Cylance Revolutionizes Consumer Security Market with First AI-Driven Next Generation Antivirus - CylancePROTECT Home Edition

Cylance Inc., the company that revolutionized traditional antivirus with AI-powered prevention that blocks everyday malware along with today's most advanced cyberthreats, today announced the availability of the industry's first ever next generation antivirus product for consumers, CylancePROTECT Home Edition. The product will initially be available to employees of Cylance enterprise customers, extending the advanced prevention capabilities of the artificial intelligence (AI)-driven CylancePROTECT from enterprise network endpoints to include the personal devices of employees and their families, significantly reducing corporate information risk.

"Consumers have grown weary of traditional consumer anti-virus solutions rooted in 1990's technology, complaining it slows their systems down, pesters them with pop-ups, and presents them with features they don't need or understand. It's time to bring the strongest protection available to consumers and not just our corporate endpoints," said Christopher Bray, SVP and Head of Consumer at Cylance. "As a father and as an executive, I'm committed to delivering powerful AI-driven technology that truly pro-actively prevents today's advanced malware from executing, stopping ransomware threats like WannaCry dead in their tracks without relying on signature updates, while also delivering a clean, elegant, and easy to understand user experience."

As the name implies, Cylance technology was designed to operate in near silence for users with no performance-impacting daily updates or configuration headaches. At a time when state-sponsored cyber attacks are a near monthly occurrence, CylancePROTECT Home Edition is the first enterprise-grade malware defense option available for corporate IT security teams and risk managers to offer their employees for home use.

Offering a powerfully simple "set it and forget it" experience, security teams will rest assured knowing that their corporate data is secure even when employees access corporate assets from their home devices. Like the version of CylancePROTECT used inside government agencies and on millions of corporate endpoints around the world, CylancePROTECT Home Edition renders new malware and unknown future variants useless through the use of artificial intelligence. Security teams no longer need to wait days for updates to traditional antivirus technologies after new zero-day malware and its variants have already done damage, or to oversee those critical updates to ensure they are implemented organization-wide.

"The Cylance mission has always been to protect every computer, person and thing under the sun," said Stuart McClure, Chairman and CEO at Cylance. "With CylancePROTECT Home Edition, we're taking the next step in achieving that mission by offering the first product to deliver smart, simple, enterprise-grade prevention technology for the home."
