Toshiba Starts Selling Cylance Antivirus Software

Irvine-based antivirus software developer Cylance reported Thursday that it has signed a distribution agreement with Toshiba, where Toshiba Corporation Industrial ICT Solutions Company Group (Toshiba Industrial ICT Solutions) will sell its artificial intelligence-based antivirus solution. Cylance said the deal came about after Toshiba Group started installing CylancePROTECT internally, with an in-house deployment on approximately 5,500 endpoints. CylancePROTECT is Cylance's software for detecting and preventing malware attacks, using machine learning, rather than signatures.
