CylancePROTECTWe are a government vendor and in order to get a computer to service our equipment into government property naval base, shipyard, vessel, etc. However, the Cylance Client does not show this. A user took his laptop to a shipyard last week and they would not allow the laptop on site because nowhere does the client show as up-to-date and the last updated date. If you right click and check for updates it will, check for updates and say none found, however this only works if you have a internet connection, which isn't available on the shipyard either. This is a huge issue for us as we need to be able to get computers approved to do needed work. If your endpoint protection product needs constant updates, it's just a matter of time before something malicious gets through. PROTECT doesn't rely on definition databases for detection, eliminating the need for daily, weekly and monthly updates. If you paid for 3 years of service, don't you have support? I did contact support, and have an open ticket with them. I was just trying to get some other insight. Cylance leverages artificial intelligence and machine learning instead of virus definition databases and signatures. That is until this happened. Right click the cylance icon in the tray, choose "about". It will list the version installed, but not the date it was installed. However, showing the date might be a problem for you because they are doing client updates around once a month now. How old will they still consider to be "up to date"? The requirement for the Government facilities is "able to show the Antivirus is installed and that it has been updated within 24 hours", give that Cylance doesn't have daily signature updates, there doesn't seem to be a way to do this. Not a great option by it seems to be working to get the equipment onto the ShipYard. Brand Representative for Cylance, Inc. You should be able to see that the 'AV' status is correctly reported and kept up to date in Windows Security Center. Here is a screenshot of what that looks like:. I'm not even sure that will make them happy either. You are fighting a policy that is not likely to change, what you have already done is what I would do in your shoes.

The behavior-based engine is much more accurate and responsive than traditional signature-based antivirus. The console is really easy to use and the device policies are highly configurable. I rated everything 5 stars because I truly feel like they have earned it. While these can be whitelisted, it really interrupts the workflow to stop and have to update the whitelist and then push it to all devices. Write a Review. Brian F. Show More Ratings. Reviewer Source. Even with excellent email filtering, which we also have, there are just too many things that can go horribly wrong. With three years experience and NO compromised endpoints, I can focus on other security layers instead of faffing around fixing endpoints. I have tested the Cylance client against true zero day attacks, not recognized on VirusTotal, shared with me by an MSP friend. When I throw attacks against old-build agents, and those attacks are obliterated, it helps me sleep better at night. I don't see these attacks in my environment, hence the testing. That's why my MSP pal doesn't have his SMB clients on this product, they can't comprehend the value proposition of something so different to what they're familiar with. I guess that's why the marketing initiatives can seem a little over the top, it's hard to get the idea across when some hater says "doesn't detect EICAR! Jack L. The problem with signature based solutions is they can be easily defeated.

Issue now is, while there's an ongoing debate with our external helpdesk provider mostly against removing the AV product they support, my users are suffering because everything including logging in to external applications is slow. Shouldn't make any difference since I installed Trendmicro in coexist mode, however there is way too many errors resulting from cylance quarantine folders and unable to clean since the file it detected actually doesn't exist when I follow up with the logs. I feel like if I can get rid of cylance, clear the errors in office scan, maybe there will be some improvement. If not then I'll move on to troubleshooting the dreaded active directory. This was from our MSP. This is the solution that worked for us. Be sure to backup your registry first before attempting An offline device that cannot access the console to make changes to the Self Protection Level or Prevent Service Shutdown settings, changes will need to be made manually to the registry to help uninstall the product. Once the device is back up, you should be able to stop the Cylance service manually and proceed with the uninstall. Fast and appropriate response from Cylance. What I would expect. Issue handled professionally, and no evidence of the exploit being used in the wild. They ended up on my shortlist along with Webroot. That seemed to be the basis for their higher cost argument. You should never have 2 antivirus on the same system or network because as you have experienced it slows everything down. Even if a antivirus thinks its going to be cool and tell you "I can be installed in Coexist mode" that mite be true for that antivirus but not necessarily for the other antivirus, so therefor research has to be done about both antiviruses in correlation to Coexist mode. The 2 Antiviruses are scanning the same files and are competing for supremacy and causing the entire network to suffer. Either way in IT we have to put the client first and atm your client is suffering because of the Service Provider. So if you have your other AV in place or ready to install plus licenses and confirmation from your client then go ahead and remove the AV you wish to Remove and let the Service provider continue on with there ranting at that point its not your problem anymore or at least shouldn't be. From our experience, Trend Micro is really heavy on the system and can cause his