SentinelOne to Expand Cloud Security Capabilities with Acquisition of PingSafe

SentinelOne | January 05, 2024

SentinelOne (NYSE: S), a global leader in AI-powered security, today announced that it has agreed to acquire PingSafe. The acquisition of PingSafe’s cloud native application protection platform (CNAPP), when combined with SentinelOne’s cloud workload security and cloud data security capabilities, is expected to provide companies with a fully integrated platform that drives better coverage, hygiene and automation across their entire cloud footprint. The planned integration of PingSafe’s CNAPP into SentinelOne's Singularity™ Platform signifies a paradigm shift in cloud security. Rather than relying on point solutions or a standalone cloud security platform, companies can now access a unified, best-of-breed security platform complete with advanced, real-time, AI-powered security operations to protect the entire enterprise across endpoints, identities, and clouds. “With the addition of PingSafe, we intend to redefine cloud security by fusing best-of-breed cloud workload protection, AI and analytics capabilities with a modern and comprehensive CNAPP,” said Ric Smith, Chief Product and Technology Officer, SentinelOne. “This new approach to cloud security will eliminate the need for companies to navigate the complexity of multiple-point solutions, triage and investigate with incomplete context, or pipe data between disparate data silos. Instead, they can comprehensively manage their entire attack surface from a single platform that, unlike legacy CNAPP and standalone providers, delivers the full context, real-time interaction and analytics needed to correlate, detect and stop multi-stage attacks in a simple, automated way.” Transforming Cybersecurity SentinelOne has been steadily extending its cloud security capabilities beyond cloud workload security, and the acquisition of PingSafe will accelerate this strategy. The move also aligns with the Singularity Unity Release strategy SentinelOne announced in November to transform security operations centers. “SentinelOne is a pioneer and leader in AI-powered security, and we share a common mission to secure the cloud and make the Internet a safer place,” said Anand Prakash, founder and CEO of PingSafe and one of the world’s top five white hat hackers. “The combination of our cutting-edge CNAPP capabilities with SentinelOne’s market-leading AI security platform will supercharge cloud security by providing world-class protection for multi-cloud infrastructure, from development to deployment.” Leading Cloud Security with Enterprise-Wide AI and Analytics PingSafe is a robust CNAPP solution that delivers dynamic, real-time monitoring of multi-cloud workloads, simple setup and configuration and low false positive rates. And customers view it as superior to alternative solutions in the market. “With more than $100 billion in transactions flowing through our network, nothing is more important than ensuring the security of our environment,” said Ashwath Kumar, Principal Security Engineer at Razorpay, one of the largest payment processors in India. “With PingSafe, we can cut through the noise delivered by many CNAPP solutions to identify and prioritize the most critical threats and take an offensive approach to preventing them before they impact our business.” “We operate in a regulated but growing industry. It is an industry where one needs to adapt to change at lightning speed, and ensuring compliance in doing so is a key requirement,” said Prajal Kulkarni, CISO Groww. “We must be able to quickly identify, prioritize and respond to cloud misconfiguration seamlessly and correlate issues across our large cloud environment, and PingSafe provides us with a centralized dashboard that makes this easy and cost-effective to do.” With the acquisition of PingSafe, SentinelOne will offer differentiated capabilities such as advanced secrets scanning of runtime and build-time environments and an attack surface management rules engine that runs breach and attack simulation scenarios against Internet-exposed cloud assets to identify how an adversary could compromise those assets. These capabilities will be in addition to core CNAPP capabilities like cloud security posture management, Kubernetes security posture management, agentless vulnerability scanning, and shift-left Infrastructure as code scanning. “Combined with our Singularity Data Lake, Purple AI, endpoint security, and identity security capabilities, PingSafe will enable us to provide a compelling and cost-effective alternative to standalone CNAPP offerings unlike anything else in the market and a superior, more integrated user experience,” Smith said. About SentinelOne SentinelOne is a global leader in AI-powered security. SentinelOne’s Singularity™ Platform detects, prevents, and responds to cyber attacks at machine speed, empowering organizations to secure endpoints, cloud workloads, containers, identities, and mobile and network-connected devices with speed, accuracy and simplicity.

