About the Report

About the Report

BlackBerry provides security solutions that are focused on protecting endpoints and servers from being compromised by advanced threats. Using a lightweight agent on the endpoint, when a threat is detected, information about the event – including telemetry data – is transmitted through encrypted channels to the customers' private tenant in the BlackBerry cloud. This report is based in large part on this anonymized threat data collected between January 1 and December 31, 2019.
