SentinelOne, an autonomous cybersecurity platform company, has announced completion of the IRAP assessment for the SentinelOne Singularity XDR Platform. The assessment enables SentinelOne to work with the Australian government to improve its cybersecurity posture.
What is the IRAP assessment?
IRAP is an Australian Signals Directorate (ASD) initiative that provides high-quality information and communications technology (ICT) security assessment services to govt and industry. IRAP assesses cybersecurity systems in order to determine the extent to which systems align with the govt’s standards, including the ACSC’s Information Security Manual (ISM).
The Australian Government has recognised the imperative of modernising its systems and infrastructure. To this end, the federal government has allocated a significant budget of $31.3 million in its revised budget of October 2022 to extend its pilot Cyber Hubs program.
This investment reaffirms the governmentt’s unwavering dedication to enhancing the nation’s cybersecurity capabilities, thus fortifying its defences against cyber threats and vulnerabilities.
What does the assessment mean for SentinelOne?
The SentinelOne Singularity XDR Platform has been assessed to operate at the ‘Protected’ level status under the independent Information Security Registered Assessors Program (IRAP), ahead of competitor XDR solutions from the likes of CrowdStrike and Microsoft.
“Achieving IRAP status is a testament to the quality of our Singularity XDR Platform, confirming that SentinelOne is ready and willing to work directly with the Australian govt to improve their cybersecurity posture. We look forward to helping departments replace outdated legacy tools and upgrade to XDR, insulating themselves against an increasingly complex threat landscape,” said Jason Duerden, Regional Director, ANZ, SentinelOne.
Singularity XDR SentinelOne is already in production, protecting government agencies and critical infrastructure in Australia. For more information about SentinelOne, visit the website.
