SentinelOne Wins CRN’s 2021 Product of Yea

SentinelOne (NYSE: S), an autonomous cybersecurity platform company, today announced that the company’s Singularity XDR Platform has been recognized as the 2021 Endpoint Protection Security Product of the Year.

The award is the output of an industry-wide product survey analyzing technology, revenue, and profit opportunities for partners as well as customer demand across leading vendors.

SentinelOne is differentiated in its ability to innovate at scale and create a hyper-growth global go-to-market. According to CRN, “SentinelOne’s decision to rely on partners for services delivery stands in contrast to rival CrowdStrike, which has a broad portfolio of vendor-delivered assessment, advisory, technical, managed and incident response services.”
Today, thousands of technology partners lead with Singularity XDR, bringing SentinelOne into enterprises to replace legacy antivirus and other next-gen products.

“We’ve created a cloud-native XDR platform that rapidly deploys across all major operating systems and cloud infrastructures delivering AI-powered visibility, protection, and autonomous response,” said Nicholas Warner, COO, SentinelOne. “SentinelOne sets itself apart with our technology, innovation, and partner-friendly approach – together these are structural and long-lasting competitive moats.”

“In 2009 CRN’s U.S. version was recognized as a leading advertising medium for the IT industry by B2B’s Media Power 50 ranking, which called it the “unrivaled leader in covering the channel”.


I am not sure what methods they sued or the criteria they looked for to come up with this ranking, but it is surprising to me that Crowdstrike didn’t even make the list among the finalists for this ranking, while McAfee and Malwarebytes are among the finalists. To be honest, I always take any rankings with a grain of salt.

Although, it is good to see being chosen as the winner in the Office Productivity Software category (here again, Asana didn’t make the list of finalists). It does provide some validation for Monday being the best product out there, although that alone is not a reason to be investing in any company.
