Future-Proof Endpoint Security
CylancePROTECT™ redefines what antivirus (AV) can and should do for your organization by leveraging artificial intelligence to detect AND prevent malware from executing on your endpoints in real time.
Cylance has developed the most accurate, efficient and effective solution for preventing advanced persistent threats and malware from executing on your organization’s endpoints. By taking a mathematical approach to malware identification utilizing patent-pending, machine learning techniques instead of reactive signatures and sandboxes, CylancePROTECT™ renders new malware, viruses, bots and unknown future variants useless.
A Positive Match, Every Time.
At the core of Cylance’s unprecedented malware identification capability, a revolutionary machine learning research platform 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.
How It Works
CylancePROTECT™’s architecture consists of a small agent that integrates with existing software management systems or Cylance’s own cloud console. The endpoint will detect and prevent malware through the use of tested mathematical models on the host, independent of a cloud or signatures. It is capable of detecting and quarantining malware in both open and isolated networks without the need for continual signature updates.
Defense requires applying the best protection at the most vulnerable locations – the endpoints. Cylance’s mathematical approach stops the execution of harmful code regardless of having prior knowledge or employing an unknown obfuscation technique. No other anti-malware product compares to the accuracy, ease of management and effectiveness of CylancePROTECT™.
A University Held For Ransom
When the financial aid office of a Northeastern university fell victim to a CryptoLocker variant, CylancePROTECT™ was able to immediately quarantine 183 pieces of unique malware already present, and 107 additional potentially unwanted programs. Of those malware samples, 35 were completely missed by every other antivirus engine.
An Oil Company Puts Its Computers Back To Work
A U.S. regional oil and gas company switched antivirus technology in 2011 in an effort to improve detection rates. But the new product they selected failed to show any significant advantages, and resulted in excessive latency on many machines. CylancePROTECT™ was the answer to both issues.
Getting Granular With A Global Network
A $40 billion multi-national financial services corporation based in New York City needed a full Compromise Assessment on all servers, desktops and laptops across 3,000 global hosts. Cylance was able to extract insightful data from all 3,000 hosts in just a matter of days using a lightweight, agent-less system that reported meta data back to Cylance.
Big Government: A Hacker’s Dream
Government agencies are the high-profile targets that cybercriminals dream of infiltrating. Cylance has deep experience working with government agencies to remediate and repair damage following high profile threats, and deploying effective preventive measures to detect existing vulnerabilities and stop future attacks.
An Insurance Company Gets Some Coverage Of Its Own
A NYSE-listed insurance holding company suffered a compromise event that spanned a significant number of hosts. They were notified about the breach by an outside agency during a security assessment and were urged to seek assistance immediately. Within 30 minutes of evaluating CylancePROTECT™, the product was deployed on their highest-priority endpoints.
From Russia… With Love
An international retailer with hundreds of locations worldwide suffered a compromise that resulted in the theft of millions of credit card numbers. They were notified about the breach by the United States Secret Service after the agency purchased a large batch of stolen credit cards from Russian hackers, with all cards tracing back to the retailer. Within hours, Cylance identified the initial source of the breach, an employee laptop infected with malware from the ZeroAccess family which served as a pivot point for the attackers.
An Ounce of Prevention Beats A Pound of Detect-And-Respond
A US-based healthcare provider’s “detect-and-respond” approach to Cyber Security had the company’s IT department, and security budget, chasing threats after the damage had already been done. With over 400 locations nationwide, directly supporting over one million patients, the company could not afford to compromise patient data or risk regulation violations. The company’s CIO decided to focus on preventive endpoint malware detection as a fundamental shift in their approach to mitigating future risks, and CylancePROTECT™ was a natural fit.
A Top-Tier Provider Lightens Up On Resource Drain
One of the largest healthcare systems in Oklahoma needed endpoint protection for compliance purposes and wanted a lightweight, next-generation solution that would be free of resource drain. The solution would need to be transparent to employees while still mitigating ransomware, zero-day attacks and other exploits. Cylance demonstrated a very high level of endpoint protection and eliminated some highly complex threat vectors, including a sophisticated PowerShell script attack.
