Protecting devices from network threats

An organization's network can pose potential security risks to users' device data. For example, malicious actors can intercept and alter data transmission, or the encryption and authentication of a
Wi-Fi
access point may not be secure.
CylancePROTECT Mobile
defends against the following network threats:
Threat
Platform
Description
Insecure network connections
  • iOS
  • Android
  • BlackBerry Dynamics
    apps and the
    UEM Client
    try to connect to the
    CylanceINFINITY
    cloud service to detect if there is a rogue actor on the network that is attempting to compromise the device's connections.
  • If the TLS connection to
    CylanceINFINITY
    is not successful,
    CylancePROTECT Mobile
    determines that the network is not secure.
  • Every
    BlackBerry Dynamics
    app on the device periodically performs insecure network checks.
Insecure
Wi-Fi
access point
  • Android
    OS 9 or later
  • BlackBerry Dynamics
    apps and the
    UEM Client
    check the properties of the current
    Wi-Fi
    access point to determine if it is secure.
  • You can define which
    Wi-Fi
    access points are considered insecure and apply a compliance action when a user connects to an insecure network.
  • Every
    BlackBerry Dynamics
    app on the device periodically checks the security of the
    Wi-Fi
    network.
When a weak
Wi-Fi
access point is detected,
UEM
considers the device connected to the network to be out of compliance. You can configure and assign a compliance profile to users so that
UEM
can take an appropriate management action. For example, you can prevent
BlackBerry Dynamics
apps from running on the device until the device is connected to a more secure or trusted network and the device returns to compliance.
