SentinelOne | January 15, 2022
SentinelOne an autonomous cybersecurity platform company, today announced integrations with Remediant, Blue Hexagon, Keysight, and Automox, expanding the set of capabilities available via SentinelOne’s Singularity Marketplace. With comprehensive integrations across enterprise use cases, the Singularity Marketplace enables customers to unify leading technologies to autonomously protect against threats at machine speed.
Enable Zero Trust with Remediant
SentinelOne’s joint solution with Remediant enables organizations to enforce Zero Trust solutions across cloud, hybrid, and on-premises infrastructure with a single agent. With the rise of credential stuffing attacks and ransomware, endpoints and identities are two of the most exploited attack vectors today. SentinelOne captures behavioral telemetry across user endpoints, cloud workloads and IoT, feeding process and file activities to Remediant. This enables administrators, auditors, and incident responders to identify malicious sessions and activity in a single workflow.
“This partnership with SentinelOne marks one of the first, and best, examples of what becomes possible when leading identity and endpoint security solution providers align their capabilities,” said Paul Lanzi, Co-founder, Remediant. “As partners, we are both aware that today's remote workforce has to be secured by a new generation of tools that secure endpoints and privileged access. We're launching this partnership because EDR and identity vendors working together is one of the most powerful things we can do for our customers to ensure they can defend against attacks."
Strengthens Cloud Ransomware Security with Blue Hexagon
SentinelOne’s integration with Blue Hexagon enables the rapid detection and prevention of malware and ransomware in the cloud. As the first line of defense, SentinelOne secures endpoints, cloud workloads and IoT devices with AI powered protection, detection and response. The integration shares Blue Hexagon’s awareness of malware and ransomware reducing the time to respond through automated remediation. In addition, cloud misconfigurations are shared with SentinelOne.
“We are excited to partner with SentinelOne, a leader in XDR, to provide a threat detection and response solution that unifies endpoint, cloud, and network security.With Singularity XDR and Blue Hexagon, joint customers can use leading solutions to seamlessly share ransomware intelligence and automate response across cloud environments.”
Nayeem Islam, CEO and Cofounder, Blue Hexagon
Proactive Threat Simulation with Keysight
SentinelOne’s integration with Keysight allows joint customers to safely simulate threats in order to validate threat detection and remediation. Keysight’s Threat Simulator attacks both network and endpoints from a ‘Dark Web’ environment. Attacks are validated against Singularity XDR’s protection and detection models using SentinelOne’s rich API functionality, identifying gaps in the cyber kill chain and suggesting updates to organizational security infrastructure.
“The integration of Keysight Threat Simulator with SentinelOne is exciting because it allows our joint customers to automate validation of their security processes and defenses before actual threats occur,” said Greg Copeland, Director of Technical Alliances, Keysight. “Cyber defense groups can test and train their operations teams using realistic scenarios, to sharpen their skills and procedures proactively.”
Automate Vulnerability Management with Automox
SentinelOne and Automox’s joint solution delivers end-to-end vulnerability discovery and remediation. As corporate networks become more technically diverse, organizations often struggle to keep up with patch management and cyber hygiene, forcing security teams to adopt multiple tools that require heavy training, dedicated on-site resources, and multiple dashboards. SentinelOne and Automox provide the visibility and workflows needed to significantly reduce the time to remediation and the burden on in-house resources.
“As corporate IT environments become more distributed and overwhelmed with multiple operating systems and a vast inventory of third-party software, organizations are left wide open to cyber attacks,” said Jay Prassl, founder and CEO at Automox. “SentinelOne mirrors our mission to proactively reduce security exposure. Through our partnership, enterprise and government organizations benefit from a powerful, cloud-enabled solution to detect and remediate vulnerabilities, seamlessly and at scale.”
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.

Confluera | February 19, 2022
Confluera, the leading provider of next-generation cloud cyber attack detection and response, today released the findings of their latest research report, which explores how IT leaders detect, evaluate, and act against cybersecurity threats in today's cloud environment. The study, 2022 Cloud Cybersecurity Survey Report, showcases the perspective of 200 U.S. IT leaders at medium to large sized organizations and how they are tackling the increasingly complex remote, cloud-centric IT security landscape.
The majority of organizations are accelerating their cloud adoption with 97% of IT leaders surveyed stating that their strategy includes the expansion of cloud deployments. The strategy includes expansion in scale and in many cases, the adoption of multiple platforms such as AWS, Google Cloud and Azure. This strategy is not without its challenges, however. Approximately, 63% of IT professionals identified cyberthreats designed to target cloud services as the top obstacle to their cloud strategy.
Cloud and multi-cloud adoption has greatly increased the workload of already burdened IT teams. Of the 200 IT leaders surveyed, only about half of the respondents said that they are adequately staffed to manage the frequency of alerts they receive. IT teams spend 54% of their time investigating security alerts, with over half of those alerts turning out to be false or benign alarms. As threats within the cloud proliferate, IT leaders are looking for solutions to help them quickly separate the signal from the noise so they can act on the real threats promptly. Some key findings of the survey as it relates to cloud deployments are below.
More than 65% of IT leaders said cloud IaaS adoption (AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, etc.) was the primary contributor to their increased workload in 2021
When asked what challenges were associated with adopting multiple cloud platforms,
69% said maintaining consistent cybersecurity coverage across all cloud infrastructures
Nearly 50% said securing the resources to manage different cloud infrastructures
Nearly 45% identified the difficulty detecting threats progressing from one cloud infrastructure to another
"While accelerated cloud adoption continues to be a critical element in adapting to the new way of doing business, it has strained IT leader's ability to manage their workload, Organizations need to ensure proper people, processes, and tools are in place for the team to expand the complex cloud environments without sacrificing their attention to security."
John Morgan, CEO of Confluera
Morgan continued, "To make matters worse, the Great Resignation has demonstrated the burnout that workers across the U.S. economy are feeling, and nowhere is this burnout more obvious than in the cybersecurity teams. Organizations must ensure frequent conversations between executives and cybersecurity managers to ensure they are well equipped to adequately manage alerts, maintain systems, and avoid burnout within their teams.
Other key findings include the following:
85% of IT leaders said that they experienced increased workload due to shift in work model including remote workers
Nearly 70% of IT leaders said that the change in work model has made it more difficult to keep company resources secure
Nearly 59% of all alert investigations turn out to be false alarms or benign activities
90% of IT leaders said they create threat storyboards but close to 60% rely on third-party services to create storyboards after the incident
Not all findings in the report were so glum, however. In a positive sign, 84% of IT leaders were optimistic about their cybersecurity readiness for 2022. The majority of respondents note the availability of new cybersecurity tools as the reason for their positive outlook, with 59% saying that a Detection and Response solution for the cloud, or CxDR, is the innovation they are most excited about for future deployment.
"2021 was a tough year for many IT leaders, but the market is now providing organizations with the tools they need to effectively manage the infrastructures they have and even expand them further," added Morgan. "Given proper resources and effective communication, IT leaders have every right to be positive as we move into the new year."
About the Study
Confluera commissioned an independent research firm to survey U.S. IT leaders using a national network of verified panel providers. A total of 200 respondents completed the survey, which was conducted between December 3-7, 2021. Those surveyed included those with senior titles, including Manager, Director, and VP/C-level. The margin of error for this study is +/-5.9% at the 95% confidence level.
