BlackBerry and Deloitte announced the two organisations are teaming up to help OEMs and those building mission-critical applications secure their software supply chains.

As part of the agreement, Deloitte will leverage BlackBerry’s flagship software composition analysis tool, BlackBerry Jarvis to provide Open-source Software (OSS), Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) and Software Bill of Materials (SBOM) analysis on behalf of their clients across the medical, automotive and aerospace industries, empowering them to keep software safe and secure based on the actionable intelligence the platform provides.

A G7 Transportation Ministry has selected the companies’ joint software and services offering to ensure the security of its traffic management and broader transportation infrastructure, the companies said.

“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,” said BlackBerry Technology Solutions chief technology officer Adam Boulton.

“Just as a health-conscious grocery shopper can benefit from scrutinising 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.”

Designed to address the increasing complexity and growing cybersecurity threats among multi-tiered software supply chains, BlackBerry Jarvis empowers OEMs to inspect the provenance of their code and every single software asset that comes into their overall supply chains to ensure their products are both secure and updated with the most recent security patches, the companies stated.

BlackBerry Jarvis addresses the need to identify and remediate vulnerabilities by identifying them and then providing deep actionable insights in minutes – something that would otherwise involve manual scanning that would take large numbers of experts and an impractical amount of time.

“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,” said Deloitte director of IOT for risk advisory Stephen Meagher.
