"Cylance Review"

What do you like best?

Cylance is one of the few anti-malware programs that protects while using minimum system resources. It just sits in the background, protecting our users. It took little to no time to implement and it has taken little to no extra effort to maintain. It keeps itself up-to-date and Cylance pushes regular update to keep us safe from the latest security threats. There was a breach last year that affect A TON of users world-wide, but Cylance was one of the few companies that was ahead of the curve and protected us.

What do you dislike?

I have yet to find a problem or something I dislike about Cylance. Their product is solid, easy to use and easy to implement.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do it! Cylance has been good to us and their online portal is clean and useful.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We now have peace of mind that our users are protected. We aren't wondering if their anti-malware is out of date.

"Easy to Use, Protects Against Malware"

What do you like best?

Cylance was able to protect against the WannaCry vulnerability using their AI technology. What's interesting is that even their first version of their software was able to protect again WannaCry before the actual vulnerability came out. Deployment is easy and you can configure the software so that it requires a password to uninstall. What I like best is the fact that you don't have to rely on continual antivirus definition updates. The administrator console is easy to use and allows for exporting. It also integrates with Splunk. you also have the ability to set different policies for different hosts.

What do you dislike?

The search query in the administrator console could be improved so that when searching by MAC address, you don't need to put it in the format required. It would be nice if organizations could install this on prem instead of relying on the admin console to be hosted by Cylance.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I highly recommend this product. It can be configured so administrator's receive alerts whenever a host is infected.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

CyalncePROTECT allows you to protect your hosts against malware and other malicious viruses. It uses AI to check files and process before they are run. The biggest benefit of Cylance is that it has protected our hosts during all of the big name ransomware and vulnerability campaigns.

What Antivirus solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Works well"

What do you like best?

The client for Cylance is pretty lightweight and has a no frills sort of look to it.. It gives you the info you need at a glance about threats on your pc

What do you dislike?

The backend management interface can be slow at times but it is robust. It does seem to flag an awful lot of things as threats though they aren't. Like built in windows processes get flagged for some reason and you have to go in and allow each process.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Being that Cylance is available for both mac and pc we are able to successfully protect all of the computing devices that we deploy.

"Controversial but appears to work well"

What do you like best?

Invisible to the end-user, lightweight and does not appear to reduce OS or application performance. Threat protection is a constant problem in a large organization, and Cylance appears to provide reliable coverage to thousands of end-users.

What do you dislike?

Seems to have an aggressive sales and marketing program that may overstate the product's benefit. No real mechanism to flag false positives or deal with issues through the end user's console, some kind of partnership with the customer's internal sys admin team would be good, such that you can report a problem and get help from either your internal sys-admin and/or the cylance support team as the problem warrants.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Machine learning based systems and tools are the future of software. Definitely consider an AI-based solution like Cylance.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Employee PC malware protection.

"Best endpoint security option since sliced bread"

What do you like best?

I like that I have thrown anything and everything at Cylance and it detects it all. Zero day bugs, file less attacks, rogue code and cross scripting. It is very easy to use and even easier to white-list and blacklist potential or even well known threats.

System requirements for the software is around 100 MB of ram and less than 5% CPU when running a scan. It also does not need to be rebooted after each update and only needs to be updated every 3-6 months because of the algorithm used and the machine learning.

The cost is a little more than most AV's out on the market now, but if you factor in even rebuilding 2 machines a year. That covers the cost difference and saves you hours of time.

What do you dislike?

I do not have any dislikes currently. We have been virus free for 3 years and I am sleeping better at night, what's there to dislike?

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is worth the time to give it a try. This is the least you can do for yourself and your sanity.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are solving issues with the time spent remediating viruses or even having to go to the users desks to see what they have installed or downloaded.

Cylance has two modes, audit and prevent. You can get as granular as processes in ram or just allow Cylance to stop what it thinks or knows is bad and white-list or blacklist after.

What do you dislike?

Not the top for new ransomware, the 0day.

"Cylance - highly recommended!"

What do you like best?

There is too much to list. This product is what all products should do in their space. If you have problems with virus infections, then this is your product to fix that issue. You will save more than enough from labor costs of rebuilding PCs to pay for the slightly higher price. This product also helps in airgapped networks when you have computers that cannot reach the Internet due to security restrictions.

What do you dislike?

I have nothing here, we replaced Symantec endpoint protection and had many infections. This product completely stopped the infections from happening.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Why wait. You are just costing your company money!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

No downtime from virus infections, malware, ransom-ware, etc.

"Cylance Easy to use"

What do you like best?

From the start, all you do is download, install, and enter in a code. At that point you are protected. This is very easy to install and view in the admin portal.

What do you dislike?

We might have reached our capacity, but we keep getting users that need to re-enter the code. Will be contacting Cylance to get this resolved.

"Great product for businesses needing to upgrade traditional Anti virus programs"

What do you like best?

I like that it seems to work against malware hitting my machine.

Its less resource intensive than Symantec, Sophos and Trend Micro

What do you dislike?

There is no easy way to delete quarantine items.

So you have an item you ban, I'd expect to be able to delete it just in case Cylance happens to glitch the malware is gone.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is not a consumer product is meant for businesses, Users who have personal System used for work should not use this as it tends to ban some of your 'games' and other apps.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Cylance: next Generation Endpoint Protection"

What do you like best?

As a young company, Cylance is very eager to please and this translates very well when working with a company for the first time. The technology is amazing and truly has to be seen to be really appreciated.

What do you dislike?

There are a few suggestions that we have made regarding reporting capabilities and basic interface management, which at this time is rather limited.

Recommendations to others considering the product

According to sales and engineering, there are several big changes coming in the next few months so it may be worth keeping an eye on platform improvements.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Cylance allows our business to rise up and meet the changing threat landscape where traditional security platforms cannot tread.
