CylancePROTECT Pros and Cons

CylancePROTECT Pros

The non-daily requirement to update signatures is the most valuable feature. From a functional point of view, it is pretty spot on. For instance, we compared an algorithm from five years ago to today's algorithm, and it was 98% accurate. It has the ability to detect and mitigate. In the industrial environment that we work in, there's what we call OT versus IT. You are IT Central, but this is OT. Generally, we don't have the same level of skillset as IT individuals or IT professionals have. This particular product doesn't require you to be a computer scientist to be able to understand its proprietary algorithm and to be able to deploy, use, and work within it. It integrates well with a robust SIEM or SOAR solution, and it plays nice with others. We use other detection solutions like CyberX or site provision with Cisco, and it plays nice. That's one of the things we really liked about it.

The most functional item that we use is the process to turn off the false flags that it causes.

Two or three years ago when the WannaCry virus struck, the people that were on Cylance were the ones that weren't affected.

You can manage all the threats and everything from a centralized dashboard.
It provides good insight into the programs, applications, or websites that may need attention.
It is extremely simple to manage and deploy.

The solution is extremely scalable. It's got the hybrid functionality, it's got the system functionality and cloud functionality as well.

A user can continue to add endpoints and the solution will continue to perform well.

In most cases, the solution's ability to detect in the MITRE framework, and its ability to be able to detect attacks in any one of seven or eight different areas of the life cycle of an attack is very useful.

CylancePROTECT Cons

It could have integration with industrial base HMIS or Human Machine Interfaces Solutions. This is the industrial environment where you have a control center for all the automation that's happening, whether it is oil, gas, or chemical manufacturing. They often have to set up a computer at the back and watch the other stuff to get alerts. In these autonomous or on-premises environments, they often don't have access to email readily. Integration with other industrial solutions, such as HMIS, will allow them to communicate and get an alert that something has been found. This way, they can react to it sooner than having somebody watch the screen and keep checking the screen. Rockwell has its own suite. Similarly, Honeywell has its own suite. There's also an independent HMI/historian solution provider out there called VTSCADA. We actually get asked if we can get it to show up on a screen, which is difficult. Getting those alerts to work within an industrial environment would be a huge plus.

While you are working, you are finding these things that were supposed to be waived have come back to being blocked. That's frustrating.

They could improve on the false positives, reporting and whitelisting features.

I would like to see them fix the alerting system so that the endpoint reporting is a bit more streamlined.

The product does not do a lot of reporting on what it is taking care of. Enhanced reporting would be a welcome improvement.

I would say one thing that they might need to bring in is protection for mobile devices.

The company that sells us the licenses sometimes doesn't know how to do certain things.

Having worked with SentinelOne, Cylance is good, however, it probably needs to add a feature similar to SentinelOne's rollback functionality. With this feature, if you get infected, with a click, you can go back to the pre-infection state. If Cylance could add this functionality to their offering as well, that would be ideal.

The product needs to continue to offer better alerts. In particular, around false positives. It needs to reduce them from happening.

It should provide more details about the events that they have detected.
