SUNNYVALE, Calif., June 05, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — John Maddison, vice president of products and solutions at Fortinet 
“A rapid and coordinated response is critical to defend against today’s threats. The Fortinet Security Fabric has the breadth to scale across the entire enterprise infrastructure and the Fortinet Fabric-Ready partner program enables customers to apply the benefits of the Security Fabric to their multi-vendor environments. Working with SentinelOne helps our joint customers seamlessly integrate next-generation endpoint protections with Fortinet’s broad, powerful and automated security fabric.”

Tomer Weingarten, CEO of SentinelOne
“This new partnership with Fortinet is another significant step in changing the face of endpoint protection and replacing the old guard of legacy antivirus software on a global scale. Traditional antivirus products can’t keep pace with the evolving threat landscape and companies have relied on outdated technologies for far too long. Through this partnership, our mutual customers can now seamlessly integrate SentinelOne’s next generation endpoint protection solution, which is designed to meet the realities of today’s threat landscape.”

News Summary
Fortinet® (NASDAQ:FTNT), the global leader in high-performance cybersecurity solutions, and SentinelOne, the company transforming endpoint protection, today announced a Fabric Ready partnership to deliver SentinelOne’s next-generation endpoint protection combined with the advanced defenses of the Fortinet Security Fabric. The Fortinet and SentinelOne integrated security solution delivers a comprehensive security architecture that spans networked, application, cloud and mobile environments to provide seamless protection against today’s advanced cyber threats.

Closing the Gap Between Detection and Response
As recent high-profile attacks have highlighted, the time between malware’s initial network penetration to a full-blown outbreak can be measured in minutes. This means that effectively combatting today’s advanced and targeted cyberattacks requires tight integration between security solutions that can detect existing and new threats and automatically respond within seconds.

Joining Fortinet’s Fabric-Ready program, SentinelOne Endpoint Protection Platform is now validated within the Fortinet Security Fabric to deliver automated, next-generation defenses to endpoints and servers. This cooperative approach enables zero-touch mitigation, containment and remediation capabilities to rapidly eliminate threats. In addition, threat intelligence from the endpoint is automatically generated and shared to FortiGate enterprise firewalls using Fortinet’s FortiClient Fabric Agent, giving IT unified visibility and control over their entire security infrastructure using FortiOS.

SentinelOne’s next-generation total Endpoint Protection Platform unifies prevention, detection, and response in a single platform driven by sophisticated machine learning and intelligent automation, enabling IT to predict malicious behavior across major threat vectors, exploits, script-based, and file-less attacks in real-time and without waiting for updated threat signatures.

These capabilities combined with Fortinet’s high-performance FortiGate enterprise firewalls mitigates exposure to network threats and enables resource intensive content processing features like SSL inspection and secure VPN connectivity without degrading network or security performance. The Fortinet Security Fabric’s integrated, collaborative and adaptive architecture integrated with SentinelOne delivers security without compromise that addresses the most critical security challenges from IoT to the Cloud.

Partnering to Solve Today’s IT Security Challenges
The Fabric-Ready Partner Program opens the functionality of the Fortinet Security Fabric to complementary solutions. As part of the program SentinelOne and Fortinet will work together to validate technology integration with the Security Fabric, are committed to sharing roadmaps for consistent interoperability, and will benefit from joint go-to-market initiatives.

The Fabric-Ready program enables customers and channel partners to have greater confidence in their existing technology investments and Security Fabric offerings knowing that security solutions are proactively validated and ready for deployment. This integration reduces deployment times and technical support demands while delivering enhanced interoperability for more effective and responsive end-to-end security.
