Cylance Media Relations
Sunnyvale, CA, October 22, 2018 – Cylance Inc., a leading provider of AI-driven, prevention-first security solutions, and Fujitsu America, Inc., a leading information and communication technology (ICT) company, today announced an alliance that will leverage the cyber threat intelligence capabilities of both companies to deliver a more robust, resilient protection and detection security services portfolio. The partnership will deliver advanced protection to enterprise customers utilizing predictive AI-based security solutions and professional services.
Fujitsu began installing Cylance technologies in its global security operations center (SOC) in 2017 in order to secure its customers’ endpoints. With the extension of the global relationship to include the Americas region, customers in the United States can now benefit from Cylance’s industry-leading AI-powered endpoint detection, prevention, response, managed services, and research and intelligence capabilities. The partnership facilitates the direct integration and configuration of CylancePROTECT® and CylanceOPTICS™ into the Fujitsu intelligent SOC and security services to automatically detect and prevent attacks.
“With the rapid escalation of cybersecurity incidents each month, organizations are grappling with how to protect their data with limited personnel and resources,” said Jason Bradlee, Head of Security for Americas region, Fujitsu America, Inc. “Through our partnership with Cylance, customers benefit from operational efficiencies every day from AI-powered protection designed to proactively prevent threats before they cause harm. Our customers can now reap these benefits when managing complex environments containing offline systems, systems with unsupported operating systems, and in mixed OS environments.”
With a large worldwide customer base, the Fujitsu global footprint spans the Fortune 500, mid-market companies, educational institutions, and government organizations. With Cylance deployed globally in conjunction with Fujitsu security advanced monitoring and unified remediation with artificial intelligence platform (“SAMURAI”) and RoboSOC, the company’s “SOC in a box” offering, Fujitsu customers can dramatically reduce cybersecurity incident help desk tickets and more effectively prevent and respond to attacks.
“As a provider of security solutions to companies in almost every industry, Fujitsu knows the importance of helping customers operate their businesses safely and efficiently,” said Didi Dayton, vice president of worldwide channels at Cylance. “Our AI-powered threat prevention technology and services complement Fujitsu global customer offerings. Together with Fujitsu, whose customers manage an average of 30,000 endpoints apiece, we are extending our AI capabilities to deliver big improvements in operational efficiency and proprietary infrastructure management.”
The partnership between Cylance and Fujitsu comes on the heels of the Threat360 assessment that was launched in EMEA and the Americas earlier this year. The Threat360 offering, based on Cylance technology, conducts a thorough analysis of dormant or running threats within an organization’s IT environment.
