CylancePROTECT Valuable Features

Gordon Powell - PeerSpot reviewer
OT Cyber Security Principal Consultant at Jacobs Engineering Group Inc.

The non-daily requirement to update signatures is the most valuable feature. From a functional point of view, it is pretty spot on. For instance, we compared an algorithm from five years ago to today's algorithm, and it was 98% accurate. It has the ability to detect and mitigate.

In the industrial environment that we work in, there's what we call OT versus IT. You are IT Central, but this is OT. Generally, we don't have the same level of skillset as IT individuals or IT professionals have. This particular product doesn't require you to be a computer scientist to be able to understand its proprietary algorithm and to be able to deploy, use, and work within it. It integrates well with a robust SIEM or SOAR solution, and it plays nice with others. We use other detection solutions like CyberX or site provision with Cisco, and it plays nice. That's one of the things we really liked about it.

The most functional item that we use is the process to turn off the false flags that it causes.

I think Cylance has just done a great job for us so far. I think that is the headliner for our experience with the product. The computer interface really has next to nothing on it, which is nice. You see what you need to see and there are really no distractions or extra noise.  

We have not had anything major come up that the product has not handled — at least not that we have known of. There have been a total of zero issues.

The solution is very quick at easily changing the levels of protection for each computer and the server. It's very easy to control and to see what is happening with each computer. It's very easy to choose, which computer I can look at and check.

The product works pretty well. It does a good job catching good viruses. While we haven't had a chance to test against any kind of ransomware attack, I know it works great and I'm not worried about its capabilities in that respect.

The initial setup was straightforward. 

The solution has proven itself to be very stable and unobtrusive.

A user can continue to add endpoints and the solution will continue to perform well.  

Technical support is helpful and responsive.

In most cases, the solution's ability to detect in the MITRE framework and its ability to be able to detect attacks in any one of seven or eight different areas of the life cycle of an attack is very useful.

One of the best features of the solution is that it's easy to deploy. Second is the management part and the protection. It's way ahead of the other solutions compared to the signature-based one.

The base platform, the CylancePROTECT is a very good technology. If you upgraded that into a CylanceOPTICS, that will also help, however, CylancePROTECT itself can do a lot of protection.

There's a feature that they added called PERSONA. This is AI-based user behavior monitoring which is very useful.

It's straightforward to deploy.

This is still new to us. We have explored this solution and it fulfills our requirements, in terms of live malware detection.

We are quite security-focused. Blackberry Protect as an endpoint solution for our service really delivers what we are expecting.

What I like most about Blackberry Protect is that it's easy to deploy. As an end user, you won't need to do anything.

The most valuable features are script blocking and macros within Word documents for stopping unwanted applications from running in the background.

The dashboard is good.

There is not too much overhead, which is good because you don't want unnecessary things that just build in bulk.

I like the AI and mathematical components that they use.

I like the pre-execution method of protection that prevents infection. It is a nice feature.

I find the actual overall endpoint malware protection the most valuable feature of CylancePROTECT.

The solution does a good job of blocking whatever it thinks needs to be blocked and it doesn't require a lot of performance from the computer.
