Cylance Launches Multi-Tenant MSSP Dashboard


Cylance, a company that provides artificial intelligence-based cybersecurity solutions, has launched the CylancePROTECT multi-tenant console. The dashboard provides MSSPs with administrative and role-based access control for management and monitoring of customer security, the company said in a prepared statement.

With the CylancePROTECT console, MSSPs can manage all customer accounts within a single portal, Cylance stated.

The console enables MSSPs to automatically provision tenants, manage tenant information and view tenant-specific data related to devices, policies, users and zones, Cylance indicated.

Also, MSSPs can use the console to access individual tenants, manage device and policy settings and view reports, according to Cylance.

Cylance and the Managed Security Services Market: Here's What You Need to Know

Cylance appears to be targeting the managed security services market, which is reflected in some of the company's recent moves.

In August, Cylance launched CylancePROTECT Home Edition, a next-generation antivirus product that enables MSSPs and other channel partners to deliver cybersecurity services to consumers.

CylancePROTECT Home Edition provides advanced persistent threat (APT) and malware prevention for the personal devices of employees and their families, according to Cylance. It is available to all channel partners that are currently authorized to sell Cylance licenses, and the minimum order of CylancePROTECT Home Edition is 1,000 licenses, May Mitchell, Cylance's vice president of worldwide field and channel marketing, told MSSP Alert.

Cylance announced its MSSP partner program in August 2016. Today, the program enables MSSPs to leverage an AI-based endpoint protection product that uses predictive math modeling to safeguard customers against advanced cyber threats, the company indicated.

What Does the Future Hold for Cylance?

Cylance has enjoyed strong growth over the past year, which is reflected in the following company milestones:

  • 283 percent revenue growth year over year.
  • 169 percent growth in total customers.
  • 119 percent growth in overall bookings.

In addition, Cylance has recorded more than 1,454 percent revenue growth over the past three years, the company said in a prepared statement. It also continues to explore ways to further increase its earnings and expand its global reach.

Cylance in August appointed AlienVault veteran Brian Robins as its chief financial officer (CFO). The addition of Robins, who has more than 20 years of experience in accounting and finance for security and technology companies, has fueled speculation that Cylance may launch an initial public offering (IPO) in the near future.

Furthermore, Cylance in June appointed Rahul Kashyap as its chief product officer and John Giacomini as its executive vice president of global sales.

Kashyap previously served as executive vice president of products at Bromium and managed worldwide threat research at McAfee Labs. Meanwhile, Giacomini has led global sales teams for security companies for over 17 years.
