Cylance Extends AI-Driven Security to Hybrid and Private Networks

NEWS / 06.21.18 / The Cylance Team

Cylance is pleased to announce the availability of CylanceHYBRID™ and CylanceON-PREM™, two new deployment and management options for CylancePROTECT®. Cylance’s flagship endpoint security product now serves any environment: public cloud, private cloud and air-gapped networks.

Nearly two-thirds of enterprise computing still occurs in on-premises data centers, and 90 percent of organizations will adopt hybrid strategies by 2020. Organizations with closed networks, private clouds or limited connectivity face the problem of protecting against both outside and inside threats without exposing their infrastructure to outside connections.

In fact, over half of technology leaders cite security as the greatest challenge to both private and hybrid clouds. CylanceHYBRID and CylanceON-PREM close this gap by bringing AI-driven predictive threat analysis to restricted or completely isolated infrastructures.

“Organizations with strict privacy requirements, such as federal government agencies and EU-based companies, have been targets of a growing barrage of cyberattacks in the past few years,” said Eric Cornelius, Chief Product Officer at Cylance, who previously served as the Deputy Director and Chief Technical Analyst for the Industrial Control Systems Security Program at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

“Traditional tools have proven to be cost prohibitive and ineffective at preventing unknown attacks – the most damaging type of threat. CylanceHYBRID and CylanceON-PREM allow every organization to benefit from our AI-based endpoint security capabilities, regardless of geography, connectivity level and network architecture.”


CylanceHYBRID serves companies operating on restricted networks or with low-bandwidth Internet. With CylanceHYBRID, all CylancePROTECT communications are routed through a single connection and threat detection models are stored locally, reducing connectivity requirements and costs of maintaining a secure environment.


Intended for isolated or air-gapped networks, CylanceON-PREM ensures that organizations with no Internet connection remain secure by deploying the Cylance Management Console and protective agents on the isolated infrastructure. This allows security administrators to update agents without compromising network privacy. CylancePROTECT’s predictive technology, when managed through CylanceON-PREM, also offers security against internal threats like infected USB devices, which air-gapping cannot prevent.

CylanceON-PREM and CylanceHYBRID are available to Cylance customers worldwide today. For more information or for a demo of CylancePROTECT’s capabilities, please find more information here.
