IRVINE, Calif., – October 9, 2018 — Cylance Inc., the leading provider of AI-driven, prevention-first security solutions, today announced that it has been recognized by Canalys as a leading market innovator and driver of industry growth. 

In its global endpoint security market update published in September, Canalys—a research and events firm specializing in channel, enterprise, emerging technologies, and mobility markets—evaluated vendor growth across the sector. Cylance received prominent placement in the upper right quadrant of the Vendor Performance Index, which is reserved for high performers—a testament to the company’s strong performance. Based on Canalys estimates, Cylance grew 71% over the same quarter last year.

“We are pleased to be recognized by Canalys as a high performer and new market leader,” said Cylance Founder and Chief Executive Officer Stuart McClure. “It’s our mission to offer true prevention built on artificial intelligence to fortify the front lines of every security ecosystem. We continue to focus on bringing transformational AI technologies to market to ensure our customers are protected from cyber attacks across their endpoints, where they are often at their most vulnerable.”

Cylance investments in research and development have helped redefine an industry formerly rooted in signature-based detect-and-respond capabilities to an industry focused on next-generation offerings that take advantage of technological advancements in artificial intelligence, behavioral analytics, forensics, and more.

“The large number of vendors that have emerged over the last five years has driven innovation in key areas, especially around machine learning,” said Alex Smith, senior director of channels and enterprise research at Canalys. “Next-generation endpoint providers like Cylance are driving the market towards lightweight, simple systems that reduce complexity without compromising security.”

Cylance’s use of proprietary AI for automation is a force multiplier, providing agility and efficiency to security teams that are thinly staffed and inundated with security alerts. The company has developed one of the most comprehensive and proven machine-learning-based platforms in the industry, capable of preventing the most notorious and advanced cybersecurity attacks.
