SentinelOne Partners with Proofpoint for Enhanced Ransomware Protection


SentinelOne (NYSE: S), an autonomous cybersecurity platform company, today announced a new integration with Proofpoint to orchestrate unified ransomware protection. With SentinelOne Singularity XDR and Proofpoint Targeted Attack Protection (TAP), enterprises enjoy the benefits of threat intelligence and multi-layered detection and response from email to endpoint, cloud, and identity management.

In 2021, 83 percent of organizations experienced at least one successful email-based phishing attack, according to recent Proofpoint research. Furthermore, the threat landscape is dominated by ransomware, an increasingly prevalent risk for organizations of all sizes. Human-powered EDR and legacy antivirus struggle to quickly halt the spread of an attack and are proving to be less effective than they historically were.

“Threats come from everywhere today,” said Chuck Fontana, SVP of Business Development, SentinelOne. “Attackers continue to use phishing techniques, exploiting the weakest link in enterprise cybersecurity – humans. Proofpoint and SentinelOne are in the right alignment to solve this problem, helping cybersecurity teams save valuable time while reducing risk.”

“Regardless of the level of sophistication, modern cyberattacks, including ransomware, tend to share one common trait – they target the inbox,” said D.J. Long, Vice President, Strategic Alliances & Business Development, Proofpoint. “Proofpoint’s integration with SentinelOne will help organizations as they look to unify their cybersecurity defense, securing the inbox and preventing threats associated with their users.”

Proofpoint TAP detects, analyzes, and blocks advanced threats before they reach employee inboxes, including ransomware and other email threats delivered through malicious attachments and URLs.

SentinelOne unifies prevention, detection, and response in a single platform driven by patented machine learning and intelligent automation. With SentinelOne, organizations can detect malicious behavior across all vectors and rapidly eliminate threats with autonomous response capabilities across enterprise attack surfaces.

  • Device, inbox, and data visibility
  • Autonomous remediation capabilities including kill, quarantine, and even reversing malicious activity
  • Realtime intelligence sharing for proactive defense across the enterprise
