Think Beyond Traditional Antivirus


For years, prevention products’ primary threat protection was based on signatures. Assuming all attacks at a business had been seen before, using signatures made sense. Today, malware mutates daily, even hourly, making signature-based prevention tools obsolete. It is time to think beyond traditional antivirus. Think CylancePROTECT.

How Cylance is Different:

When it comes to threat detection, Cylance is an entirely different beast when compared to their competitors. Cylance uses artificial intelligence (via math models and machine learning) to determine whether or not the file an end-user just downloaded is a threat or not.

Only an artificial intelligence approach can identify and prevent both known and unknown cyber threats from ever executing or causing harm to your endpoint.

Using a breakthrough predictive analysis process, Cylance quickly and accurately identifies what is safe and what is a threat, not just what is on a blacklist or whitelist.

By coupling sophisticated machine learning and artificial intelligence with a unique understanding of a hacker’s mentality, Cylance provides the technology and services to be truly predictive and preventive against advanced threats.

From their cloud-based supercomputer, Cylance is continuously obtaining hundreds of millions of files from various places and extracting the information they need to find and eliminate threats to your system.

Cylance has learned the difference between good and bad software without having to check or download vast databases of virus signatures regularly, and it only takes up to 30 megabytes of physical hard drive space per instance.

Unlike the competition, Cylance PROTECT is easy to manage, has a minimal system impact (typically using less than 1% of your system resources) and requires no Internet connection, performing entirely on the local host for threat detection and protection. Cylance only needs an update when it improves its model.


Unbeatable Detection – Only an artificial intelligence approach can identify and prevent both known and unknown cyber-threats from ever executing or causing harm to your endpoints

No Internet Required – Unlike other antivirus and endpoint detection and response vendors that require connecting to a cloud to be effective, CylancePROTECT® offers threat prevention on the local host without an Internet connection.

Low Resource Usage – Excellent protection shouldn’t impact a system. PROTECT uses less than 1% CPU with a tiny memory footprint. CylancePROTECT® wins back valuable system resources and extends the life of existing hardware.
