Irvine, CA -- (July 28, 2014)  – Cylance, the first math-based threat detection and prevention company, has been recognized as one of 2014’s hottest emerging technology vendors by CRN, the top news source for solution providers and the IT channel. The annual Emerging Vendors list identifies up-and-coming technology vendors that have introduced innovative new products, creating opportunities for channel partners in North America to create high-margin, cutting-edge solutions for their customers.

“We’re excited to be included in CRN’s top emerging technology vendor list for 2014 as this honor validates feedback from industry analysts, and our global customer base, that we are changing the way companies think about and apply security,” said Stuart McClure, CEO of Cylance. “The advancements of malware authors have far outpaced the capacity of the human defender. It’s time for the old security models to fade out and bring in the new. Now we can simply trust the math.”

Cylance’s fundamentally new approach of applying math to combat malware and advanced persistent threats (APTs) continually evolves, learning how to detect new and evolving threats through an algorithmic process much like the human brain. The next generation endpoint CylancePROTECT and network CylanceV product lines detect and block the execution of both advanced and mundane threats in real time without the need for a cloud connection or constant DAT updates, which miss threats and burden resources.

“Solution providers are always on the hunt for the next big technology trend so that they can bring new solutions to their customers before they even know they need them. These vendors are on the forefront of IT innovation and are offering products and services that channel partners can use to stay ahead of the competition,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company, publisher of CRN. “We congratulate 2014’s Emerging Vendors for creating the next wave of technology that will drive the IT industry forward and for opening the door to new, unique solutions from the IT channel.”

Companies included in CRN’s 2014 Emerging Vendors list were founded in 2008 or later and are actively working with channel partners in North America. The list, along with information about each vendor, will be published in CRN’s August 2014 issue and is also available online at http://www.crn.com/slide-shows/security/300073485/emerging-vendors-2014-security-vendors.htm.
