In response to the evolving threat landscape, organizations are moving from their legacy layered network defense to a Zero Trust security model. 85% of organizations have already defined Zero Trust initiatives but often don’t know where to start. With Zero Trust, organizations follow the “never trust, always verify” approach, which dictates that endpoints, user identities, applications, and the corporate network are no longer trusted by default. SentinelOne is committed to helping organizations succeed as they shift to a Zero Trust security model.
With the rise of credential stuffing attacks and ransomware, endpoints and identities are two of the most commonly exploited attack vectors to gain access to an organization’s data.
Attacks like these have made organizations reconsider the ‘trust by default’ approach. Insider credentials are attractive targets for attackers as they can be taken advantage of for elevated access. In contrast to attacks originating from outside of the corporate network, adversaries can leverage the implicit trust given to an identity or endpoint to move laterally within an organization’s network.
Many customers today interconnect their endpoint and identity security solutions to gain complete visibility on compromised users. This is often done through their Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) or User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA) solution.
However, this results in several disadvantages:
As organizations move to a Zero Trust model, they are looking to understand how they can continuously verify the trust of all their assets and provide explicit just-in-time access. To achieve that, organizations are looking into Extended Detection and Response (XDR) as their modern security platform that can solve the data ingestion, data analytics and processing, and central response problem.
Whereas legacy models focused on neutralizing threats originating outside an organization’s network, Zero Trust acknowledges that threats may well exist both inside and outside the network. Legacy security models trust by default the endpoints and identities within their sphere of influence; in contrast, Zero Trust follows the principle of “never trust, always verify” for all endpoints and identities.
By successfully adopting Zero Trust, organizations can perform risk-based access control and leverage the concept of least privileged access for every access decision. Organizations that successfully adopt a Zero Trust concept become more effective in protecting their assets and faster at responding to cyber threats. Ultimately, adopting Zero Trust will help organizations to reduce risk as well as Mean-time-to-Detect (MTTD) and Mean-time-to-Respond (MTTR).
The SentinelOne Singularity XDR extends visibility, analytics, and response capabilities across endpoint, user identity, cloud applications, and the network, enabling Singularity XDR to power the organization’s Zero Trust security model.
To achieve that, SentinelOne has partnered with leading solutions in Identity and Access Management (IAM), Cloud Application Security Broker (CASB), and Network Detection Response (NDR) to provide a best-of-breed Zero Trust security model where organizations can choose the vendors of their own choice.
SentinelOne is a member of the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association and is excited to announce the general availability of the SentinelOne App for Azure Active Directory. The SentinelOne Singularity XDR Platform integrates Microsoft Azure Active Directory (Azure AD), a leading enterprise identity and access management solution, to provide Zero Trust capabilities for endpoints and identities. Through the integration, organizations benefit from autonomous response capabilities that help security professionals respond to cyber threats faster.
“Global cyberattacks attacks like Kaseya or SUNBURST are a constant reminder of the importance of modernizing legacy security architectures”, said Sue Bohn, Vice President of Program Management, Microsoft. “The integration between SentinelOne and Azure Active Directory will allow organizations to combine leading endpoint and identity solutions to embrace a Zero Trust security model.”
“Joint customers benefit from built-in integration for autonomous real-time response actions”, said Raj Rajamani, Chief Product Officer, SentinelOne. “Bringing together leading endpoint and identity solutions will go a long way towards helping customers develop and mature their Zero Trust programs”.
Through the SentinelOne App for Azure Active Directory, when an endpoint is compromised, the impacted user identity information is shared in real-time with Azure AD, allowing the organization’s Conditional Access policy to prevent access to corporate resources and services.
With SentinelOne and Microsoft, organizations can begin their Zero Trust journey by unifying endpoint security and identity management for conditional access. With seamless integration, connect SentinelOne Singularity XDR to Microsoft Azure AD to enforce identity policy and automatically respond to threats.
With this powerful integration, joint customers can:
Today endpoints, regardless of whether they are workstations, laptops, mobile devices, or servers, often have different configurations, patch statuses, and operating systems, leading to inconsistent approaches to applying security policy. This problem is compounded by the rise of bring-your-own-endpoint (BYOD) and the loss of visibility from legacy network controls due to the rise of remote and hybrid working practices.
Adopting Zero Trust for endpoints can assist organizations in reducing this risk by providing the means to monitor, isolate, secure, control, and remove any endpoint from the network at any time. When integrated into a Zero Trust ecosystem, endpoints can provide valuable trust signals when determining whether to grant network access, including the endpoint’s identity, health, and compliance status.
SentinelOne Singularity XDR Protection combines next-gen prevention and Endpoint Detection Response (EDR) capabilities in a single platform with a single agent.
With Singularity, organizations benefit from:
According to Forrester, “public cloud migrations and other disruptive IT changes have often acted as a good vehicle for achieving a Zero Trust security model.”
A Zero Trust solution for cloud workloads must provide a repeatable and consistent approach to securing private, public, hybrid, and multi-cloud environments. Regardless of the public cloud environment, it’s the organization’s responsibility to monitor their cloud attack surface, which is just as vulnerable to compromise as user endpoints.
With Singularity Cloud Workload Security, organizations benefit from:
Networks have evolved due to the rise of remote work, and our perception of the network perimeter has evolved as well. Managed networks are no longer contained to a single location; they exist wherever devices, cloud workloads, and mobile devices access corporate resources.
With Singularity, organizations can better see and control their network with:
SentinelOne has partnered with other leading vendors to build the first-of-its-kind Zero Trust platform. Organizations have a wide variety of available vendors that can be integrated into a unified security platform, allowing organizations to benefit from data ingestion at scale, data analytics, and centralized autonomous response capabilities.
