Razberi Technologies and Cylance Inc. have signed an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) agreement to embed CylancePROTECT software in Razberi ServerSwitchIQ appliances. CylancePROTECT will be integral to the new Razberi CameraDefense solution that, combined with Razberi’s secure appliance architecture, provides comprehensive protection over the server, video management systems (VMS), and camera ecosystem.

Leveraging artificial intelligence

“The physical and network security worlds continue to converge, putting video surveillance systems and any attached networks at risk from unprotected endpoints,” said Tom Galvin, Razberi CEO. CylancePROTECT is ideal for the Razberi distributed architecture, enabling us to offer our customers the most advanced system for anti-virus protection.”

CylancePROTECT leverages artificial intelligence to detect and prevent malware from executing on endpoints in real time. By taking a mathematical approach to malware identification using patent-pending, machine learning techniques instead of reactive signatures and sandboxes, CylancePROTECT renders new malware, viruses, bots, and unknown future variants useless.

Because it uses very little memory and less than one percent of CPU, CylancePROTECT will not disrupt the video management systems running on Razberi ServerSwitchIQ appliances. In addition, with no Internet connection or signature updates required, the product protects even remote endpoints connected to the Razberi system.

AI-based endpoint security

“Cylance is thrilled to partner with Razberi to create the first secure video surveillance systems by embedding CylancePROTECT into Razberi’s proprietary CameraDefense technology,” said Craig Whetstone, Director of OEM at Cylance. “AI-based endpoint security is a great fit for operational technologies such as Razberi's intelligent surveillance appliances where availability and video processing performance are priorities.”

Razberi has worked with Cylance to test compatibility with the Razberi appliances and certified VMS partners. CylancePROTECT and Razberi CameraDefense will be available for all Razberi ServerSwitchIQ appliances by the end of the second quarter.
