CylanceENDPOINT has helped our organization support rapid expansion without putting sensitive information at risk. After we switched our endpoint detection and response (EDR) software to CylanceENDPOINT, we saw significant improvements almost immediately. BlackBerry's software provides an advanced means of tackling security threats, while its comprehensive console meets IT administrator and industrial audit requirements, like SOC2 and ISAE3402. We're confident that we'll see even further benefits from the platform.

The Delicate Balance Between Business Agility and Cybersecurity
Linnovate sought to expand, but it knew this would require more flexible and scalable infrastructure. More importantly, it understood that its security must also evolve, to address new threats and vulnerabilities while staying in line with industry regulations.
"We needed to strike a balance between maintaining the agility required to support our growth and maintaining the necessary level of security to protect our digital assets and customers," notes Law.
Banking on Better Security Posture
“Data breaches and cyberattacks are some of our primary security concerns,” Law continues. “They can cause significant financial loss, damage our reputation, and compromise the trust of our clients. To prevent that from happening, we pursued several security initiatives.”
First, Linnovate implemented multi-factor authentication, endpoint protection, and strong encryption. It paired these measures with regular security awareness training, alongside regular security audits and penetration testing. The company also developed and implemented a comprehensive incident response plan.
Last but not least, Linnovate reached out to several trusted security solution providers — including BlackBerry.
"We were impressed by BlackBerry's reputation as a vendor," explains Law.
But it wasn't solely BlackBerry's status as a trusted, experienced cybersecurity provider that sealed the deal for Linnovate. BlackBerry also offered the functionality Linnovate required — lightweight, scalable real-time threat detection and prevention alongside a comprehensive console to help us meet IT administrator and industrial audit requirements such as SOC 2 and ISAE 3402. After a brief evaluation, Linnovate cut ties with its previous EDR vendor and deployed BlackBerry CylanceENDPOINT™.
CylanceENDPOINT™ leverages self-defending Cylance AI® prevention, detection, and response capabilities, to enable a proactive approach to cybersecurity, eliminating threats before they have a chance to cause damage. Its lightweight endpoint agent scans and detects everything from malware and malicious scripts to zero-day exploits and works effectively regardless of whether an endpoint is connected to a network or the internet.
