In his latest piece, Tamer Odeh, Regional Director at SentinelOne in the Middle East discusses the challenges faced by today’s security teams and best practices for threat hunting.
CNME Editor Mark Forker spoke to Tamer Odeh, Regional Director at SentinelOne, Middle East, onsite at GISEC 2021, to find out how their patented AI technology is equipping businesses with the solutions required to deter, mitigate and stop ransomware attacks – and why the end-point has become the first line of defense for enterprises.
Ransomware is on the rise again. A recent industry report found that ransomware attacks increased by 150% in the last year, while blockchain research firm Chainalysis saw a 311% increase, year on year, to the end of 2020 in the number of actual ransomware attacks. Ransomware is also a growing concern in the Middle East region, as attack frequency and sophistication rose significantly since last year.
A new threat actor SentinelLabs tracked as Agrius was observed operating in Israel starting in 2020. Initially engaged in espionage activity, Agrius deployed a set of destructive wiper attacks against Israeli targets, masquerading the activity as ransomware attacks. The attacks were carried out using DEADWOOD (aka Detbosit), a wiper with unconfirmed links to an Iranian threat group.
Today’s organisations require the ability to autonomously secure all enterprise data – security related or not. This is exactly where enterprises can benefit from adopting XDR, an integrated platform that provides visibility and automated defences required across all assets.
SentinelOne, the autonomous cybersecurity platform company, has announced that Barak Sternberg, SentinelLabs security researcher, has identified four unique vulnerabilities in HDL Automation smart devices.
SentinelOne has been announced as the official cybersecurity provider to British luxury car manufacturer, Aston Martin Lagonda, deploying the next generation endpoint protection platform to secure its manufacturing, headquarters, supply chain, and field offices against the ever evolving threat landscape.
SentinelOne has unveiled its Singularity Platform, an industry first data lake that seamlessly fuses together the data, access, control, and integration planes.
Exclusive Networks together with SentinelOne hosted a dedicated partner event to discuss the recent trends in endpoint security and the latest updates in the vendor’s endpoint protection offerings.
With SentinelOne’s ability to mitigate the effects of attacks even after infection, this partnership enables Help AG to arm Middle Eastern enterprises against endpoint attacks.
