BlackBerry launches new threat hunting solution

BlackBerry has announced the introduction of CylanceGUARD, a managed detection and response (MDR) solution that leverages BlackBerry Cylance security experts and its industry-leading native AI platform to provide continuous threat hunting and monitoring.

For an elite security organisation, threat hunting takes a proactive stance to threat detection; however, there are only a handful of organisations in industries such as financial services, high-tech manufacturing, and defence that can claim to have productive threat hunting teams that deliver results.

Many organisations without a mature security team are looking to external vendors to manage their threat hunting practice, allowing staff to focus on critical business initiatives.

In its Worldwide Semiannual Security Spending Guide, IDC projects global spending on managed security services will reach more than $21 billion in 2019.

CylanceGUARD is a subscription-based offering that validates, triages, analyses, prioritises, and automates analyst and incident engagement.

With alert automation, artificial intelligence and an advanced orchestration engine, CylanceGUARD simplifies complex technologies and workflows to dramatically reduce the time it takes to identify intrusions and act against attack proliferation.

“Organisations of all sizes are looking for solutions to address security professional staffing challenges, augment internal security teams with preventative security assistance, or address the need for 24x7 monitoring, detection and response,” says IDC cybersecurity products program vice president Frank Dickson. 

“Managed detection and response services such as CylanceGUARD turn an endpoint detection and response offering into a more complete solution, helping customers reduce the time it takes to discover and respond to threats.”

CylanceGUARD is a team of prevention experts and incident responders, who leverage the BlackBerry Cylance AI Platform to apply proven incident response methods, alert automation, and AI technology across customer endpoints, providing 24x7 threat hunting and monitoring. 

BlackBerry Cylance customers can access a web portal for visibility into their security environments, as well as receive mobile warnings on iOS and Android devices, including delivered context to streamline investigations.

“Alert fatigue is a real concern,” says BlackBerry Cylance threat hunting vice president Jason Bevis.

“With CylanceGUARD, organisations can benefit from a unified threat hunting, detection, and response approach, which enables in-house security teams to spend time on other organisational initiatives rather than recovering from breaches.”

BlackBerry aims provides enterprises and governments with the technology they need to secure the Internet of Things.

Based in Waterloo, Ontario, the company is committed to safety, cybersecurity and data privacy.
