MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SentinelOne, the autonomous endpoint protection company, today announced that it was named McKesson Technology’s Partner of the Year at the McKesson Technology – 2019 Supplier Summit.
The Partner of the Year award is designed to recognize the supplier that best differentiated itself from all other McKesson Technology providers, and in doing so, became a trusted advisor in the delivery of business value to McKesson Technology’s end users. SentinelOne has been a McKesson supplier since global deployment in 2017, when McKesson selected the company’s autonomous endpoint protection platform to replace its legacy antivirus solution.
Siobhan Smyth, SVP, Global CISO at McKesson, spoke about why McKesson Technology made the decision to replace its former solution with SentinelOne’s platform and the results of that partnership:
“McKesson was looking for a next-gen antivirus solution to replace the old technology that did not work in the modern environment. We selected SentinelOne. We selected them for the endpoint security solution they provide today, as well as their vision and roadmap. SentinelOne was a great partner throughout the implementation, not just during the sales process. Their support-to-date, and their continuing journey to achieve the vision they articulated, reinforce our decision to partner with SentinelOne.”
McKesson Corporation (NYSE:MCK) is currently ranked 7th on the Fortune 500 and is a global leader in healthcare supply chain management solutions, retail pharmacy, community oncology and specialty care, and healthcare information technology. The company employs more than 80,000 people and works with thousands of suppliers globally.
“We’re extremely honored to be chosen as McKesson Technology’s Partner of the Year and to help this leading organization secure its critical assets and network,” said Tomer Weingarten, CEO and Co-founder, SentinelOne. “We’ve built a tremendous relationship with McKesson based on a mutual trust developed throughout the sales process, technology deployment, and ongoing customer experience with our solution. We’re excited to continue to strengthen this relationship and help secure McKesson globally.”
