IRVINE, CALIFORNIA, January 19, 2016 - Cylance®, the company that is revolutionizing cybersecurity through the use of artificial intelligence to proactively prevent advanced persistent threats and malware, today announced that it has retained RiceHadleyGates LLC to advise the company on a range of strategic cybersecurity issues related to global deployment of its highly sophisticated cybersecurity solutions.
“The cyber threat landscape is continually and rapidly evolving, and the volume of threats and attacks is ever increasing,” said Stuart McClure, Cylance CEO and founder. “Using better cybersecurity technology is a key element of reducing the significant risks posed by these threats, but so, too, is the deepest possible understanding of the sources of the threats and their likely targets. Cybersecurity is now in many ways indistinguishable from national security, and having advisors with the security and intelligence experience of RiceHadleyGates is invaluable to the achievement of our mission of protecting every computer on the planet.”
“Cylance has a track record of preventing successful cyber-attacks by partnering with the U.S. government and other global enterprises for whom the implementation of cybersecurity is a requirement,” said Condoleezza Rice, 66th US Secretary of State and RiceHadleyGates Partner. “We look forward to working with Cylance to dramatically reduce the risk to critical infrastructure and governmental and business assets around the world.”
RiceHadleyGates LLC is a strategic consulting firm based in Silicon Valley and Washington, DC that works with major companies – many of them in the technology sector – to help them expand in major emerging markets and handle the national security and public policy challenges of offering globally technologically sophisticated products and services. The firm’s leadership includes of Condoleezza Rice, Stephen Hadley, and Robert Gates, all of whom held senior governmental leadership positions relating to national security and global affairs. With the unquestioned emergence of cybersecurity as a matter of national and economic security worldwide, their background and experience will provide a critical perspective to Cylance as it executes its mission to reduce the impacts of hacking by both state and criminal actors.
Cylance is already well established in the strategic cybersecurity community with several of the company’s principals having background as federal cybersecurity and national security agency leaders. Many government organizations were early adopters of the company’s advanced threat endpoint security, CylancePROTECT®, and Cylance Professional Services to prevent and protect them from cyber-attacks.
