IRVINE, CALIFORNIA, March 6, 2017 - Cylance® Inc., the company that revolutionized traditional antivirus with AI powered prevention that blocks everyday malware along with today’s most advanced cyberthreats, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Cylance to its annual Security 100 list. This project recognizes the coolest security vendors in each of five categories: Endpoint Security; Identity Management and Data Protection; Network Security; SIEM and Security Analytics; and Web, Email and Application Security. The companies on CRN's Security 100 list have demonstrated creativity and innovation in product development, as well as a strong commitment to delivering those offerings through a vibrant channel of solution providers.
In addition to recognizing security technology vendors for outstanding products and services, the Security 100 list serves as a valuable guide for solution providers navigating the IT security market. The list also aids prospective channel partners in identifying the vendors that can best help them improve or expand their security offerings.
Cylance products and services proactively prevent and protect against malicious actors, enabling a level of security that far exceeds the effectiveness of solutions deployed throughout enterprises, government, and institutions worldwide. Cylance’s award-winning product, CylancePROTECT®, stops malicious software that goes unrecognized by other technologies, without requiring a cloud connection or frequent updates, and all while using a fraction of the system resources associated with legacy antivirus software.
"In an age of cyberattacks and heightened concerns about cybercrime against businesses of all sizes, protecting data has become a top priority, and security solutions are in higher demand than ever," said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. "CRN’s annual Security 100 list honors the expert technology suppliers at the forefront of this thriving field, and supports solution providers in their search for the right vendor partners to help them leverage the rich business opportunities it offers."
"We are honored to be recognized in the CRN Security 100 list for the second consecutive year," said Stuart McClure, co-founder and CEO at Cylance. "It’s a strong validation of Cylance’s AI powered approach, which has proven to not only relieve the incident response burden, but also to be incredibly effective against even zero-day malware and new strains of ransomware. The rapid adoption of CylancePROTECT by the market and the enthusiasm of our valued channel partners continually drive our pursuit to protect every computer, user, and thing under the sun, with AI."
The Security 100 list will be featured in the April 2017 issue of CRN and online at www.crn.com/security100.
