Cylance Launches an AI-Powered Antivirus Software

A technological revolution appears to be inevitable, as far as the harnessing AI’s power is concerned. Each day a new technological innovation or achievement is hitting the headlines all thanks to this remarkable technology.

Recently, Cylance Inc., which is the foremost provider of AI-powered, prevention-first security products, unveiled its AI-driven antivirus software that is developed mainly for consumers, Cylance Smart Antivirus.

Through extending CylancePROTECT ’s enterprise-quality artificial intelligence(AI) into homes, Cylance offers Internet users next-generation security software that proactively forecasts and keeps new threats at bay.

Over 350,000 new pieces of malware are developed on a daily basis, which makes it difficult for traditional consumer antivirus software to keep up with the current security status.

Even so, available solutions depend on reactive technologies that not only slow down systems but also bombard consumers with pop-up notifications and require some type of breach to start detecting malware. Nevertheless, the heightened growth of malicious code, particularly zero-day ransomware and threats call for more thoughtful and innovative solutions to effectively and adequately safeguard end-users.

Cylance Smart Antivirus offers predictive security to identify and prevent threats before they get an opportunity to run without disrupting the user or compromising device performance. By doing so, the AI-powered antivirus aids in keeping consumers ahead of such bad actors.

Christopher Bray, Cylance Consumer’s senior VP, said that consumers deserve to get security software that is easy-to-use, effective and fast. He added that the consumer antivirus market is overdue for a revolutionary solution created on robust technology, which allows consumers to take control of their security environment.

Thanks to Cylance Smart Antivirus, routine Internet users now have the choice to buy next-generation software created on artificial intelligence. Most individuals have experience with legacy products that are equally good as their last upgrade. Hence, these tools need extensive manual interactions like scans, reboots, installations and download.

Cylance Smart Antivirus offers an easy set-it and forget-it security experience that delivers ease of use and true peace of mind. Some of the key features of the AI-powered antivirus include the following:

  • Simple Pricing: Cylance Smart Antivirus provides transparent and fair pricing. In fact, Cylance discounts all the subsequent years of using the antivirus in a bid to reward and encourage long-term security hygiene.
  • Predictive Threat Prevention: Thanks to its AI-powered approach, the antivirus is developed to prevent malicious threats such as malicious malware variants proactively.
  • Visibility: Cylance Smart Antivirus gives the technical specialist in any family the full control and awareness of the security status of all the devices irrespective of device location. On the other hand, a simple to use web dashboard allows users to configure alerts in case an attack or threat has been prevented, view the lists of malicious files blocked on every device and oversee the status of protected devices.
  • Negligible Impact on Performance: It operates silently and constantly without visible degradation of device performance. This attribute diminishes the constant scan requests, pop-ups and bloatware elements that portray available antivirus solutions.
  • Effortless User-Experience: The antivirus is easy-to-set-up and manage. It automatically upgrades in the background in a bid to deliver a set-it-and-forget-it experience.
