Cylance Offering Free Software to Bolster Election Security

Cybersecurity solutions provider Cylance today announced that it is offering free artificial intelligence-based antivirus software “to support all 2018 U.S. political campaigns” in the wake of pervasive election security concerns across the Federal government. “It is clear that malicious actors are ramping up their activity in advance of the midterms, and we know malevolent hackers will exploit any vulnerability at any level to undermine a candidate’s run for office,” said Cylance founder and CEO Stuart McClure. “It is our hope that the free offer to the public will particularly help people involved in political campaigns.” The company is offering free licenses of the software to any subscriber from now until November 9; licenses expire on November 30, 2018.
