SentinelOne (NYSE: S), an autonomous cybersecurity platform company, today announced a new integrated solution with Mimecast to improve end-to-end threat protection, accelerate incident response, and minimize delays for security teams. With SentinelOne and Mimecast, security teams can leverage cooperative defenses and rapidly respond to threats across email and endpoints for a holistic approach to incident response powered by XDR automation.
As tactics change, the sophistication of threat actors increases, and new vulnerabilities are constantly discovered, security operations teams are stretched to the limit investigating and remediating each incident. Email remains one of the most highly leveraged attack vectors. According to Mimecast’s 2021 State of Email Security report threats have risen 64% over the course of the pandemic, and 70% of companies expect their business to be harmed by an email-borne attack. Organizations today seek integrated defenses to protect email and improve incident response capabilities, while helping to reduce complexity, minimize risk, and decrease the demand on an already over-extended and under-staffed security team.
“Email inboxes are often a prime vector for attacking the enterprise. Mimecast detects new threats through our multi-layered inspection capabilities, helping security operations teams who are still spending too much time on the manual collection, normalization, and prioritization of data,” said Julian Martin, VP Ecosystem & Alliances, Mimecast. “Our integration with SentinelOne solves for this challenge, improving and accelerating the incident response capabilities we offer our customers.”
“As the cyber threat landscape continues to expand, detecting and responding to these threats in real-time is crucial for an organization’s security infrastructure,” said Ahmed Shah, Senior Vice President of Strategic Alliances, Optiv. “It’s important to leverage trusted security platforms like those offered by SentinelOne and Mimecast to help identify and mitigate the risk of cyberattacks.”
SentinelOne and Mimecast’s integrated solution strengthens and accelerates incident response capabilities across all security layers, including email, endpoints, and cloud. When a threat is detected in SentinelOne, the integration automatically takes actions such as suspending email for a given user, blocking the user email, or quarantining the email account.
“The speed and sophistication with which adversaries are attacking organizations has become staggering, and too often SOC teams are burdened with investigating security issues as opposed to solving them,” said Yonni Shelmerdine, VP Product Management, SentinelOne. “The integrated solution enables our customers to accelerate incident response and contain threats faster by automatically quarantining affected users in Mimecast. This ultimately reduces complexity, minimizes risk, and decreases the demands on SOC teams.”
The integrated solution between Mimecast and SentinelOne offers never-before-seen holistic protection across customer email and endpoints, significantly improving end-to-end threat detection and incident response with XDR automation.
