Improving end-to-end threat protection
SentinelOne, the company with the leading autonomous cyber security platform, announces a new integrated solution with Mimecast that improves protection against end-to-end threats, accelerates incident response and minimizes delays for security teams. SentinelOne and Mimecast solutions enable organizations to leverage cooperative defenses and respond quickly to threats across email and endpoints to take a holistic approach to incident response, supported by XDR automation.
Holistic solutions for incident response with XDR automation
As tactics change, threat actors become more sophisticated, and new vulnerabilities are constantly being discovered, security departments are stretched to the limit in investigating and fixing each incident. E-mails are still one of the most frequently used attack vectors. According to Mimecast’s 2021 State of Email Security Report, threats have increased by 64% over the course of the pandemic, and 70% of companies expect their business to be harmed by an email-based attack. Organizations today need to use integrated defenses to protect email and improve incident responsiveness, while helping to reduce complexity, minimize risk, and reduce the demands on an already overburdened and understaffed security team.
“While Mimecast is often the first system to detect new threats through our multi-layered inspection capabilities, security teams still spend most of their time collecting, normalizing and prioritizing data about the threat, leaving little time to focus on solving the problem,” says Jules Martin, Vice President, Ecosystems & Alliances at Mimecast. “Our integration with SentinelOne allows us to improve and accelerate the incident response capabilities we offer to our customers.”
“As the cyber threat landscape continues to expand, it is critical for an organization’s security infrastructure to detect and respond to these threats in real time,” says Ahmed Shah, Senior Vice President of Strategic Alliances at Optiv. “It is important to use trusted security platforms such as SentinelOne and Mimecast to detect and mitigate the risk of cyber attacks.”
SentinelOne and Mimecast’s integrated solutions strengthen and accelerate incident response capabilities across all security layers, including email, endpoints, and the cloud. When a threat is detected in SentinelOne, the integrated solutions are designed to significantly minimize delays, as analysts can optimize the response through automatic measures such as blocking emails for a specific user, blocking user email or quarantining the email account.
“The speed and sophistication with which threat actors attack companies is now astonishing, and all too often SOC teams are burdened with investigating security issues rather than solving them,” says Yonni Shelmerdine, Vice President, Product Management, SentinelOne . “The integrated solutions enable our customers to speed up incident response and contain threats faster by automatically quarantining affected users in Mimecast. The solution ultimately reduces the complexity, minimizes the risk and reduces the requirements for the SOC teams.”
Mimecast and SentinelOne’s integrated solutions provide comprehensive protection for customers’ emails and endpoints, significantly improving end-to-end threat detection and incident response with XDR automation.
