BlackBerry Limited announced new partners Okta, Mimecast, Stellar Cyber and XM Cyber to its extended detection and response (XDR) ecosystem. These new partnerships will help to deliver a cohesive, holistic view of a customer’s security threat posture.
BlackBerry’s cloud-delivered XDR provides a set of security products and modules designed to interoperate and coordinate on threat prevention, detection, and response, powered by a purpose-built cloud-native unified cybersecurity platform. BlackBerry’s XDR addresses the challenges faced by SOC teams by unifying siloed tools (including select third parties) into security platforms that natively collect, ingest, correlate, and stitch together telemetry collected across the entire attack surface, such as, endpoints, cloud, networks, user, apps and mobile, into its centralized cloud-native data lake.

BlackBerry’s XDR ecosystem is unique in the market in that it is built on a prevention-first platform approach. Unlike competing XDR ecosystems which use a response-first approach, BlackBerry’s prevention-first approach allows threats to be identified in a partner’s telemetry before the threat propagates further in the environment.
“The global shift to remote work arrangements has increased cybersecurity risks beyond experts’ initial estimates,” comments Billy Ho, Executive Vice President of Product Engineering, BlackBerry. “To address the growing number and severity of cyberthreats BlackBerry is expanding its XDR partner ecosystem to work with industry leaders and meet the demands of today’s workplace, delivering comprehensive solutions that include network telemetry, behavioral analysis and continuous authentication, in addition to the capabilities that our partners are providing.”
BlackBerry’s XDR is built on the foundation of BlackBerry’s endpoint detection and response (EDR) workflows, and it expands these across the entire attack surface. BlackBerry’s XDR then applies both built-in threat models mapped to MITRE ATT&CK® TTP and AI-enabled behavioral detection for preventing and detecting KNOWN and UNKNOWN threats in real-time. It also stitches the siloed security signals into a high-fidelity incident investigation timeline summary that helps connect and visualize the broader kill chain view.
BlackBerry is working with additional partners to expand its XDR ecosystem and looks forward to making additional partner announcements in the future.
