Overall Satisfaction with CylancePROTECT

We use CylancePROTECT on 2,500 endpoints as a replacement for traditional anti-virus. This product proficiently addresses the limitations of traditional signature-based AV. We implemented this before WannaCry hit and proud to say it has been doing a sterling job for over 2 years now.
  • Reduces management stress due to higher levels of security assurance.
  • Reduces administrative time spent on console review and remediation.
  • Low resource utilisation, CPU, Ram, Disk.
  • Would like to see more granular control of USB.
  • More descriptive intel/info for alerts, eg: reasons why behind the algorithm.
  • It is more expensive than the likes of traditional AV or Windows ATP, BUT well worth the additional investment.
  • It's saved us a ton of remediation time.
  • Provides a high level of assurance.
  • The efficacy is far superior compared to traditional anti-virus software.

I work with hundreds of complex suppliers in healthcare and tech, and this company is more than just an extension of our business.
I have amazing relationships with several members of Cylance's team, and they are in a league of their own from a service perspective. I've even called account managers personally over weekends to obtain intel, feedback, etc. They deliver every time.
I have compared CylancePROTECT against several other traditional AV's in a lab environment with some serious new malware and ransomware. Cylance was my clear choice and remain proud of that decision, after 2.5 years. I managed to get 4 out of 4 ransomware infections past in my traditional test versus 0 out of 4 for CylancePROTECT.
It's an awesome product which has now evolved into a full-blown EDR or MDR Solution if you choose CylanceGUARD. We have a simple checkbox ticked that alerts us if the local endpoint's windows hosts file is modified. This is pretty cool!
