BlackBerry Spark Suites Launch to Provide Companies Intelligent Security, Everywhere

BlackBerry Limited (NYSE: BB; TSX: BB) today announced availability of BlackBerry Spark® Suites, offering enterprises a range of tailored cybersecurity and endpoint management options to help protect data, minimize risk, and reduce cost and complexity.

 

BlackBerry Spark Suites combine the best endpoint security and management capabilities. The suites are powered by artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML) and automation for improved cyber threat prevention and remediation from BlackBerry Cylance, plus seamless endpoint management, user authentication, and application and data encryption from BlackBerry® UEM. The new suites improve user productivity and layered security defenses, while simplifying purchasing decisions for enterprise customers who are undergoing digital transformation and shift to remote work.

 

“2020 is a pivotal year for organizations trying to maintain business continuity, while undergoing digital transformation and workplace upheaval. With the increased volume and variety of enterprise IoT endpoints and as the scale of cyber threats continues to grow, BlackBerry Spark Suites provide a consolidated, simplified endpoint security and management offering to reduce cost and complexity in a chaotic environment,” said John Chen, Executive Chairman and CEO of BlackBerry. “We are excited to deliver the proven performance of BlackBerry’s AI-powered, zero-trust platform to customers worldwide.”

 

The company also announced that payments leader BPAY Group has deployed BlackBerry Spark UES Suite – one of the four new BlackBerry Spark bundles – to help protect and prevent cyberattacks on its endpoints.

 

“As a leading payments provider, BPAY Group must ensure complete trust in our operations, service delivery and especially, our data integrity,” said Angela Donohoe, CIO of BPAY Group. “BlackBerry’s AI and ML engine, with its proven ability to prevent, detect and respond to sophisticated threats, was a major consideration in our decision to deploy the BlackBerry Spark UES Suite.”

 

BlackBerry’s unified offering is in-line with the convergence of mobile threat detection (MTD), endpoint detection and response (EDR) and endpoint protection platform (EPP) tools. Gartner has dubbed this combined infrastructure stack “unified endpoint security.” Organizations should invest with this convergence in mind.[1]

 

“I expect a unified endpoint security solution like BlackBerry Spark Suites to become the dominant endpoint security model within the next 2-3 years,” said Jack Gold, president and principal analyst, J. Gold Associates. “Enterprises should be planning now to move towards this unified endpoint security model for increased security, better TCO, and improved user experience.”

 

BlackBerry Spark Suites are available now. The four suites that make up BlackBerry Spark Suites are BlackBerry Spark® UEM Express Suite, BlackBerry Spark® UEM Suite, BlackBerry Spark® UES Suite and BlackBerry Spark® Suite.
