Malware Execution Control is the core protection technology of our flagship product, CylancePROTECT. This technology leverages artificial intelligence and machine learning to detect and prevent malware on Windows, Mac, and Linux based environments before it executes. This revolutionary approach provides effectiveness far beyond traditional signature-based approaches.
Security challenges are tough to solve and dynamic in nature. The threat you see today will likely morph into a threat that a traditional antivirus signature won’t recognize tomorrow. Recognizing that, Cylance® takes a formulaic data science approach to protection, harnessing the power of the cloud with the scalability and efficiency of artificial intelligence and machine learning. This eliminates the human-produced signature element in judging the rectitude of a file, and enables CylancePROTECT to predict with very high certainty if a file is safe to run.
When the computer reboots all of therunning processes and sub processes are analyzed by the AI machine learning algorithm. Any file unsafe file is prevented from executing and is automatically moved into a quarantine folder. The file properties are changed at the time of quarantining therefore this file will never run again.
CylancePROTECT includes an option to perform a Deep Malware Scan to locate the presence of malware on the computer. This scan can be run once or reoccur every 9 days from the time the last scan had completed.
