CUJO AI partners with Cylance for cross-spectrum cybersecurity offerings within the connected home

Cylance, provider of AI-based, prevention-first security solutions, announced on Tuesday an alliance with CUJO AI, a network intelligence company that provides AI-driven security and device management solutions.

CUJO AI offers network security and advanced device identification to more than 16 million households through its current partnerships with the top network operators in the country; Cylance protects nearly 15 million endpoints across thousands of enterprise environments. Together, they offer comprehensive prevention, detection, response, and prediction for the connected home.

Like providers in other industries, many network operators still rely on legacy technology that no longer meets the needs of today’s consumers. In fact, a recent survey found that 63 percent of providers still use DNS blacklisting for end-user protection, and 45 percent do not feel confident they are ready to manage internet of things (IoT) security requirements for their customers.

The CUJO AI partnership with Cylance will combine AI endpoint and network security to allow telecom providers to offer end-to-end protection for all connected devices in the home.

Cylance develops artificial intelligence to deliver prevention-first, predictive security products and smart, simple, secure solutions that change how organizations approach endpoint security. Cylance provides full spectrum predictive threat prevention and visibility across the enterprise to combat the most notorious and advanced cybersecurity attacks.

With AI-based malware prevention, threat hunting, automated detection and response, and expert security services, Cylance protects the endpoint without increasing staff workload or costs.

CUJO AI is the leading artificial intelligence company providing network operators AI-driven solutions, including AI security, advanced device identification, advanced parental controls, and more. CUJO AI Platform creates an intuitive end-user facing application for LAN and wireless (mobile and public WiFi), powered by machine learning and real-time data. Each solution can be implemented as a white-label offering.

“Ransomware and other types of cyber crime are on the rise, and we are on a mission to protect every computer and user under the sun,” said Christopher Bray, senior vice president and general manager of Cylance Consumer. “The Cylance partnership with CUJO AI allows us to combine the best AI-driven algorithms in endpoint protection and network security to proactively detect and prevent cyber attacks on an unprecedented scale.”

“Joining forces with Cylance allows us to improve the cybersecurity landscape by offering the only solution that delivers comprehensive cross-spectrum protection,” said Einaras von Gravrock, chief executive officer of CUJO AI. “It’s crucial to provide cybersecurity tools capable of detecting specific malicious patterns within network traffic without decryption and deep packet inspection (DPI) to keep connected devices in the home safe.”
