Safe browsing with BlackBerry
BlackBerry Protectallows your organization to leverage the real-time risk assessment capabilities of CylanceINFINITY to protect
BlackBerry Dynamicsapp users from malicious websites, phishing attempts, malware, adware, and other web sources that pose a threat to your valuable data.
When a user tries to navigate to a website or open a web link in a
BlackBerry Dynamicsapp, the unaltered URL is sent to
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 Dynamicsapps on the device also 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.
You have full control over the user experience in the
BlackBerry Dynamicsapp when an unsafe URL is detected: you can allow the user to proceed and log information, you can provide a warning and give the user the option to continue, or you can block access to the URL.
You can also add specific domains and IP addresses to the approved list or blocked list in the management console. A
BlackBerry Dynamicsapp will check a URL against the approved lists and the blocked lists before sending it to
CylanceINFINITYor using local machine learning models.
BlackBerry Dynamicsapp keeps a local cache of the recent URLs that have been assessed and uses the cached evaluation (safe or unsafe) if the user tries to access the URL again. Each URL in the cache expires after 7 days or after the user restarts the device. The cache is unique to each
BlackBerry Dynamicsapp and is not shared between apps.
When the user chooses to proceed to a URL after they receive a warning, that URL is also stored in a local cache. If the user tries to navigate to that URL again while it is cached, access is allowed without a warning. These URLs are removed from the cache when the user closes the app.
CylanceINFINITYcollects plain text URLs for analysis and risk assessment. No additional metadata or user identifiers are collected or stored with the URL. The URLs are never shared with a third party or used by
BlackBerryfor any purpose other than providing a safe browsing experience to
BlackBerrycustomers. For more information about
