IRVINE, CALIFORNIA, July 6, 2017 - Cylance® Inc., the company that revolutionized the antivirus industry with AI powered prevention that blocks everyday malware along with today’s most advanced cyberthreats, is pleased to announce that it has earned a perfect score in SC Media’s 2017 Endpoint Security Group Test. CylanceOPTICS received five-out-of-five stars across all categories: features, performance, documentation, support, and value for money. Cylance was recognized for its ease-of-use and meaningful analytics deriving from the wealth of data in the Cylance cloud.
According to the SC Media review, “With its backend AI engine and big data management in the Cylance cloud, the tool can perform deep analysis of a variety of malware, scripted, and other events that may signal an attack against an endpoint.”
CylanceOPTICS is an artificial intelligence driven endpoint detection and response (EDR) product designed to extend the prevention delivered by Cylance’s award-winning product, CylancePROTECT®. It automates key functions of the incident response and investigation workflow, offering root-cause analysis, scalable threat hunting, and immediate response with consistent visibility into threats against endpoints.
“Receiving five stars in SC Media’s Endpoint Security Group is a testament to the hard work the Cylance team has put into delivering tools that help organizations protect their endpoints from attack without continually increasing expert headcount,” said Shaun Walsh, senior vice president of marketing at Cylance. “Eliminating nearly all threats with CylancePROTECT narrows the field of work response teams must perform, and now CylanceOPTICS automates and simplifies the rest, giving responders time to focus on the most critical security issues.”
The product review offered a “verdict” on CylanceOPTICS, saying, “If you are using Cylance PROTECT, this is a no-brainer. If you are not, it’s a good reason to consider it.” Read the complete SC Media Endpoint Security review here.
