Schneider Electric partners with Cylance

Schneider Electric Software will work closely with Cylance to increase its security levels for customers leveraging the industrial software platform for engineering, planning and operations, asset performance and monitoring, and control across its industrial and infrastructure operations.

“We take security seriously and so we have invested considerable time and effort in identifying how to deliver ever-increasing security standards for our software solutions,” said Andrew McCloskey, Vice President, Software Product Development at Schneider Electric. “This partnership enables us to stay at the forefront of protection against cyber-attacks, which will then be shared with our partners to minimise the potential for a security compromise by our customers.”

This agreement involves placing Cylance’s artificial intelligence and machine learning security capabilities within the industrial software platform, driving innovation across industrial and infrastructure operations.

“We are pleased to have been chosen by Schneider Electric, a recognised leader in software development,” said Daniel Doimo, President and COO at Cylance. “Not only can we help drive greater security standards for Schneider Electric customers, but together we can help drive security innovation and prevent cyber attacks from occurring, rather than reacting to breaches after they’ve already caused damage.”
