BlackBerry unveils managed extended detection and response service

BlackBerry Limited has announced an update to its BlackBerry Guard managed detection and response (MDR) service to now deliver a managed extended detection and response (XDR) service.  This new functionality is achieved through a partnership with Exabeam.

The BlackBerry Guard managed XDR solution provides coverage beyond endpoints by integrating Cylance AI-powered BlackBerry Optics, BlackBerry Persona, BlackBerry Gateway, and BlackBerry Protect solutions with Exabeam Fusion SIEM and XDR solutions. BlackBerry customers will benefit from BlackBerry solutions and the Exabeam security analytics and automation platform for high-fidelity alerts and cross-tool threat hunting services that automatically correlate data from mobile devices, servers, users, and networks to quickly detect potential threats in real-time, visible from a single console. 

Billy Ho, Executive Vice President of Product Engineering, BlackBerry said, “with cybercrime drastically increasing due to the pandemic, cybercriminals are targeting people -- not just the systems in place. Legacy mitigation tools designed to safeguard organizations’ systems and infrastructure only are now inadequate to stop expanding attack avenues. Organisations operating in hybrid workplace environments need human threat experts to manage cybersecurity incident alerts, deal with and prevent attacks, and fill in the resource and skills gap. The integrated BlackBerry Guard solution provides customers with an innovative and industry-leading managed XDR service, keeping employees secure 24x7.”  

Gorka Sadowski, Chief Strategy Officer, Exabeam added, “We’re excited that after extensive due diligence, BlackBerry selected Exabeam to enable the BlackBerry Guard managed XDR solution to help end clients more easily achieve holistic XDR coverage with a simplified experience. Exabeam Fusion SIEM and Exabeam Fusion XDR combined with the BlackBerry AI-powered solutions will offer thousands of BlackBerry customers a powerful and prescriptive solution to solve their most pressing threat, detection, investigation, and response needs.”
