SentinelOne’s cloud-based platform seamlessly scales, making it well suited to protect both businesses and employees rapidly transitioning to a work-from-home environment, whether they are using corporate or personal devices. As part of this free offering, SentinelOne will provide:

  • SentinelOne Core: AI-powered prevention, detection, and automated response in a single, autonomous lightweight agent; legacy antivirus replacement across Windows, Mac, and Linux operating systems with no connectivity or network dependency
  • Deployment services:  remote deployment assistance to ensure rapid installation and customised configuration

SentinelOne is offering businesses as many licenses as they need, without limits. This timely offering immediately puts invaluable resources at security professionals’ disposal during a period of significant disruption.

Many cybercrime groups are capitalising on COVID-19 concerns to deliver new malware payloads and test new techniques. SentinelOne’s patented ActiveEDR allows security teams to quickly understand the context and root cause behind any potential intrusion and autonomously respond, providing a critical service to cybersecurity professionals trying to navigate a difficult period full of workplace upheaval that can easily result in new vulnerabilities. With the vast majority of the workforce changing its habits, securing the world’s commerce, communications, and creativity has never been more critical.

“As the world faces the Coronavirus epidemic, we must keep the internet and devices protected, especially as many companies have suddenly been forced to embrace work-from-home on a condensed timeline” said Tomer Weingarten, CEO and Co-founder, SentinelOne. “During these trying times, SentinelOne won’t sit idly by and allow cybercriminals to have the upper hand when targets are more vulnerable than ever, particularly across business and healthcare sectors. Making SentinelOne freely available helps organisations prioritise security while halting attackers hoping to take advantage of this global situation. The entire SentinelOne team stands behind our promise to help at this time of need, in any way we can.”

“The world is united and focused on dealing with an epidemic,” added Weingarten. “The last thing anyone needs right now are cyberattacks to add further strain on businesses and employees. We are committed to doing our part and hope that SentinelOne’s contribution allows enterprises to stay protected as the world faces Coronavirus.”
