Pooja Kohli: Securing Applications with BlackBerry Intelligent Security

BlackBerry Intelligent Security uses machine learning and predictive AI to dynamically adapt a security policy based on user location, device and other factors. By improving the user experience, it protects against human mistakes and well-intentioned workarounds.

At Black Hat 2019, BlackBerry launched a new unified endpoint management platform called BlackBerry Intelligent Security that enables security policies to be either more flexible or more rigid, depending on whether the user is in the office or traveling in a high-risk location.

The new service - built on the BlackBerry Spark platform - uses machine learning and authentication to secure users and Internet of Things (IoT) endpoints based on risk and context obtained from analyzing users' data.
