Pros: In the three years we've been protecting our endpoints with CylancePROTECT, we have had ZERO incidents across ~250 endpoints. I have tested the Cylance client against true zero day attacks, not recognized on VirusTotal, shared with me by an MSP friend. He has had many clients compromised by ransomware, several more than once, with nuke/pave/restore for the entire organization being the typical response. When I throw attacks against old-build agents, and those attacks are obliterated, it helps me sleep better at night. I don't see these attacks in my environment, hence the testing. The endpoint is the focus of the last line of defense, so PROTECT is critical in my security posture.

Cons: In comparison to traditional signature-based (useless) AV, CylancePROTECT and CylanceOPTICS seems expensive. That's why my MSP pal doesn't have his SMB clients on this product, they can't comprehend the value proposition of something so different to what they're familiar with. I guess that's why the marketing initiatives can seem a little over the top, it's hard to get the idea across when some hater says "doesn't detect EICAR!"

Overall: I have a significant number of users out in the field with limited or no edge protection, so a cloud based endpoint solution is an obvious first step. With a traditional AV client that includes web filtering, which we also have, I would consider those endpoints EXTREMELY vulnerable. Even with excellent email filtering, which we also have, there are just too many things that can go horribly wrong. With three years experience and NO compromised endpoints, I can focus on other security layers instead of faffing around fixing endpoints.

Primal application to detect and prevent attacks in your organization.

Pros: * It is an excellent application because it is based on an artificial intelligence system, which makes it a predictive, fast and efficient unit when detecting an intrusion before reaching its final point.

* Warns, evaluates and saves an exact description of the point of origin, expanding the ability to isolate the affected or involved teams during the attack.

* Its compact and user-friendly system can be integrated with third-party applications for the administration or maintenance of network units.

* It offers practicality, stability and fidelity by keeping tasks in constant execution and pre-programmed, which helps the user to increase their efficiency in time and evaluation of reports to maintain an accurate control in the company and to be able to handle better security routines.

* It is possible to use this versatile tool in different devices separately for the protection of memory, control of scripts, control applications and review of sites with possible threats.

* The artificial intelligence system for detection is changing the way attacks are predicted.

Overall: I do not have negative aspects, since it is a very well elaborated software, with guarantees of feasibility and adaptation in each company.

Pros: CylanceProtect performs its work so silently you almost forget it is there. I have been using it for a year and have only got two warnings so far: one for an old file from a temp folder that had not been picked up by the previous antivirus, and a false positive (CCleaner.exe, oddly).

CylanceProtect features a "proactive defense" model, as opposed to the reactive one of other solutions, that pretty much "clean up the mess" once the damage is done.

With a proactive model, when it is working as intended, you just don't notice anything as threats are eliminated before they hit you. A welcome change of method after having used so many bloated, hit-or-miss antivirus solutions before.

So, in a nutshell, main pros: ease-of-use and efficacy.

Cons: Not much to dislike, except for the fact that it detected CCleaner as a threat by mistake. Guess it has to do with the way CCleaner works, with its far-reaching system tools. Perhaps Cylance does not want to share space with another system protection tool? Let's pretend it was just a false positive and nothing else.

Also, being an endpoint solution, some users might be put off by the way it installs over your corporate network. But I am sure that would be a small demographic anyway.

Overall: A well protected workstation! No viruses, trojans, exploits, or other threats in the network I use at work.

Pros: The fact that it just works. I have evaluated several other products and ran into all sorts of issues. For the price, simplicity and performance of Cylance, I can't say enough good about this product. Cylance has a team of dedicated and knowledgeable employees who truly care about securing your network. If you are hesitant about giving them a try or you feel like your current vendor is adequate, please give Cylance a call and give them a chance. You will not be disappointed.

Cons: This isn't a complaint but a feature I would love to see implemented. I wish there was the ability to force agent updates when new agents are released. It's not a huge deal since the agents update on their own in a timely manner, but having the ability to do so would be beneficial. That said, I have only run into one situation where I truly wish this feature existed.

