Cylance Delivers First AI-driven Endpoint Detection and Response Solution with Introduction of CylanceOPTICS
Cylance® Inc. has released an AI-driven endpoint detection and response (EDR) product for general availability. Named CylanceOPTICS and delivered on the Cylance AI Platform, the EDR augments the prevention capabilities of CylancePROTECT.
CylaneOPTICS simplifies key aspects of threat hunting and attack analysis without requiring cloud connectivity. The Cylance AI Platform serves as a data-science engine that generates specialized machine-learning models to address today’s incident response and investigative needs.
“With the explosive rate of malware growth and other threat vectors, an AI-based solution that automates time-consuming parts of the threat hunting and incident response workflow is important,” said Doug Cahill, senior analyst, cybersecurity, Enterprise Strategy Group. “Enterprises need a way to predict attacks and streamline the threat hunting and incident response workflows. The AI-driven combination of CylancePROTECT and CylanceOPTICS will be a compelling combination for many security teams.”
Today’s security teams work in a threat landscape where over 300,000 new malware variants are created daily. With expert threat-hunting professionals in short supply enterprises need to be equipped with tools that help them scale their existing security teams to protect against these threats. A recent NSS Labs test revealed that CylancePROTECT blocks 99.7 percent of all malware, including new zero-day threats. Cylance’s AI prevention-first approach to security helps businesses scale their security capabilities, reducing the time required to find, investigate and mitigate threats in their environments.
Formel D, a global service provider to the automotive and component supply industry, deployed CylancePROTECT and CylanceOPTICS across user machines, Microsoft Windows Exchange servers, application and database servers to prevent the execution of malware and fileless attacks. “CylanceOPTICS enabled us to perform on-demand enterprise-wide forensic investigations for malicious files, executables, and indicators of compromise. We were able to rapidly find pending threats and use CylanceOPTICS to analyze the origin of the threat and remove it from our enterprise, and this enables us to improve our prevention methods,” said Robert Osten, IT Manager at Formel D.
Key capabilities of CylanceOPTICS include:
- Simple Root-cause Analysis
- Endpoint Visibility and AI-assisted Threat Hunting
- Integrated Incident Response
- Works Independently of the Cloud
