Cylance Inc. Announces General Availability of CylanceOPTICS

Cylance Inc. announced the general availability of CylanceOPTICS, an AI-driven endpoint detection and response (EDR) product that augments the prevention capabilities of CylancePROTECT. Delivered on the Cylance AI Platform, CylanceOPTICS simplifies key aspects of threat hunting and attack analysis without requiring cloud connectivity. The Cylance AI Platform serves as a data-science engine that generates specialized machine-learning models to address today’s incident response and investigative needs. When combined with the company’s product, CylancePROTECT®, CylanceOPTICS enables a more effective, simplified and high-performance endpoint security approach that helps organizations protect sensitive data, reduce risk of widespread compromises and improve their overall security posture. All security teams can benefit from the efficiency created by the Cylance AI Platform, which significantly reduces the volume of threats requiring investigation as well as the time required to complete those investigations. Key capabilities of CylanceOPTICS include: Simple Root-cause Analysis - Security professionals can dissect any CylancePROTECT detected and blocked attack, or any other file of interest, to determine the source of the threat. With this information they can work to close gaps in their security framework, eliminating vulnerabilities and reducing their attack surface. Endpoint Visibility and AI-assisted Threat Hunting - Provides instant access to the forensically relevant data collected from endpoints with InstaQuery (IQ), the dynamic endpoint data interrogation and visualization layer. Users can conduct on-demand enterprise wide threat hunts, searching for files, executables and other indicators of compromise. IQ allows analysts to quickly determine whether any endpoint is at risk, minimizing available attack and dwell time, speeding incident response. Integrated Incident Response - Using built-in response capabilities, analysts can take decisive response actions across the enterprise immediately, stopping attackers in their tracks, reducing the risk of a widespread compromise. Works Independently of the Cloud -The lightweight endpoint agent required for both CylancePROTECT and CylanceOPTICS works independently of the cloud and is as effective for endpoints on air-gapped networks as for connected ones. CylanceOPTICS uses local data for search and collection of forensically relevant data, eliminating concerns associated with continuously streaming data to the cloud.
