Scanning URLs in SMS text messages on iOS devices
BlackBerry Protectallows your organization to leverage the real-time risk assessment capabilities of CylanceINFINITY to warn users of potentially harmful links in SMS text messages on
iOSdevices. To protect user privacy, only messages with URLs are assessed.
When a user receives an SMS text message from an unknown contact that contains a URL, the
BlackBerry UEM Clientor
BlackBerry Worksends the message to
CylanceINFINITYin real time.
CylanceINFINITYuses advanced machine learning capabilities and accumulated knowledge from threat intelligence feeds to provide an instant assessment of the safety of the URL. The
BlackBerry Protectlibrary that is embedded in the
BlackBerry Workalso leverages local machine learning models to identify unsafe URLs. If the
BlackBerry Protectlibrary cannot use
CylanceINFINITYfor URL scoring, the local machine learning models are used automatically. This ensures a secure browsing experience regardless of the device’s current context or network connectivity.
New incoming text messages from known contacts are automatically considered to be safe and only messages that contain URLs from unknown contacts are scanned and assessed. When an unsafe URL in a text message is detected, the message is filtered to the junk folder.
CylanceINFINITYcollects the contents of messages from unknown contacts that contain URLs. No additional metadata or user identifiers are collected or stored. The data that is collected is never shared with a third party or used by
BlackBerryfor any purpose other than providing protection from malicious URLs. For more information about
Cylanceprivacy policies, see the Cylance Privacy Notice.
