Cylance Defends Democracy

Company Donates AI-Powered Antivirus Software to Help Safeguard





, the leading provider of AI-driven, prevention-first security

solutions, today announced a non-partisan initiative to support all 2018

U.S. political campaigns with its award-winning


software at no cost and with no credit card

authorization. The campaign initiative is just one part of the company’s

free license offer available to all members of the public between now

and November.

“Cyber security is an increasingly serious concern for all Americans,

and election seasons heighten the importance of keeping information

safe,” said


, founder and chief executive at Cylance. “Our software can

help protect everyone, but safeguarding the integrity of the democratic

process from the unprecedented number of threats is especially important

to us.”

Cylance Smart Antivirus gives all Americans―including 2018 candidates

and their teams―peace of mind and ease of use by extending the

enterprise-grade artificial intelligence (AI) of CylancePROTECT

to personal devices. This next-generation software is designed to

proactively predict and block never-before-seen threats to help keep

personal data secure.

“Data and information are at risk like never before, and any person in

any organization is a target for cyber attacks that range from malware

to phishing to ransomware,” said McClure. “Many people are vulnerable

because they don’t have the resources or tools to understand and stop

the latest online threats, especially during elections where campaign

breaches are discovered all the time. It is clear that malicious actors

are ramping up their activity in advance of the midterms, and we know

malevolent hackers will exploit any vulnerability at any level to

undermine a candidate’s run for office. It is our hope that the free

offer to the public will particularly help people involved in political

campaigns. We want to do our part to protect the democratic process from

interference however we can, wherever we can.”

Other antivirus 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, but

Cylance Smart Antivirus uses machine learning and AI to predict, spot,

and block threats before they have a chance to run―regardless of where

the threats are launched.

“It’s effortless for hackers to attack a single candidate, staff member,

or voter who may not have the time or skills to determine what threat

actors are targeting,” said


, Cylance’s chief security and trust officer. “Cylance can

fortify the front lines by donating software to American citizens,

including political organizations, to help ensure their security

ecosystems are protected against what is driving the cyber risk cycle we

are seeing in every organization today―the execution of malicious code

that allows attackers the foothold necessary to steal, disrupt, or

otherwise generate harm.”

Cylance invites other providers of cybersecurity solutions to join them

by also donating complementary products and services. “Our industry

leads the world in developing cutting-edge cybersecurity offerings to

protect organizations and individuals,” said


, general manager of Cylance Consumer. “We hope our peers in the

industry will stand with us to help all American citizens and protect

the integrity of our democracy.”

Cylance will provide a free license of Cylance Smart Antivirus to any

subscriber from now until November 9; all free licenses will expire on

November 30, 2018. Users can register for their free license without

requiring a credit card here: https://promos.cylance.com/election2018
