Intelligent intrusion detection and response for small and medium enterprise clients at a reasonable cost

What is our primary use case?

The primary use would mainly be for intelligent intrusion detection and response. Our biggest customers are two pharmacies and a bank, so it would be applied in the financial and healthcare industries.

Pros and Cons

  • "Cylance is not a signature-based protection solution and instead works proactively using AI and ML models to patrol for malicious behavior."
  • "Too many false positives are reported."

What other advice do I have?

Advice that I would give to anyone considering switching to this solution is you should go for it if you have the money set aside to switch. But also I would spend additional for professional services to handle your migration. On a scale of one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate the product as eight-and-a-half. That is because of all that it does, the comparison between the other products, and the fact that it is a vigilant AI / ML tool that proactively guards your system.

Good ability to respond to zero-day and unknown threats, but automating the threat response needs improvement

What is our primary use case?

We are an IT company and this is one of the solutions that we implement for our customers. I am a pre-sales solution architect in charge of cybersecurity.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is the ability to respond to zero-day and unknown threats."
  • "Our customers would like to see more automation with respect to how threats are handled once they have been detected."

What other advice do I have?

I have not received much feedback but Cylance seems to be able to meet our customers' requirements for the time being. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

Good feedback overall during our evaluation period

Pros and Cons

  • "It is a bit early in our evaluation process to give proper feedback, although so far, the overall feedback is good."
  • "The detection component is something that they have to work on."

What other advice do I have?

In this domain, Cylance is the newcomer. Symantec and Palo Alto Traps have been in operation for quite some time. It is a bit early in our evaluation process to give proper feedback, although so far, the overall feedback is good. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
