IRAP certification issued to Blackberry Cylance


First endpoint security provider completes IRAP assessment to deliver services to Australian federal agencies

BlackBerry Cylance has announced that it has achieved the Australian Information Security Registered Assessors Program (IRAP) accreditation. The company is the first endpoint security provider to receive IRAP certification.

Solutions certified under the IRAP program meet the expected Australian government security requirements, as defined by the attorney general’s Protective Security Policy Framework (PSPF) and the Australian Government Information Security Manual (ISM). All federal government entities applying the ISM are restricted to using IRAP-compliant applications running on cloud services listed on the Certified Cloud Services List.

Through independent IRAP accreditation, BlackBerry Cylance applications that run on AWS cloud architecture, which is also certified with a government clearance of protected status, are approved for use in the public sector.
