In 3 bullets, summarize why this company is different from the competition and deserves recognition:
In a cybersecurity landscape where consumers are increasingly looking to companies for proof that their data is protected, SentinelOne customers have especially expressed enthusiasm for the ransomware guarantee program as it heightens confidence that customer and company information is safe from the thieving hands of ransomware.
Given the current security industry talent gap, companies are looking to automated solutions to comprehensively protect their networks without requiring additional manpower. While traditional AV and endpoint protection services require manual updates in order to block new threats, SentinelOne’s machine learning and automated intelligence automatically detects advanced malicious behavior from increasingly sophisticated attack vectors.
SentinelOne’s Endpoint Protection Platform (EPP) unifies prevention, detection and response in a single platform. Customers get all the critical next-generation endpoint protection capabilities without having to resort to a multi-solution approach that involves higher overall software costs, multiple endpoint agents and high risk of interoperability issues, and a heavier management burden for IT staff. Mark Patterson, CIO of SM Wilson said, “SentinelOne didn’t add any complexity to our lives, and it absolutely helps us keep our people and our customers safe. We’ve had zero downtime due to attacks since we put in SentinelOne.”
In less than 300 words, summarize the achievements of the company in the nominated category
Companies are starting to realize that AV cannot catch all cyber attacks and often only catches binary-based attacks, which only account for 50 percent of incoming malware. As a result, Fortune 500 companies, such as Netflix, have discarded their traditional AV systems in favor of SentinelOne’s Endpoint Protection Platform, which has transformed the way security teams prevent malware, exploit and script-based attacks by using high-precision machine learning and intelligent automation.
Furthermore, SentinelOne has continued to become a trailblazer in the industry by offering customers meaningful assurance that customers will be safe from cyber threats with the launch of the ransomware guarantee program. Customers are now secured against financial implications of a ransomware attack with support from SentinelOne of $1,000 per endpoint, or up to $1 million per company if the customer suffers a ransomware attack that SentinelOne should have detected and prevented.
A recent proof point of SentinelOne’s guarantee came in the wake of the recent WannaCry ransomware attacks, which ravaged the networks of over 200,000 organizations worldwide. Any customer employing SentinelOne’s next-gen technology was protected against this attack; no product update was needed, and zero claims were received on its guarantee.
This guarantee shows the company’s leadership in enterprise customer service, making it one of the first security companies to hold its services financially accountable for protecting customer systems.The program’s dedication to transparency and accountability has led to customer growth and industry recognition, including Black Hat and RSA keynotes by Jeremiah Grossman, Chief of Cybersecurity Strategy.
