    Has anyone heard of a company called Cylance and their product PrivateDetect? Their web site is at http://www.cylance.com/index.shtml. I just saw them referenced in a post at the ESET forums. It looks like a fairly high end operation with a good team. I assume they are mostly focused on the corporate world, but I may throw their free product on my laptop and see how it does.

    I won't be trying it then, as I don't use and don't want to use social networking sites.

    Yeah, I always wonder about sites that require login with something like Facebook credentials. Why shut out some portion of a possible user base?

    Sign in using a dummy gmail account? (I always have a dummy account for everything :p). But still, I doubt I'm going to test it, looking at their support tickets, many users have problems about false positives.

    Cylance is another Security Startup that are popping up primarily in California or Northern Virginia. This one (for a change) wasn't started by a former NSA'er, but instead by the former Chief Tech Officer from Mcafee.

    They're trying to detect unknown malware and security breaches via predictive algorithmic modeling (their Infinity technology). Jury is still out to see if it will work.
