AEP 2018 Follow-On Test Report: Cylance CylancePROTECT + OPTICS v2.2.1011

During NSS Labs’ 2018 Advanced Endpoint Protection (AEP) Group Test, the Cylance CylancePROTECT + OPTICS v2.0.1450 failed to initiate part of the OPTICS engine, which primarily impacted the exploit and blended threats test categories. This affected its position on the Security Value Map (SVM)™. After working closely with NSS, Cylance rolled out a new version of its software (v2.2.1011) for OPTICS. Cylance submitted this updated product for follow-on testing using the AEP Test Methodology v2.0, the same methodology used in the AEP Group Test. 

As with all NSS Labs group tests, there was no fee for participation. All testing was conducted independently and was not paid for by any vendor.
