What is most valuable?

The fact that this runs using AI instead of heuristics provides the best protection I've seen. It has the ability to rollback a ransomware infection instantly and with… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Deployment is automatable through the RMM, though a little clunky to do. The provided automation was a little challenging, but once you get it configured it's quite… more»

What needs improvement?

Set up is very labor-intensive. You have to provide multiple codes from multiple places within the S1 dashboard in order to use the provided automation, and it's different… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The per-seat cost is low, but you have to commit to a certain number of licenses for a year.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We used Bitdefender (also through SolarWinds) previously. SentinalOne was pitched by SolarWinds a few months ago as an alternative with robust ransomware protection. Being… more»

What other advice do I have?

Definitely worth the money compared to heuristic solutions, especially for clients who tend to "stretch" their hardware as long as possible. The low impact and robust… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We really hadn't seen EDR solutions in action before. Our decision was based primarily on the fact that it has SolarWinds integration.

What is most valuable?

I have found the activity timeline and threat analysis to be particularly useful.

What needs improvement?

The automation of certain features could use improvement. For example, it seems common sense to me that if a threat was executed out of a task in your task scheduler that part of neutralizing the threat would be removing that task from the scheduler. I would like to see something a little more… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We still use our traditional antivirus packages, Vipre and Bitdefender, depending on the customer and their use case.

What other advice do I have?

I would advise someone considering this solution to make sure that you leverage the features. It's particularly very useful in sites such as the threat timeline where it gives you a breakdown of the files and network connections. Call the SOC, the Security Operations Center, with questions. They're… more»

What is most valuable?

SentinelOne’s Rollback is its best feature. No solution can ever provide a 100% protection, but their rollback feature closes this gap in endpoint security giving end… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Before it was a challenge for us to know who had an existing endpoint issue or who had the most attacks within the corporate network. Since SentinelOne was introduced, it… more»

What needs improvement?

They need to improve their UI and the way they show that the scanning is running on the endpoint. Sometimes users wanted to see whether their AV is working via visual… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The price for it is very competitive compared to other Next Gen EPP. You can really get a great value for it when it is integrated with EDR.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

As of now, SentinelOne still serves as an augmentation for our existing AV, but some of our devices are now using it as their sole endpoint protection.

What other advice do I have?

They have an impressive product. Understand how endpoint protection technologies work, since they do not rely on signature databases anymore. Also, follow deployment… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

No, since we already had experience with other products. As of today, we have tested one of its competitor using AI, but their overall protection still cannot be compared… more»

What is most valuable?

The forensics analysis feature provides substantial help in determining the extent of the problem and how it affects the machines.

How has it helped my organization?

Users who have SentinelOne are very pleased with the solution and its protection, no complaints.

What needs improvement?

The SentinelOne is one of my daily consoles and I use it regularly to identify the root cause of some infections. However, when a file is flagged as suspicious it would be… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing is rather elevated. However, the solution is the most transparent for the uses I have ever encountered as well as being normally very informative and accurate… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

Yes, we continue to use Kaspersky for our other users.

What other advice do I have?

If you have the budget, this is a top-notch solution. We have used the solution for over a year now, and we plan to continue using the solution for our most critical users… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated several other options, including Bromium, Carbon Black, CrowdStrike, Cylance, Forcepoint, Invincea, and some others.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of this solution is the user-friendly interface. Our customers ask for something that is easy to use, easy to manipulate and doesn't require too much intervention. This is where SentinelOne scored big against CrowdStrike and Carbon Black. This solution is easy to install.

What needs improvement?

This solution would be more attractive to customers if the price were lower.

What other advice do I have?

I have done POCs with this solution for two customers and there has been no negative feedback. My advice for anybody considering this product is to do a POC and check to ensure it fits their environment. In some areas, this may be the best product to use, but in another environment, another product or another solution would be a better fit. It's always a matter of doing the POC and trying to get… more»

What is most valuable?

If I am breached, they will pay the ransom on my behalf. Cybercrime is growing in the world of technology, the defense in today’s world has no accountability. If breached… more»

How has it helped my organization?

With automation, the time wasted on malware, like ransomware, is dealt with on a scale where everything is centralized. The IT Technician does not have to wait for a user… more»

What needs improvement?

* Deployment strategy for large organizations that do not use active directory (AD). * Windows updates have not been done on the client side, so minimum requirements stop… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Spend money on the security for the endpoint. That is where the data lies and where hackers try an attack, not the network or firewalls.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

Yes, Sophos, I switched because SentinelOne does more things and guarantees against ransomware and can find hidden threats that other solution could not find.

What other advice do I have?

Ask about accountability for hidden and dormant threats that could be in your network.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Sophos, AVG, Avast, McAfee, Kaspersky, and ESET.

What is most valuable?

It has good visibility features and it's straightforward. It's not so complex.

How has it helped my organization?

SentinelOne uses behavioral analysis and artificial intelligence to detect unknown malware. That is what all enterprises require today. They don't want to go with some normal anti-malware tool, which has less sophisticated detection. Even if something suspicious or a Zero-day enters the environment… more»

What needs improvement?

There is not much flexibility in terms of policy fine-tuning. We can turn it off or turn it on, but there's nothing much else to do. Everything is predefined. It's good in a way, but you don't get much flexibility if you want to do something particular.

What other advice do I have?

I just had a conversation with a colleague who has bought McAfee ePO. He was saying that he was able to do much more in that tool than in SentinelOne. For example, he mentioned that he was able to see traffic on a particular port on a particular system, using ePO. We cannot do that using… more»

What is most valuable?

All of the features are valuable. The way that it integrates into management with fault correction capabilities over is especially valuable. Any of the full gamut of the features that it provides are useful to us.

What needs improvement?

In terms of improvement, I would like to see better alerting to let us know if there is anything wrong with SentinelOne working on the endpoint of the computer.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We were previously using another solution and it was a corporate decision to switch to this solution.

What other advice do I have?

I strongly recommend this solution. I would recommend that you get onto a next-generation endpoint security device like this one. It's much better protection for corporate environments particularly with a lot of cloud integration and… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We didn't evaluate other options before choosing this solution.

SentinelOne Questions

What is SentinelOne?

SentinelOne Endpoint Protection Platform (EPP) unifies prevention, detection and response in a single platform driven by sophisticated machine learning and intelligent automation. It enables you to prevent and detect attacks across all major vectors, rapidly eliminate threats with fully automated, policy-driven response capabilities, and gain complete visibility into your endpoint environment with full-context, real-time forensics.

SentinelOne also offers Ransomware Cyber Guarantee, which is an opt-in program that provides SentinelOne Endpoint Protection Platform (EPP) customers with financial support against demanded ransoms in the event an organization is infected with ransomware and EPP is unable to successfully block or remediate its effects.
