Information technology security and data preservation are both practical and ethical requirements

Technology has fundamentally transformed the business landscape: highly sensitive and privileged client data is routinely located on computers or networked servers; e-mail has all but replaced the postal service and the paper memorandum; e-filing has become normative and e-discovery has become a regular part of life. 

While such fundamental changes to the way business, and the business of law, is practiced has resulted in tremendous gains in efficiency, the challenges presented by this transformation are legion. Information technology security and electronic data preservation are both practical and ethical requirements. Law firms and firm clients have become targets for hackers and other cyber criminals due to the sensitive and valuable information they retain. 

At Cylance, protecting you data is our first concern. How we achieve that protection differs fundamentally from the rest of the cybersecurity industry in two crucial ways: 

CylancePROTECT is a next generation endpoint protection product built to stop even the most malicious of advanced threats from ever executing in your environment. By leveraging the power of big data, machine learning and genetic algorithms to detect what was previously “undetectable”, CylancePROTECT offers true protection against Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) style attacks. 

The Cylance Professional Services team is equipped with cutting- edge proprietary techniques and tools to help your firm – and your clients – manage forward-looking data related risk, as well as to address security breaches that may arise. Our incident response team is available 24/7/365 to assist in the critical first 24 hours, in the unfortunate case a security incident befalls your firm or clients.

At Cylance, we don’t just fix problems; our holistic solutions and guidance protects data while detecting and preventing both current and future intrusions. Rather than waiting until a breach has occurred, we Prevent, Protect and Respond. 

From next generation endpoint protection to security assessments, incident response and expert consulting, if you have a problem, Cylance is ideally situated to provide solutions in a discreet, efficient, and professional manner.

Our experts draw on decades of experience in both the public and private sectors and stand ready to assist you or your clients at a moments notice.

By staying ahead of the curve, and taking a proactive stance regarding information security, data protection and preservation, you and your clients will realize substantial savings in cost and attorney time. In short, the best defense is a good offense, and at Cylance, we provide you both, preventing the next attack rather than detecting and responding to the last one.
