AfrAsia teams up with Blackberry to strengthen data security

AfrAsia Bank has strengthened its cybersecurity strategy to improve its security against cyber risks.

It has just partnered with Grove, a leading cyber security provider and a Blackberry Emerald partner in EMEA.

It will henceforth use the next generation end-point provider through the Blackberry Unified End- point Security (UES) suite along with the Blackberry Guard, a 24/7 Managed Detection and Response.

Meytal Balas, MEA Sales Territory Manager for Blackberry, commenting on this partnership highlighted that “AfrAsia invited BlackBerry and other Endpoint Security market leaders to participate in a Proof of Concept to evaluate our leading next-generation endpoint protection suite of services. Following rigorous testing of the solutions, AfrAsia decided to go ahead with the endpoint protection solution and the entire cyber security suite, including BlackBerry Protect, Optics, and Persona.”

Atish Gungadur, Head of ICT Security at AfrAsia Bank, stated “The AI-powered BlackBerry endpoint security will enable us to gain visibility into the activity of every application on every endpoint, automate threat detection, and respond more effectively to those. The BlackBerry Protect’s artificial intelligence technology and its capacity to prevent ransomware and zero-day threats from being executed is an exceptional solution in helping us face cyberattacks in a smarter way. That not only brings an added value to the Bank but most importantly, it equips us to better secure the data we store for our employees, our customers, and our partners.” 

The most efficient way to prevent a ransomware incident from occurring is to stop an attacker from exploiting a system’s vulnerability with a malicious script or utilizing malware to deposit ransomware on a victim’s computer.

BlackBerry® Protect is an endpoint protection platform (EPP) solution that utilizes sophisticated artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technology to stop both tactics.

Deployed at the endpoint utilising BlackBerry unified agile agent technology, BlackBerry Protect detects and prevents the execution of malware and ransomware in both open and isolated networks.
