BENGALURU, INDIA: Cylance, a provider of computer and network security services and solutions, announces the expansion of its operations in the APAC region to provide custom cybersecurity services and solutions in select APAC countries. The announcement comes on back of successful ventures in Australia and Japan. The company now expands its services in the APAC region, reports VoicenData.
Cylance plans on adding a number of managed security services providers (MSSP’s), resellers, distributors, solution providers (Value at Risks) and various other IT solution providers to extend its global presence and provide better services to its customers.
Cylance uses a lightweight agent that prevents, protects and predicts cyber threats by implementing Artificial Intelligence and Machine learning technology. The software prevents and protects against the presently challenging ransomware cybersecurity attacks and also assists businesses and individuals in remediation from the impact of cybersecurity attacks leveraging Trojan malware.
With the customized cyberattack toolkits made available for hackers, an estimate of 90,000 infections are occurring per day, costing businesses worldwide a staggering $60 million dollars loss per year in breach-related costs.
“We are seeing tremendous interest with partners across the APAC region, whose customers are desperate for a preventive endpoint solution that really works. Working with our partners, we know that the best way to satisfy customer demand for Cylance solution in APAC is to focus on specific partners for each country. We have used Australia as a launch pad into APAC, enabling us to gain significant traction in Japan. Our strategy will continue to be about evaluating the requirements for each country and then determining the best approach for engaging that market through partners, resellers, distributors, solution providers (VARs) and MSSPs,” says Andy Solterbeck, Regional Director for APAC, Cylance.
