SentinelOne and Okta Integration Accelerates Incident Response with XDR and Identity Security

SentinelOne | May 31, 2022

SentinelOne, an autonomous cybersecurity platform company, today announced SentinelOne XDR Response for Okta, enabling security teams to quickly respond to credential compromise and identity-based attacks. The integration of SentinelOne’s XDR platform with Okta’s identity management capabilities offers a powerful new solution to accelerate response and minimize enterprise risk. “Attackers exploit endpoint and identity security and access gaps. SentinelOne and Okta are leaders in securing both of these enterprise domains. “Incorporating SentinelOne Singularity XDR into the Okta identity platform improves the contextual awareness of our solution, ensuring that every identity is verified and malicious actors cannot advance laterally in pursuit of high-value targets. With SentinelOne across enterprise attack surfaces and Okta enforcing identity policies, organizations enjoy the best of both worlds in a single solution.” Stephen Lee, VP Technical Strategy & Partnerships, Okta According to the 2022 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report, 82% of breaches involved the human element including the use of stolen credentials. While there are existing solutions that secure various pieces of the enterprise they are often siloed, causing gaps in visibility and making it difficult to achieve a holistic understanding of an organization’s security posture. “Groupon is on a constant journey of modernization, adopting new and cutting-edge cloud technologies like SentinelOne Singularity XDR and Okta to best protect our employees and customers,” said Ryan Ogden, Director of Information Security, Groupon. “Consolidating context from various tools and automating response force multiplies our team to address the growing scale and speed of threats.” SentinelOne’s StorylineTM observes all concurrent processes across OSs and cloud workloads, providing rich context for any potential endpoint security incident. When a threat is detected, Singularity XDR informs Okta of the last logged-in user for that endpoint and Okta provides identity context from Okta data. By combining XDR and identity context, the joint solution helps security analysts quickly determine who is doing what on which device, significantly reducing the risk of endpoint or identity-based attacks. SentinelOne XDR Response for Okta provides a fully automated remediation process, alleviating the burden on the SOC team and allowing analysts to focus on higher-value tasks. Other key use cases include: Threat Enrichment - automatically enriches threats within Singularity XDR with recent login information via Okta to make security data actionable. User Suspension - terminates active sessions originating from compromised devices to minimize response time for prevention and remediation. Reset Password - forces password resets, preventing SSO-enabled lateral movement across corporate applications. Force Reauthentication - initiates a multi-factor authentication (MFA) workflow within Okta, locking the account until the user re-authenticates with a valid MFA token for identity verification. “Compromising identities and moving laterally to exploit an organization’s ‘crown jewels’ is the blueprint of modern attacks,” said Yonni Shelmerdine, Vice President of Product Management, SentinelOne. “Organizations need robust endpoint protection and visibility into user sessions to respond effectively to malicious activity. With SentinelOne and Okta, enterprises gain enterprise-grade context for effective security operations.” About SentinelOne SentinelOne’s cybersecurity solution encompasses AI-powered prevention, detection, response and hunting across endpoints, containers, cloud workloads, and IoT devices in a single autonomous XDR platform.

Noetic Cyber Delivers Platform Update to Bring Data Science into Cyber Asset Management

Noetic Cyber | June 06, 2022

Noetic Cyber, an innovator in Cybersecurity Asset Attack Surface Management (CAASM), today announced the availability of a new version of its Continuous Cyber Asset Management and Controls platform. The latest version of the Noetic platform is focused on delivering immediate time to value for security teams by identifying high priority security gaps and exploitable vulnerabilities, using innovative data science techniques. Since its public launch in July 2021, Noetic has been working with security leaders in the United States and the United Kingdom to help them reduce their growing attack surface and improve their cybersecurity posture. The challenge these cyber leaders often face is to understand cyber risk across complex environments, where assets can exist for a short period of time in public or private cloud platforms, as well as having to manage legacy on-premises workloads. To gain the insights needed to be effective, they need confidence in their data quality, full visibility across all assets and contextual intelligence to help prioritize decision making. "The continued innovation we are delivering reflects the expanding use cases we see across our customer base. "Security teams are putting cyber asset intelligence at the heart of their security programs and our ability to continuously adapt and respond to changing environments is critical to their success." Paul Ayers, CEO and co-founder, Noetic Cyber Delivering Immediate Time to Value Security teams need to know what assets they have, and understand which ones are creating the most cyber risk. Noetic is delivering innovative cyber asset intelligence to help customers assess their current cyber posture readiness and focus the security team's efforts on the highest priority activities. The Noetic platforms helps customers successfully do this with: External Cyber Asset Intelligence – Mapping industry data including CISA's Known Exploited Vulnerabilities catalog, MITRE ATT&CK® mitigations and others to provide greater context on asset risk and exposure. Coverage Gap dashboards –Helping security teams quickly identify common and easily resolved security coverage gaps. Support for ad-hoc security data – Many organizations keep important information on critical applications or security risks in spreadsheets. Noetic's new data ingestion capability supports importing ad-hoc data into the model. Simplifying and Extending Cyber Asset Management use cases The Noetic platform uses Graph database technology to map cyber relationships between assets. This innovative technology approach enables Noetic to navigate deep hierarchies and find hidden connections, providing the context to help security teams to make more informed decisions. The latest release of the Noetic platform builds on native Graph capabilities to deliver additional value such as: Understanding & improving data quality –Noetic's new data analytics feature automatically and continuously analyzes data for each different source for completeness and accuracy, providing a data quality score. Simplifying Graph queries – Noetic has adopted openCypher, a widely used open query language. Noetic has developed a graphical point-and-click UI to guide security analysts through the steps of creating powerful relationship-based queries with little or no training. Supporting Cloud and On-premises applications – Organizations need to protect assets across public and private clouds, as well as traditional on-premises networks. Noetic Outpost supports secure ingestion from behind the corporate firewall, and private clouds. "The challenge of identifying and managing assets in the context of cybersecurity has grown considerably in recent years," said Dr. Ed Amoroso, CEO of TAG Cyber. "Noetic's innovations are important as their ability to prioritize and automate helps security teams to focus on critical areas of cyber risk." About Noetic Cyber Noetic provides a proactive approach to cyber asset and controls management, empowering security teams to see, understand, fix and improve their security posture and enterprise ecosystem. Our goal is to improve security tools and control efficacy by breaking down existing siloes and improving the entire security ecosystem. Founded in 2019, Noetic is based in Boston and London.
