Staff Software Engineer at Cylance (Austin, TX)


At the heart of Cylance Product Development is an artificial intelligence-based threat detection system. Unlike traditional approaches, Cylance does not rely solely on signatures or even pre-determined behaviors to determine if something is known to be good or bad. Instead, we have developed a mathematical approach to identifying advanced threats. This intelligent system evolves in real-time as new threats emerge, providing continuous detection.
