The award was presented Tuesday, June 7 at the annual SC Awards Gala held at Old Billingsgate, London. "Cylance technology’s unique incorporation of machine learning and artificial intelligence to predict new and emerging attacks on the endpoint is saving nights and weekends around the globe,” said Cylance CEO Stuart McClure. “Receiving this recognition from such an esteemed organization further empowers our mission to protect every endpoint under the sun. While conventional solutions consistently miss both advanced and commonplace attacks, Cylance prevents zero-day and mutated malware from executing in mere milliseconds, demonstrating value immediately above and beyond the age-old technologies in the market today."
Each year, a handpicked panel of information technology (IT) security experts from the private and public sectors review hundreds of entries and narrow the field down to a select group of finalists. These finalists then go through a rigorous, in-depth analysis that includes applicable research, analyst reports, and/or product reviews. CylancePROTECT was determined as this year’s winner in the Best Emerging Technology category after a thorough and comprehensive analysis of each finalist's strengths.
"It is so important to encourage and praise innovation, recognize those who raise the bar, and reward exemplars who facilitate best practice,” said Tony Morin, Editor in Chief, SC Magazine UK. “Cylance is a great example of this within the industry."
The SC Magazine Awards Europe is lauded as one of the most prestigious awards for IT security professionals and products. The awards recognize the best solutions, services and professionals that work around the clock to defend against the constantly shifting threat landscape in today’s marketplace.
