Endpoint protection firm SentinelOne announced a strategic partnership with Lenovo. The California-based company stated the new partnership integrates its autonomous endpoint protection platform with Lenovo’s ThinkShield security portfolio to deliver AI-powered cloud protection, real-time prevention, ActiveEDR, and IoT security.
Founded in 2013, SentinelOne provides autonomous endpoint protection services to organizations to help them prevent, detect, respond, and hunt attacks across all major vectors. The company claims that its security platform is designed to save customers time by applying AI to automatically eliminate threats in real-time for both on-premise and cloud environments.
The partnership enables SentinelOne to become a core component of Lenovo’s ThinkShield security offerings, empowering workstations, servers, cloud workloads, and IoT devices to autonomously defend themselves in real-time.
Speaking on the new partnership, Tomer Weingarten, CEO and Co-founder, SentinelOne, said, “With the leading PC market share, Lenovo is the global choice for enterprise computing and datacenter needs. They need the very best in protection and visibility as their devices are the front lines in the fight against cybercriminals. We are excited to equip Lenovo with technology to deliver a security advantage, hardening endpoints to autonomously prevent, detect, and respond to modern-day risks and threats without impacting device performance.”
“The endpoint has increasingly become the preferred vector of cyberattack; this is especially true as digital transformation continues to accelerate where and how work is done. Inherent to our strategy of ‘Smarter Technology for All’ is secure endpoint solutions. This strategic partnership between Lenovo and SentinelOne means that our enterprise customers can now take advantage of the combined power to deliver industry-leading endpoint protection that leverages true, contextual AI,” said Nima Baiati, global director and GM, Cybersecurity Solutions, Intelligent Devices Group, Lenovo.
Recently, SentinelOne raised US$200 million in Series E funding led by private equity firm Insight Partners along with participation from Tiger Global Management, Qualcomm Ventures LLC, Vista Public Strategies of Vista Equity Partners, and Third Point Ventures. The company stated the new investment will be used to accelerate the company’s next-gen endpoint, cloud, and IoT protection platforms through its autonomous AI mechanism.
