Cylance Smart Antivirus™: AI Powered AV for Consumers

Cylance® is pleased to announce the general availability of Cylance Smart Antivirus, the AI powered antivirus software designed specifically for consumers. By extending the enterprise-grade artificial intelligence of CylancePROTECT® into the home, Cylance Smart Antivirus provides Internet users with next-generation security software that proactively predicts and blocks never-before-seen threats.

More than 350,000 new pieces of malware are created every day, and traditional consumer antivirus software simply can’t keep pace with today’s security reality. 

Existing solutions rely on reactive, signature-based technologies that slow down systems, bombard users with pop-up notifications, and require some form of breach in order to begin detecting malware. The exponential growth of malicious code, especially zero-day threats and ransomware, requires more innovative and thoughtful solutions to adequately — and effectively — protect end-users. 

To help consumers stay ahead of bad actors, Cylance Smart Antivirus provides predictive security to spot and block threats before they have a chance to run, without affecting device performance or disrupting the user.

“Consumers deserve security software that is fast, easy to use, and effective,” said Christopher Bray, Senior Vice President, Cylance Consumer. “The consumer antivirus market is long overdue for a groundbreaking solution built on robust technology that allows them to control their security environment.”

With Cylance Smart Antivirus, everyday Internet users now have the option to purchase next-generation software built on artificial intelligence. Many people have experience with legacy products that are only as good as their last update. Such tools require extensive manual interactions such as downloads, installations, reboots, and scans.

Cylance Smart Antivirus is a game-changer by offering an easy set-it-and-forget-it security experience that gives consumers true peace of mind and ease of use.
