2017 TAG Cyber Security Annual Names Cylance a Distinguished Vendor
IRVINE, CALIFORNIA, September 9, 2016 - Cylance®, the company that is revolutionizing cybersecurity through the use of artificial intelligence to proactively prevent advanced persistent threats and malware announced the joint release of the first-annual 2017 TAG Cyber Security Annual -- Practical Handbook and Reference Guide for the Working Cyber Security Professional. Cylance is part of an industry collective of 48 of the nation's foremost cybersecurity vendors participating in the report, which was published by The Amoroso Group (TAG Cyber) following in-depth industry research and analysis.
"We’re very pleased to be part of the TAG Cyber initiative," said Stuart McClure, CEO of Cylance. "The preventive, artificial intelligence based CylancePROTECT® product we offer customers will be an important component of any redesign of enterprise security architectures."
The report details a new urgency for how America's commercial, financial and utility sectors respond to escalating and increasingly complex cyberattacks. It includes a comprehensive analysis of the cybersecurity industry with specific insights from C-level executives and thought leaders. Dr. Edward G. Amoroso, former chief security officer of AT&T and author of six books on cybersecurity, spearheaded writing and researching the report.
"I am so grateful to the entire Cylance team, and in particular their fine CEO, Stuart McClure, for all the great contributions to the cybersecurity industry and for their support of this research," said Ed Amoroso.
The 2017 TAG Cyber Security Annual has been written for information security and technology professionals in all industries with a special focus on U.S. infrastructure companies, including energy, telecommunications, manufacturing, healthcare and utilities. The report will be available at no cost to all users as a free download on the Cylance website and TAG Cyber’s website.
The handbook is centered around a revolutionary new approach to cybersecurity that calls on tech leaders of the largest and most important American enterprises to explode existing infrastructure to disperse data across multiple platforms, offload sensitive information into secure cloud-based solutions and reload systems, policies and personnel to better position them to effectively defend against cyberattacks that are not only likely, but occurring at an increasing rate.
It includes three volumes:
- Volume 1: TAG Cyber Security Fifty Controls details the fifty primary control areas required for CISO teams to be effective in this new era of cybersecurity. These areas include traditional controls such as firewall platforms and two-factor authentication along with non-traditional controls such as security recruiting and security R&D. For each control area, an extensive list of supporting vendors is included to help jumpstart local source selection.
- Volume 2: Interviews with Distinguished Vendor Principals includes in-depth conversations with the thought leaders and distinguished vendor principals. It offers a brief digest of the expert guidance and cybersecurity insights offered by these industry authorities during the research stages of this report.
- Volume 3: TAG Cyber Security Vendor Listings serves as a reference guide to the cybersecurity industry. This comprehensive review includes nearly 1,400 vendors this year, with an additional 500 vendors to be incorporated into the 2018 report.
