Cylance Unveils AI-Powered Cloud Security Solution for AWS

Irvine, California-based Cylance has announced support for Amazon Web Services (AWS) with its CylancePROTECT for the cloud solution. This cloud security solution would secure cloud workloads in public, private, and hybrid cloud computing environments.

Cylance develops “innovative” artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities to detect and prevent malware from executing. The company’s CylancePROTECT solution now supports AWS Linux to protect application instances running on cloud services infrastructure from cyber threats. Its AI techniques would further extend to the Cylance AI-powered endpoint detection and response (EDR) solution CylanceOPTICS to provide insight and threat hunting capabilities against those threats.

“We are excited to make our AI-driven, prevention-first security solutions available to cloud computing environments,” said Stuart McClure, founder and chief executive officer (CEO) at Cylance. “By approaching security with sophisticated machine learning techniques and offering scalable threat detection, response, root cause analysis, and threat hunting, Cylance helps prevent data breaches that impact the security of an organization’s data in the cloud.”

Cylance would simplify cloud security by utilizing an agent with a small footprint and with no configuration or signature-update needs.

“Endpoint security has evolved from signature-based malware scanning, detecting, and blocking to more advanced capabilities,” said Matthew Ball, principal analyst at Canalys. “AI on the endpoint is a game-changer for cybersecurity providers by enabling customers to implement hybrid-IT strategies that utilize both cloud and on-premises resources, while protecting the most vulnerable points in their extended networks. Without AI, securing customer data will become even more challenging as IT complexity increases.”
