MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SentinelOne, the company that’s transforming endpoint security, today announced that it was named Best Emerging Technology in the 2016 SC Awards. Winners were selected by a distinguished group of IT security professionals selected from SC Magazine’s readership, and announced at the SC Awards ceremony last week at RSA Conference 2016 in San Francisco.
“Being named Best Emerging Technology of the year in the hyper competitive SC Awards is a major accomplishment since it spans all categories of infosecurity innovation,” said Tomer Weingarten, CEO SentinelOne. “Our ability to detect and protect against the most elusive and virulent forms of attack, including ransomware and nation-grade exploits, is a major breakthrough. Since we are AV-TEST certified, we can totally displace antivirus in regulated environments.”
Unlike signature-based security products that rely on static analysis, SentinelOne’s Dynamic Behavior Tracking (DBT) engine closely monitors each newly-created process on a machine through its lifecycle, identifying malicious patterns and eliminating threats in real-time. This approach defends against advanced malware, exploit-based attacks, and insider threats that use stealthy evasion techniques which can bypass traditional security methods.
“From advanced hacks to massive malvertising campaigns to a host of ransomware variations, 2015 showed that once again, cybercriminals are upping their game when it comes to exploiting today’s businesses,” said Illena Armstrong, VP, editorial, SC Magazine. “As a winner in the Excellence Award category, SentinelOne proved their ability to execute comprehensive security measures to protect the enterprise from data-stealing attacks.”
Regardless of the attack vector used, once malicious actions are initiated, whether on disk or in memory, SentinelOne immediately detects the threat and automatically takes mitigation and containment actions to eliminate it. SentinelOne’s Endpoint Protection Platform uniquely integrates prevention, detection, mitigation, remediation and real-time forensics for desktops, laptops, VDI, physical and virtual servers, embedded systems like PoS, and critical infrastructure like SCADA. SentinelOne supports major platforms, including Windows, OS X and Linux. For more information on SentinelOne EPP, please visit http://bit.ly/1OkXLgI.
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.
