Dell announced collaboration with Cylance to integrate its technology into Dell Data Security solutions.
The enterprise IT vendor noted that starting in early 2016, Dell will be the only tier one PC vendor to offer a comprehensive security suite integrating Cylance technology with the introduction of Dell Data Protection | Endpoint Security Suite Enterprise.
Cylance is the cybersecurity company that uses artificial intelligence to prevent, rather than just reactively detect, advanced persistent threats and malware.
This collaboration builds on the Dell Ventures investment in Cylance earlier this year as part of its commitment to support new businesses that align with Dell’s strategic direction.
“The security landscape is changing rapidly and businesses are increasingly exposed to new malware and advanced persistent threats,” said Steve Lalla, VP, Commercial Client Software and Solutions, Dell.
Further, the company noted that the new solution will make the most secure PCs today even more secure by providing customers with effective advanced threat protection.
According to Cylance CEO Stuart McClure, traditional signature-based solutions are completely ineffective in defending organizations from cyber threats.
McClure said, “Marrying Dell’s industry-leading endpoint security with Cylance’s artificial intelligence approach provides enterprise organizations with unprecedented protection to actively predict and prevent malware and advanced threats.”
With regard to the availability of the new solution, the company said Dell Data Protection | Endpoint Security Suite Enterprise will be available starting in early 2016.
