SentinelOne mission Launches Ventures Fund

SentinelOne describes their Mission:
Our Mission
'Cybersecurity is constantly changing. Time favors the adversary. Today’s challenges are nothing like tomorrow’s. Threats are becoming more and more advanced leveraging the power of automation. Some wait and react. At SentinelOne, we innovate. Our mission is to defeat every attack, every second, of every day. Our Singularity Platform instantly defends against cyberattacks – performing at a faster speed, greater scale, and higher accuracy than possible from any single human or even a crowd.

So, if our tech seems like something from the future, good — that’s exactly what it is.’

In July, when SentinelOne announced a number of partnerships, i wrote:

‘Earnings are certainly a significant milestone when evaluating a company and we can also include how well a company is achieving their goals and following their stated mission, along with watching the management teams performance and how the company is growing, innovating their product line capabilities, and developing partnerships.’
SentinelOne Mission, Innovations, Partnerships…

Here they are again developing more partnerships through their latest initiative.

SentinelOne is putting their money where their mission is with their latest announcement:

Another great idea coming out of SentinelOne as they hosted a collaborative security conference through their LABScon initiative.
Below is an intro/description of the Conference followed by a blog describing some of the emerging research.

SentinelOne LABScon Security Research Conference Unifies Private and Public Sector Through Groundbreaking Cybersecurity Discoveries
September 22, 2022

“The goal of LABScon is to provide a venue for advanced security collaboration and community building,”

said Migo Kedem, VP Growth and Head of SentinelLabs, SentinelOne.

“We are pleased to unite the cybersecurity community – researchers, vendors, and practitioners – to strengthen collective understanding of the security landscape. Only through shared knowledge and collaboration will cybersecurity evolve.”…

Wed, 9/21 - Sat, 9/24
Security Research in Real Time

LABScon is an intimate event for the world’s top cybersecurity minds to gather, share cutting-edge research, and push the envelope of threat landscape understanding.
Presented by SentinelOne.

Here is a blog about what is coming out of this conference:

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly in Cybersecurity – Week 39
September 23, 2022
by SentinelOne

The Good
This week saw the inaugural LABScon – a security conference intent on fostering the advancement of cybersecurity research to build a stronger collective digital defense. LABScon is hosted by SentinelLabs, the research arm of SentinelOne, with the aim of bringing together researchers and experts from across the industry to share and disseminate critical threat intelligence and knowledge.

The Bad
This week, New York emergency response and ambulance service provider, Empress EMS, disclosed a ransomware attack resulting in the exfiltration of sensitive patient files.

… cyberattacks on healthcare into stark relief. When medical services and practitioners are impeded by cyberattacks, it’s people’s lives on the line.

The Ugly
Once in a while, cybercriminals have to contend with the trouble of insider threats, too.

The rise of Ransomware-as-a-Service (RaaS) groups shows the alarming advancement and professionalization of cybercriminals. As low and medium-level threat actors increasingly turn to RaaS groups to launch complex campaigns, robust cybersecurity solutions are no longer a nice-to-have for organizations – they’re an absolute necessity.…

SentinelLabs is an open venue for our threat researchers and vetted contributors to reliably share their latest findings with a wider community of defenders.

It is good to see SentinelOne partnering with the most dynamic cybersecurity innovators including
Microsoft Azure CTO
Dmitri Alperovitch, Executive Chairman of the Silverado Policy Accelerator and CrowdStrike Co-Founder and former CTO
Chris Krebs, the first director of the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA)
Mauro Vignati, International Red Cross… and others
