Cylance Announces Native AI Platform with Predictive EDR and 24×7 Prevention Services

Single Agile Agent Delivers Predictive Advantage and Automated
Detect-and-Respond Capabilities

IRVINE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”” target=”_blank”gt;#artificialintelligencelt;/agt;–Cylance, the leading provider of AI-driven, prevention-first security
solutions, today announced the Cylance native AI platform, which
delivers a full suite of security solutions through a single, agile
agent for comprehensive attack surface protection with deep-learning Al
algorithms in its DNA to support automated threat detection, prevention,
forensic investigation, and response capabilities to customers worldwide.

Now that Cylance has successfully applied AI to prevent attacks from
executing at the endpoint, it has advanced to another innovative use of
native AI: to detect and respond to threats. By applying sophisticated
machine learning to threat-detection modules, the Cylance AI platform
continuously analyzes changes occurring on each endpoint to uncover
threats that would be difficult, if not impossible, for a security
analyst to find in real time. When a potential threat is identified, the
Cylance AI platform can take selected, decisive, automated actions to
respond and thwart it.

“Businesses using endpoint solutions with AI as an add-on feature
continue to be challenged by over-alerting and the resource demands of
chasing threats,” said Sasi Murthy, vice president of product marketing
at Cylance. “Organizations that require round-the-clock, expert-level
protection across endpoints and networks are better served by a native
AI platform that increases the level of security automation across the
kill chain. Cylance offers an open API architecture that enables
organizations to combine the Cylance AI platform with their existing
security environments for easy integration and streamlined data sharing
across a variety of technology tools. The result? Enterprise
best-of-breed deployments and a stronger return on existing investments.”

The Cylance AI platform can run as a self-driving security operations
center (SOC), where response-to-active threats can be initiated without
human intervention. For senior teams that want a more hands-on approach
to response, Cylance delivers the critical data required to make
response decisions in a powerful, easy-to-use interface. The platform
reduces the frequency and density of alerts and security data passed on
to other controls and supports the industry’s first AI-driven endpoint
detection and response (EDR) solution for on-demand threat hunting and
automated response capabilities.

“As a healthcare company, keeping our endpoints secure can quite
literally be the difference between life and death,” said Jerry Sto.
Tomas, chief information security officer at Apria Healthcare. “Keeping
all of our devices online and shielded from threats is critical to
patient safety as well as business operations. Cylance offers a robust,
lightweight model that integrates easily into our technology stack and
provides predictive detection and threat mitigation capabilities that
free up my team for more advanced work.”

The Cylance AI platform is a unified technology architecture built on
continuous-integration-continuous-delivery (CICD) principles to deliver
enterprise capabilities at high velocity, in keeping with fast evolving
market needs. Importantly, the Cylance AI platform delivers a predictive
advantage against never-before-seen malware on average of 25 months
before it appears online. Cylance deployed malware conviction models in
customer environments that were able to detect and block the top 10
malware attacks—including WannaCry and NotPetya—on average of two years
before those attacks were first detected in the wild. This proven
over-the-horizon prevention capability against known and unknown malware
is the predictive advantage that only a native AI solution, like the one
delivered with the Cylance agile agent, can provide.

All Cylance offerings can now be installed with a single executable.
Current customers have the option to enable Cylance’s full range of
AI-based prevention and EDR functionality simply by purchasing and
activating licenses. The updated AI platform is managed and deployed
through a completely redesigned web-based console that provides access
to the full range of platform functions that include:

  • AI-driven malware prevention
  • Device usage policy enforcement
  • Script management
  • Memory exploit prevention
  • Application control for fixed-function devices
  • Machine behavior + threat hunting + automated responses
  • Static behavior rule-based threat detection and response
  • Machine learning attack-tuned models
  • Root-cause analysis
  • Enterprisewide threat hunting
  • Remote forensic investigations
  • Aggressive containment

Cylance has built the largest AI platform in the industry, enabling it
to offer a portfolio of solutions ranging from enterprise endpoint
protection, detection, and response, to Smart Antivirus for consumers,
to OEM solutions. The lightweight Cylance agent offers high performance
and resiliency and requires only minimal updates to its
multigenerational AI model, providing powerful data science capabilities
using deep learning algorithms designed to protect against future threat
