SentinelOne Collaborates With Intel to Increase Detection Rates of Cryptominer and Advanced Memory-Based Attacks

SentinelOne is the First Pure Play Security Vendor to Integrate
Intel’s Hardware-Based Threat Detection Technology; Independent Analysis
Validates a 10x Improvement in Scanning Time with No Increase in CPU
Usage

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–SentinelOne,
the autonomous endpoint protection company, and Intel today
announced the integration of hardware-based Intel® Threat Detection
Technology (Intel TDT) Accelerated Memory Scanning capabilities with the
SentinelOne autonomous endpoint protection console.

Independent benchmark testing from Passmark Software validates that
SentinelOne’s approach, using Intel’s silicon to power threat scanning,
significantly increases detection rates of memory-based attacks such as
crypto miners, while providing a 10x improvement in scanning time with
no increase in CPU usage. Intel and SentinelOne will be demonstrating
the detection capabilities at the RSA Conference, March 4 – 8, at
SentinelOne’s booth (#1527 South) and Intel’s booth (#6173 North).

“This collaboration with Intel is the latest step by SentinelOne to
continually improve the detection and autonomous remediation of advanced
attacks for our customers. As more and more attacks are being conducted
and orchestrated in memory, the need for tighter, faster, and more
efficient memory inspection by security software is imminent,” said
Tomer Weingarten, CEO, SentinelOne. “The integration of Accelerated
Memory Scanning is an important addition to how we power the detection
of memory-based attacks, unlocking a whole new class of attack-detection
techniques that other security software simply can’t do. This enables
customers to detect and stop these attacks in a much more rapid and
efficient manner, without impacting user performance.”

Cryptomining attacks increased dramatically in 2018 and emerged as one
of the top threats facing organizations. According to reports, Cryptomining
attacks
have become so popular they are estimated potentially to
account for almost half a percent of the world’s electricity
consumption. Detecting these attacks by looking for patterns in memory
requires a tremendous amount of computing power and can dramatically
degrade endpoint and server performance.

“Malware, especially cryptominers, continually evolves to avoid
detection, often hiding in memory or delivering malicious code directly
into the memory of a system,” said Jim Gordon, General Manager, Intel
Security Eco-System, Strategy and Development. “Intel Threat Detection
Technology seeks to use the power of silicon to help partners like
SentinelOne continually improve the detection and remediation of today’s
most advanced cyber threats.”

SentinelOne is the only next-gen solution that autonomously defends
every endpoint against every type of attack, at every stage in the
threat lifecycle. With the integration of Intel’s Accelerated Memory
Scanning capabilities, SentinelOne now offloads the processing power
needed to scan for cryptomining attacks from the CPU to the Intel
integrated graphics processor – dramatically increasing the speed of
cryptominer detection without latency or degradation of endpoint
performance. This creates a much more efficient manner to capture
memory-based cyberattacks at the OS level.

SentinelOne and Intel will be demonstrating the advanced detection
capabilities at the RSA Conference, March 4 – 8, in San Francisco, CA at
Intel’s booth (#6176) North and SentinelOne’s booth (#1527 South).

About SentinelOne
SentinelOne delivers autonomous endpoint
protection through a single agent that successfully prevents, detects
and responds to attacks across all major vectors. Designed for extreme
ease of use, the S1 platform saves customers time by applying AI to
automatically eliminate threats in real time for both on premise and
cloud environments and is the only solution to provide full visibility
across networks directly from the endpoint. To learn more visit
