Integrating
BlackBerry Persona

In SDK version 8.0 and later, the
BlackBerry Dynamics SDK
integrates
BlackBerry Persona
(previously
BlackBerry Intelligent Security
) functionality. Previously,
Persona
functionality was offered as part of the separate
BlackBerry Analytics
SDK that you could integrate with your
BlackBerry Dynamics
apps. In SDK version 8.0 and later,
BlackBerry Analytics
and
Persona
functionality are now included in the
BlackBerry Dynamics SDK
.
Persona
is a license-based cloud service that can dynamically adapt the security requirements and behavior of your users' devices and work apps to their real-world contexts. For example, if a
BlackBerry Dynamics
app reports a location that is not typical for the user,
Persona
can dynamically limit the user’s access to work apps and device features, and enforce stricter authentication requirements. Likewise, if a
BlackBerry Dynamics
app reports a location that is typical for the user,
Persona
can apply device behaviors that make it easier to access work apps and resources.
Persona
adds a layer of adaptive security to your organization’s existing
UEM
domain without introducing an additional software footprint. It is a cloud service that collects data from existing
BlackBerry
solutions, including
BlackBerry Enterprise Identity
and
BlackBerry Dynamics
apps.
The
Persona
services gather and process behavioral data, app events, and location data to calculate risk levels for each user in real-time and execute dynamic management actions that are configured by the
UEM
administrator.
To integrate
Persona
with your custom
BlackBerry Dynamics
apps, your organization must purchase
Persona
licenses, the
UEM
administrator must assign the entitlement to users or groups and configure the service, and you must follow the app integration instructions in this section. For more information about the
Persona
requirements and configuration, see the BlackBerry Persona documentation.
For more information about the
Persona
APIs that are integrated in the
BlackBerry Dynamics SDK
, see the BlackBerryAnalytics class (Android/iOS) in the API reference.
Enabling the
Persona
entitlement will increase the number of onUpdateConfig callbacks.
