AI cybersecurity provider Cylance has been positioned as a ‘Visionary' in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms for the second year running, placing highest for its Ability To Execute.

The company states the Ability to Execute criteria include high scoring in product and service; Overall viability; Sales execution/pricing; market responsiveness/record; marketing execution; operations; and customer experience.

The company says the positioning highlights its vision to continue innovating year on year, and comes off the back of ‘unprecedented' momentum.

The company, which uses artificial intelligence, machine learning and algorithms to predict and prevent advanced cyber threats, experienced 607% growth, far exceeding its 322% growth in 2015.

“Nothing honours us more greatly than reports of success from our customers,” says Stuart McClure, Cylance president and CEO.

The company states that its customers have reported experiencing ‘easy deployment and management, low performance impact, and high pre-execution detection rates against both known and unknown attack types'.

“The reports of their ability to prevent even zero-day malware from executing with CylancePROTECT are highly gratifying. This ability to prevent cyber attacks in the real world is what motivates us not just to keep executing on our original vision, but to keep innovating year after year,” McClure concludes.
