BlackBerry launches Cyber Threat Intelligence service to strengthen cyber defenses

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – October 27, 2022 – Today, at the BlackBerry Security Summit, BlackBerry Limited (NYSE: BB; TSX: BB) announced the release of its new Cyber Threat Intelligence (CTI) offering, a professional threat intelligence service to help customers prevent, detect, and effectively respond to cyberattacks. 

 

Delivered on a quarterly subscription basis, BlackBerry’s new CTI service provides actionable intelligence on targeted attacks and cybercrime-motivated threat actors and campaigns, as well as intelligence reports specific to industries, regions, and countries. BlackBerry’s CTI will save organisations time and resources by focusing on specific areas of interest relevant to a company’s security goals 

 

“Being cyber resilient means making the right decisions at the right time,” said Ismael Valenzuela, Vice President, Threat Research and Intelligence at BlackBerry. “Cyberattacks are becoming more sophisticated and threat actors move quickly. BlackBerry’s Cyber Threat Intelligence delivers the details needed to improve detection and response, so organisations can stay on top of cyber threat activity and anticipate any next moves.” 

 

“More businesses are recognising the value of threat intelligence and the distinctive benefits it brings to security teams,” said Chris Kissel, Vice President, Security and Trust Products at IDC Research. “Curated threat intelligence from credible experts in the space provides businesses and their front line security personnel with timely insights, enabling them to better detect, triage, and investigate threats. Integrating this service with existing security ecosystems helps businesses stay one step ahead of cyber threats as digital attack surfaces evolve and expand.” 

 

The Threat Research and Intelligence Team has released numerous ‘First-to-Market’ research reports over the past year leveraging BlackBerry’s data-driven digital ecosystem and analytical capabilities. These research reports have revealed new developments in the ransomware and malware space, and targeted, state-sponsored APT activity, including Symbiote, DCRat, Chaos Yashma ransomware and LokiLocker, all of which have been well-received by BlackBerry’s customer base and the broader security community. 

 

The service will launch in December.