Deepwatch Announces New Forensic-Focused Operations Service To Enhance Cyber Resilience

Deepwatch | January 09, 2024

Deepwatch, the leading managed security platform for the cyber resilient enterprise, today announced the launch of Threat Signal, its standalone forensic-focused operations service. Deepwatch designed Threat Signal to enhance companies’ cybersecurity defenses, proactively identify and help mitigate attack vectors, and stay ahead of evolving risks to strengthen cyber resilience. Threat Signal provides protection beyond traditional security measures, finding advanced cyber threats that have bypassed existing controls by leveraging the latest attacker methodologies to stay in tune with the constantly evolving threat landscape. Using an “outside-in” methodology, Threat Signal evaluates an organization’s externally accessible presence from an attacker’s perspective to pinpoint and investigate risky systems and services. This informs the initial investigation and allows Deepwatch Experts to leverage advanced capabilities through organic intelligence, deep forensics, and threat hunting. According to Forrester’s “How to Make Threat Intelligence Actionable” report¹, “Over time, companies need to move beyond tactical use cases. Threat hunting can uncover threats that have bypassed traditional security tools, allowing companies to stop attacks earlier to minimize disruptions. As Forrester’s Threat Hunting 101 report describes, threat intelligence is vital because it provides insights into the TTPs of threat actors and details on how malware behaves. If time, expertise, and resources are constrained, consider leveraging an external service provider to conduct the threat-hunting exercise as an annual consulting engagement.” Threat Signal provides tailored and proactive security measures through customer-specific intelligence that takes an organization's unique attack surface, business risks, and the latest adversary intelligence or "threat cases" into account. Threat Signal’s additional features and capabilities include: Deepwatch Experts - Seasoned forensic security experts perform in-depth investigations, identifying threats before they disrupt an organization. Attack Surface Profiles - These profiles provide a customer actionable report, detailing external opportunity areas that an attacker could leverage against an organization, including high-risk opportunities, mitigation recommendations, and threat hunting leads. Forensic-Agent-Based Threat Hunting Engagements - Deepwatch’s specialists consistently engage in hunting activities to reveal concealed threats within a company’s infrastructure and provide a threat hunt summary report with detailed observations and any actions that the customer took during that hunt cycle. Reporting and Reviews - Deepwatch provides customers with reports, including: Weekly intelligence brief reports on analyzed open-source intelligence with Deepwatch recommendations. Summary presentations on the solution engagement status, including but not limited to hunting reports. Up to two executive reviews of the solution and observables per year. Ad-hoc awareness briefs of security advisories based on Deepwatch threat criteria. Annual intelligence reports on incident lessons learned and predictions. Malware Analysis - Deepwatch’s Adversary Tactics and Intelligence (ATI) team analyze collected malware and provide a report. Enhanced Security - Deepwatch’s MDR customers benefit from cross-collaborative security operations, harnessing advanced threat detection, and hyper-responsive capabilities. “As security professionals, we look to enhance a company’s security readiness. To do that, it’s critical for them to look beyond their existing security controls to ensure they are identifying and proactively protecting the business from external threats,” said Jerrod Barton, VP, Cyber Operations & Intelligence for Deepwatch. “With Threat Signal, we’re able to help our enterprise customers view their security readiness through the lens of the ‘attackers,’ ensuring that they can rapidly respond to any incoming threats, which in turn helps them elevate their cyber resilience.” About Deepwatch Deepwatch is the leading managed security platform for the cyber resilient enterprise. The Deepwatch Managed Security Platform and security experts provide enterprises with 24/7/365 cyber resilience, rapid detections, high fidelity alerts, reduced false positives, and automated actions. We operate as an extension of cybersecurity teams by delivering exceptional security expertise, visibility across your attack surface, precision response to threats, and a compelling return on your security investments.
