Cylance Showcases AI Powered Endpoint Detection and Response Solution at RSA 2018 Conference

CylanceOPTICS takes endpoint detection and response to the next level with predictive machine learning models

IRVINE, CALIFORNIA, April 16, 2018 - Cylance Inc., the company that revolutionized endpoint security with true AI powered threat prevention, today announced new features for its AI driven endpoint detection and response (EDR) solution for businesses of all sizes with new machine learning threat detection modules for CylanceOPTICS. RSA Conference attendees can preview this new EDR solution at the Cylance Booth (#3911 in the North Hall) this week.

More than half of organizations face a shortage of cybersecurity skills and staffing, according to ESG. With the widening security talent gap and exponential growth of cyberattacks, security teams require tools that accelerate and scale their incident response capabilities. Cylance brings automated incident prevention, reducing the time and human resources required to keep a business secure.

Cylance offers a prevention-first approach with CylancePROTECT®, its leading AI driven threat prevention solution, first reducing the attack surface by preventing most successful attacks. Then, CylanceOPTICS uses advanced machine learning modules to identify fileless attacks, malicious one-liners, and malicious application behavior. When presented with a potential threat, CylanceOPTICS takes decisive action in real time – without human intervention – to stop the attack and avoid the long-term consequences associated with widespread security incidents. By storing and analyzing data locally on the endpoint, CylanceOPTICS minimizes the infrastructure costs and human resources typically required by other security solutions.

“The introduction of machine learning threat detection, self-contained on the endpoint, represents a sea-change for EDR technology,” said Eric Cornelius, Chief Product Officer at Cylance. “Our machine learning modules identify security incidents that would be prohibitively expensive and difficult for any human to uncover. This approach, that minimizes the need for static rules, frees up analysts, who are already understaffed and strapped for resources, to focus on more strategic security activities.”

The new CylanceOPTICS machine learning modules will be available to Cylance early adopter customers worldwide in May. For more information or a demo of CylanceOPTICS, please visit: www.cylance.com/optics or find Cylance at the RSA Conference in the North Hall at Booth #3911.
