IRVINE, Calif., July 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Cylance®, the company that is revolutionizing cybersecurity through the use of artificial intelligence to proactively prevent advanced persistent threats and malware, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Cylance to its 2016 list of Emerging Vendors. This annual list recognizes recently founded, up-and-coming technology suppliers who are shaping the future of the IT channel through unique technological innovations. In addition to celebrating these standout companies, the Emerging Vendors list also serves as a valuable resource for solution providers looking to expand their portfolios with cutting-edge technology.
"We're very pleased to be named to the CRN Emerging Vendors list and see the recognition as further affirmation of our growth and vision as a company," said Cylance CEO Stuart McClure. "We started Cylance with the mission to protect everyone in the world with this ground-breaking technology. For the past four years we've worked to do that through the application of machine learning to endpoint security, and this recognition is another signpost motivating us to keep breaking new ground."
Cylance was selected as a CRN Emerging Vendor for its forward-looking vision. Cylance, through its innovative offering CylancePROTECT®, redefines what antivirus can and should do by using artificial intelligence to detect and prevent malware from executing on endpoints in real time. It does this through using machine learning to identify malware, rather than reactive signatures and sandboxes.
"The select group of companies on our Emerging Vendors list have already made a name for themselves in their short time in the IT community, introducing leading-edge technologies with the potential to transform their segments of the IT market," said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. "These tech suppliers are quickly making their mark on the industry and are the ones solution providers should watch in 2016."
The Emerging Vendors list will be featured in the August 2016 issue of CRN and online at www.crn.com/emergingvendors.
