CylancePROTECT® Selected by SANS Community as Best Endpoint Protection Product of 2016

IRVINE, CALIFORNIA, March 29, 2017 – Cylance® Inc., the company that revolutionized traditional antivirus with AI powered prevention that blocks everyday malware along with today’s most advanced cyberthreats, announced that the SANS community has named CylancePROTECT® as the winning product for the Best of 2016 Awards in the Endpoint Protection category.

The SANS Institute’s Best of Awards are not driven by vendors, but by security operations professionals and managers with direct experience using security products. Products and services nominated to win Best of Year awards have been successfully used to provide increases in both the effectiveness and efficiency of cybersecurity programs.

Cylance products and services proactively prevent and protect against malicious actors, enabling a level of security that far exceeds the effectiveness of solutions deployed throughout enterprises, government, and institutions worldwide. CylancePROTECT stops malicious software that goes unrecognized by other technologies, without requiring a cloud connection or frequent updates, and all while using a fraction of the system resources associated with legacy antivirus software.

“Being selected the best endpoint security product by the information security community – those using CylancePROTECT to defend their organizations’ information every day – means more to us than any other type of award we receive,” said Stuart McClure, co-founder and CEO at Cylance. “All of us at Cylance grew up in that community and nothing pleases us more greatly than knowing we are helping these skilled specialists fight and win this battle.”
