BlackBerry Cylance Named Forrester Wave Leader in Consulting

BlackBerry Cylance was recently ranked as a Leader in The Forrester Wave™: Midsize Cybersecurity Consulting Services Q2 2019, published May 30th, 2019. We believe that our placement in this Wave report showcases the strength and breadth of our Consulting Services offering.

Vendors in the Wave report were assessed based on Current Offering, Strategy, and Market Presence.

According to Forrester, “All engagements begin with a thorough scoping process that collects and maps all customer details and then linking them with desired security outcomes. Cylance’s in-house tools allow the firm to collect and share large amounts of technical data, which it then uses to enhance the client’s existing security metrics.”

The following are BlackBerry Cylance’s key takeaways from the report:

  • We have an exceptional application of security principles into technical, compliance, and advisory engagements within each of the following areas: business insights, data management, cloud computing, IoT deployment, and the business technology agenda.
  • We demonstrated best-in-class business insights, vertical expertise, and subject matter expertise in our go-to-market strategy.
  • We have made significant investments in R&D and integrated that R&D into asset-based consulting with proven benefits in new delivery models.
