Endpoint security is vital for many businesses and large-scale enterprises. SentinelOne has paved the way as a modern approach to optimal endpoint protection. The advantages of a singularity platform allow for a seamless process for overseeing your precious data, control, access, and integration makes for a solid force multiplier that will enhance the integrity and security of your business. Here at RHYNO Networks, our team understands the importance of preserving the assets you’ve worked so hard to acquire and nourish. Platforms like SentinelOne take the guesswork out of strategizing for endpoint protection. Let’s take a closer look at its impact and how a dedicated IT consulting group can oversee its execution.

SentinelOne Certifications & Efficacy

If you couldn’t already tell- our IT consulting group is a big proponent of SentinelOne. But don’t only take our word, when it comes to the software’s success. Since its inception, SentinelOne has acquired an impressive set of accolades. The software is effective at properly managing data and analysts are constantly monitoring its impact.

The following is a list of achievements/recognition that SentinelOne has received, thus far:

  • Gartner Best Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) Solutions as reviewed by customers
  • SentinelOne was named a leader in the Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms
  • The MITRE Engenuity ATT&CK Carbanak and FIN7 has shown that SentinelOne leads all other cybersecurity vendors with 100% visibility, no missed detections, and didn’t need any configuration changes

Because the software streamlines many processes, analysts are able to focus on alerts that matter. 

Take a look at some of the certifications that SentinelOne has acquired:

  • The first and only next-gen cybersecurity solution to acquire VB100 certification from Virus Bulletin. The VB-100 certification is highly regarded in the malware and anti-virus communities.
  • Gartner Best Endpoint Protection Platforms (EPP) based on consumer reviews
  • Passmark did a performance test in 2019, that compares SentinelOne to other legacy AV products. The results revealed that it outperformed the other vendors when agents endure a heavier load.

How It Works

The platform will use patented technology to protect enterprises from cyber threats. The approach is considered multi-vector and includes a pre-execution, static AI technology that takes the place of antivirus applications. The software will also leverage behavioral AI technology that targets anomalous actions in real-time (fileless attacks, exploits, ransomware, and a host of other attacks). Solutions are delivered in milliseconds and will shut down attacks and reduce dwell time to almost zero. The features work to fully mitigate unwanted changes and can recover any lost data.

The Competition

When it comes to the competition, SentinelOne and Crowdstrike are two leaders in the EDR/EPP space. Given the recent findings, SentinelOne has held a comfortable edge over Crowdstrike, based on newer evaluations that have been conducted. SentinelOne has a lot to offer for coverage with operating systems like MacOS, Linux, and Windows. Additionally, SentinelOne is not dependent on involvement from human analysts or cloud connections, unlike Crowdstrike. Instead, it uses the features of an EDR agent that carries out analyses to protect endpoints from both known and unknown threats.

What Are SentinelOne Agents?

The SentinelOne agent is a dedicated software program that is deployed to each endpoint. This includes laptops, desktops, virtual environments, servers, etc. It will run autonomously on all of your devices, without depending on an internet connection. The agent will sit at a specific level and will monitor all of the progress in real-time. These processes are performed by a Dynamic Behavioral Tracking engine and will allow users to see what happened on an endpoint at every stage. In order to develop your endpoint security, security measures must be enforced with SentinelOne agents on every endpoint within your organization. Security teams are capable of overseeing alerts, targeting and eliminating threats, and applying certain policies for devices for the entire enterprise.

Endpoint Software Isn’t An Antivirus Software

It’s important to note that endpoint solutions are not antivirus. Antivirus programs are considered to be outdated by many businesses, as they only rely on malware file signatures. SentinelOne does not use traditional signatures from antivirus software, in order to identify malicious attacks. The software will instead use a medley of static machine learning analyses & dynamic behavioral analyses for protecting systems. All files will be evaluated before they are put in motion. Since the technology doesn’t use signatures, customers don’t need to be concerned with network-heavy updates or hefty disk scans.
