IRVINE, Calif. – November 7, 2018 — Cylance Inc., the leading provider of AI-driven, prevention-first security solutions, today recognized employees at all levels of the organization for their contributions to company innovation and cybersecurity industry leadership.
Cylance Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Stuart McClure recognized outstanding employee achievement ahead of the company’s quarterly business outlook meeting scheduled later this month. “We’re proud of the amazing talent here at Cylance,” said McClure, “It’s inspiring to see such highly capable staff expand and elevate their ideas to push the boundaries of AI and security technology. Both Cylance and the broader security industry are stronger and more innovative as a result of their efforts.”
Since the company’s founding in 2012, Cylance employees have been awarded more than 20 patents and have over 80 applications in various stages of the prosecution process that cover a broad range of inventions in the fields of artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, computer forensics, and privacy-enhancing technologies. The company has won best-in-class awards and recognition from more than two dozen globally-renowned brands, including Forbes, CNBC, Goldman Sachs, Deloitte, and the World Economic Forum.
To date, more than 30 organizations from around the world have recognized Cylance for technological innovation. To keep their fingers on the pulse of new ideas and industry advances, Cylance employees participate in cybersecurity panels and deliver keynote addresses at more than 200 events in a given year, including global events hosted by industry-leading organizations such as Gartner, Forbes, and the Wall Street Journal.
“Our employees continually go above and beyond the routine expectations of a full-time cybersecurity job,” said Daniel Doimo, Cylance president and chief operating officer. “In departments that range from sales and marketing to legal and engineering, Cylancers have held faculty positions or guest lectured at some of the country’s leading colleges and universities, including Berkeley, Columbia, Cornell, MIT, Stanford, Tulane, and UCI, allowing us to continue to attract the best talent from around the world.”
Cylance employees share their security knowledge and expertise with vulnerable entities—even the U.S. government—as evidenced by many hours of congressional testimony designed to make the world safer by educating both CISOs and employees about the security threats facing businesses today. In a notable example of these efforts, the company was named by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform as having played a critical role in discovering, halting and remediating the data breach at the United States Office of Personnel Management. Lawmakers behind the report note, "The significance of the cutting-edge preventative technology offered by Cylance in responding to the OPM data breach cannot be understated." Cylance was able to find things that other tools could not "because of the unique way that Cylance functions and operates. It doesn’t utilize a standard signature of heuristics or indicators, like normal signatures in the past have been done.”
Importantly, Cylance staffers throughout the company routinely work with internal data science and research teams to help build more robust user models and more precise AI algorithms. They also contribute to important scientific and technological journals to speed the development and adoption of new and better cybersecurity models.
