerry Intelligent Security, when she enters a retail branch, her presence is detected based on her mobile device’s geolocation. Her access to privileged apps appropriate for her role  is automatically enabled upon her arrival. When she leaves, that access is disabled.

Adaptive Policy: Office Professional

Malicious hacker tries to access Salesforce app

Sally is an inside sales employee who primarily works from a corporate office. When BlackBerry Intelligent Security detects a combination of IP address, location and time that aren't possible based on her last known access, it immediately denies access and takes remediating action to automate a logout, add the IP address to a watchlist and alert BlackBerry® UEM of the high-risk event.

Adaptive Policy: Government Military Base

Colonel Smith enters a restricted zone

Colonel Smith works at a government military base that has a restricted, high-security zone. With BlackBerry Intelligent Security, upon entering this zone, his camera and Bluetooth® connection are disabled and access to restricted websites is enabled. When he leaves, camera and Bluetooth are enabled and restricted website access is disabled.
