SentinelOne and Mimecast Integrate to Improve End-To-End Threat Protection for Enterprise Devices and Email

Integrated solutions offer holistic approach to incident response with XDR automation

SentinelOne, an autonomous cybersecurity platform company, today announced a new integrated solution with Mimecast  designed to improve end-to-end threat protection, accelerate incident response, and minimise delays for security teams. With SentinelOne and Mimecast solutions, security teams can leverage co-operative 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. Organisations today must utilise integrated defenses to protect email and improve incident response capabilities, while helping to reduce complexity, minimise risk and decrease the demand on an already over-taxed and under-staffed security team.

“While Mimecast is often the first system to detect new threats through our multi-layered inspection capabilities, security operations teams are still spending the majority of time on the collection, normalisation and prioritisation of data on the threat, leaving little time to focus on solving the issue,” said Jules Martin, vice president, ecosystems & alliances at Mimecast. “Our integration with SentinelOne allows us to improve and accelerate 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 organisation’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 solutions strengthen and accelerates incident response capabilities across all security layers, including email, endpoints, and cloud. When a threat is detected in SentinelOne, the integrated solutions are engineered to significantly minimise delays as analysts can streamline response by automatically taking actions such as suspending email for a given user, blocking the user email, or quarantining the email account.

“The speed and sophistication with which threat actors are attacking organisations has become staggering, and too often SOC teams are burdened with investigating security issues as opposed to solving them,” said Yonni Shelmerdine, vice president, product management, SentinelOne. “The integrated solutions enable our customers to accelerate incident response and contain threats faster by automatically quarantining affected users in Mimecast. The solution ultimately reduces complexity, minimises risk and decreases the demand on SOC teams.”
