Overall Satisfaction with CylancePROTECT

Since the Ransomeware scares back in 2016, many companies have been on the edge in trying to figure out what the best solution is to mitigate and prevent any future attacks regarding Ransomware. Signature-based solutions are a thing of the past, and now companies are turning towards AI and math models to prevent 0-Day attacks. Cylance has you covered in all of these areas! Ever since we purchased the product over three years ago, we have yet to have one computer infected with any type of virus, Ransomware, Malware, etc. That point alone is all I need!
  • Cylance uses AI Math-Model algorithms/machine-learning solutions, compared to other solutions which use signature-based solutions.
  • The Cylance client is very light-weight and is not as resource hungry.
  • The blocking capability is completely customizable through policies. Macro blocking, script blocking, and device blocking (USB, CDROM, iPhone, Android, etc.) can all be customized per organization needs.
  • Management interface is easy to use. The dashboard gives administrators a quick glance at threat events, threat protection, and device protection. Reports give you quick glances at infections, stale versions, and computers that have been offline for a period of time. Updates are easy to roll out in a tiered fashion to properly test.
  • Customer support is great! You can open up a ticket within the management portal and get help within a few hours. Most of the support is over email unless it is complicated, then they will do a remote session.
  • Quicker Mac Support and version update when the latest OS for Mac is released
  • Mac support for new features that are released at a faster pace.
  • Considering the public footprint our organization has, the return of investment is not able to be measured in dollar amounts. You cannot put a price tag on reputation.
Today, security should be at the top level of importance in any organization. The damage that a company can receive from a data leak, breach, etc. can be very costly and perhaps so devastating that they may have to shut down. With products like CylancePROTECT in place, companies will be able to sleep better at night knowing that their endpoints are secure and will not be subject to the Ransomware kidnappings!
