Competitive Analysis

Cynet 360 Vs Cylance

The Cynet 360 Difference

Attack Prevention and Detection

Malicious activity manifests itself in one of three ways: file/process execution, network traffic and user behavior. Cylance is oriented on file/process-based threats and typically gain good results on that field. Cylance relies solely on AI-based static analysis capabilities to detect and prevent attacks. While this approach is efficient against malicious files, it offers little protection against fileless, Macros and LOLbin threats. Moreover, researchers have demonstrated that AI-based analysis approaches can be bypassed by identifying the biases inherent in the detection algorithms toward certain benign files to trick the product into accepting malicious files (see here).

cylance bypass antivirus

Users of AI-based static analysis report that it is prone to false positives and often blocks legitimate software as malicious. To overcome the false positives, IT and security teams must invest heavily in whitelisting and exclusion of organizational software and other legitimate apps.

Cylance also lacks the ability to identify and block attacks that manifest only in anomalous network traffic (lateral movement, data exfiltration and network-based credential theft) or user behavior (anomalous login of compromised user account).

Cynet 360 uses Cynet Sensor Fusion™ technology to continuously collect and analyze endpoint, user and network activities within the protected environment, powering the ability to identify and block both file/process-based attacks, as well network and user based ones, rendering complete coverage beyond the capabilities of Cylance. Cynet also provides deception technologies to help expose threats across your environment.

Moreover, by fusing together all the environment activity signals, Cynet 360 is able to uncover the true context of each process execution, network traffic and user behavior to unveil and block threats that are undetectable by monitoring just file/processes as Cylance does. Cynet successfully blocks the execution of processes that Cylance allows to run.


RESPONSE: Managed Detection Services (MDR)

Cynet’s CyOps team operates a 24/7 SOC, providing customers with full MDR services with no additional payment over Cynet 360 core offering. CyOps continuously monitors, trains and optimizes Cynet 360 detection algorithms based on over 30 threat intelligence feeds and detected attacks.

CyOps provides Cynet customers with the additional services:

  • Alert monitoring
  • Attack investigation
  • Remediation guidance
  • Exclusions, whitelisting and system fine tuning

RESPONSE: Coverage

Advanced cyberattacks leave their mark across all parts of the targeted environment: endpoints, files, process, user accounts and network traffic.

Cylance has a limited number of endpoint/file remediations (isolate, kill process and delete/quarantine file), limited host remediations and no network or user remediation capabilities. Cynet provides a complete set of remediation tools for infected endpoints, malicious files/ processes, compromised user accounts and attacker-controlled traffic.

Moreover, Cynet 360 can act as a response orchestration interface that communicates with core components such as Firewalls and Active Directory to expand the response process across the entire environment.

RESPONSE: Automation

Cynet 360 supports the use of preset and user-created created remediation playbooks that automate response for detected threats by chaining together several discreet remediation actions (for example, isolate the endpoint + disable user account in Active Directory as an automated response user account compromise detection).

These playbooks both scale the security team alert-handling capacity by automating repetitive tasks and radically increase the share of attacks that are autonomously addressed and resolved by Cynet 360 without need of human intervention.

Monitoring and Control

Continuous monitoring of all entities and activities in the environment is enables users to discover exposed attack surfaces and address them (vulnerable systems and apps, unchanged user passwords, etc.), and by that eliminate the risk of up to 60% of common attack vectors.

Cynet 360 uses Cynet Sensor Fusion™ technology to automate the collection and correlation of executed file/processes, user account activities, file access and network traffic, introducing unmatched speed and ease to all monitoring and control workflows.

Cynet includes 24x7 Managed Detection and Response (MDR) services to all clients that continuously monitor clients’ environments, providing best-of-breed detection and response services. Cylance offers MDR services, CylanceGUARD, but as an optional, fee-based service.
