Forrester Consulting was commissioned to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study to examine the potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by deploying Cylance's advanced threat protection solution, CylancePROTECT®, and its deployment and configuration services, ThreatZero™. The study aims to provide readers with a framework to evaluate the potential financial impact of CylancePROTECT and ThreatZero on their organizations, which will improve customer success with advanced cybersecurity and antivirus protection solutions. To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated with an investment in Cylance, Forrester interviewed the Chief Information Security Officer for a Large State County Government, who has used the solutions for over a year. Cylance provides a new-generation, predictive, cybersecurity, and malware prevention solution that leverages artificial intelligence to prevent malware from executing on endpoints in real time. This is usually implemented with ThreatZero, which is a continuous professional service program rendered by Cylance for users of CylancePROTECT. ThreatZero guides through the planning, implementation, integration, and ongoing optimization of the solution. This often includes end user education, training, and support to totally eliminate endpoint threats and incidents. With CylancePROTECT and ThreatZero, the organization was able to reduce security breaches to almost zero, catching malware before it ever gained access to public records. Relative to their previous endpoint protection, this significantly reduced costs from remediation/reimaging and incidence response. Additionally, IT and security employees’ productivity were boosted.

There is one certainty with cybersecurity and that is nothing is certain. Take for example the role the endpoint plays in keeping an enterprise secure. While many cybersecurity professionals are relatively certain that endpoints are locked down and security policies are being enforced, the simple fact of the matter is that endpoints prove to be the root of most compromises.
As companies embrace cloud services and encourage employee mobility, digital interactions with company resources have become more distributed and virtualized, blurring the traditional concept of the endpoint. Forrester Research surveyed 1000+ IT professionals to better understand how endpoint security challenges are changing for enterprises.
To protect company and customer data, it is increasingly necessary for enterprises to revisit how they approach endpoint security. Read the research brief to uncover key trends in enterprise security, and how IT can protect their enterprise through a more secure and managed web browser.
