Jan 31, 2023 - SentinelOne and KPMG announce alliance to accelerate cyber investigations and response

New alliance elevates holistic approach to cybersecurity

Today announced an alliance with KPMG, the audit, tax and advisory firm, to accelerate investigations and response to cyberattacks.

“Our customers are global in nature and find themselves rethinking cybersecurity,” said David Nides, KPMG Principal and National Cyber Threat Management Services Co-Leader. “The future of cybersecurity is autonomous, and SentinelOne, coupled with the industry experience of KPMG, helps prepare enterprises for tomorrow’s threat landscape. Sentinel’s Singularity XDR can help our customers respond to incidents as well as collaborate on preventive services.”

Cyberattacks are a daily occurrence for enterprises in every geography and sector. Together, KPMG cyber response services and Sentinel’s Singularity XDR can help organizations gain visibility, protection, and response against advanced threats to mitigate risk. Today’s threat landscape targets the modern enterprise perimeter, spanning endpoints, clouds, and identities.

“The KPMG and SentinelOne alliance helps provide integrated support to our clients. This is critical during an incident related deployment, and a term benefit that assists our clients in making the most of a cyber security investment,” said Jonathan Fairtlough, KPMG Principal, Cyber Threat Management Services.

For enterprises that have previously fallen victim to an attack, the KPMG Digital Responder (KDR) integrates with Singularity XDR’s data ingest, helping enterprises rapidly ingest and correlate data so incident response teams can go back in time and perform true enterprise forensics and understand the root cause of attacks. The alliance empowers enterprises to contain breaches, remediate impacted assets, and return to productivity in a rapid and complete fashion.

“The KPMG cyber team is consistently on the front lines of the most critical breaches of today, many of which compromise identity access, penetrate cloud instances and endpoints, and exfiltrate data. Sentinel’s technology provides the backbone to deliver best-in-class incident response at speed and scale as well as proactive cybersecurity readiness services. Together, KPMG and SentinelOne help the world’s leading enterprises reduce risk and stay protected.”

Saul: Although other companies may also be partnered with KPMG, this can’t help be positive for Sentinel.
