Detecting malware on Android devices
BlackBerry Dynamicsapps can detect malware on
Androiddevices and report it as a compliance issue to
BlackBerry Dynamicsapps can enforce compliance actions until the malware is removed (for example, preventing all
BlackBerry Dynamicsapps on the device from running).
BlackBerry Dynamicsapps all include the
BlackBerry Dynamics SDKand the
CylancePROTECT Mobilelibrary. These apps use these technologies to scan the apps on a user’s
Androiddevice and upload the app files to the CylanceINFINITY cloud service. The app that initiates the malware scan is determined by the device activation type and the authentication delegate that you configure in the
CylanceINFINITYuses AI and machine learning to analyze the app package and produce a confidence score that it returns to the app that performed the scan. The confidence score indicates whether the scanned app is safe or potentially malicious.
If the device has one or more malicious apps and "Malicious app package detected" is enabled in the compliance profile,
UEMconsiders the device to be out of compliance, and the
BlackBerry Dynamicsapp takes the management action that is configured in the user’s compliance profile.
An app is uploaded to
CylanceINFINITYif it has a hash that
CylanceINFINITYhas not processed previously. Whenever an app has a new hash (for example, for a new version) the app is uploaded to
CylanceINFINITYfor analysis and scoring (if it has not already been uploaded from another device).
This feature applies to the
Samsung Knox, MDM controls, and User privacy activation types.
