Cites Unique Approach to Detecting and Preventing Advanced Cyber Attacks
Irvine, CA -- (July 17, 2013) – Cylance, Inc. today announced that it has been selected by Network World as one of the top ten security companies to watch. The publication recognized Cylance for its ability to identify good from bad files, drivers and executables, whether inside or outside a network, in order to block attacks and malware.
Enterprises and organizations are frustrated with their traditional endpoint defenses. Whether they are anti-virus, host based intrusion prevention or mobile device management focused malware, because they are all signature or behavior based, they miss advanced threats and are incredibly burdensome to install, configure and manage. This issue is further compounded thanks to the level of sophistication found in malware attacks, which traditional measures cannot stop on their own.
"Stopping stealthy intrusions aimed at stealing sensitive information or otherwise compromising networks is the mission of Irvine, Calif.-based start-up Cylance," Network World explained. "Last month in June, Cylance completed controlled beta tests of its first product intended to do this. Called Cylance PrivateDETECT, its endpoint detection and prevention software makes use of Cylance's 'secret sauce' based on algorithms that are supposed to sort out 'good' and 'bad' files, in order to block Windows-based attacks and malware."
Based on Cylance's patent pending Infinity™ classification cloud, its free PrivateDETECT endpoint detection and prevention software is an advanced threat technology that gives organizations unmatched visibility into, and touchless management of thousands of endpoints flowing in and out of its networks. Cylance PrivateDETECT identifies all good and bad data traffic – including those embedded in an SSL session – to protect and defend at the most vulnerable threat entrypoint.

Cylance is the only company to offer a preventive cybersecurity solution that stops advanced threats and malware at the most vulnerable point: the endpoint. Applying a revolutionary artificial intelligence approach, the Cylance endpoint security solution, CylancePROTECT®, analyzes the DNA of code prior to its execution on the endpoint to find and prevent threats others can’t, while using a fraction of the system resources associated with endpoint antivirus and detect and respond solutions that are deployed in enterprises today.
