CylancePROTECT received the Special Jury Award for Best of Show in the Security Product category. The Special Jury Award was presented to Cylance Japan by a judging panel of IT industry experts who carried out a rigorous examination of products and solutions exhibited by over 100 companies at Interop Tokyo 2017.
“We chose CylancePROTECT as Special Jury Award because it utilizes a proper AI mathematical model among many other AI security products, and it supports not only Windows but other operating systems,” said Kazumasa Kobayashi, member of the Interop Tokyo 2017 Award Judging Committee and visiting professor at Keio University, Graduate School of Media and Governance.
“We are very honored to receive this award for CylancePROTECT, the only endpoint solution that received the award in the security product category,” said Morihiro Kinjo, vice president of Japan sales at Cylance.
