SentinelOne launches new cybersecurity research unit

DUBAI, December 12, 2019

US-based SentinelOne, an autonomous endpoint protection company, has announced the launch of SentinelLabs, a research division designed to identify new attack vectors and mitigate threats impacting businesses.

Led by famed cybersecurity researcher Vitali Kremez, SentinelLabs is powering the group's first threat intelligence offering, a managed threat monitoring and reporting service designed to equip its customers in the Middle East and globally with analyst coverage of the latest cybersecurity tactics and techniques, said a statement from the company.

With the launch of the new threat intelligence platform, SentinelOne provides clients with 24/7 secure and stable access to platform data along with daily updates, detailed threat intelligence reports, infection metrics, and further requests for information and briefings, it said.

One of the research community’s most recognisable figures, Kremez leads the SentinelLabs team and specialises in researching and investigating complex cyberattacks, network intrusions, and data breaches.

Over his government and private sector career, Kremez has made numerous ground-breaking findings into Eastern Europe’s cybercrime underworld and has earned virtually every major certification available in the fields of IT, security, and digital forensics.

Kremez was selected to present at both NATO and United Nations dedicated to digital security. The SentinelLabs team also features principal threat researchers Joshua Platt, who specialises in complex financial crimeware family investigation, and Jason Reaves, who focuses on malware reverse-engineering.

Each joins SentinelOne to continue the company’s mission of defeating every attack, every second of every day, by identifying and protecting against the most advanced threat vectors impacting global enterprises.

Tamer Odeh, regional director at SentinelOne, said: “The Middle East region becomes more and more dependent on the technology with the rapidly growing digital transformation trend.”

“Introduction of 5G connectivity, cloud computing and increasing adoption of IoT technology in the region broadens cyber threat landscape and creates more opportunities for cyber attackers,” he stated.

Tomer Weingarten, CEO, SentinelOne, said: “We are excited to bring Kremez, Platt, and Reaves on board as the backbone of our public threat intelligence platform and protect our customers against the sophisticated attack-vectors that threaten their business today.”

“As crimeware groups grow ever more sophisticated and nation-state organisations’ priorities shift, enterprises are facing an increasingly complex and daunting threat landscape. Enterprises need to draw upon cutting edge solutions for protection and attack context; we are committed to continuously innovating and broadening our offerings to meet this need,” he added.-TradeArabia News Service
