How Cylance PROTECTs You

CylancePROTECT detects and blocks malware before it can affect your computer. Cylance uses a mathematical approach to malware identification, using machine learning techniques instead of reactive signatures, trust-based systems or sandboxes. Cylance's approach renders new malware, viruses, bots, and future variants useless. CylancePROTECT analyzes potential file executions for malware in the Operating System (OS) and memory layers to prevent the delivery of malicious payloads.


Threat:   When a threat is downloaded to the system or something running in memory that attempts to execute an attack.
Threat Detection: How the CylancePROTECT Agent identifies threats.

    Analysis: How files are identified as malicious or safe. 

    Infinity Engine: The CylancePROTECT Mathematical Model in the cloud and is used to score files. 

    Local: The CylancePROTECT Mathematical Model included with the Agent. This allows analysis when the device is not connected to the Internet. 

    Action: What the Agent does when a file is identified as a threat.

    Global: Checks policy settings, including the Global Quarantine and Safe Lists.

    Local: Checks for files manually Quarantined or Waived.
