Partnership Accelerates Market Transition Away From Legacy Antivirus to Bring Endpoint Security Into 21st Century
LONDON, May 26, 2016 – SentinelOne, the company that’s transforming endpoint security by delivering real-time protection powered by machine learning and intelligent automation, is today announcing its expansion into Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) through a strategic partnership with leading security distributor Exclusive Networks. SentinelOne and Exclusive Networks will partner to initially bring Next-Generation Endpoint Protection to the EMEA region.
The companies’ joint mission is to replace the ‘Old Guard’ of legacy antivirus software and provide organizations in these markets with a unique, standalone approach to endpoint security that combines behavioral-based detection of both known and unknown threats, with automated mitigation and forensic tools to defeat attacks that employ a combination of advanced techniques within malware, exploits, or insecure scripts.
“Bringing our solution to these key European markets is a significant step toward changing the face of endpoint protection on a global scale,” said SentinelOne CEO and co-founder Tomer Weingarten. “We’re fortunate to have Exclusive Networks alongside for this effort, as they have already proven their ability for bringing disruptive cybersecurity technologies to the region.”
Barrie Desmond, COO at Exclusive Group adds, “Every so often there is a cybersecurity technology that takes a wrecking ball to established, and some may say complacent, markets by jumping to a new innovation curve and addressing unfulfilled customer needs that leave competitors behind.” He adds, “SentinelOne is doing away with the antivirus status quo by simplifying endpoint security in a unique way and making it truly fit-for-purpose in the ongoing battle against advanced threats and zero day attacks. Traditional antivirus products are continuing to fail millions of enterprise customers. We’re thrilled to be partnering with a true innovator that is positioned to disrupt a market that has fallen asleep at the wheel.”
SentinelOne’s Next-Generation Endpoint Protection technology has earned praise from multiple directions; with industry analyst firm Gartner recently nominating them as a ‘Visionary’ vendor in the latest Endpoint Protection Platform Magic Quadrant. Their technology and vision has already earned them $40 million of VC funding and ringing endorsements from companies like Netflix, who have replaced their entire installed base of legacy endpoints with SentinelOne solutions.
