Traditional endpoint protection solutions are focused on preventing the initial infection but miss the rest of the adaptive security architecture tasks. Adaptive security architecture is a term coined by Gartner to describe a security posture that includes prediction, prevention, detection and response.
Cylance has been in the prediction and prevention business since the beginning with our AI-driven CylancePROTECT® solution. However, some may not be aware that we also have a strong endpoint detection and response (EDR) solution in our CylanceOPTICS™ offering.
For some, those may seem to be opposites philosophically, but there are two sides to the data protection coin and they are both very complimentary approaches to a robust security posture.
In this week’s episode of DirtySecurity, Edward Preston talks with Cylance Senior Product Manager Matt Morin on the role of an EDR solution for data centers that have a successful prevention security posture.
