MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SentinelOne, the autonomous cybersecurity platform company, announced today that the company is a sponsor of the 2021 AT&T Cybersecurity Insights Report: 5G and the Journey to the Edge. The new report is based on a survey of 1,000 security practitioners from the United States, Canada, India, Australia, Singapore, South Korea, France, Germany, Ireland and the United Kingdom, conducted during September 2020.
Highlights from AT&T Cybersecurity’s report include security in a 5G-enabled world, a discussion of the shared responsibility model of security for 5G between the carrier and the business, and the explosion of diverse connected “things” and why security matters.
Together, SentinelOne and AT&T Cybersecurity are working to provide a 5G experience to customers that enables stronger security of endpoint devices. With telco providers rolling out 5G services, the number of connected devices is expanding exponentially - by 2030, it’s projected that there will be 25.4 billion active IoT devices, up from 7.7 billion in 2019. The influx of potentially vulnerable connected devices creates new opportunities for attackers. The SentinelOne Singularity XDR platform provides a cohesive view of the entire enterprise network, seamlessly unifying endpoint protection (EPP), endpoint detection and response (EDR), IoT control, and container and cloud-native workload protection (CWPP) to help AT&T Cybersecurity customers defend against today and tomorrow’s cyber threats.
With SentinelOne, AT&T Cybersecurity is expanding its security coverage to better defend against the threats of a 5G device enabled world. SentinelOne identifies connected devices, understands the context of every signal, and defends against attacks in progress as well as new threat vectors.
“AT&T Cybersecurity understands the security implications of 5G,” said Josh Dreyer, Global Manager - AT&T, SentinelOne. “While 5G enablement opens exciting new opportunities for enterprises and consumers alike, it also expands vulnerable surface areas available to attackers. By aligning with SentinelOne, AT&T Cybersecurity is proactively delivering best-in-class cybersecurity, providing customers an opportunity to own their cybersecurity story and protect themselves with the power of autonomous AI.”
“Identifying the importance of cybersecurity for connected assets such as applications, endpoints, and users is critically important as we see 5G adoption in businesses gain traction and drive business differentiation,” said Theresa Lanowitz, Director of Cybersecurity Communications, AT&T Cybersecurity. “5G technology is revolutionary, and security professionals expect that 5G will require a change to their security approach in order to accommodate the network changes. Having SentinelOne as one of the sponsors of our report helps to highlight the continuing importance of cybersecurity in a hyperconnected world.”
SentinelOne helps customers prevent breaches before they ever occur by using artificial intelligence to replace legacy and next-gen antivirus technology, delivering proactive and real-time autonomous cybersecurity on every edge of the network. The company recently raised $267 million in Series F funding, tripling the company’s valuation since its Series E in February to more than $3 billion.
