SentinelOne, an autonomous cybersecurity platform company, and Kroll, the world’s premier provider of services and digital products related to governance, risk, and transparency, announced that they have entered into a strategic partnership.
Through the partnership, SentinelOne’s Singularity XDR platform and ActiveEDR work together to power the Kroll Responder MDR service, which speeds up investigations and response to ransomware and advanced threats.
“As threat actors relentlessly refine the scope and sophistication of their attacks against organizations across the globe, defenders must adapt,” said Marc Brawner, Global Head of Managed Services for Kroll’s Cyber Risk practice. “Kroll is committed to providing our clients with leading technologies, services, and strategies to effectively mitigate risk — and we are thrilled to add SentinelOne as one of our trusted platforms.”
Kroll was the first to employ EDR technology to substantially improve the pace and outcomes of threat hunting, incident response, and forensic investigations for its clients more than eight years ago.
Today, this well-honed approach, leveraged by Kroll in thousands of incidents worldwide every year, fuels the Kroll Responder MDR solution, which has seen client subscriptions grow by over 130% over the past 12 months.
A recent Kroll survey of 500 security leaders revealed that increased automation and time taken to remediate threats are the two most important aspects for improved response.
SentinelOne’s Singularity XDR platform and ActiveEDR provides automated prevention, active response, remediation, and ransomware rollback capabilities – significantly decreasing incident recovery times.
“Kroll provides unparalleled cyber risk and breach response expertise, handling many of the world’s most complex and high-profile incidents,” said Nicholas Warner, COO, SentinelOne. “The level of autonomy that our technology provides allows Kroll’s hunting and response team to do what they do best, limiting the need for manual investigation and speeding response. It’s an honor to be selected as a key technology partner for Kroll, and we look forward to playing a role in the long term success of their MDR business.”
