“Being recognized as a finalist for Best Emerging Technology by the SC Awards is a major honor and powerful validation for our next generation approach to endpoint protection,” said Tomer Weingarten, CEO SentinelOne. “The fact that the SentinelOne Endpoint Protection Platform has been certified by the AV-TEST Institute to replace antivirus solutions enables companies to deploy a single product, instead of two or more, to secure all their devices against zero-day and known threats.”
The need for effective endpoint protection has never been greater. Endpoints represent a broad swath of computing devices - including laptops, desktops, servers, mobile devices, embedded devices, SCADA systems, and even IoT devices. These endpoints connect and access data, literally from anywhere, and they are the weakest link into the enterprise. SentinelOne enables organizations to both deploy next-generation endpoint protection and replace antivirus while ensuring that industry and government regulatory requirements are met. Unlike other next-generation endpoint security products, SentinelOne EPP is the only platform to be certified by AV-TEST to meet regulatory requirements for anti-virus protection.
“As a finalist, SentinelOne demonstrated unique innovation in its approach to protecting companies from the onslaught of malicious attacks,” said Illena Armstrong, VP, editorial, SC Magazine. “SentinelOne EPP represents some of the most effective security technology on the market today.”
The SC Awards, now in its 19th year, are recognized throughout the security industry as the gold standard of excellence in cybersecurity. Winners in the Excellence category are determined by an expert panel of judges, handpicked by SC Magazine’s editorial team, for their breadth of knowledge and experience in the information security industry. The Excellence Awards honor the professionals, products and services that have proven to be the best in the industry for protecting today’s corporate world from cybercrime.
