SentinelOne, a global leader in artificial intelligence (AI)-powered security, has on Monday announced that it has completed its acquisition of India-based cloud-native application protection platform (CNAPP) PingSafe, ushering in a new era of cloud security which it is in pole position to lead.

SentinelOne said in a statement that the acquisition of PingSafe is a transformative move that will enable SentinelOne to grow the value and security it offers to customers.

When integrated into the Singularity™ Platform, PingSafe’s differentiated capabilities will give SentinelOne a leading cloud security solution across agentless CNAPP and agent-based threat protection for workloads and cloud storage, said the statement.

“Most of today’s cyber attacks start with endpoints and identities, and security teams can’t stop them without comprehensive visibility across all vectors. CNAPP alone can’t provide this,” said Ric Smith, Chief Product and Technology Officer, SentinelOne.

With the acquisition of PingSafe, he said SentinelOne is redefining what cloud security means by combining its AI-powered workload protection and Singularity™ Data Lake with a comprehensive CNAPP to create a unified security platform that protects the entire enterprise.

Steve McDowell, Chief Analyst at NAND Research, said the acquisition of PingSafe is a strong one, further solidifying SentinelOne’s technology base while also allowing it to expand the reach of its unified security approach further.

“This is another example of SentinelOne continuing to execute its strategic initiatives in the face of a challenging competitive landscape,” he added.

It is noted that SentinelOne’s Singularity™ Platform detects, prevents, and responds to cyber attacks at machine speed, empowering organizations to secure endpoints, cloud workloads, containers, identities, and mobile and network-connected devices with speed, accuracy and simplicity.

SentinelOne has over 11,500 customers, including Fortune 10, Fortune 500, and Global 2000 companies, as well as prominent governments.