type of issue alone. Also, there are a list of folders that should be excluded in Trend to allow them to work together. Memory protection in both Trend and Cylance can cause slow apps and slow systems overall. It sounds like there are a lot of pieces of info missing in your post that would need to be considered before just removing Cylance. We sell a few next-gen AV solutions and have had really great results no infections so far. We did however blow holes in almost every other solution out there and combine that with massive amounts of system resource utilization it makes it hard to recommend keeping both installed. Yeah, I think we all know about 1 and 2, it can be as bad as BSOD and systems never booting, which is why I tested first with several different systems and double-checked with the AV Vendor before doing what I did I requested for the uninstall even before I finished with configuring the new AV policies on the dashboard so was hoping to have a couple of hours to a day between installing the new one and uninstalling the old I didn't plan to have any time in-between where there is no protection whatsoever after what's just happened. I've also tried iobit uninstaller as well as iobit unlocker, now tried revo uninstaller. Neither of them worked. Now I need to figure out how to turn this into a script. About systems currently have both Cylance and Trend Micro. Have you done any testing to see if this solves your problem? I'm skeptical that it will. Slow logins to external applications is simply NOT something Cylance would have anything to do with, it doesn't add up. In Greek mythology, Cerberus is the giant multi-headed dog who guards the gates to the underworld. In the modern world of malware, the equally devilish ransomware variant Cerber is an advanced APT threat. Cerber was first seen back in and popped up again in March on the Dark Web. All of these ransomware variants will encrypt your personal files and programs and often lock you out of your computer completely, demanding a ransom to restore access to your machine and files. Cerber is unique in that it uses a never-before-seen automated system to generate new file names and hashes, nicknamed Cerber Hash Factoryin order to thwart traditional antivirus detection systems that employ signatures to detect malware. This trick is carried out by the server, which delivers the payload from the server-side hash factory. Cerber is able to bypass legacy virus scans to infect a protected machine, even if the antivirus is up to date with all the latest signatures, by morphing its hashes every 15 seconds. This kind of automated morphing of hashes is not unknown, but the speed at which Cerber operates is new and concerning. Infection: Cerber is primarily spread via weaponized Microsoft Word documents. These documents contain malicious macros that leverage Powershell. These are usually sent by email during phishing campaigns. Cerber can also spread by utilizing any one of dozens of different infection mediums, including peer-to-peer P2P networks such as Torrent, via fake apps and software or software updates. Distribution: Cerber is offered on the side as ransomware-as-a-service RaaSallowing wannabe cybercriminals who may not be very tech savvy themselves to capitalize on the destructive capabilities of the ransomware. The RaaS option allows those seeking to utilize Cerber for monetary gain to connect with the original malware authors via a closed secure forum. Exploit Kits: The Cerber payload can also be distributed by means of exploit kits, such as the Magnitude and Neutrino exploit kits. An exploit kit is a separate piece of software, often offered as a service, which can be attached to a hacked website. The exploit kit lies in wait until a vulnerable victim comes along, such as a user with on older operating system or software that has not been updated with the latest security patches. Exploit kits penetrate vulnerabilities in unpatched software such as vulnerability CVE for Adobe Flash Player. The major exploit kits can cost thousands of dollars per month, so they are typically used by larger crime syndicates or particularly successful ransomware distributers. Affiliate Program: According to publicly available reports, Cerber also runs as an affiliate program. Cerber distributers willing to promote and spread the program can earn up to sixty percent of profits, with a five percent bonus for each new Cerber distributer recruited. The rest of the profit goes directly to the original malware author. Geolocation: Cerber currently restricts itself to target specific countries based on their geolocation. Research investigators currently believe that Cerber originated in Russia, due to the fact that the ransomware will not infect users in Russia or in neighboring countries such as Uzbekistan, Moldova, Armenia and Kyrgyzstan. This is most likely to avoid being caught by local law enforcement agents. We had an interesting time downloading these, as each hash delivered by the hash factory is different than the one before it, making duplicating our experiments difficult. The mutex can be considered as a placeholder; it simply prevents the payload from running more than once. Cerber then queries ipinfo. It then replaces all common file extensions with a. The Visual Basic script is used as a scare tactic by connecting to the computer speakers and directly speaking to the victim, alerting them that their files are encrypted — which, as you can imagine, would cause a great deal of alarm. Next, Cerber displays a ransom page in both. HTML format, demanding that the victim pay a ransom in the cryptocurrency bitcoin. The ransom note is also delivered as an audio message. A special discount is offered if the user agrees to pay within a certain timeframe, after which the price of the ransom doubles:. Cerber authenticates a channel to Below are network details that are associated with Cerber activity:. Cerber then builds and establishes a listener service called dwebserver on port
