BlackBerry continues to score wins with BlackBerry Cylance and today, it was announced International Container Terminal Services, Inc. (ICTSI) has deployed BlackBerry Cylance technology across their business in Asia, Europe, Africa and The Americas.

"Economies never sleep – but neither do hackers. ICTSI helps to ship goods that power economies around the clock – relying on sophisticated technology for the secure planning and dispatching of every container. 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." Brian Hibbert, Chief Information Officer at ICTSI said.

As part of the announcement, the press release noted ICTSI 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' which would certainly be important as ICTSI has 32 ports in 18 countries, which were all using different security tools.

"With such a diverse portfolio, we found that we had a diverse approach to end-point security. Some sites were using signature-based AV tools, some were using free solutions. Others were using out-of-date technology. This was a huge risk to our organization in today's threat climate – so we applied a single unified approach to endpoint security across our portfolio, delivering significant time, complexity and cost savings for our business." noted Hibbert.

Speaking on the announcement, Evan Davidson, Vice President of Sales, BlackBerry Cylance APAC noted:

"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 – ensuring the company is prepared for the next generation of threats."
