SYDNEY, Australia – 22 June 2018 – Cylance Inc., the company that revolutionised endpoint security by delivering AI-powered threat prevention, today announced the availability of CylanceHYBRID™ and CylanceON-PREM™, two new deployment and management options for CylancePROTECT®. Cylance’s flagship endpoint security product now serves any environment: public cloud, private cloud and air-gapped networks.
Nearly two-thirds of enterprise computing still occurs in on-premises data centers, and 90 percent of organisations will adopt hybrid strategies by 2020. Organisations with closed networks, private clouds or limited connectivity face the problem of protecting against both outside and inside threats without exposing their infrastructure to outside connections. In fact, over half of technology leaders cite security as the greatest challenge to both private and hybrid clouds. CylanceHYBRID and CylanceON-PREM close this gap by bringing AI-driven predictive threat analysis to restricted or completely isolated infrastructures.
“Organisations with strict privacy requirements, such as federal government agencies and EU-based companies, have been targets of a growing barrage of cyberattacks in the past few years,” said Eric Cornelius, Chief Product Officer at Cylance, who previously served as the Deputy Director and Chief Technical Analyst for the Industrial Control Systems Security Program at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. “Traditional tools have proven to be cost prohibitive and ineffective at preventing unknown attacks – the most damaging type of threat. CylanceHYBRID and CylanceON-PREM allow every organisation to benefit from our AI-based endpoint security capabilities, regardless of geography, connectivity level and network architecture.”
CylanceHYBRID serves companies operating on restricted networks or with low-bandwidth internet. With CylanceHYBRID, all CylancePROTECT communications are routed through a single connection and threat detection models are stored locally, reducing connectivity requirements and costs of maintaining a secure environment.
Intended for isolated or air-gapped networks, CylanceON-PREM ensures that organisations with no internet connection remain secure by deploying the Cylance Management Console and protective agents on the isolated infrastructure. This allows security administrators to update agents without compromising network privacy. CylancePROTECT’s predictive technology, when managed through CylanceON-PREM, also offers security against internal threats like infected USB devices, which air-gapping cannot prevent.
CylanceON-PREM and CylanceHYBRID are available to Cylance customers worldwide today. For more information or for a demo of the CylancePROTECT capabilities, please visit: https://www.cylance.com/en_us/products/our-products/enterprise-products/protect.html

Email fraud is nothing new, but online criminals have become ever more-effective at spoofing their identities to trick employees into sending them money. The Australian Centre for Cyber Security (ACSC) recorded losses of over $20M to business email compromise (BEC) attacks last year alone, up 230 percent over the previous year – and the full amount is certain to be much larger.

No matter how robust your security, or how diligent your employees, network credentials are a free pass for cybercriminals. This is mostly because employees are relied upon for their own password management. And with more than 4.8 billion sets of stolen credentials said to be available online, odds are that at least a few of your employees’ user IDs and passwords are just waiting to be used by unscrupulous outsiders. Are you ready to stop them?

Cyber resilience will be particularly important as Australian organisations face increased pressure to quickly detect, respond to, and manage the repercussions of breaches in the wake of 2018’s Notifiable Data Breaches (NDB) scheme.
