END POINT PROTECTION

SentinelOne and Mimecast have teamed up to provide better end-to-end threat protection for corporate devices and email

SentinelOne | February 07, 2022

SentinelOne, an independent cybersecurity platform firm, announced a new integrated solution with Mimecast to increase end-to-end threat prevention, speed incident response, and reduce security team delays. SentinelOne and Mimecast allow security teams to take advantage of cooperative defenses and quickly respond to attacks across email and endpoints using XDR automation for a holistic approach to incident response. Security operations teams are stretched to the limit investigating and remediating each incident as tactics change, threat actors' sophistication grows, and new vulnerabilities are discovered regularly. Email continues to be one of the most widely used attack channels. According to Mimecast's State of Email Security report for 2021, risks have increased by 64% during the pandemic, and 70% of businesses expect to be impacted by an email-borne attack. As a result, organizations are looking for integrated defenses to safeguard email and improve incident response capabilities while reducing complexity, minimizing risk, and relieving pressure on an already overworked security team. “Email inboxes are often a prime vector for attacking the enterprise. Mimecast detects new threats through our multi-layered inspection capabilities, helping security operations teams who are still spending too much time on the manual collection, normalization, and prioritization of data,” said Julian Martin, VP Ecosystem & Alliances, Mimecast. “Our integration with SentinelOne solves for this challenge, improving and accelerating the incident response capabilities we offer our customers. As the cyber threat landscape continues to expand, detecting and responding to these threats in real-time is crucial for an organization’s security infrastructure,It’s important to leverage trusted security platforms like those offered by SentinelOne and Mimecast to help identify and mitigate the risk of cyberattacks.” Ahmed Shah, Senior Vice President of Strategic Alliances, Optiv The integrated solution from SentinelOne and Mimecast strengthens and accelerates incident response capabilities across all security layers, including email, endpoints, and the cloud. For example, when a threat is detected in SentinelOne, the integration takes automatic measures like suspending a particular user's email, blocking that user's email, or quarantining the email account. “The speed and sophistication with which adversaries are attacking organizations has become staggering, and too often SOC teams are burdened with investigating security issues as opposed to solving them,” said Yonni Shelmerdine, VP Product Management, SentinelOne. “The integrated solution enables our customers to accelerate incident response and contain threats faster by automatically quarantining affected users in Mimecast. This ultimately reduces complexity, minimizes risk, and decreases the demands on SOC teams.” With XDR automation, Mimecast and SentinelOne's combined solution provides never-before-seen holistic protection across client email and endpoints, dramatically increasing end-to-end threat detection and incident response.