Overall: From the evaluation phase to actually rolling it out I have been extremely happy with our decision to choose Cylance. I rated everything 5 stars because I truly feel like they have earned it. Thank you Cylance for your dedication to securing our network of devices and people.

Small footprint anti-virus that works well against know threats and zero-day attacks as well.

Pros: Easy to install and manage from the cloud. Does not interfere with Internet connection like other antivirus program since they hook into the network. Is not overly bloated. Also, does not require constant updates in order to fight the latest viruses. Direct integration with SIEMs such as Splunk and Logrhythm.

Cons: Reported were recently revamped and a good degree of the filtering was removed. Reports are less userful. There is built in mechanism to deploy client software to all platforms. Silent install on Mac or Linux require writing a bash script in order to set enviroment variables for the installer instead of a packaged install. Would be nice if home product was included in the corporate license.

Overall: Ease of use. Easy to manage from anywhere due to the cloud management interface. Report clients do not need to be connected to a corporate LAN to get updated setting changes.

Pros: being based on AI, there is not much to configure, which makes the setup quite easy and fast. THe endpoint client can be installed in visible or invisible mode. before implementing the product we did run a comparison test against another product we are using, one traditional signature-based antivirus scanner. we all know that AI as an advantage against traditonal antivirus, but i wanted to see it action. the results were excellent! Cylance stoppes all malware as expected. the other client only did stop a high percentage of it, but a few were left running.

Another thing I like: the product will need an update from time to time, but not as often as a traditional AV.

Cons: some features could be improved, e.g. notifications when actions are taken. I have been informed that Cylance is working on it.

Overall: in times of ransomware and increasing security breaches, I have gained an additional bit of 'peace of mind' when it comes down to antivirus software and blocking zero-day attacks

Pros: Works incredibly well

minuscule resource consumption on end-points

no definition files

great administrator visibility

Cons: higher priced than some competitors

end-users can't initiate a scan

Overall: Of all the end-point protection products that I have used or tested over the years this is by far the best. True zero day protection which is far superior to any of the definition based end-point products. People can debate whether or not it is true AI, but, I slept fine during Crypto-Locker and WannaCry scares knowing that I wasn't dependent on someone getting infected with a variant, a security team to reverse engineering it, and hoping my end-points got the new definition files in time. Easy installs, minor resource consumption, great visibility to administrators via portal.

Pros: Cylance software utilizes AI to determine if the actions or behavior on a system are risky or suspect. It does an excellent job of preventing your host from getting zero day vulnerabilities. Deployment is easy and they provided a managed solution as well. Cylance is minimal in processing power and does not impact the overall operations of s system. The web GUI is helpful and provides information about a host including IP, MAC address, host name, OS type, and if it is currently online.

Cons: At current, it would be nice if there was a Home Use Program. Software deployment from the server would be nice.

Overall: Say goodbye to having to keep up-to-date with virus definitions. Have used this software on servers with no fill effects. Works great on workstations as well.Does a great job of catching malware and zero day exploits.

Pros: Cylance is simple to use and does a fantastic job of protecting our endpoints! The behavior-based engine is much more accurate and responsive than traditional signature-based antivirus. By taking a look at how an application acts, it can stop it from running without the need of a diffinition. The interface is easy to see what's going on on your endpoints. As well as make changes such as whitelisting applications or globally blocking a file.

Cons: WHen you first set it up in your environment you will need to whitelist many of your requred applications as they can get blocked at first run.

Overall: Cylance has done a much better job of protecting our endpoints than our previous AV. We didn't know how much better it was until we realized just how much malware was slipping through our previous AV. It also doesn't stress our endpoints like our previous AV did when it would run scans and make some of our endpoints become sluggish until the scan was done. Very efficient, very effective antivirus!

Pros: Goodbye signatures, hello AI. We are no longer constantly downloading the latest A/V signatures that are merely responding to yesterday's threats. CylancePROTECT uses AI (Artificial Intelligence) to scan for malicious traits that are common to all malware. This is a game-changer. They claim a 99.5% success rate, and after a year of using their product we have no reason to doubt them. Leaving our previous A/V software was a bit of a risk, but we're so glad we took the plunge!

