Further detail on innovation at Cylance:
Cylance’s research teams are continually improving our processes, products and ensuring the organization stays at the forefront of technology and threat trends.
While Cylance’s products successfully stop both known and unknown malware based on our previous analysis of hundreds of millions of file characteristics, we never cease our research and development efforts, no matter how good our efficacy rates may be. We believe it is the goal of every hacker and malicious actor out there to try to stay one step ahead of security solutions, therefore, if we rest, they win.
Our Threat Analysis Team continually reviews the malware our product detects and prevents from executing so that our artificial intelligence and machine learning based engine has the latest malware file characteristics to analyze.
Our Product Team continually conducts research on technology best practices and emerging technology trends to ensure our products and development processes also continue to lead the industry. By leveraging artificial intelligence, machine learning and cloud computing, our technology can stay one step ahead of the bad guys, protecting our customers and our own internal systems.
All of these research efforts result in timely, significant product and service improvements.

Cylance is revolutionizing cybersecurity with products and services that proactively prevent execution of advanced persistent threats and malware, enabling a level of security that far exceeds the effectiveness of current industry solutions deployed throughout enterprises, government and institutions worldwide.
Cylance’s award-winning product, CylancePROTECT™, stops what others don’t, without requiring a cloud connection or frequent updates, all while using a fraction of the system resources associated with antivirus and endpoint security software.
Cylance PROTECT is a radically different technological approach to cybersecurity that employs artificial intelligence to analyze the DNA of files before they execute. Cylance integrates a deep understanding of hackers and attack vectors with the most sophisticated artificial intelligence and machine learning, to neutralize virtually all malicious files before they can execute.
Traditional antivirus and endpoint security solutions routinely fail to detect even 50% of these threats, require constant network connectivity to provide protection and access frequent signature updates, consume vast system resources, and are increasingly complex to deploy and manage. CylancePROTECT addresses all these problems in a single solution that delivers measurably better enterprise endpoint security at an attractive, and often times lower, total cost of ownership.
Complementing CylancePROTECT are professional services that provide pre-attack penetration and vulnerability testing, compromise assessments and post-attack incident response. Cylance specializes in securing critical infrastructure and key resources for education, energy, financial services, government, healthcare, heavy industry, oil and gas, retail, technology, and other industries.
Standing apart from a cybersecurity industry reliant upon outdated detection and response models, Cylance secures through prediction and pre-response at the enterprise endpoint, preventing malware and advanced persistent threat breaches before they cause harm.
