Q&A: Cylance CEO On Layoffs, Entering New Security Markets, And Why He Believes Legacy Vendors Won't Be Able To Compete
The Next Phase Of Cylance
Cylance shot to the top of the next-generation endpoint security market with a technology that uses machine learning and artificial intelligence to detect and prevent threats. Now, the Irvine, Calif.-based company is facing steeper competition as more companies look to enter the rapidly growing endpoint security market and other competitors continue to mature. In an interview with CRN, CEO Stuart McClure talked about the company's recent round of layoffs and where it is positioning itself for its next phase of growth, including entering new markets. McClure also addressed the re-emergence of some of the company's legacy competition – including Symantec and McAfee -- and how (or if) he expected that to impact the company's sales and strategy. Take a look at what he had to say.
