Cylance is transforming the cybersecurity industry with proactive and preventive products and services. Headquartered in Irvine, California, and founded in July 2012 by a distinguished team of industry professionals and scientists, the company is redefining the enterprise endpoint standard of protection by preventing over 99% of threats from ever executing.
Cylance’s next-generation endpoint threat prevention product, CylancePROTECT, is the only technology that stops over 99% of malware. It completely eliminates the need for traditional antivirus software, anti-exploit products, whitelisting solutions and host-based intrusion detection and prevention systems. PROTECT’s transformational detection and blocking is based on a radically different technological approach to cybersecurity. Unlike reactionary signature, heuristics and behaviour monitoring, which require an Internet connection, Cylance applies artificial intelligence to analyse a file’s characteristics and predict whether it is safe or a threat prior to the file executing on the local host.
PROTECT is a simple, lightweight agent that offers complete protection from system- and memory based attacks, spear phishing, zero-day malware, privilege escalations, scripts and malicious and potentially unwanted programs, all without the high false positive rates, operational overhead and management complexity of other solutions. With PROTECT, it’s now possible to set and meet much higher standards for endpoint security. We stop the threats that others can’t.
Complementing Cylance’s revolutionary technology product is a set of professional services that provide pre-attack penetration and vulnerability testing, compromise assessments and post attack incident response. Cylance’s seasoned team of experts also offers specialized consulting in the areas of threat modelling, industrial control systems, medical devices, as well as point of sale and other embedded systems.
Cylance’s cyber threat expertise includes a SPEAR (Sophisticated Penetration, Exploitation, Analysis and Response) research team that makes it more difficult for threat actors to get away with malicious operations. The SPEAR team investigates various software, applications, infrastructures and systems to expose and disrupt hackers. Cylance’s SPEAR team produced the report that helped shut down one of the largest Iranian cyberattack campaigns uncovered to date.
Cylance is the only company to design a holistic, preventive security approach that combines technology, people and process to reduce the surface area of attacks and stop over 99% of malware at the most vulnerable point of entry – the endpoint.
