Endpoint protection provider, SentinelOne, recently announced that it has partnered with Lookout as a means to integrate mobile threat data into SentinelOne’s console in order to protect mobile endpoints from advanced attacks. SentinelOne will be the first and only next-gen endpoint vendor to provide users with integrated next-gen protection for mobile endpoints.
As ransomware and malware attacks are increasingly being directed towards mobile devices instead of desktops, businesses now need autonomous protection that can preemptively detect and block threats from affecting employee devices. Via this integration, Lookout will transfer iOS and Android threat information into SentinelOne’s console directly. This process will provide organizations with a pre-execution, on-execution, and post-execution view of threats. The display of mobile threat data in combination with server, cloud, and desktop threat data will enable security teams to protect enterprise endpoints through a single console.
CEO and co-founder of SentinelOne, Tomer Weingarten, spoke on the partnership, stating, “business is increasingly done on mobile devices. Adversaries know this and are adjusting their attacks and malware payloads accordingly. Secure organizations are starting to protect mobile endpoints as diligently as they do servers or desktops. The integration with Lookout provides our customers with needed visibility across all attack surfaces – a single view of critical assets and their protection status.”
The integration between these two providers will add Lookout deep links for descriptions of mobile threats and enable users to access Lookout’s Mobile Endpoint Security console in order to configure changes, all taking place from within the SentinelOne console.
CEO of Lookout, Jim Dolce, also discussed the new partnership, saying, “over the last 10 years, Lookout has built the world’s largest mobile security dataset, giving us the intelligence needed to stay ahead of threat actors and accurately predict their next attack – whether it’s malware, and exploited vulnerability, a man-in-the-middle attack, or a phishing attempt. It’s this understanding of the mobile threat landscape that allows us to provide superior protection across the mobile spectrum of risk. As the number of endpoints enterprises must protect increases, and the complexity of cyber-attacks continue as well, Lookout’s partnership with SentinelOne provides customers with comprehensive next-generation endpoint protection.”
