Architecture: CylancePROTECT Mobile
The management console and the
CylancePROTECT Mobileapp on users’ devices use a secure connection to communicate with the
CylancePROTECTcloud services, which are responsible for creating and configuring user accounts, applying
CylancePROTECT Mobilefeatures and settings to devices, and processing events and alerts in real time.
CylancePROTECTservices use AI and machine learning to determine whether software and websites are potentially malicious and a threat to the security of a device. This AI engine is a core component of several
CylancePROTECT Mobilefeatures, including malware detection, SMS message scanning, and network security validation. At its core, the AI engine enables an aggressive and proactive security strategy, identifying malicious software and websites before they can have any impact on your organization's infrastructure or device users.
The cloud-based management console allows you to manage mobile devices, configure and manage
CylancePROTECT Mobilefeatures, and view device status and the mobile alerts that are detected by the
BlackBerry Connectivity Node
BlackBerry Connectivity Nodeis an optional component that allows
Cylance Endpoint Securityto synchronize
CylancePROTECT Mobileusers and groups with your on-premises
Microsoft Active Directoryor LDAP directory.
Cylance Endpoint Securitycan synchronize users and groups with
Active Directorywithout the
BlackBerry Connectivity Node.
Devices with the
CylancePROTECT Mobileapp installed on
ChromeOS devices scans the device in regular intervals and checks device settings and conditions to identify threats. When the app detects a threat, the user can view details in the app. Whenever possible, the app gives the user direction to resolve a threat and guides them to the device settings where they can address the issue.
Optionally, you can connect
Cylance Endpoint Securityto
Microsoft Intuneso that
Cylance Endpoint Securitycan report a device risk level to
Microsoft Intune. The device risk level is calculated based on the detection of mobile threats by the
CylancePROTECT Mobileapp on
Intunecan execute mitigation actions on devices based on the device risk level.
