Modern employees value the freedom to determine their work environment and schedules, leveraging technology to engage in remote work; this enhances flexibility, minimizes commuting stresses, and fosters a healthier work-life balance.
From a personal experience, working remote means no waking up at six in the morning to get ready for a commute that would take at least 40 minutes one way (depending on traffic). It means not worrying about a lunch plate being stolen in a public fridge. It's being able to step away from the computer (even go outside for fresh air) for a few minutes to rest the eyes and to not fret about a commute home. As for productivity, distractions are limited, and the 80 or so minutes of total commute time in a day can be used for actual work productivity, instead.
But as refreshing as remote work is for many workers out there, it does put a burden on IT teams when it comes to cybersecurity.
There are heightened risks of data breaches due to the use of unsecured networks, potential exposure of sensitive information in home environments, increased susceptibility to phishing attacks and malware through personal devices. There are also limited oversight on employee cybersecurity practices, potential lack of robust firewalls and encryption outside the corporate network and the difficulty in maintaining consistent software updates and security patches across dispersed devices.
So, to help secure the modern workforce, SentinelOne and Netskope partnered to launch the SentinelOne Singularity App for Netskope, a joint solution that provides the comprehensive, context-rich visibility needed to detect, respond to and mitigate threats across the ever-expanding attack surface opened by distributed work.
The integration of the SentinelOne Singularity App with Netskope brings about an amalgamation of capabilities that gives a boost to organizations' abilities to comprehend and combat threats. This collaboration streamlines threat investigation and response by merging insights from Netskope's Intelligent Secure Service Edge, providing a comprehensive perspective on endpoint, cloud, DLP and SASE alerts for effective threat hunting.
Netskope Intelligent SSE secures access to web, SaaS, public cloud, private application, and data center infrastructure through a converged SWG, CASB and ZTNA suite. When combined with SentinelOne’s protection for enterprise attack surfaces, including user endpoints, cloud workloads and identity infrastructure, the two enable a dynamic, integrated solution that security teams can use to defend networks and systems against threats and stop adversaries in their tracks with greater speed and efficiency.
“Netskope provides invaluable insights into user and cloud activity and risk, and with Sentinel One, XDR customers are able to correlate this information with other systems and act upon it in an automated, intelligent and scalable manner,” said Andy Horwitz, Vice President of Business Development, Netskope.
Additionally, the partnership enables automated actions by SentinelOne (based on matches with Netskope indicators, such as isolating malicious files or quarantining endpoints), thereby expediting response times to known-malicious threats and ultimately reducing the enterprise's vulnerability to risk.
“Visibility is key to keeping today’s distributed workforce secure,” said Akhil Kapoor, Vice President, Technology Partnerships, SentinelOne. “In teaming with Netskope, we’re making it easy for our customers by providing a consolidated, granular view into threat activity across the entire technology stack, along with deep insights they can use to supercharge their hunting and investigation capabilities and keep people and information safe.”
SentinelOne Singularity App for Netskope is available on the SentinelOne Singularity Marketplace.
