What is SentinelOne?

November 9, 2021 Claranet Limited

SentinelOne's Singularity Platform is a unified, AI-powered XDR platform that uses data from Mac, PC and Linux endpoints, IoT systems and cloud workloads to analyse security threats, manage vulnerabilities, spot threats, protect endpoints and support IT operations, including security response and analysis.

The world doesn't need another doom-laden survey of cybersecurity threats. But every business needs reliable protection against them. 

Attackers don't care where your data lives - on servers, in the cloud, or on people's computers, tablets and phones - they will go after it everywhere. That's why companies need joined-up systems that work:

  • Across the network.

  • With Windows, Linux and Mac systems.

  • Both on-premise and in the cloud.

  • And with modern micro-services architectures such as Docker and Kubernetes.

Used by global brands like Samsung, Estée Lauder, Aston Martin and EA, SentinelOne is like a panopticon that continuously monitors and protects your entire IT estate.

Integrated, end-to-end security

The SentinelOne platform brings together systems that are often disjointed and poorly integrated:

  • Prevention - AI-powered endpoint detection of malware and ransomware. Indeed, SentinelOne is a 2021 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms Leader.

  • ActiveEDR -  Proactive, real-time endpoint detection and response (EDR).

  • Internet of Things (IoT) - total visibility of the devices connected to your network and detection of rogue devices.

  • Cloud workloads - Complete protection, visibility and control of your cloud workloads.

By joining everything up, SentinelOne gets a broader view of what's going on in your infrastructure. It captures, normalises and correlates data from your users' devices, your network, cloud workloads and firewalls to drive automated responses and provide deep insight for IT and security teams.

As a result, the average time to remediation is 18 minutes using 1-click remediation and rollback using SentinelOne's Storyline technology.

The integration also reduces work for the IT team because there is just one agent to deploy, one system to learn and one pane of glass to manage everything.

Bringing AI to XDR (Extended Detection and Response)

SentinelOne collects data from multiple sources, including email, endpoints, cloud servers and your network, and then automatically analyses threats for faster response times and improved security. Advanced AI-powered features include:

  • AI embedded in every endpoint and workload for increased autonomy and real-time, on-demand remediation.

  • Automated responses to reduce IT team workload and close vulnerability windows faster.

  • Block and remediate advanced attacks at machine speed with cross-platform, enterprise-scale data analytics.

  • Storyline technology that gives analysts detailed insight into events leading up to an attack and the ability to correlate cause and effect.
