Cylance Smart Antivirus: Enjoy Our No-Cost License Offer!

NEWS / 08.16.18 / The Cylance Team

Cylance is pleased to announce a no-cost trial period for our award-winning Cylance Smart Antivirus software, and with no credit card required. The offer is available for a limited time, between now and November 9, 2018, to any U.S.-based user. 

Cylance Smart Antivirus provides peace of mind and ease of use by extending the enterprise-grade artificial intelligence (AI) of CylancePROTECT® to consumers to protect their personal devices.

This next-generation software is designed to proactively predict and block never-before-seen threats in order to help keep personal data secure, and it does it without bogging down your system performance.

“It’s no surprise that ‘it slows my system down’ is a common refrain, and that traditional antivirus is seen by many as a tolerated and necessary evil. We designed Cylance Smart Antivirus to offer advanced protection with little system performance impact,” said Christopher Bray, general manager of Cylance Consumer. 

“Our approach to threat protection is deliberate and by design. We believe that our AI technology, which uses powerful algorithms similar to our enterprise product, makes many of the additional system-slowing features in other products redundant and unnecessary.”

Other antivirus solutions rely on reactive, signature-based technologies that slow down systems, bombard users with pop-up notifications, and require someone to experience some form of infection for before they can begin detecting the malware and protecting anyone else.

Cylance Smart Antivirus uses machine learning and AI to predict, spot, and block threats before they have a chance to run - regardless of where the threats are launched. Now, that protection is available at no cost to all U.S-based users at no cost for a limited time.

“Our commitment to a worry-free ‘set it and forget it’ philosophy extends to all areas of the user experience. Unlike some, we don’t have a busy user interface on the systems we protect, nor the sometimes-bewildering settings offered. We recognize that users have varying degrees of technical expertise and interest. We don’t expect them to be security experts,” Bray explained.

“That’s why we’ve pushed settings for all the devices protected - Macs and/or PCs - into a cloud-based dashboard that can be accessed from any Internet-connected device by the de-facto IT person in the family who has taken on the task of protecting everyone in the family.”

Cylance will provide a free license of Cylance Smart Antivirus to any subscriber from now until November 9, 2018.  Users can register for their free license without requiring a credit card HERE.
