IRVINE, CALIFORNIA, January 11, 2017 – Cylance® Inc., the company revolutionizing cybersecurity with the practical application of artificial intelligence to prevent the most advanced cyberthreats, today was named a Top 50 Startup to Watch in Los Angeles by Built In LA. Cylance is honored to be recognized as a rapidly growing startup in the Los Angeles area among such companies as The Virtual Reality Company, Firefly Games, and Estify.
“Cylance has seen exponential growth since its inception, and that’s largely due to the incredible people who dedicate their time, effort and expertise to develop products that are reinventing the way companies approach cybersecurity,” said Stuart McClure, CEO and president of Cylance. “We have not only developed a product that makes it easier for IT security teams to sleep at night, but we’ve built a company that’s committed to evolving and growing as threats and attackers do.”
Cylance has grown to more than 700 employees in four years and built up its customer base from 200 to more than 3,000 customers in just the past 12 months. The company’s recent $100 million Series D funding round continues to fuel the company’s growth and continued efforts towards researching the world’s cybersecurity threats and developing products to stop them.
“We’re honored to be named a Startup to Watch within a thriving and competitive technology center,” said McClure. “Our accomplishments would not be possible without everyone in the company helping to push the boundaries of artificial intelligence to keep us on track toward protecting every computer, user and thing under the sun.”
