Zurich North America Insurance and Advisen Ltd. has released the tenth annual Advisen cyber survey of corporate risk managers and insurance buyers revealing current views about information security and cyber risk management. This year's survey features the highest percentage of cyber insurance buyers ever – nearly 80 percent carry some level of cyber insurance (55 percent of respondents with cyber coverage have a stand-alone policy). This take-up rate for cyber insurance has steadily climbed since 2011, the first year of the survey, when just 34 percent of respondents bought some type of cyber coverage.

Launching BlackBerry Jarvis 2.0, BlackBerry to Address Global Embedded Cybersecurity Landscape

BlackBerry | July 27, 2021

BlackBerry Limited (NYSE: BB; TSX: BB) has announced the release of the latest edition of the company's flagship software composition analysis tool, BlackBerry Jarvis 2.0. A SaaS version of the original Jarvis capabilities is introduced in the BlackBerry Jarvis 2.0. This provides integrators and developers a more focused and user-friendly feature set around the three most important areas, which those building mission-critical applications want to authenticate to confirm the superiority of their multi-tiered software supply chain; Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE), Open-source Software (OSS), and Software Bill of Materials (SBOM) management. In addition, to empower teams to keep software protected from all known concerns based on the illegal intelligence BlackBerry Jarvis 2.0 provides, the online end-user dashboard of the tool has also been improved with detailed restraints and advisory flags. Designed to address the growing cybersecurity threats and increasing complexity among multi-tiered software supply chains within the automotive, medical, and aerospace industries, BlackBerry Jarvis 2.0 permits OEMs to examine the attribution of their code and every single software quality that comes into their complete supply chains to confirm their products are both safe and modernized with the most modern security reinforcements. BlackBerry Jarvis 2.0 addresses the need to identify and remediate vulnerabilities by identifying them, then providing deep, actionable insights in minutes – something that would otherwise involve manually scanning that would take large numbers of experts and an impractical amount of time. About BlackBerry BlackBerry offers intelligent security software and services to governments and enterprises globally. Including 195M vehicles, The Company secures more than 500M endpoints.
