BlackBerry recognized for its prevention first approach
WATERLOO, ON, Nov. 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- BlackBerry Limited (NYSE: BB; TSX: BB) today announced that SE Labs has rated BlackBerry as the best new endpoint security offering of 2021.
SE Labs prides itself on providing the most realistic and honest cybersecurity testing. The organization hires innovative researchers to replicate the most accurate 'real world' testing scenarios possible. As workplaces open and hybrid work brings with it a range of new attack vectors, it's even more critical that security software be tested against these evolving threats.
"Being rated as best new endpoint solution reflects the work done by our development and engineering teams.," says Billy Ho, Executive Vice President, BlackBerry Spark Group Products. "Our Cylance AI/ML models are in their seventh generation and have analyzed over 1.4 trillion files, extracting over 20 billion features. This scale was also reflected in SE Labs July 2021 testing, where BlackBerry's achieved 100% efficacy with zero false positives against recent malware. We're excited by the continued industry and market recognition of our security solutions."
Cybersecurity benchmarking is increasingly important, as the cybercriminal landscape has never posed more of a threat to businesses. With the cybercriminal underground increasingly operating like the business world, the desire to quickly monetize viruses is growing. In the past 12 months alone, the BlackBerry Research and Intelligence team have uncovered the world's largest cyber espionage group as well as an 'enterprise' level Initial Access Broker linked to some of the more rampant ransomware strains. BlackBerry's advance intelligence for endpoint security, Cylance AI, focuses on prevention first, stopping attacks before they infiltrate systems or exploit other weaknesses.
"2021 has been the first year we have tested this product with BlackBerry publicly. When judging for our annual awards it is hard to ignore when a new, significant vendor enters our tests and performs so well from the start," said Simon Edwards, CEO SE Labs. Blackberry has demonstrated excellent performance in our 'real-world' testing, and the product is well regarded by both our expert panel of judges and users of the product. We would like to congratulate BlackBerry on achieving the award for best new endpoint."
