Continuous Authentication leverages passive biometrics and other usage-based patterns to continuously verify user identity in an unobtrusive fashion. A malicious user is automatically blocked from accessing apps when they exhibit anomalous behavior. This enhances the security posture and at the same time, improves the end user experience over having a static timeout.
BlackBerry Persona creates the best experience for end users while ensuring the best security and compliance posture.
BlackBerry Persona provides a contextual system for Unified Endpoint Management and protection.
BlackBerry Persona allows the user experience design and security/policy posture to be mutually and dynamically optimized, versus in conflict.
BlackBerry Persona adds a layer of adaptive security to your existing UEM or UEM Cloud domain without introducing an additional software footprint.
BlackBerry Persona, a part of the BlackBerry Spark platform, uses analytics-driven security to provide trust within Zero Trust environments. It adapts endpoint security policies based on situational risk:
BlackBerry Persona uses Machine Learning to identify behavioral and location patterns of multiple users to determine location-based risk. Known work locations can also be preloaded.
AI, combined with spatial data, determine a real-time risk score that adapts security policies for the user to create the best experience and security posture. It can:
Anne enters a retail branch
Anne is the regional manager for a major retail bank. With BlackBerry Persona, when she enters a retail branch, her presence is detected based on her mobile device’s geolocation. Her access to privileged apps appropriate for her role is automatically enabled upon her arrival. When she leaves, that access is disabled.
Malicious hacker tries to access Salesforce app
Sally is an inside sales employee who primarily works from a corporate office. When BlackBerry Persona detects a combination of IP address, location and time that aren’t possible based on her last known access, it immediately denies access and takes remediating action to automate a logout, add the IP address to a watchlist and alert BlackBerry UEM of the high-risk event.
Colonel Smith enters a restricted zone
Colonel Smith works at a government military base that has a restricted, high-security zone. With BlackBerry Persona, upon entering this zone, his camera and Bluetooth connection are disabled and access to restricted websites is enabled. When he leaves, camera and Bluetooth are enabled and restricted website access is disabled.
