Malware attacks are increasingly becoming more sophisticated, and as business increasingly moves to the cloud, companies need to up their defences to protect against them. With SentinelOne, they can do so. The world-renown autonomous cybersecurity firm announced the launch of its Cloud Data Security product line and the general availability of the first two products within it: Threat Detection for Amazon S3 and Threat Detection for NetApp.

What is the market offering of Cloud Data Security?

These new products are designed to help firms using Amazon S3 object storage and NetApp file storage to detect and prevent the spread of malware across their cloud environments.

The new product offerings are part of the Singularity™ Cloud product family and complement SentinelOne’s existing Cloud Workload Security product line that enables its global enterprise customers to detect, investigate, and automatically remediate cyber threats on their servers and containers across their public cloud, private cloud, and hybrid cloud environments. 

A modern approach to modern threats

Both cloud object storage and network-attached storage devices contain volumes of data vital to business and protecting it is critical. But with the number of files and objects often in the millions or billions, strict latency and performance requirements on storage associated with operational workloads, and malware continuously evolving, this isn’t easy to do. 

Cloud security simplified

Leveraging top threat detection tech that SentinelOne has deployed on tens of millions of endpoints, Threat Detection for NetApp and Amazon S3 scan every file added to NetApp and object to Amazon S3 storage for file-born and zero-day malware. If a malicious file is detected, SentinelOne remediates and quarantines it, keeping buckets clean and users safe.

Key features

Among the key features of the Threat Detection for NetApp and Amazon S3 products:

  • No files or objects leave the customer’s environment; scanning is done locally
  • SentinelOne’s advanced machine learning engines to detect known and unknown malware
  • Configurable policy-based coverage and response automation
  • Single console experience for managing endpoint, cloud workload, identity,

and cloud data security products

  • Built for performance, autoscales to support the most challenging environments
  • Threat metadata, including malware source
  • File fetch of quarantined and encrypted threats
  • File quarantine / unquarantine
  • File exclusions and user block list
  • Reviewed and certified by NetApp and Amazon Web Services (AWS)

Why is SentinelOne’s new product line a timely one?

“The threats our clients face constantly evolve, and as they use Amazon S3 to bolster their businesses, they’re looking for cloud-native, scalable security solutions that can help defeat those threats,” said Chris Grusz, Managing Director, Technology Partnerships for AWS.

“Security partners like SentinelOne are key to helping our joint clients meet their security and compliance needs, as well as their innovation and business objectives. Together we continue to lean forward and deliver solutions that outpace the evolving cloud security landscape.”

“As our organisation continues to adopt cloud-based storage solutions, maintaining the security of data stored in S3 Buckets has become a top concern,” commented Deno Morgan, Senior Director of Information Security at recruitment advertising platform JobTarget.

“By combining cutting-edge technology, automation and real-time malware scanning with SentinelOne’s AWS S3 scanning, our IT and business teams can spend more time focused on strategic tasks, while also strengthening the security of our systems,” added Morgan.

“Files can come from various sources like employees, clients, partners and vendors. And modern attacks readily evade traditional solutions designed to secure them. Our solutions take an equally modern approach to ensure cloud storage and workloads remain malware free,” said Ely Kahn, VP of Product Management, Cloud Security and AI/ML, SentinelOne.
