Founded by former McAfee executives, Cylance is working to remove the "human element" from security with its enterprise endpoint security platform that uses mathematical analysis to detect threats. The Irvine, Calif-.-based company said the problem with traditional security is it relies on people knowing what is good or bad, or trusting security vendors to know. But Cylance's Infinity solution relies on data mining, algorithms and machine learning to collect, classify and learn what is a threat and what isn't. In February, the company raised $20 million in Series B venture capital funding to accelerate product growth and its go-to-market strategy.
