What advice do you have for others considering SentinelOne?


If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering SentinelOne, what would you say?

How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?

Have a look at it. Compare it. It's a very good product to have. It gives you a lot more insight. It has combined many products into one agent and it's expanding. There are a lot of things it can do now on the cloud, like containers. It gives you insight into a lot of the threats with the hunting ability. I have learned from the tool to see how our environment is. I've learned about certain behaviors of our applications, just by observing what pops up. There is a console that is in the cloud and there are agents that are all over. You put these agents on Macs or Windows or Linux, or on whatever the cloud versions are of all these virtual devices. We are spread out across the globe. We've got nearly 50,000 endpoints in different parts of the world. We generally stay as close to the latest version of the agent as possible, but we go through change-control and it is very strict. We don't just put things on endpoints. We validate and test in our environment because we have nearly every type of operating system and variations of them in our environment. Therefore, sometimes we are something like .1 or .2 of a version behind. In terms of the console, we are at the latest version. As a company, we use all variations of clouds, from Ali Cloud, which is China to Azure; we're predominantly Azure. We have AWS and GCP. SentinelOne manages that console and we have access to it. We own that part, our console. It's on AWS, I believe. Overall, is there room for improvement? Absolutely. There are gaps in the reporting because we need to give reports to different levels. Ideally, we want to just drag and drop things to create reports. They have very nice reports but they're canned. We want to be able to choose what goes into a report. Otherwise, it's right up there and I would give it a nine out of 10.

Be ready to dedicate a good amount of time to learn the API. To really get the most from the product you need to tap the REST API.

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 reporting go a long way to make this an easy sell, and the cost is excellent for the price point.

We are using the public cloud deployment model. I would rate the solution nine out of ten.

It's okay. It's a better solution than other competitors. I would rate this solution as nine out of ten.

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 the most out of the product, depending on the environment. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

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 platforms like Office 365. If you're going to start using those sort of services, then you really need a next-generation endpoint protection device like SentinelOne. I would rate it an eight out of ten.

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 always proactive and very helpful but do not rely on the automation to do everything for you. I had an instance where just glancing at the activity timeline, it was very obvious to me there was something traversing the customer's network. There was an infection that was at least partially taking hold and it was worming its way through their network and I would think that the Security Operations Center should see. If they're seeing multiple infections at the same site they should have the same inference happen and call us and notify us and do something about it. That required manual intervention and it would've been nice to get an earlier notice on it without manual review of activity by myself. I would rate SentinelOne an eight out of ten.

I would rate this solution a seven out of ten. We don't have a plan to increase the usage, it is purely based on our business requirements. This product is nothing but different from a traditional anti-virus. We were very apprehensive to try it. Once we tried it, it gave us a good impression.

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 (those with access to sensitive or confidential data). Truly an excellent solution.

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 SentinelOne. In this tool, everything is already in place and there's not much that we can do.
