BOULDER, Colo., Aug. 29, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Managed Methods Inc., the leader in API-based cloud application security solutions, today announced a product partnership with Cylance, the global provider of AI-driven, prevention-first security solutions. The partnership will enhance Managed Methods' Cloud Access Monitor CASB solution with the additional benefit of Cylance's AI-driven threat detection to proactively prevent advanced persistent threats and malware in cloud applications.
The use of cloud applications, including Google G Suite and Microsoft Office 365, has become nearly ubiquitous in organizations of all sizes and as a result, threats from malware and phishing attacks are increasing in scale and complexity. Cylance's AI-based threat detection adds enhanced protection against advanced threats often missed by traditional anti-virus technology. By leveraging the new integrated Managed Methods and Cylance solution, organizations can better protect their cloud applications and gain greater visibility and control.
"Advanced threats and malware are continually evolving to be much more difficult to detect," said Charlie Sander, CEO of Managed Methods. "With Cylance's powerful AI-based malware detection combined with Managed Methods' cloud-native CASB, we can offer customers the ability to not just detect but to prevent malware penetration of customer data, cloud assets and their business."
"We are excited that Managed Methods has selected Cylance to provide their customers with our AI-based prevention technology," said Ryan Permeth, founder and chief scientist at Cylance.
