IRVINE, CALIFORNIA, August 4, 2016 - Cylance® Inc, the company that is revolutionizing cybersecurity through the use of artificial intelligence to proactively prevent advanced persistent threats and malware, has announced that its flagship product CylancePROTECT® now has seamless connections to Splunk® solutions, LogRhythm®, Sumo Logic and other industry-leading security incident and event management (SIEM) technologies, dramatically simplifying proactive prevention of attempted cyberattacks for enterprise security teams.
"In order to be effective in the 24/7/365 threat landscape, enterprise security teams need to be able to leverage their existing best-of-breed tools in collaboration with new, preventive approaches," said Glenn Chisholm, Chief Technology Officer at Cylance. "Our integrations and connectors with leading SIEM tools give incident responders the assurance of a proven preventive solution that also helps them work faster through real-time visibility into the threats that are blocked by CylancePROTECT."
CylancePROTECT is a next-generation anti-malware product that uses artificial intelligence instead of reactive signatures and sandboxes, thereby rendering new malware, viruses, bots and unknown future variants useless. As a result of its integrations with the market's most widely accepted SIEM products, CylancePROTECT can send alerts about the devices on which newly identified malware was attempting to execute, the action taken, as well as additional metadata. The product is integrated with or offers connectors to the following products:
"LogRhythm is pleased to be partnering with the Cylance organization, which we believe is taking a unique, leading-edge approach to malware and endpoint protection," said Matt Winter, Vice President of Business and Corporate Development at LogRhythm. "Combining the malware and endpoint telemetry provided by CylancePROTECT with the petabytes of other machine data that the LogRhythm security intelligence platform collects from across the distributed environment enables our customers to detect, prioritize and ultimately neutralize threats with unprecedented levels of speed and accuracy. Leveraging early indicators of malware compromise is vital in helping our customers reduce the time to detect and respond to threats and thereby decrease the risk of experiencing a high-impact data breach."
"We are excited to be part of Cylance’s partner ecosystem to deliver cloud-native security analytics for modern-day applications and infrastructure. Today's security teams are looking for ways to improve their security posture and gain visibility as they move workloads to the cloud," said Bruno Kurtic, Founding VP of Product and Strategy for Sumo Logic. "By leveraging our machine learning technology to help identify anomalies, trends and behavior patterns, we are providing joint customers with a holistic view to reduce the time to identify and resolve threats across the enterprise."
At the core of Cylance’s unprecedented malware identification capability is a revolutionary machine-learning research platform that harnesses the power of algorithmic science and artificial intelligence. It analyzes and classifies hundreds of thousands of characteristics per file, breaking them down to an atomic level to discern whether an object is "good" or "bad" in real time.
About Cylance® Inc.
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.
