Genetec to integrate CylancePROTECT

September 2019 Editor's Choice, CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring, News

Genetec has announced it is partnering with Cylance, a business unit of Blackberry, to bring AI-based antivirus protection to its appliance customers.

Through this partnership, Genetec will offer additional cyber security protection to its Streamvault family of infrastructure solutions by including CylancePROTECT out-of-the-box at no additional cost to its customers. Genetec Streamvault all-in-one and rackmount appliances, storage, and workstations are expected to be shipped pre-installed and optimised with CylancePROTECT in September 2019.

“Genetec is committed to creating secure solutions from the ground up and have practices in place to help identify and mitigate risk for our customers. Cybersecurity is at the core of our development process and we see that cyber threats are evolving faster than ever. With CylancePROTECT, Genetec is delivering the latest in prevention-first, predictive security technology to Streamvault customers and providing them with up-to-date protection, without compromising appliances’ guaranteed performance,” said Francis Lachance, director, video and appliances at Genetec.

CylancePROTECT protects endpoints and organisations from compromise by combining the power of artificial intelligence to block malware infections with additional security controls that safeguard against script-based, file-less memory, and external device-based attacks. Unlike traditional endpoint security products that rely on signatures and behaviour analysis to detect threats in the environment, CylancePROTECT uses machine learning, not signatures, to identify and block known and unknown malware from running on endpoints.

The software delivers prevention against common and unknown (zero-day) threats without an Internet connection. It continuously protects an endpoint without disrupting the end-user and provides minimal impact on system resources.

“For years, traditional antivirus prevention products relied on signatures as their primary threat protection method. Assuming all attacks on a business had been seen before, using signatures made sense. However, today, malware mutates daily, even hourly, making signature-based prevention tools obsolete. In mission-critical industries, such as the physical security industry, organisations need to think beyond traditional antivirus,” said Steve Rossi, global director of OEM sales at Cylance.

Because it uses very little computing power, CylancePROTECT will not affect the smooth running of Genetec appliances, allowing customers to benefit from proactive threat detection without monopolising crucial resources. In addition, with no Internet connection or signature updates required, CylancePROTECT will protect remote endpoints connected to the Genetec system.
