Company Recognized for Outstanding Innovation in Data Protection
Cylance Inc., the leading provider of AI-driven, prevention-first security solutions, announced it has been inducted into the SC Media Industry Innovators Hall of Fame. The honor recognizes Cylance’s flagship endpoint protection product, CylancePROTECT®, and its leading endpoint detect and respond (EDR) offering, CylanceOPTICS™, as among the best of the best in data protection innovation.
“As a result, the technology does not require signatures to identify malicious software activity, which translates into a predictive approach that blocks ‘bad’ software based on behavior patterns.”
Inductees to the Innovators Hall of Fame are acknowledged by SC Media for sustained innovation over time in both technology and business. Cylance has consistently been honored as an Industry Innovator in the Data Protection category for the past three years in recognition for its innovative AI-driven security solution for prevention, detection, and response at the endpoint.
“We are proud to be selected for our unwavering commitment to innovation,” said Cylance Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer Stuart McClure. “We continue our passion for developing transformational AI technologies that our customers can rely on to protect their data at the endpoint, where it is often most vulnerable.”
Cylance was among the first to market with an artificial intelligence-driven data protection offering, and it now leads the industry with its predictive AI platform. The company’s ongoing investment in research and development has contributed to the evolution of the entire cybersecurity industry, an industry once limited by signature-based detect-and-respond capabilities.
“Cylance founders believed signature-based solutions had outgrown their usefulness and launched CylancePROTECT four years ago. Patterning the attack vectors used in malware, the company built an Artificial Intelligence (AI) mathematical model that differentiates between good and bad behavior,” said Rob Cote, program director, SC Lab. “As a result, the technology does not require signatures to identify malicious software activity, which translates into a predictive approach that blocks ‘bad’ software based on behavior patterns.”
Cylance has developed one of the most comprehensive and proven security platforms available, leveraging artificial intelligence, behavioral analytics, forensics, and more to prevent the most advanced and malicious cyber attacks. The company’s use of proprietary AI for automation across endpoint protection and EDR is unique in the industry.
