Irvine, CA -- (October 4, 2012) - Cylance, Inc., a stealth security product and services company dedicated to solving large and complex security challenges, today unveiled its first phase of announcements with the availability of its Presponse security service lines, which include critical infrastructure and key resources (CIKR), embedded security, assessments, and incident response/forensics.
Presponse is a more than a word, more than a concept. It describes a new way of thinking about security services delivery. Presponse is preventative pre-detection response that will not only detect a compromise inside an organization, but also determine its attack vector and source, and predict the most likely path of attack for the future. The idea behind Presponse is that it is a way of looking at the problem of security that exposes it to a holistic, objective and predictive eye – and it's a crucial part of Cylance's new services.
"Today, computers from around the world can be used to affect the physical world in a severely negative way. These systems that control that physical world have rarely been designed, architected or developed securely," said Stuart McClure, CEO/President of Cylance, Inc. and former Global CTO of McAfee. "Organizations need easy-to-understand solutions to these fundamental security issues that also work behind-the-scenes, unearthing their flaws; the Cylance presponse services identify and protect from these breaches or malicious attacks and is just one of the many reasons why we started Cylance."
Cylance's services, which are now available to the corporate and government markets, include:
Critical infrastructure and key resources: a specialized service focused on industrial control systems, secure architecture and design, and network and application assessments. The world of CIKR includes energy, telecommunications, banking and finance, chemical, water, healthcare, emergency services, and defense industrial base, among others.
Embedded: embedded penetration testing, application penetration testing, threat modeling and SDL creation on any Internet-connected devices and the security risks associated with them.
Assessments: a number of elite capabilities leveraging the vast experience and global reach of the Hacking Exposed series to perform web, application, host, database, network and social engineering assessments. On top of these services, Cylance offers strategic services such as risk assessments and staff augmentation. All of these assessment services are meant to deliver a holistic approach to understanding the true risk in any environment and preventing an inevitable breach.
Incident Response and Forensics: malware analysis, enterprise compromise assessment, digital forensic investigations, IR staff augmentation and investigations, combined with talented experts and technology that helps automate the discovery of malicious activity, either past or present, in any environment, in a low touch and almost transparent way.
"Knowing how a malicious actor like a cybercrime gang, a nation-state actor, or a hacktivist might attack an environment is essential to understanding how to respond to a breach," said Corey White, VP of Professional Services at Cylance. "The world looks at the problem by looking back, rather than predicting the future through past knowledge. Presponse flips that around and in doing so solves that dilemma."
