SentinelOne Named a Visionary for Second Straight Year in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms
Company Placed Furthest in “Completeness of Vision”
PALO ALTO, Calif.—Feb. 1, 2017—SentinelOne, the company transforming endpoint security by delivering real-time protection powered by machine learning and dynamic behavior analysis, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Visionary quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms (EPP) for the second straight year.*
SentinelOne’s Endpoint Protection Platform (EPP) unifies endpoint threat prevention, detection and response in a single platform driven by sophisticated machine learning and intelligent automation. With SentinelOne, organizations can detect malicious behavior across multiple vectors, rapidly eliminate threats with fully-automated, integrated response capabilities, and adapt their defenses against the most advanced cyber attacks.
“We have long held a culture of innovation within SentinelOne and are thrilled to be recognized for that commitment and record of execution towards a disruptive vision,” said Tomer Weingarten, CEO of SentinelOne. “Our vision from day one has been based on the belief that this problem can only be solved through a multi-layered approach that combines behavior and static-based detection into a single integrated solution. This is the only way to protect against attacks that are rapidly evolving towards a multi-vector approach that combine file and file-less malware with other advanced techniques such as the use of scripting languages. In doing so we’ve positioned SentinelOne to be a true replacement for antivirus solutions, not simply another tool to augment antivirus’ weaknesses.
“We are truly honored to be recognized as a visionary in this year’s Gartner Magic Quadrant, and we will continue to work with organizations around the globe that are actively seeking strong solutions to help combat today’s sophisticated attacks,” continued Weingarten.
This latest news comes one week after the company announced it has secured an additional $70 million (USD) in a Series C round led by Redpoint Ventures, bringing total investment in SentinelOne to more than $110 million.
