Enterprise-Grade Security Software Now Available to Consumers in Time for Black Friday and Cyber Monday
IRVINE, Calif. – November 21, 2018 — Cylance Inc., the leading provider of AI-driven, prevention-first security solutions, today announced that Cylance Smart Antivirus is available for purchase on Amazon, just in time for the holiday shopping season.
Cylance is part of the Amazon Electronic Software Downloads (ESD) program designed for fast, real-time downloads that allow consumers to select and install software on the fly without having to wait for mail delivery and without system reboots, confusing configuration options, or security scans. Packages are available for single-device and five- and 10-device offerings over one- or two-year subscription terms.
“We are pleased to be among the first next-generation, AI-powered consumer antivirus solution on Amazon,” said Christopher Bray, senior vice president and general manager of Cylance consumer. “Making our products available on Amazon complements our existing website sales and allows us to help more consumers keep their data and identities safe, especially during the holiday season when there’s more shopping activity and increased threat of cyber attack.”
To help consumers stay ahead of bad actors, Cylance Smart Antivirus provides predictive security to spot and block threats before they have a chance to run without affecting device performance or disrupting the user experience. Consumers who download from Amazon ESD have the additional benefit of immediate protection upon installation, because the Cylance lightweight agent downloads instantly—no activation codes, no waiting.
“Cylance is one of the only companies to offer next-generation enterprise-grade protection for the consumer,” said Bray. “It uses the same algorithms to proactively prevent against unknown threats that its global enterprise customers rely on to keep their networks and assets safe.”
Cylance Smart Antivirus offers a fresh alternative to the noisy, system-slowing, pop-up riddled solutions that frustrate so many of today’s consumers. Everyday internet users now have the option to purchase next-generation software built on artificial intelligence with a set-it-and-forget-it installation that gives consumers true peace of mind and ease of use.
