BlackBerry launches rebranded CylanceGUARD as CylanceMDR

CylanceMDR is an Expert Driven and AI-Powered Managed Detection and Response Solution

BlackBerry today launched a new and expanded CylanceMDR, offering comprehensive Managed Detection & Response (MDR) protection powered by the Cylance AI platform and augmented with security operations center analysts for 24×7 threat coverage.

CylanceMDR (formerly CylanceGUARD) now offers three new packages – Standard, Advanced, and On-Demand.

Each package is designed to address the unique cybersecurity challenges businesses face today, from industry-leading AI detection to expert support, providing a comprehensive solution for all.  

CylanceMDR includes hands-on onboarding, alert triage, investigation, managed threat hunting, digital forensics, comprehensive incident response, and critical event management. It’s also supported by advisory and tuning services and is backed by a $1M guarantee.

CylanceMDR also offers an “On-Demand” solution tailored exclusively for customers with established security teams seeking in-depth investigation and response to threats. This unique service offers direct assistance, threat triage, and thorough investigation and response capabilities. It serves as a valuable addition to customers’ existing security frameworks, empowering them to tackle emerging threats and navigate complex security incidents with confidence.  

“CylanceMDR offers more than just industry-leading technology; you’re getting a true AI-driven MDR fueled by proprietary threat intelligence. But we know it’s not enough to have the right technology. The key is having the right team to back you up,” said Nathan Jenniges, SVP and General Manager at BlackBerry Cybersecurity.

“Our philosophy is to combine our technical excellence with our human expertise to provide unparalleled support to organizations of any size. By partnering with our award-winning SOC team, you’re essentially augmenting your team with ours, capable of managing the full spectrum of cybersecurity challenges.”

The Cylance AI platform powers all three packages. In independent testing, Cylance AI threat detection acted up to 13 times faster, preventing 98 percent of attacks earlier in the kill chain. The net impact of more effective protection and less strain on IT resources makes deploying CylanceMDR up to 85 percent less expensive than building an in-house SOC.
