Cylance Selected as SINET 16 Innovator

Cylance, Inc., a global provider of disruptive cybersecurity products and services that reinvent the way organizations prevent advanced threats, today announced that it has been selected as a SINET 16 Innovator. Cylance will present its unique approach to advanced threat detection and prevention through use of complex mathematical models during the SINET Showcase 2013. The event will be held December 4-5, 2013, at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. The Security Innovation Network™ (SINET) is an organization focused on advancing Cybersecurity innovation through public-private collaboration.

The SINET Showcase program, supported by the Department of Homeland Security Science & Technology Directorate, received 115 application submissions from early stage and emerging technology companies, with the guideline that their revenues be under $15 million. These entries were carefully vetted in a two-stage process by the SINET Showcase Steering Committee, comprising 66 leaders from the government, industry, investment and academic communities.

“We are honored by SINET’s recognition of our truly revolutionary and innovative way to detect and prevent advanced threats,” said Stuart McClure, CEO of Cylance, Inc. “The security industry is often frozen by fear and handicapped by the notion that we need to see a threat before we can identify maliciousness. Cylance is healing that handicap by applying math and algorithmic science to solve the advanced threat problem at its core, through execution control. The lightweight and scalable nature of the technology allows execution decisions to be made in milliseconds, determining mathematically what is safe to run and what is a threat. With the power of math, we are empowering both the private and public sectors to protect themselves from the growing greylist problem of the unknown unknowns.”

Cylance is the first to apply existing principles of algorithmic science (used today in high frequency trading, insurance and pharmaceuticals) to the world of security.

The SINET Showcase, a public-private partnership initiative, was created to identify and share innovative and potentially disruptive cybersecurity technologies among the audience of buyers and influencers from the investment, research, commercial, civilian, defense and intelligence communities.

“The traditional corporate debate of ‘build versus buy’ is no longer a debate,” said Robert Rodriguez, SINET founder and chairman. “It’s a buy market being driven by a dynamic attack environment. As a result, the importance of accelerating innovation is imperative, not only for the entrepreneur, but also for a higher calling – the national security and economic interests of our country. We congratulate Cylance for helping shape, influence and impact the future of the cybersecurity domain.”