Cons: There are quite a few initial false positives, and it can take some time to develop your whitelists & tweak your configurations. But once that's done, administration is quite simple.

Overall: The Cylance team is great to work with, very helpful walking you through every step of implementation. We would highly recommend this company, and this product.

Pros: Cylance is very effective to block any type of virus and spam. Cylance is ideal to keep the devices free of threats. It has a very fast and simple installation. We had no delay at the time of installing CylancePROTECT. In general, Cylance is a very fast, safe and effective product that works in multiple operating systems.

Cons: Some users report problems with support. They have problems because it is necessary for the support to have more information (more technical notes are missing).

Overall: We manage to eliminate and maintain our devices free of all types of threats and at a considerably low cost. Cylance works perfectly to block and eliminate viruses and spam. It is very fast and scalable.

Pros: Cylance is very, very thorough in regards to what kinds of applications are allowed to exist and execute on your endpoints. Not only does it ensure files are secure, it also monitors processes to make sure they don't run rogue and start executing dangerous code that would cause problems, such as a Stack Pivot.

Cons: It can sometimes be a bit overzealous, quarantining legitimate tools and files that seem suspicious just because it's not in their database or otherwise "PUP"

Overall: Cylance ensures that each endpoint is fully protected and allows easy whitelisting for anything it gets too grabby with.

Cons: There isnt anything I dislike about it this product

Overall: Cylance bridges the gap that other antivirus fail to. No more on demand scanning and periodic scanning of your PC. Cylance runs in the background like your PCs own personal security team. It is always scanning to make sure your completely protected at all times.

Once you get the management side of it laid out, it is really easy to work with and monitor. It is also very responsive to the cloud management changes.

Cons: It can be cumbersome to get everything configured and marked as OK/Safe depending on what the item is. Scripts are difficult to allow on a global bases and require more administration effort than they should.

Pros: Cylance starts working immediately. Given multiple infected computers and a cylance install we were able to retrieve necessary files and configurations before reimaging machines.

Cons: Sometimes it's too good at blocking. The program can block necessary executables. While these can be whitelisted, it really interrupts the workflow to stop and have to update the whitelist and then push it to all devices. A more comprehensive planning session before install might help.

Overall: Cylance is protecting all the end devices and servers.

Pros: The idea that its looking at files in new ways and checks executions wiith AI is definitely the way forward.

Cons: The Webinterface is the only way to allow, block or check Software and quarantined files.

There is no way to change the language, its based on your browser setting and features ONLY work in english.

Unfortunately this software is a massive cpu hog.

Pros: Cylane is quite silent, it can be demanding for some moments on memory, but most of the time you won't notice it's there, which as a developer is something I highly like.

Cons: If you have it, it's probably due to your company requiring a security software.

Pros: Easily cloud managed, no updates required.

Cons: Its a little pricy, but worth it.

Overall: We have been very happy with this product, it acts as a secondary to Symantec AV. It requires no internet connection, no updates, and is AI, not based on known signatures. You are at risk for 0-day exploits without this product.

Pros: Great machine learning capabilities that protect from some threats. This solution does a great job at using mathematic algorithms to protect.

Cons: The solution is limited in terms of the protection provided. They are building the solution to include items such as application whitelisting but it still needs work.

We do not have to worry about ransomware with this product anymore.

Pros: Management is web based and easy to control\waive for users.

Updates are easy to push with no issues reported over the last year.

Cons: Cylance is more $$ but worth it for the protection, it provides and ease of use.

They are coming out with a home version but not fully there. It would be nice to have this offered for home users.

Pros: The best part is it works independent of signatures! It is capable of detecting and quarantining malware's in open as well as isolate networks without continues signature updates. Its compatible with Windows and Mac OS.

Cons: At the time I was doing vulnerability scan during which I was trying to gain the root access of particular host, the Cylance threat prevention which was running on that host, failed to detect the root access and did not block the scan which is not good as other endpoint protections like Symantec could have been be able to do.

Overall: This endpoint protection might help to prevent a zero day attack because of its machine learning approach and ability of artificial intelligence which is a big thing as no other threat protection product can do that
