SecureData, the leading provider of managed cybersecurity services announced that it has partnered with Cylance® to offer its next-generation endpoint threat prevention product, CylancePROTECT®.
With the addition of CylancePROTECT® to SecureData’s already rich portfolio of products and services, the company is responding strongly to the evolving threat landscape. Cyber attacks are continuing to increase in frequency and severity, with web-borne attacks the most frequent, whilst the number of zero-day, APT and spear phishing attacks are also on the rise. With attacks becoming ever more complex, multifaceted and pre-tested against anti-virus (AV), legacy endpoint solutions can no longer be trusted to provide adequate levels of protection.
CylancePROTECT® completely eliminates the need for traditional AV software, anti-exploit products, whitelisting solutions and host-based intrusion detection and prevention systems. Its transformational detection and blocking is based on a radically different technological approach to cybersecurity. Unlike reactionary signature, heuristics and behaviour monitoring, which require an Internet connection, Cylance applies artificial intelligence to analyse a file’s characteristics and predict whether it is safe or a threat, preventing malicious files from ever executing on the local host.
CylancePROTECT is a simple, lightweight agent that offers complete protection from system- and memory-based attacks, spear phishing, zero-day malware, privilege escalations, scripts and malicious and potentially unwanted programs, all without the high false positive rates, operational overhead and management complexity of other solutions.
CTO and Founder of SecureData, Etienne Greeff, states: “Cylance is redefining what endpoint protection means. The threat vectors are constantly changing and organisations need to be agile in countering them. With the expertise of SecureData and the technology from Cylance, we have a strong partnership that delivers to our customers the very highest levels of security, across every endpoint.”
EMEA Channel Director at Cylance, Stuart Quinsey states: “We are seeing tremendous interest with partners across the EMEA region, whose customers are desperate for a preventative endpoint solution that really works. We are pleased to be rolling out Cylance with our partner SecureData, breaking new ground in the market to meet rising customer demands in preventing malware and advanced threats for enterprises across the globe.”
