Securing your business means more than just using strong locks and a security alarm system, in today’s world where sensitive data is a hot commodity, proper security also means IT security and ensuring you’re protected from a virus infection or data breach.
With multiple moving parts in your technology infrastructure, including computers, mobile devices, servers, network switches, routers, and peripherals, it can be a real challenge to find one tool that can secure all your endpoints and give you multi-layered protection.
Data privacy has become a major driver of new technology regulations in the past few years, and many companies have to comply with data security guidelines for HIPAA, FINRA, SOX, and others. This makes securing your technology affordably even more of a challenge.
How important is it to find a strong IT security solution?
Here are a few statistics from the “2019 Official Annual Cybercrime Report” that illustrate how vital it is for companies to have reliable safeguards in place to protect their networks.
- 90% of successful data breaches are initiated by phishing emails.
- Every 14 seconds a business becomes the victim of a ransomware attack.
- The FBI estimates that the total amount of ransomware payments annually is nearly $1 billion.
- Smart devices were the biggest technology crime driver in 2018.
How can you secure your IT infrastructure, stay compliant with data privacy rules, and avoid having to buy multiple pieces of software to do it?
Through an all-in-one solution like SentinelOne.
An Application that Defends Every Endpoint
SentinelOne is a platform that provides autonomous endpoint protection and acts as a security umbrella over your entire technology infrastructure. It’s designed to offer the multi-layered solution needed today to defend against threats as various as phishing attacks, DDoS attacks, and virus intrusions.
Cyber threats can come at you from every direction, and often malware that’s trying to make its ways past your antivirus is a “Zero-day” threat, which means it’s so new that it’s not catalogued yet in any threat databases.
SentinelOne uses a static artificial intelligence engine to identify these types of threats before they execute and does it in a way that doesn’t drag on user productivity by slowing down their computer.
Here are some of the benefits of deploying SentinelOne for your data security needs.
Protects Against Both Common and Fileless Malware
There are multiple types of malware that can infect your system and they all have different traits and forms of execution. Malware includes malicious threats such as:
- Payload-based threats
A particularly difficult to handle newer form of malware is one that does not use a malicious file at all. Instead it exploits vulnerabilities located in your operating system code and changes the way they execute to launch an attack.
SentinelOne’s technology has the ability to search out and eradicate these types of malware.
Protection Against Exploits
An exploit is a piece of code that takes advantage of a vulnerability located in a particular piece of software or hardware. Often when you get those software updates coming through, they’ll fix a vulnerability that’s been exploited by hackers.
This is another mode of attack that SentinelOne is designed to defend against, so your network is safe from exploits, such as:
- Those rooted in Office documents
- Adobe file vulnerabilities
- Spear phishing emails
- Browser-based bugs that allow drive-by downloads
Compliant with HIPAA, FINRA, and PCI DSS
If you work in the health or financial sectors, then you’ll be familiar with the need to comply with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) or the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA).
Both of these acronyms represent a specific set of data privacy guidelines that have to be met when collecting, storing, and transmitting sensitive client data.
If you take credit card payments, then another standard for data security that has to be met is the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). Non-compliance with these regulations can mean stiff fines or loss of credit card processing ability.
The SentinelOne platform is compliant with these security standards and is able to provide the cybersecurity protection, visibility, and reporting capabilities to simplify the compliance process.
Ultimate Firewall Control
A significant security feature built into SentinelOne is the Endpoint Firewall Control. This allows an administrator to control and enforce security policies and have more flexibility over firewall administration.
This feature allows visibility into all traffic, including that which is encrypted, so you can increase asset protection by addressing network-related infections.
Another benefit is the ability to prevent malware infections that connect to a Command and Control server to try to initiate remote control. Ransomware often tries to store encryption keys on a remote server, this feature can block that.
Stopping unauthorized transfer of data from your endpoints is another way firewall control reduces your risk of data leakage and having your sensitive files breached.
Simplicity & Ease of Management
With a platform that can do all that, you’d expect it to be complicated, but that’s not the case with SentinelOne. It’s designed to be user friendly and simple to use, so administrators can get up to speed quickly and deploy the protections to keep your endpoints safe and secure.
