Cylance receives $20 million in funding

Posted Feb 21, 2014

Cylance is a cyber security company that was founded by former McAfee chief technology officer Stuart McClure. Cylance has received $20 million in Series B funding from Blackstone, Khosla Ventures, and Fairhaven Capital.

Cylance is an enterprise, critical infrastructure, and embedded cyber security firm that has one of the most advanced threat detection engines powered by machine learning and algorithmic modeling.

?Cylance has long held the belief that security isn?t rocket science, it just needs to be incredibly effective and silent ? and applying math is the secret,? stated McClure. ?The hacking abilities of malicious actors have far outpaced the capacity of the human defender. It?s time for the old security models to fade out and bring in the new. We don?t ever have to trust the vendor anymore to determine whether something is safe or not, we can just ?trust the math?.?
