- SentinelOne would be the first Pure-Play security firm to integrate Intel’s Threat Detection Technology.
- Independent analysis of the technology validates a 10x improvement in the threat scanning time without putting a strain on the CPU.
SentinelOne, a Silicon Valley based autonomous endpoint protection provider, has reportedly announced its collaboration with semiconductor giant Intel Corporation (Intel) for the integration of Intel’s hardware-based TDT (Threat Detection Technology) to boost the rate of detection of advanced memory-based attacks.
Reports cite, SentinelOne would be the first Pure-Play security firm to integrate Intel’s Threat Detection Technology. Independent analysis pegs a 10x improvement in the threat scanning time without putting a strain on the CPU.
According to a press release by SentinelOne, the independent analysis of SentinelOne’s approach, which used silicon from Intel to power threat detection, to was carried out by Passmark Software. Passmark claimed that the approach provides a significant boost to the detection rates of the advanced memory-based attacks like crypto miners. SentinelOne & Intel would be showcasing the detection capabilities between March 4-8 at the RSA Conference.
The CEO of SentinelOne, Tomer Weingarten stated that the collaboration is the latest step by the company to continually enhance the detection as well as autonomous remediation of a variety of advanced attacks for the company’s customers. Moreover, as more attacks are being carried out & orchestrated in the memory, security software’s need for the memory inspection to be faster, lighter & more efficient is imminent. Weingarten further added that the Accelerated Memory Scanning integration is a crucial addition to how the company powers the memory-based attack detection.
Cryptomining attacks have witnessed a significant increase in their occurrence in 2018 and has emerged to be one of the top threat that organizations are facing, to that point that the attacks are estimated to account for approximately 0.5% of the electricity consumption of the world.
According to reports, the financial information pertaining to the collaboration has not been unveiled by both enterprises yet.
