GDEX deploys CylancePROTECT and CylanceOPTICS to protect customer data

GDEX Bhd is deploying BlackBerry’s artificial intelligence-driven software, putting intelligent cybersecurity at the forefront of its digital transformation.

BlackBerry said that in a strategic shift from signature-based antivirus to prevention-first cybersecurity, GDEX had deployed BlackBerry’s CylancePROTECT and CylanceOPTICS, ensuring continuous protection and detection throughout the company’s entire ecosystem. 

The Canadian software firm said that by simplifying the security software stack with CylanceAI, the express delivery service provider saw immediate results, eliminating malware threats, reducing alert fatigue and, importantly, saving time and resources by minimising human intervention.

GDEX chief information officer Melvin Foong said as competition increases and the supply chain continues to digitise, BlackBerry’s Cylance AI had enabled GDEX to rapidly automate cybersecurity and establish resilience demanded.

“Signature-based software can no longer adequately protect our organisation.

“After evaluating our options, we chose the world’s most mature cybersecurity AI engine to help us deliver our most important priority — ensuring GDEX customer data is secure and trusted,” he said.

Meanwhile, BlackBerry cybersecurity executive vice-president and chief technology officer Shishir Singh said the logistics and supply chain segments are undergoing a period of tremendous growth, but also operating under challenging conditions, with vast ecosystems of end points that are under attack.

“As a provider of intelligent cybersecurity solutions, we could not be more pleased to help GDEX change gear to a proactive and preventative approach that will both deter cybercriminals and, importantly, ensure data integrity,” he said.
