SentinelOne: The Benefits of Advanced Cyber Security

Easily detect, investigate and remediate advanced security breaches with SentinelOne.

With increasing digitalisation, cyberattacks put not only an organisation’s systems at risk but also the organisation itself and its customers. Constant attacks and scams define the era we’re living in, and the technologies and techniques criminals are using are improving. Enterprise security teams and security operations centres (SOCs) face multiple challenges when attempting to detect, investigate and remediate advanced attacks.

The cybercrime statistics are bone-chilling. The average number of cyberattacks and data breaches in 2021 increased by more than 15% over 2020. For 2021, experts consider ransomware to be 57 times more destructive than in 2015. We are seeing a rise in the types of attacks as nations and criminals grow more sophisticated. This includes commercialised cybercrime such as Phishing as a Service (PhaaS) and Ransomware as a Service (RaaS). Cybercrime has escalated during Covid-19, and we expect it to total around $10.5 trillion in costs globally each year by 2025 – a significant portion of global GDP.

The fastest-growing types of malware circumvent traditional antivirus and anti-malware because they don’t contain the files these programmes typically look for. Instead, they send dangerous code to legitimate system processes, leaving no typical trace the way ransomware, spyware and viruses do. They are hard to defend against. What is more, their footprints are often in memory, which can be cleared as soon as a process ends. Attacks allow hackers into a system to steal information and customer data and perpetrate other insider attacks.

The average number of breaches per week and the times needed to resolve each attack are increasing. The financial and time costs of attacks on individuals, SMEs, and larger companies are staggering. This is leading to increased spending on cybersecurity. In the war against cyber threats, we need to act faster and smarter than what’s possible with human-powered technology. Security-driven AI has the best cost mitigation, saving customers up to 80%. SentinelOne is autonomous cybersecurity built for what’s next. Our platform delivers the defences you need to prevent, detect and undo known and unknown threats.

You can protect your network with SentinelOne ActiveEDR. SentinelOne is an advanced endpoint detection and response (EDR) and threat-hunting solution. It delivers real-time visibility with contextualised, correlated insights that accelerate triaging and root cause analysis. SentinelOne lightens the security team’s burden through automated threat resolution, dramatically reducing the mean time to remediate (MTTR) an incident. ActiveEDR also enables proactive hunting to uncover stealthy, sophisticated threats that lurk in the environment.

Detect high-velocity threats with Storyline

Powered by our Storyline technology, ActiveEDR provides analysts with real-time, actionable correlation and context. It lets security analysts understand the full story of what happened in their environment, demonstrating how a threat moves through the organisation. Storyline automatically links all related events and activities together in an attack storyline with a unique identifier. This allows a security team to see the full context of what happened in seconds rather than having to spend hours, days or weeks manually correlating logs and linking events.

An AI-based behavioural engine

Unlike legacy antivirus, which relies on a database of known threats (that needs to be online to update itself), SentinelOne works offline thanks to its built-in AI capabilities. Thus, it can identify file and fileless attacks (not just code threats but also behavioural ones). Our behavioural engine tracks all activities on the system. It detects techniques and tactics that indicate malicious behaviour to monitor stealthy behaviour, effectively identifying fileless attacks, lateral movement, and actively executing root-kits. SentinelOne empowers hunting teams to easily uncover and stop advanced hidden attacks with a single management interface to monitor all metrics. By providing campaign-level insights, we vastly reduce the manual effort needed, help with alert fatigue and stress, and significantly lower the skills required to respond to alerts.

Remediate entire attacks with patented one-click remediation and roll-back

SentinelOne enables analysts to take all the required actions to respond and remediate a threat with a single click. In so doing executing a full suite of remediation actions. For instance network quarantine or killing a process to remove persistence mechanisms. Roll-back functionality automatically restores deleted or corrupted files caused by ransomware activity to their pre-infected state. All without needing to re-image the machine. WHat’s more, SentinelOne gives your security team a quick way to investigate attacks, collect forensic data, and remediate breaches. No matter where the compromised endpoints are located or their connectivity. This eliminates uncertainty and significantly reduces any downtime after an attack.

With STAR, you can write rules and workflows to deal with repetitive threats.

Storyline Active-Response (STAR) allows for rules and workflows specific to your environment to be written to deal with repetitive threats (i.e. if this occurs, then do that). Modern adversaries are automating their techniques, tactics and procedures to evade preventative defences. For this reason, it makes sense for your security team to keep up with attacks by automating your manual workloads. By enabling you to incorporate your business context, you can turn Deep Visibility queries into automated hunting rules that trigger alerts and responses when rules detect matches.

There’s more. The SentinelOne offering also includes the following:

  • Best-in-industry coverage across Windows, Mac OS and Linux.
  • Detect high-velocity threats
  • Accelerate investigations with seamlessly integrated MITRE ATT&CK techniques
  • Investigate historical data with affordable extended data retention (our typical data retention is 365 days, while the typical data retention is 90 days)
  • Upload executables to the cloud for automated analysis workflows with Binary Vault
  • Stream telemetry locally to automate security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) workflows with Cloud Funnel
  • Hands-on support and training.

Every year, we have proven our superior ability to make security teams’ lives easier without misses, delays or constant configuration tweaks. Our customers range from small IT shops to leading Fortune 10 enterprises, including four from the Fortune 10 and hundreds of the global 2000. We are recognised by authorities such as Gartner, and we consistently lead in testing and evaluations conducted by firms such as MITRE Engenuity and SE Labs.

SentinelOne is pioneering cybersecurity with autonomous, distributed endpoint intelligence that simplifies the security stack without forgoing enterprise capabilities. Our technology is designed to scale people with automation and frictionless threat resolution. You can equip every endpoint and workload to respond intelligently against threats to your security and information. SentinelOne is everything autonomous cybersecurity should be. One platform; many reasons to believe. Are you ready?
