BlackBerry Persona Desktop delivers zero-trust security at the endpoint

New security solution learns user behavior and can take action if there’s an abnormality

BlackBerry has announced BlackBerry Persona Desktop, an all-new security solution that uses advanced artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to detect user and entity behavior abnormalities.

Once the new BlackBerry Persona Desktop notices an irregularity in behavior, it protects the endpoint, network and data. 

BlackBerry Persona Desktop works at the endpoint, eliminating the need to share data back to the cloud before acting. This allows it to work in real-time with minimal delay to prevent hacks and data breaches.

On top of working faster, BlackBerry Persona Desktop also protects against even the most challenging security challenges, including:

  • Stolen credentials: Persona Desktop protects in the event of stolen credentials by learning how a user works and their interaction with a device. If Persona Desktop senses abnormal interaction, it sends an alert through the cloud and takes other threat-mitigation actions, like asking for second-factor authentication. 
  • Insider threats: If a rogue employee attempts to breach your system, the Persona Desktop can detect the abnormal behavior and flag the risk. It’ll then alert the administrator, who determines what action Persona Desktop takes to mitigate the threat. 
  • Physical compromise: If someone physically compromises or steals a device, BlackBerry Persona Desktop uses biometric capabilities, including keystrokes and mouse movement, to sense a different user and alert an administrator or lock the user out. 

BlackBerry Personal is available with the BlackBerry Cyber Suite, which is a unique combination of endpoint protection (EPP), mobile threat defense (MTD), endpoint detection and response (EDR), and user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA) products together in one package.
