SentinelOne Primary Use Case

Network Support at a university with 1,001-5,000 employees
SentinelOne performs primary functions for our endpoint antivirus and anti-malware solutions. It's a centralized managed version of an antivirus product that gives real-time information on any kind of threat we might receive. It's very broad. It not only protects through signature defense, which is like what most common antivirus products do, but it also does behavioral which has been absolutely lifesaving here a couple of times. It has saved our bacon more than once by detecting threats, it even detects zero-day threats because it detects them through their behavior. It doesn't need a signature. It actually keeps me busy with this and the insight into the agents that are installed. Our level of protection around here has never been this high. By comparison, we're also running Windows Defender, which comes with Windows 10 operating systems. We collect that data through our SCCM and SentinelOne finds threats that are at a rate of 25:1 to 30:1. It's not even close. SentinelOne has made a tremendous difference in our ability to protect our endpoints and servers. View full review »
Director - Global Information Security at a manufacturing company with 10,001+ employees
In general, we replaced our entire antivirus and anti-spyware with SentinelOne. We use it across all platforms, from servers to workstations, to Macs, to Windows, to Linux, Virtual Desktop Infrastructure, and embedded systems - on-premise and in the cloud. We also use their console and their threat-hunting. We needed a solution that was simple and intuitive, without having multiple agents. We have also started evaluating their IoT, for the discovery of all IoT devices. This is View full review »

We are a managed services provider. We are not just using it for ourselves, but we are also supporting it and deploying it for a number of our customers. The primary use case is that it's endpoint protection software and we use it to protect our end customers' endpoints, whether they are Apple or computers, laptops or servers. SentinelOne is software as a service, but it has an agent that has to be installed on a computer or a server onsite. View full review »

SentinelOne has completely replaced the antivirus solution that we used before. It's also an EDR solution. In the case of any suspicious malware, we can control the system with this agent. View full review »

Software Engineer at a healthcare company with 51-200 employees
We are a company with several types of PC users. Our office ranges from marketing to sales, and we also have people who are remote on laptops all over the world, as well as an R&D department. Those people use PCs in different ways. We wanted a platform that has ways of dealing with various kinds of users, but we also wanted a central management so we could overview the state of all our endpoints with one view. We use the central cloud interface to manage all our endpoints. We only use it on Windows machines. View full review »

System Engineer at Lyanthe
It's for our regular laptop users, desktops, and our production servers. For the production servers we use it to make sure there is nothing coming from the outside. And for our regular users it works everywhere, so they can do everything with a laptop. It's a cloud solution. We don't have a large business. We have a lot of services but we don't have many users. Everything is in the cloud and we have about 20 clients or 20 agents for normal users in the Netherlands and we have between 100 and 200 users in the Philippines. The rest is for server safety.

IT Manager at Telecorp Inc.
My primary use case for this solution to protect my clients and sites that I support from malware and ransom ware. It is installed on the end point clients and servers as a client and then it clean and protects after a reboot. As a managed service provider we found it instrumental at preventing viruses and especially preventing ransom ware. We went from 30% ransom ware infections to zero. The software stops the infection before it executes. View full review »

We are an MSP supporting various business verticals (including medical and pharmaceutical). Our core monitoring/deployment solution is SolarWinds RMM, through which we were recently introduced to SentinalOne. We use the bundled automation to install, patch, and monitor antimalware protection to endpoints. We are in the process of replacing Bitdefender with SentinalOne for several clients.

We were looking for an EDR solution to get the best protection available, especially against ransomware. For us, any EDR solution needed to be supported by a 24/7 SOC. We deploy it on-premise, in all of our factories and branch offices, worldwide. View full review »
Engineer II, Enterprise Client Support at a media company with 10,001+ employees
We use SentinelOne to secure our entire environment, including all user endpoints and servers. We are also currently testing the Deep Visibility addon. We were using a definition-based AV prior to SentinelOne, and we were getting daily/weekly infections of a variety of malware. We are a mix of PC, Mac, and Linux. We have on-premises machines and servers, as well as cloud VMs that we were wanting to protect. We wanted to purchase a Next Generation AV client that would be algorithm-based instead of definition file-based. View full review »

We use the solution for those with access to sensitive or confidential data. The cost of the solution is prohibitive for all of our users, but we do want to make sure that those with access to critical data have higher levels of protection. View full review »
Managing Partner at a tech services company with 11-50 employees
We are an IT company that sells solutions, and this is one of the products that we provide to our customers. We work on certain opportunities that require the capabilities of SentinelOne, but we do not use it for our own purposes. This solution is used to protect endpoints against malware and other threats. A lot of the deployments are hybrid. In Lebanon, the cloud is not used to a large extent. Most of the customers use on-premises solutions. View full review »
