SINGAPORE and WATERLOO, ONTARIOÂ â€“ November 19, 2019 â€“Â BlackBerry Limited (NYSE: BB; TSX: BB) today announced thatÂ International Container Terminal Services, Inc. (ICTSI) has deployed BlackBerry Cylance technology across all business units in Asia, Europe, Africa and The Americas to protect thousands of end-points across its global network.Â ICTSI, a global port operations leader based in Asia, is leveraging CylancePROTECTÂ®Â to take a preventative approach against existing and future cyber threats â€“ while unifying its end-point protection strategy with one vendor across its entire network.
Brian Hibbert, Chief Information Officer at ICTSI says, â€śEconomies never sleep â€“ but neither do hackers. ICTSI helps to ship goods that power economies around the clock â€“ relying on sophisticated technology for the secure planning and dispatching of every container.Â Every movement must be on time and secure to deliver the level of reliability we promise: 10 million times per year, twenty-four-seven. Cybersecurity is our priority at ICTSI, and why we need equally sophisticated, AI-driven-technology like BlackBerry Cylance to protect our assets.â€ť
Headquartered in Manilla, Philippines, ICTSI has 32 ports in 18 countries and is responsible for ensuring that gateway ports provide the best service so cargo can move unimpeded. Any delay in ICTSIâ€™s operations, physical or cyber, directly impacts local economies. ICTSI required a solution that was efficient, reliable and easy-to-manage on a large scale, while addressing a variety of complex systems and end-points.
The CylancePROTECT solution is deployed by ICTSI across a diverse range of end-points, from desktops to servers, using AI and Machine Learning (ML) algorithms to detect, prevent and contain existing and new malware â€“ even when systems are offline. Â The company chose CylancePROTECT because it was easy to deploy, consumed minimal resources on systems and consistently detected malware and threats that other anti-virus (AV) solutions missed. Â ICTSI is now extending its threat prevention capability by rolling outÂ CylanceOPTICSÂ®, pushing all detection and response decisions down to the endpoint, eliminating response latency.
Brian Hibbert adds, â€śWith such a diverse portfolio, we found that we had a diverse approach to end-point security.Â Some sites were using signature-based AV tools, some were using free solutions. Others were using out-of-date technology.Â This was a huge risk to our organization in todayâ€™s threat climate â€“ so we applied a single unified approach to endpoint security across our portfolio, delivering significant time, complexity and cost savings for our business.â€ť
ICTSI operates in some of the worldâ€™s most remote locations, including the Democratic of Congo and Papua New Guinea.Â As CylancePROTECT does not require regular software updates, it is ideal for the most challenging environments where reliable connections are not always available. ICTSI IT leaders based in different parts of the world have also found that uncommon software, even installed by privileged users â€“ is automatically scanned and analyzed by the solution; and when necessary â€“ quarantined until deemed safe.
Evan Davidson, Vice President of Sales, BlackBerry Cylance APAC, says, “Today, malware mutates daily, even hourly, making signature-based prevention tools obsolete. In mission-critical industries such as shipping and ports, with legacy systems and connected networks and devices, organizations must think beyond traditional antivirus. Together with our channel partner, NEXUS Technologies, we are proud to help ICTSI move successfully from a traditional AV model to an AI-driven, preventative approach to threat mitigation with CylancePROTECT â€“ ensuring the company is prepared for the next generation of threats.â€ť
Nine of the worldâ€™s 10 busiest ports are based in Asia, an import and export hub that is a crucial part of the worldâ€™s supply chain for many industries such as manufacturing, processing and technology. Â Recently, it was reportedÂ that a cyber-attack on Asian portsÂ could cost as much as $110 billion, or half the total global loss from natural catastrophes in 2018.Â The figure was calculated by simulating the impact of a computer virus carried by ships and which scrambles cargo database records at the ports.
Lionel Ting, Vice President for Business Development, Nexus Technologies, says, â€śVital industries like ports and maritime play a significant role in global economies â€“ but this unfortunately also makes them a target for cybercriminals.Â As a leading enterprise reseller in the Philippines, we recognize the need for customers like ICTSI to embrace new technologies like AI and ML to mitigate risk and increase cyber-resiliency in a threat-rich environment. We are proud to partner with BlackBerry Cylance to deliver trusted, next-generation security for ICTSI along with rapid-response support, helping to protect systems so that they can focus on delivering efficient and secure services.â€ť
CylancePROTECTÂ protects endpoints and organizations from compromise by combining the power of AI to block malware infections with additional security controls that safeguard against script-based, file-less memory, and external device-based attacks. Unlike traditional endpoint security products that rely on signatures and behavior analysis to detect threats in the environment, CylancePROTECT uses ML, not signatures, to identify and block known and unknown malware from running on endpoints. The software delivers prevention against common and unknown (zero-day) threats without an internet connection. It continuously protects an endpoint without disrupting the end-user and provides minimal impact on system resources.
