My advice to someone considering this solution is that it's a popular product and you should really go for it. Cylance is a new company with a very innovative concept. I really like its detection, its scans, and the machine learning. I would recommend this solution. I'd rate Cylance a nine out of ten.

I don't think too much about the features when it comes to an antivirus solution, such as this. When you try to combine too much into one product, you end up affecting the product as a whole. If you're a home user then it's great because you only pay once a year and it does everything including the antivirus, firewall, VPN, internet security, and more. However, when you're in an SMB or an SME installation, all of those things are decentralized. My advice for anybody who is considering this solution is to switch if you have the money put aside. I would suggest using Professional Services to assist with the migration. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Cylance is a product that I recommend trying. It is different from the traditional products that are out there like Symantec, McAfee, and Sophos. This technology is very good, very stable, and we have great trust in it and what it delivers. They also do health checks from time to time and they help, which is useful. This solution works well but there is always room for improvement. Nothing is perfect. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

You can obviously get in touch with a partner (Grove Group) like us, and we can arrange a POC for your business. While we're dealing with the POC, it will showcase the product and how valuable the product is for your business. Plus, it will actually show what defective files it's picking up in real-time. You can do a side by side comparison while you're running Cylance with your existing endpoint protection to see the difference in protection. You can see exactly what Cylance does pick up on both the endpoint device and the admin console. I also love the fact that the en-point software is not using a lot of resources on the client. I would say you should take the opportunity and run a POC and evaluate the software and you'll notice with the web interface, the admin dashboard on the website, how easy it is to work with Cylance and protect your endpoints. You don't need any on-prem servers to run the endpoints software. Go and experience Cylance and see how AI and Machine Learning is the future to protect your Business. I would rate the solution as a 10 out of 10.

You just have to download it from the Cylance website, so it's pretty easy. You have to be careful because if you have more firewalls you have to buy a separate product and the question is: How does it work with the firewall from a different vendor? There should also be backup capability included. I do, however, recommend the solution. I would rate this solution eight out of ten.

The lack of details for the user is partly because of the way they detect. it is done passively, rather than dynamically, so they don't have a lot of information about the things that they already caught. The suitability of this solution for any particular person will depend on their expectations. I would not rate this solution in the top five for things like presenting information, or ease of use. For standard protection they are ok, but if you have advanced demands, or a SOC, then I don't think that Cylance can compete with Carbon Black, CrowdStrike, or SentinelOne. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

We decided to switch to a different platform because we got the EDR and the scripting solution tool in one box. It was an end-point solution, so a scripting solution, plus cybersecurity. For basic security, I would recommend Cylance. For advanced security, I wouldn't. I would give the solution a rating of 6 out of 10.

It works well and covers a good number of the bases you need covered for general cybersecurity and vulnerability management. I would rate it a nine out of ten for great usage and really good customer service if anything goes wrong.
