CylancePROTECT and CylanceOPTICS: The Natural Selections for Cyber Defense

Legacy antivirus (AV) is going the way of the Dodo, the Wooly Mammoth, and the Great Auk. Signature-based tools had a good run, but evolution marches on. In today’s security environment, there’s no niche left for security solutions that require frequent updates, dedicated hardware, intrusive scans, and an Internet connection to function.

Our competitors know it’s true. That’s why so many next-gen AV companies are jumping on the bandwagon by bolting artificial intelligence-based (AI) features onto their obsolete signature-based products. 

BlackBerry® Cylance® AI-driven endpoint protection, detection and response solutions are a different species altogether:

  • CylancePROTECT® can eliminate 99.1%1 of threats, freeing up IT budget and resources for other strategic business initiatives.
  • CylanceOPTICSextends these capabilities by applying AI to prevent widespread security incidents.
  • Both solutions fully leverage the advanced technology of our native AI platform. Together, they create a solid foundation for your business to achieve a prevention-first security posture and realize a significant return on your cybersecurity investment.

Don’t take our word for it. In May 2019, BlackBerry Cylance commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study that assessed the return on investment (ROI) achieved by one of our customers, a multinational manufacturing firm. In the study, Forrester Consulting determined that over three years, the customer’s investment in CylancePROTECT and CylanceOPTICS produced a ROI of 99% and these risk-adjusted present value benefits2:

  • $8.4 million in savings by decommissioning the legacy signature-based AV product
  • $3.3 million in savings by slashing the time spent investigating and remediating threats
  • $1.9 million (25%) reduction in the expected costs of a major security breach
