In less than 300 words, summarize the achievements of the company in the nominated category
Cylance has redefined what antivirus can and should do by using artificial intelligence to predict and protect enterprise organizations against malware. With the introduction of CylancePROTECT Home Edition, that same groundbreaking enterprise technology is now available for corporate employees to use at home to protect their and their families’ personal devices.
Companies that offer CylancePROTECT Home Edition for employees’ Windows and Mac devices enable the security team to extend their perimeter protection and reduce their attack surface without infringing on an employee’s privacy, or managing their personal devices.
All the companies in this space have been selling a 30-year-old technology based primarily on their brand recognition. They have not innovated, instead bolting on multiple features and pieces to their product in response to the constantly changing threat landscape. This has resulted in consumer security products that consumers complain are slow, cumbersome, and annoying to use. Based on our artificial intelligence (AI) technology refined over five years in the enterprise security market, CylancePROTECT Home Edition requires no signatures, can protect against malware that hasn’t even been created yet, and is designed and architected to be as simple and unobtrusive to consumers as possible.
Unlike with traditional antivirus software, CylancePROTECT Home Edition users do not need to worry about checking to see if they have the latest signature file updates multiple times per day. The product automatically updates itself with new features, eliminating the need to worry about outdated software, constant updates, and patches.
