What is MTD?
The drastic increase in the number of mobile devices has spawned a rise of mobile malware and cyberattacks. The answer for more and more organizations is to embrace a rapidly emerging class of mobile security capabilities known as mobile threat defense (MTD). These solutions go beyond traditional enterprise mobility management (EMM) solutions, offering an extra layer of security by preventing, detecting, remediating, and improving overall security hygiene for an organization’s entire mobile fleet and applications.
Why Mobile Threat Defense Now?
By 2020, 30% of organizations will have Mobile Threat Defense (MTD) in place, an increase from less than 10% in 2018.1
Every year, 42 million mobile malware attacks take place1
Of greyware apps leak the device’s phone number1
Business and industry apps leaks personally identifiable information1
Zero Trust to Zero Touch Architecture
Balancing the need for authentication with usability and productivity can be challenging. However, the typical static policy solutions available offer little toward addressing either issue.
In addition to BlackBerry Protect, BlackBerry® UEM provides a robust AI and Analytics driven security with BlackBerry Persona, which models the unique BlackBerry analytics data derived from secure BlackBerry containers, BlackBerry UEM and the BlackBerry NOC. AI combined with spatial data determines a real-time risk score that adapts security policies for the user to create the best experience and security posture.
BlackBerry Protect and BlackBerry Persona, together with BlackBerry UEM combine the best of Zero Trust and Zero Touch architectures to provide a complete endpoint management and protection portfolio to protect your endpoints, people and data from breach and data loss scenarios.
