IRVINE, Calif., March 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Cylance, the company that is revolutionizing cybersecurity through the use of artificial intelligence to proactively prevent advanced persistent threats and malware, today announced that it has been recognized in the 2016 Security 100 list by CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company. This project recognizes the coolest security vendors in each of five categories: Endpoint Security; Identity and Access Management and Data Protection; Network Security; SIEM and Threat Detection; and Web and Application Security.
The companies in CRN's Security 100 have demonstrated creativity and innovation in product development, as well as a strong commitment to delivering those offerings through a vibrant channel of solution providers.

The list aids prospective channel partners in identifying the vendors that can best help them improve or expand their security offerings.
CRN recognized Cylance for its continued attention from investors, as well as its groundbreaking math- and artificial intelligence-based approach to preventing cyber attacks. The company's OEM agreement with Dell Security and strong, productive relationships with channel partners were significant contributors to its selection for this honor.
"We're very pleased to be recognized for our contributions to the field of security technology," said Stuart McClure, president and CEO of Cylance. "It's a strong validation of the Cylance artificial intelligence approach to cyber attack prevention, which has been proven to be not just cool, but incredibly effective.

"The frequency and complexity of IT security threats have vastly increased in recent years, requiring rapid innovation and an incisive, forward-thinking defense strategy. The importance of having expertly secured networks, software, hardware, applications and databases cannot be overstated.
