The significantly oversubscribed round will allow SentinelOne to continue accelerating hypergrowth driven by demand for its Singularity XDR Platform, today’s leading solution for complete enterprise protection. Since SentinelOne’s Series E funding in February 2020, the company’s valuation has tripled, exceeding $3 billion.
“We have set the standard for AI-powered cybersecurity for the new normal,” said Tomer Weingarten, CEO and Co-founder, SentinelOne. “Cloud, container, and IoT technologies are empowering today’s distributed workforce. A cohesive view of the entire enterprise network and a real-time autonomous security layer across all connected assets is required to protect people, businesses and their data, wherever they are. Our platform solution delivered via the cloud is purpose-built to secure and operationalize today’s enterprise data everywhere it resides.”
SentinelOne is the first to expand from cloud-native endpoint protection to a full XDR cybersecurity platform — that protects and monitors every asset in the enterprise. Leveraging patented behavioral AI models, SentinelOne seamlessly unifies endpoint protection (EPP), endpoint detection and response (EDR), IoT control, and container and cloud-native workload protection (CWPP).
Earlier this month, Forrester Consulting concluded a custom research study using the Total Economic Impact™ methodology. The study found that SentinelOne can provide customers with a 353% return on investment (ROI) over three years. According to the study, “SentinelOne offers a software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution that allows the customer and its endpoint users flexibility regarding physical location and access while still maintaining vigilance,” and continued that SentinelOne “enables the detection of more previously undetectable threats through its AI-powered behavior analysis that can predict and prevent malware and ransomware attacks.”
“The past eight months have been an inflection point in our business across the globe,” said Nicholas Warner, COO, SentinelOne. “The demand for flexible technology that can stand alone — without requiring services and staff — will only continue to increase as the threat landscape evolves. Our ease of deployment and autonomous remediation has made us the go-to solution to replace other next-gen products at scale.”
