Customize the 
BlackBerry Intelligent Security
 risk engines

You can choose which risk engines you want 
BlackBerry Intelligent Security
 to use. For example, you can choose to turn off the identity risk engines (behavioral patterns and continuous authentication) and have 
BlackBerry Intelligent Security
 determine a user’s risk level and corresponding actions using defined geozones and learned geozones only. Enable the risk engines that meet your organization’s security standards. All risk engines are enabled by default.
You can customize the risk score ranges for behavioral risk and learned geozone risk. The default risk ranges are:
Risk level
Behavioral risk score (%)
Learned geozone risk range (upper limit of the distance from a learned geozone)
0 - 40
150 yards
40 - 80
10 miles
80 - 100
> 10 miles
  1. In the 
    BlackBerry Intelligent Security Analytics Portal
    , on the menu bar, click 
    Settings > Risk engines
  2. If desired, turn off any of the 
    BlackBerry Intelligent Security
     risk engines.Turning off a risk engine will disable the corresponding scoring and risk actions for all users, regardless of whether actions are configured for that risk engine in an individual policy.
    Continuous authentication risk
     controls whether 
    BlackBerry Work
     sends behavioral data and events to the 
    BlackBerry Intelligent Security
     services. The services use this information to train and build a usage model for the user. If 
    BlackBerry Work
     reports behavior that does not fit the usage model (for example, the user forwards multiple email messages in a row, which is atypical for that user), 
    BlackBerry Intelligent Security
     triggers an authentication prompt in 
    BlackBerry Work
    . The user must successfully authenticate if they want to continue to use 
    BlackBerry Work
     and other 
    BlackBerry Dynamics
  3. If you want to change the behavioral risk score ranges, in the 
    Behavioral pattern risk
     section, click and drag the sliders.
  4. If you want to change the learned geozone risk ranges, in the 
    Learned geozone risk engine
     section, specify the upper limit of the low-risk range and medium-risk range from learned locations.
