Cylance Named a Dell Founders 50 Innovative Technology Startup

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Dec 17, 2015) -  Cylance, the company that is revolutionizing cybersecurity through the use of artificial intelligence to proactively prevent, rather than just reactively detect, advanced persistent threats and malware, announced today that it has been named a Dell Founders 50 Innovative Technology Startup company, one of a small number of global startups that Dell feels are poised to become household names in the near future by disrupting their respective industries.

This year's Founders 50 selections span 14 industries, are all using innovative technology solutions to propel their growth, and have already received a combined $2 billion in funding.

In November, Dell also announced a collaboration with Cylance to integrate its technology into Dell's Data Security solutions. 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. 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 traditional signature-based endpoint security solutions running on about 80% of corporate computers are completely ineffective in defending the corporate world against cyberthreats," said Stuart McClure, Founder and CEO of Cylance. "Cylance has become a disruptive force in the cybersecurity industry through a revolutionary, preventative approach that provides unprecedented levels of protection. We thank Dell for selecting Cylance to be a part of its Founders 50, and see it as the latest endorsement of our efforts to redefine the standard of cybersecurity protection."
