During NSS Labs’ 2018 Advanced Endpoint Protection (AEP) Group Test, CylancePROTECT® and CylanceOPTICS™ v2.0.1450 failed to initiate part of the CylanceOPTICS engine, which primarily impacted the exploit and blended threats test categories. This affected the Cylance® position on the Security Value Map (SVM)™. After working closely with NSS, Cylance rolled out a new version of its software (v2.2.1011) for CylanceOPTICS. Cylance submitted this updated product for follow-on testing using the AEP Test Methodology v2.0, the same methodology used in the AEP Group Test. The product improved its Block Rate by 6.9% and its Additional Detection Rate by 0.2%. Learn more about the results in the NSS Labs testing report.
SE Labs tested CylancePROTECT® in an offline environment against major threats that subsequently appeared in the wild. The test explores the product’s ability to prevent new threats from attacking endpoint systems successfully. CylancePROTECT contains technology designed to identify and block malware using what it claims to be an “artificial intelligence” (AI) model. This model can be updated over time. However, in this test we used the model created in May 2015 and did not permit further updates so that the software was unable to receive new models or edit the existing one. The test exposed systems protected by this older version of CylancePROTECT to very impactful threats discovered and reported widely after May 2015. In this way, the test shows to what extent the product was able to predict how future threats would appear. This “Predictive Advantage” (PA), the advantage that users of the product have against future adversaries, is presented in this report.
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. Read more in the full TEI report.
Cylance engaged SE Labs to independently assess CylancePROTECT’s ability to predict and prevent previously unknown threats. SE Labs pitted the May 2015 version of CylancePROTECT® — without a cloud connection or updates — against some of the most destructive and disruptive threats that appeared between 2016 and 2018, after the model was trained and deployed.
When Daniel Shuler joined Phoenix Children’s Hospital (PCH) as CISO in 2016, he knew the hospital would be a tempting target for cyber criminals due to the massive troves of sensitive data it collects to diagnose and treat patients. Over the next three years, Shuler spearheaded a complete overhaul of PCH’s security fabric. First, he decommissioned the legacy AV and engaged BlackBerry Cylance’s ThreatZERO™ consultants to deploy CylancePROTECT® on over 4,000 endpoints. Soon after, CylancePROTECT stopped a ransomware attack that could have disrupted patient care by preventing access to electronic medical record data. Next, he engaged a BlackBerry Cylance Red Team to perform annual penetration testing assignments. Says Shuler, “Our relationship is unique in my experience. BlackBerry Cylance has proven repeatedly that they have our best interests at heart and that they share our commitment to provide the best care possible for children and their families.” Read the case study for the full s

Validating the completeness and accuracy of sales (and related balance sheet impact) is of paramount importance, but often requires significant manual effort. As revenues grow, organizations are forced to devote additional resources to processes like sales audit and other detailed reconciliations or expose themselves to risk.
For the retail industry, having an adequate sales audit process is crucial to the integrity of financial statements. And innovations like new forms of consumer payments and omni-channel models only add to the complexity.
Data breaches have become a fact of life for organizations of all sizes, in every industry and in many parts of the globe. While many organizations anticipate that at some point a non-malicious or malicious data breach will occur, the focus of this study is to understand the steps organizations are taking—or not taking--to deal with the aftermath of a breach or what we call the Post Breach Boom.
Sponsored by Solera Networks, The Post Breach Boom study was conducted by Ponemon Institute to understand the differences between non-malicious and malicious data breaches and what lessons are to be learned from the investigation and forensic activities organizations conduct following the loss or theft of sensitive and confidential information. The majority of respondents in this study believe it is critical that a thorough post-breach analysis and forensic investigation be conducted following either a non-malicious or malicious security breach.

Robotic process automation describes the use of technology to automate tasks that are traditionally
done by a human being. The technology itself mimics an end user by simulating user actions such as
navigating within an application or entering data into forms according to a set of rules. RPA is often
used to automate routine administrative tasks that typically require a human being to interact with
multiple systems, but RPA technology is evolving to support the automation of increasingly
sophisticated processes at scale within enterprise architectures rather than on the desktop. Over the
past two years, RPA has been adopted by a number of business process outsourcing (BPO) providers
and a growing number of end-user organizations are now deploying the technology themselves to
create “virtual workforces” of robotic workers.

After decades in the limelight, email remains the most powerful channel for eCommerce marketers. And this success continues even as many eCommerce marketing teams rely heavily on batch and blast emails that go to their entire list without any customization.

DON’T LET ONE-TIME BUYERS BECOME ONLY-TIME BUYERS
One-time buyers are retail gold: They present an incremental revenue stream and a chance to foster valuable new customer relationships.
But while that first purchase is an achievement and the mark of a strong customer acquisition program, what comes after that first purchase is just as important. And for most retailers, it’s what comes after that presents the biggest problem.

Big data projects often entail moving data between multiple cloud and legacy on-premise environments. A typical scenario involves moving data from a cloud-based source to a cloud-based normalization application, to an on-premise system for consolidation with other data, and then through various cloud and on-premise applications that analyze the data. Processing and analysis turn the disparate data into business insights delivered though dashboards, reports, and data warehouses - often using cloud-based apps.
The workflows that take data from ingestion to delivery are highly complex and have numerous dependencies along the way. Speed, reliability, and scalability are crucial. So, although data scientists and engineers may do things manually during proof of concept, manual processes don't scale.

To better support the business, I&O managers often turn to IT service support management (ITSSM) tools. ITSSM tools enable IT operations organizations, specifically infrastructure and operations (I&O) managers, to better support the production environment. ITSSM tools automate the tasks and workflows associated with the management and delivery of quality IT services to the business. The vendors in this Magic Quadrant offer integrated products that address functionality from a combined perspective of people, processes and tooling. BMC was rated as a leader by Gartner in the Magic Quadrant.
Gartner clients often ask for a comparison of BMC and ServiceNow as viable strategic partners in the ITSSM tool space. Both vendors provide strong ITSSM offerings and benefit from excellent global brand recognition, but the similarities end there. Outside of ITSSM, BMC and ServiceNow are two different companies with two different strategic road maps. Choosing between BMC and ServiceNow requires IT organizations to determine how value will be gained beyond the use of their ITSSM offerings.
