Malware like WannaCry and Petya that terrorized the world last year are being released at a rate of over a million per day.
Conventional security software alone is insufficient to prevent
such threats and coping with such unknown threats has become a pressing issue for companies to deal with.
Is your company safe?
Cylance Inc. is the first cyber security company to leverage on the artificial intelligence algorithm.
Their security software boasts a high detection rate of 99.7% against hacker attacks.
Established in July 2012, Cylance Inc. received funding of $100 million from investors like Draper Nexus and Khosla Ventures and is currently one of the companies that is attracting huge attention in the cyber security industry.
Japanese security software maker, MOTEX Inc., announced on 11th May 2016 that they would be entering an OEM Partner Agreement with Cylance Inc. By integrating the technology of CylancePROTECT into LanScope Cat, the resulting product “Protect Cat Powered by Cylance” is able to offer users advanced threat prevention solutions. Protect Cat is able to prevent unknown cyber attacks and can allow users to be aware of which application or programme on their endpoints is potentially harmful, providing unprecedented visibility.
LanScope Cat, with the addition of Protect Cat which utilizes Cylance Inc.’s artificial intelligence technology, is able to solve both external and internal security problems in the company.
Utilizes Artificial Intelligence and Tracks Entry Point of Threats!
Next Generation Malware Solution – Protect Cat
「LanScope Cat」is a next generation anti-virus product that is equipped with Cylance’s artificial intelligence technology. Not only is it able to detect 99.7%* of both known and unknown malware, it is also able to track the point of entry of the threat. Protect Cat can prevent the reoccurrence of such a threat by taking measures against the user’s operations.
* Based on an evaluation conducted in January 2016 by a thirdparty organization "AV-TEST", a Germany-based company that conducts performance and comparison verification of security products.
The Unbelievable Tour was held across America in 75 cities. Each time, a comparison of the detection rates of different anti-virus software, including Cylance, was conducted using 200 of the latest malware as well as their subspecies that were obtained within 24 hours.
Agent updates are only required to be performed twice a year as signature and behaviour detection are not carried out. Unlike conventional anti-virus software and behavior detection, Protect Cat is able to detect threats without the need to run programmes in a sandbox.
Cloud-based AI will learn from 1 billion files and extract up to 7 million features from each file. The AI will create a mathematical model to determine whether the file is malware or safe before introducing it to the endpoint.

The remaining security issue is “Man”.
Companies need to take measures against user operations to ensure that incidents caused by misoperations do not occur again.
