Another announcement of a partnership to embed security in a vendor’s product offering. My only word of caution is that endpoint protection is only part of the security jigsaw…:
Schneider Electric, the global specialist in energy management and automation, has announced a new partnership agreement with Cylance, the company that revolutionised the antivirus and endpoint protection industry with true AI-powered prevention that blocks malware, fileless attacks and today’s most advanced cyber threats. Schneider Electric Software will work closely with Cylance to enable heightened levels of security for customers leveraging the Industrial Software Platform for engineering, planning and operations, asset performance and monitoring and control across its industrial and infrastructure operations.
As operations grow increasingly digital, the need to provide safeguards against cybersecurity threats becomes critical. Greater investment is needed to maintain the needed level of security to protect assets, processes and safety of operations. This begins with how software is implemented.
This agreement involves placing Cylance’s security capabilities within the Industrial Software Platform. Artificial Intelligence and machine learning are two technologies driving innovation across industrial and infrastructure operations. These technologies can now be applied to pattern recognition applications to deliver a best in class solution for cyber security protection.
