SentinelOne has announced that it has completed its acquisition of cloud-native application protection platform (CNAPP) PingSafe, ushering in a new era of cloud security which it is in pole position to lead.
“Most of today’s cyber attacks start with endpoints and identities, and security teams can’t stop them without comprehensive visibility across all vectors. CNAPP alone can’t provide this,” said Ric Smith, Chief Product and Technology Officer, SentinelOne. “With the acquisition of PingSafe, SentinelOne is redefining what cloud security means by combining its AI-powered workload protection and Singularity™ Data Lake with a comprehensive CNAPP to create a unified security platform that protects the entire enterprise.”
The company says, when integrated into the Singularity Platform, PingSafe’s differentiated capabilities will give SentinelOne a leading cloud security solution across agentless CNAPP and agent-based threat protection for workloads and cloud storage.
“The acquisition of PingSafe is a strong one, further solidifying SentinelOne’s technology base while also allowing it to expand the reach of its unified security approach further,” notes Steve McDowell, Chief Analyst at NAND Research. “This is another example of SentinelOne continuing to execute its strategic initiatives in the face of a challenging competitive landscape.”
