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: CylancePROTECT is cloud managed and eases the administration tasks when having hundreds or thousands of assets to configure/check.

Cons: There is nothing remarkable to say here at this moment. Maybe the notifications might be improved when something happens and needs your attention.

Replaced dated security with Cylance and glad we did.

Pros: Cylance is easy to install and consumes only a small amount of resources. There is no need to monitor the definition updates and other items you need to with traditional AV. 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.

Overall: We were able to displace TrendMicro Deep Security as we were having trouble with it. We have a reduced amount of administration that is required with this product and all is good.

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: Prevention is utilized rather than reaction (which is what the AntiVirus applications are doing). This a welcome alternative.

Cons: Not a simple way to uses your own policy to become the default policy for new devices added to the network.

Overall: We plan to leave traditional AV software behind and proactively prevent ransomware, spyware, etc.

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: The client app is simple and unobtrusive. The Admin GUI is a breeze to navigate through and get reports along with quarantining anything new.

Cons: You can't quarantine the actual device if it gets hit by a nasty; you need to rely on your network infrastructure hw and/or sw to block the device/user.

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.

Very good product. Easy to use. Tad expensive but worth it.

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: 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: It will find 0 day threats and is cloud based, doesn't have to have to be connected to the internet.

Cons: Have not found a good way to distribute to non-domain users, other than that there are not any cons.

Cylance offers a bold new way to think about AV and malware protection. Amazing

Pros: I like that their is no need for regular connected updates of the software, av files or other data files. Great approach to protection.

Cons: It is hard to grasp that the Cylance approach is as effective as the traditional approach. Also, I have not seen the pricing model

Overall: Great approach and concept. No need to constant connection is great

Pros: We have not had a single virus since we deployed this. That's the first time in over a decade I've been able to say that

Cons: Nothing I can think of. They do like to have VARs sell it, but Insight sells it now. Year two I am trying to switch over to my primary vendor.

Overall: Stopped viruses cold

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.
