Blackberry Products Undergo Mitre-Led Cybersecurity Evaluation to Address Potential Russian Threat

Mitre has evaluated Blackberry-made endpoint security products for use in efforts to address a group potentially linked to Russia.

These products underwent the ATT&CK APT29 evaluation that tested the detection of cybercrime activities done by a group known as APT29, Blackberry said Wednesday.

ATT&CK builds on open-source methods of reporting an adversary’s operational methods. Private and public sector entities may use ATT&CK to identify network security gaps.

“BlackBerry security products are designed to help protect enterprises and governments from the most sophisticated threats,” said Thomas Pace, vice president of global enterprise solutions at BlackBerry.

Pace added the evaluation served as an avenue to demonstrate the use of Blackberry’s artificial intelligence-driven products against modern cyber threats.

ATT&CK assessed automation, cyber threat contextualization, attack detection and sensor-based surveillance features of multiple Blackberry security products such as Guard, Protect and Optics.
