SentinelOne and Automox Partner to Automate Patching within Autonomous Endpoint Protection

Sponsored by Businesswire

the autonomous endpoint protection company, and Automox,
a global provider of cloud-based automated patch management and
configuration management solutions, today announced a strategic
partnership that allows SentinelOne customers to automate vulnerability
patching across their enterprise environment. Joint customers will be
able to enforce and automate basic cyber hygiene by ensuring all
vulnerable devices and applications are up to date and patched.

Automox and SentinelOne will be demonstrating this unique capability in
a new webinar SentinelOne
and Automox: Automating April’s Patch Tuesday
on April 16th,

Unpatched and misconfigured systems represent a massive weak spot in
enterprise security, representing 80 percent of the corporate attack
surface1. Some of the world’s most devastating data breaches,
including Equifax and SingHealth, were driven by the failure of the
organizations to patch known vulnerabilities. Through this partnership,
SentinelOne and Automox are empowering customers to rapidly enforce
proper cyber hygiene by automating the process of patching OS and Third
Party software vulnerabilities through the SentinelOne endpoint
protection platform.

“As we saw with the Equifax breach, failing to patch known
vulnerabilities is a failure of corporate responsibility. The foundation
of good cyber hygiene starts by ensuring all devices and applications
are consistently patched and upgraded,” said Jay Prassl, Automox Founder
and CEO. “The SentinelOne endpoint protection platform gives customers
unprecedented visibility into all unpatched devices and applications on
a network – which Automox can automatically patch. This gives customers
an additional layer of assurance that they’re proactively minimizing the
vectors that attackers can exploit.”

Automox patch automation is layered on top of the autonomous endpoint
protection delivered by the SentinelOne platform. SentinelOne provides
customers with deep visibility of every device and application running
both on-premise and in the cloud. This information can be fed directly
into the Automox SaaS console, which will automate the entire patching
and endpoint configuration process. Together, the solutions eliminate a
significant amount of intensive manual
, while ensuring continuous security against the latest known

“Patching vulnerabilities is one of the most important aspects of good
cyber hygiene – but identifying and prioritizing patches is a
labor-intensive process that is too often avoided or put off, leaving
corporations unnecessarily susceptible to cyber attacks,” said Daniel
Bernard, CMO, SentinelOne. “By combining the deep network visibility
only SentinelOne provides with the automated patch management process of
Automox, customers can now rapidly eliminate the vulnerabilities on
their network and focus on higher level activities such as advanced
threat hunting.”

“Automated patch management is fast becoming a core requirement of the
corporate IT security stack. For companies outside of the Fortune 500,
it is no longer tenable for SecOps and SysAdmins to consistently stay on
top of patching across all operating systems and 3rd party software. And
with the growing regulatory environment, such as PCI which requires
companies to install critical patches within 30 days of their release
per the PCI DSS 6.2, few companies are able to keep up. The fact is, a
strong security posture should include endpoint protection as well as
incorporate patch automation/orchestration tools and the idea of these
two layers merging is to say the least, intriguing,” said Alissa Knight,
Senior Analyst with Aite Group.
