BlackBerry Limited and Deloitte announced that they are collaborating to assist OEMs to secure their supply chains by building mission-critical applications.

Deloitte will use BlackBerry® Jarvis tool to provide open source (OSS) software, common vulnerabilities and exposures (CVE) and software data bill (SBOM) analyses to help its clients in the medical, automotive or aero industry, to ensure safe and secure software as part of the agreement. 

In order to ensure the safety of its traffic management and wider transport infrastructure, the G7 Transportation Ministry has selected the joint software and services of the companies.

“We’re thrilled to partner with Deloitte to help OEMs and those responsible for critical infrastructure better understand their embedded systems security challenges with a view to ensuring their end products are both secure and updated with the most recent security patches. Just as a health-conscious grocery shopper can benefit from scrutinizing nutrition labels on food packages, an embedded software developer can gain a whole host of insights by leveraging tools and expertise that enable them to detect issues in their supply chain that may have real implications for intellectual property disputes, security risks and overall quality,” said Adam Boulton, Chief Technology Officer, BlackBerry Technology Solutions. “

BlackBerry Jarvis is designed to respond to the increasing complexity and threats to cyber-security among multi-stage supply chains. It enables OEMs to monitor their code origin and each software asset in their supply chain to ensure their products are both safe and upgraded with the latest safety patches.

By identifying vulnerabilities, BlackBerry Jarvis address the need for deeper action in minutes. Otherwise, manual scanning would take a large number and impractical time for a large number of experts.

Stephen Meagher, Director of IOT for Risk Advisory, Deloitte said, “Deloitte is very excited to partner with BlackBerry. Our already productive relationship will focus on key mobility and other market opportunities.  We’re confident that BlackBerry’s deep security heritage and expertise complimented by Deloitte’s world leading Risk Advisory teams will create a compelling value proposition for new and existing clients.”
