Cylance Releases New Prevention-Focused Security Solutions

NEWS / 02.07.18 / The Cylance Team

Cylance is pleased to announce new releases of their prevention-focused security products, CylancePROTECT® and CylanceOPTICS™, delivering capabilities designed to further decrease the noise and clutter of the security stack.

Over the past several years, the security space has become overwhelmed with new security controls, many of which claim similar capabilities and benefits. With significant pressures to create a best-in-breed security stack for their businesses, security teams have acquired more technology than ever before and layer upon layer of security controls in order to keep their organizations safe. Unfortunately, the opposite generally occurs.

With a complex “detect and respond” focused security stack, teams are consistently one step behind attackers, always chasing attacks instead of preventing them. With the Cylance Prevention-First security solution, organizations have a new, better option for securing their digital assets and optimizing their security resources.

“An ‘always-on’ prevention-first security approach is what all organizations, across all industries need to keep up with the modern threat landscape,” said Rahul Kashyap, Chief Technology Officer at Cylance.

“Our mission is to prevent successful attacks and reduce the security stack noise and clutter that impacts a security team’s ability to truly secure their business.”

These security products enable organizations to significantly improve their overall security posture without adding infrastructure costs or requiring additional resources.

CylancePROTECT: AI-Threat Prevention to include:

  • Interactive Dashboard and Reports: A set of interactive dashboards and reports enable users to maintain constant security situational awareness and easily share that information with others in their organization
  • Consistent Cross-Platform Visibility: With support for Microsoft Windows endpoint and server machines, as well as MacOS endpoints, organizations can maintain situational awareness and respond across their entire environment with one solution
  • Customized Threat Hunting: Users can now edit and create advanced threat hunting capabilities to meet their security needs

“While news coverage of the WannaCry and Petya ransomware attacks were on every network in 2017, we knew Cylance had prevented these zero-day attacks before they could do any harm to our business, thanks to the incident prevention and threat hunting capabilities in CylancePROTECT and CylanceOPTICS,” said Robert Osten, IT Manager at Formel D.

“This capability to prevent unknown malware is what organizations need now and into the future to keep up with threat actors.”
