California cybersecurity company Cylance has launched operations in Ireland with the opening of an office in Cork, which will promote and help develop its next-generation products to protect against malware and other persistent threats.Cylance’s products use artificial intelligence to proactively prevent, rather than just reactively detect, advanced persistent threats and malware, and the Cork base is part of its international expansion to meet demand for its latest end-point protection product, CylancePROTECT.
Cylance has several jobs in its new Cork office, including sales, sales engineering, and customer support, and hopes to add malware analysis and software development roles in the future. The company will create approximately 150 jobs in its new office on the South Mall in Cork over the next three years. Its investment is supported by IDA Ireland.
The company says that its AI-based CylanceProtect is more effective than traditional antivirus products. It says it protects millions of network endpoints (computers and servers) for more than 3,000 large enterprise customers, and is preventing cyber-attacks every day that could otherwise have resulted in data breaches or crippled network performance, employee productivity and brand reputation.
Cylance CEO Stuart McClure (pictured) said: “Cork has become an international cybersecurity and technology centre, and we are proud to be a part of that. Our mission has always been to protect everyone under the sun, and tapping the rich technology pool in Ireland will help us greatly in this effort. The IDA Ireland has been extremely welcoming and we greatly appreciate their expert assistance.”
Cylance was founded by McClure and Ryan Permeh in 2012. McClure was previously co-founder of Foundstone, a security consultancy, which he sold to McAfee in 2004. McClure was McAfee’s Chief Tech Officer until he left to set up Cylance, and would know all about Cork as McAfee has a big base there. He is the author of Hacking Exposed.
