IRVINE, CALIFORNIA, November 10, 2015—Cylance, the company that is revolutionizing cybersecurity with products and services that use artificial intelligence to proactively prevent, rather than just reactively detect advanced persistent threats and malware, today announced a partnership with Inspire Sports, LLC to establish a new U.S. registered UCI Women’s team, the Cylance Pro Cycling Team.

Additional corporate and bicycle-industry partners supporting the Cylance Pro Cycling Team will be announced at a future date.
The Cylance-Inspire partnership will also enable the dedicated athletes on the team to focus on the 2016 Olympics by providing them the training, competition opportunities and a range of additional resources needed to pursue their dreams of representing their countries on the world stage.

Our partnership with Cylance will help these talented riders reach that goal.”
“Professional cycling and cybersecurity both combine science, art, strength and strategy to overcome complex challenges and achieve success,” said Stuart McClure, CEO of Cylance. “The dedication, discipline, perseverance, and drive to win of the Cylance Pro Cycling team members are a perfect reflection of the Cylance culture and we are proud that they will each wear the Cylance jersey.”
