Component
Description
CylanceGATEWAY
cloud services
CylanceGATEWAY
is a cloud-based service that provides zero trust network access to provide your users with access to your extended network perimeter and protect devices and your extended network from threats.
The
CylanceGATEWAY
cloud services use machine learning to continuously evaluate user behavior and provide adaptive response to network anomaly events. Network anomaly events are detected when a
CylanceGATEWAY
user's network usage pattern is not consistent with past behavior. If the percentage of anomalous events exceeds a set threshold,
CylanceGATEWAY
can dynamically override the user's access control list (ACL) rules to block network access and require the user to authenticate before they can continue.
Management console
The cloud-based management console allows you to configure, manage, and monitor
CylanceGATEWAY
and the connections made through it.
CylanceGATEWAY Connector
The
CylanceGATEWAY Connector
is an optional component that you can install behind your firewall and in private cloud networks to establish a secure tunnel between the
BlackBerry Infrastructure
and your private network. The
CylanceGATEWAY Connector
allows users to communicate with content and application servers behind your firewall using
CylanceGATEWAY
instead of a traditional VPN.
BlackBerry Connectivity Node
The
BlackBerry Connectivity Node
is an optional component that allows
Cylance Endpoint Security
to synchronize users and groups with your on-premises
Microsoft Active Directory
or LDAP directory.
Cylance Endpoint Security
can synchronize users and groups with
Azure
Active Directory
without the
BlackBerry Connectivity Node
.
Devices with the
CylanceGATEWAY
agent or
CylancePROTECT Mobile
app
CylanceGATEWAY
supports
iOS
,
Android
,
Windows 10
,
Windows
11, and
macOS
devices. The
CylancePROTECT Mobile
app installed on mobile devices or the
CylanceGATEWAY
agent installed on desktop devices sends Internet traffic through a secure tunnel to the
BlackBerry Infrastructure
. Users can enable and disable work mode to specify whether data traffic uses the tunnel to the
BlackBerry Infrastructure
.
SaaS applications
Software-as-a-Service applications provide cloud-based enterprise software, making apps and data available to users on multiple devices. Applications and data reside mostly on cloud-based servers managed by the vendor, easing deployment and reducing on-premises infrastructure costs, but requiring security measures that extend beyond firewalls and other perimeter-based security methods.
CylanceGATEWAY
can help secure user access to SaaS applications without requiring traffic to route through your organization's private network.
Internet destinations
Public Internet destinations include any web site, SaaS application, or other entity with an IP address that a client app can connect to over the Internet.
BlackBerry
maintains an ever-growing list of destinations that are known to be malicious.
CylanceGATEWAY
can block apps on devices from connecting to destinations on the list.
If you enable split tunneling, traffic between devices and safe public sites that you specify can go directly over the Internet instead of through
CylanceGATEWAY
.
