Enhancing the Netskope Security Cloud with Cylance partnership

We’re happy to announce our partnership with Cylance, an industry leader in AI-driven threat protection. The threat landscape of cloud and web is constantly evolving – and to better protect our customers from the myriad of unknown threats, Netskope is partnering with Cylance to offer Cylance’s AI engine as an additional layer of threat protection in the Netskope Security Cloud.

Netskope Threat Protection already provides multiple layers of cloud threat protection including static and dynamic anti-virus inspection, user behavior anomaly detection, heuristic analysis, sandbox analysis, and more. And backed by the Netskope Threat Research Labs, a team focused on finding and analyzing new cloud- and web-based threats, Netskope allows customers to defend against new and dynamic threats across the cloud. In conjunction with Cylance, organizations can now include Cylance’s advanced, AI-based malware detection with threat intelligence from thousands more customers for further protection.
This partnership will add Cylance’s AI-based malware detection engine as another layer of defense to existing Netskope Threat Protection capabilities (which include heuristic and dynamic analyses, threat intelligence, and more). Customers of the joint solution will be able to protect users in the cloud from zero-day and unknown malware with a best-of-breed combined solution using multiple layers of defense.

We’re especially excited to partner with Cylance as they’re a leader in using artificial intelligence to defend against malware. Cylance is already trusted by thousands of organizations around the world and by working with Netskope to integrate and share threat intelligence, both companies will be able to enhance eachothers advanced threat protection capabilities to more effectively protect all our customers.
