BlackBerry India plans more than 100 employees in cybersecurity hub

BlackBerry announced that it is expanding its software development capability with a new cybersecurity hub in India, with facilities dually located in Bengaluru and Noida.
BlackBerry is also adding local expertise to its global software and services teams in multiple locations, as well as using Cylance AI to help stop cyberattacks in India and the Asia Pacific (APAC) region. Cylance AI is BlackBerry’s next-gen cybersecurity software.

“By expanding BlackBerry’s software and services footprint to India, we will enhance support for customers and partners in APAC, while nurturing the next generation of cyber-defenders who want to upskill in AI and Machine Learning,” Shishir Singh, Chief Technology Officer, BlackBerry Cybersecurity, said in a statement.

This new regional expansion plan will augment BlackBerry’s existing software and services teams based in Canada, the US and Europe.

By the end of 2023, BlackBerry’s India cybersecurity hub plans to have more than 100 employees in areas such as Generative AI and Machine Learning (ML), data science and analytics, threat intelligence, networks, Unified Endpoint Management (UEM), cloud and software development.
