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.
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.
