The cybersecurity landscape is constantly evolving, with new threats emerging daily. Staying ahead of these threats requires innovative solutions that leverage cutting-edge technologies. One such technology that is gaining traction in the cybersecurity industry is generative AI (Gen AI).

Now, cybersecurity leader BlackBerry has introduced Cylance Assistant, a Gen AI cybersecurity advisor which supports organisations to accelerate decision-making, stopping increasing threats at pace with fewer resources. Cylance Assistant is built on BlackBerry's Cylance AI platform and utilises Amazon Web Services' (AWS) Generative AI service, Amazon Bedrock.

“Cylance Assistant is not just a Gen AI cybersecurity advisor; it's the ultimate one,” says Shiladitya Sircar, senior vice president, Product Engineering and Data Science at BlackBerry. “It helps thwart more threats and empowers your staff to make quicker, more informed decisions, catapulting your security operations to new heights. Cylance Assistant understands context because it knows where you are in your investigation, reducing time spent identifying and remediating risks in a single platform without incurring additional costs for the service.” 

The Cylance Assistant brings together a set of advanced capabilities that leverage the power of Cylance AI to help organisations tackle more threats and empower their security staff to make quicker, more informed decisions. Blackberry says it provides fast, expert guidance and valuable recommendations to security analysts, simplifying complex cybersecurity issues by analysing large quantities of data and combining it with BlackBerry's threat research.

Unlike traditional chatbots, Cylance Assistant understands the context of the security analyst's workflow and provides expert guidance without needing to be prompted. This seamless integration allows for quicker investigations and more efficient resolution of security threats.

One of the key advantages of Cylance Assistant is its ability to identify and block a broader range of threats, including those employing adversarial AI and polymorphic malware. By leveraging the power of Cylance AI, the industry's longest-running predictive AI, security teams can take complete control of their operations and outmanoeuvre sophisticated threat actors.

Moreover, Cylance Assistant adheres to privacy-preserved, responsible AI principles and does not share customer data to train models, ensuring the protection of sensitive information.

Amazon Bedrock helps organisations greatly enhance their cyber security operations and achieve better outcomes, providing foundation model choice from leading AI providers via a single API for companies to build and scale generative AI applications. 

“BlackBerry has a long-standing reputation for its innovative security solutions. Cylance Assistant is a great example of how Generative AI can help solve some of the world’s most difficult challenges,” said Matt Garman, AWS senior vice president of Sales and Marketing. “As BlackBerry continues to drive cybersecurity innovation, we’re proud to offer them the most popular and advanced foundation models with Amazon Bedrock.”
