Key aspects and features of CylancePROTECT include:

  • Threat Intelligence Integration: The solution integrates threat intelligence feeds and indicators of compromise (IOCs) to enhance detection accuracy and effectiveness. It leverages global threat intelligence to identify emerging threats and block known malicious entities.
  • Centralized Management Console: CylancePROTECT offers a centralized management console that allows administrators to deploy, configure, and monitor endpoint protection across the entire organization. It provides visibility into security events, alerts, and compliance status.
  • Automated Response: The solution includes automated response capabilities to help organizations quickly contain and remediate security incidents. It offers predefined response actions and workflows to streamline incident response processes.

Ingesting CylancePROTECT EndPoint Events


You can configure Cylance Endpoint Security to forward events to a single SIEM solution or syslog server. The content of each event is Unicode plain text consisting of key-value pairs, separated by commas. If your organization requires events to be sent to multiple SIEM solutions or syslog servers, you may be able to configure a syslog forwarder. See the documentation for your Syslog or SIEM server for information about how to configure forwarding to multiple servers.
