SentinelOne: Disrupting Endpoint Security Market with Artificial Intelligence

SentinelOne: Disrupting Endpoint Security Market with Artificial Intelligence

In order to securely move into the digital age, without putting critical assets at risk, organizations can no longer afford to rely on signature-based approaches that only defend against known threats. There are a lot of endpoints to secure and a lot more new threats to identify for organizations today. From laptops to cars and wind turbines, everything is connected to the internet thanks to technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT), cloud and more.

With an expanding and fractured perimeter that traditional defenses can no longer manage or monitor, SentinelOne is at the forefront of the cybersecurity fight. The company works with both public and private entities and is committed to providing the best security technology available.

SentinelOne Is Disrupting Endpoint Security Market with Behavioral AI models

When it comes to next-generation cybersecurity, traditional on-premise signature database protection models are ineffective and lack administrator visibility.

Most traditional and next-gen approaches only rely on scanning files to detect attacks, which makes them extremely vulnerable to new attack techniques. The shortcomings of other products are especially relevant to today’s live and file-less attacks. The on-agent AI detection engines allow SentinelOne to autonomously detect and respond to malicious behavior immediately, offering machine speed responses such as on-agent remediation and rollback.

In order to adequately defend the business and adopt cloud, containers, IoT and more, organizations need dynamic artificial intelligence-driven (AI) next-generation endpoint protection platforms that defend every endpoint against all types of attacks, at every stage in the threat lifecycle without the need for human intervention.

Converging threat prevention, detection, response, and hunting into a proprietary single-agent architecture, SentinelOne is the first to take AI-based device protection from the cloud to the edge. It covers IoT endpoints and workloads in the cloud with a completely autonomous solution. It's Behavioral AI model allows organizations to gain an understanding of “normal,” and use that as a baseline against which to compare all activity and automatically identify as well as remediate malicious behavior.

AI in Cybersecurity Improves Security and Talent Shortage Issues

The vast majority of companies today have more potentially vulnerable endpoints than they can realistically monitor or manage, owing to various reasons ranging from lack of qualified staff to expensive security programs or policies.

While estimates vary, it’s well established that organizations are struggling to find and retain the talent needed to defend themselves. The skills gap is getting wider as organizations adopt more complex technologies and expand the threat surface. This is where AI comes into play.

Cybersecurity provides an excellent forum for applying AI. Well-trained and constantly learning models are far more predictive and effective than humans or legacy methods, such as individual signatures or heuristic rules that require updates multiple times per day.

SentinelOne has zero reliance on humans and does not need cloud connectivity to deploy and operate the solution. The company is the only cybersecurity platform that protects every endpoint in the enterprise regardless of its physical location, and across any cloud environment (public, private or hybrid).

Designed for extreme ease of use, the S1 platform saves customers time by applying AI to automatically eliminate threats in real-time for both on-premise and cloud environments, and is the only solution to provide full visibility across networks directly from the endpoint.

Over 90% of the company’s deals are complete legacy AV rip and replace. Customers are eager to move away from traditional AV solutions and many of the next-gen solutions are only able to augment versus a replace. This has helped the company to experience over 70% proof of concept win rates across all next-generation and legacy AV vendors, on a global scale,” notes Tomer Weingarten, CEO, and Co-Founder, SentinelOne.

SentinelOne Provides All Organizations Enterprise-Level Capabilities to Curb Cyber Threats

SentinelOne gives organizations the tools organizations need to confidently adopt new technology, with their digital transformation journey and refusing to let security worries derail IT modernization initiatives.

With SentinelOne, what once took a trained and tenured SOC analyst is now solved with applied AI. This allows businesses of all sizes to leverage capabilities that were once available only to the world’s most advanced and largest enterprises - or capabilities that were never available before.

In large enterprise environments, highly trained analysts are now able to focus on investigation and response of mission-critical attacks instead of wasting time researching and linking individual events. SentinelOne is the only the next-generation solution that autonomously defends every endpoint against every type of attack, at every stage in the threat lifecycle, purely using AI.

AI-Based Protection from Cloud to Edge with SentinelOne

Endpoints are everywhere, from classic laptops and desktops to workloads in the cloud and the data center, and all IoT devices – the network edge, including the cloud, is the real perimeter.

Almog Cohen, CTO, and Co-Founder, SentinelOne, says: “By 2030 there will be more than 125 billion connected IoT devices, many with little or no built-in security capabilities. These many unmanaged and unmonitored assets make organizations of all shapes and sizes nervous and concerned that the risks associated with cloud computing and IoT will eventually outweigh the operational benefits.”

SentinelOne was established with the goal of developing a dramatic new approach to endpoint protection. SentinelOne applies AI and machine learning to thwart both the known and unknown attack vectors threatening organizations today.

The SentinelOne platform provides organizations with the visibility and protection they need from the endpoint to the cloud. The company delivers autonomous endpoint protection through a single agent that successfully prevents, detects, responds, and hunts attacks across all major vectors.

SentinelOne Helps McKesson Corporation to Remediate Threats and Defend Against Advanced Attacks

Ranked 7th on the Fortune 500, McKesson Corporation is a global leader in healthcare supply chain management solutions, retail pharmacy, community oncology and specialty care, and healthcare information technology. The company was looking for a next-generation antivirus solution powered by AI to replace its legacy antivirus after becoming frustrated that their existing solution couldn’t keep up with the modern threat landscape.

As a global corporation, McKesson was constantly challenged with monitoring and protecting every edge of their network, from the endpoint to the cloud, which is why McKesson decided to replace its legacy solution, McAfee, with SentinelOne. With SentinelOne’s ActiveEDR, McKesson’s SOC team can automatically remediate threats and defend against advanced attacks. SentinelOne helps McKesson prevent attacks as well as quickly understand the story and root cause behind threat actors and autonomously respond, without any reliance on cloud resources.

According to Siobhan Smyth, SVP, Global CISO at McKesson, “McKesson selected SentinelOne for the endpoint security solution they provide today, as well as their vision and roadmap. SentinelOne was a great partner throughout the implementation, not just during the sales process. Their support-to-date, and their continuing journey to achieve the vision they articulated, reinforce our decision to partner with SentinelOne.”
