IT, Resources

In today’s digitally interconnected world, where businesses are constantly under attack from sophisticated cyber threats, having a robust cybersecurity partner is not just an option but a necessity. In the world of cybersecurity solutions, SentinelOne’s Singularity Platform shines as a beacon of excellence. The 2023 MITRE Engenuity ATT&CK Evaluations stand as a testament to its unparalleled capabilities and ability to provide businesses with a strong defence against evolving threats.

SentinelOne’s Exceptional Performance Metrics

SentinelOne’s Singularity Platform has achieved a very high score on MITRE’s ATT&CK Enterprise Evaluation. The results speak volumes:

  • 100% Protection: Thirteen out of thirteen protection steps were decisively blocked, leaving no room for compromise.
  • 100% Detection: All eighteen detection steps were promptly identified and neutralized, ensuring comprehensive threat identification.
  • 100% Real-time Response: Swift and real-time response mechanisms left adversaries with no window for malicious activities.
  • 100% Realistic Approach: The evaluation was conducted in a realistic manner, simulating real-world scenarios for accurate assessment.
  • 96% Visibility: SentinelOne provided deep insights into attack sub-steps, enhancing the understanding of potential threats and thus ensuring proactive defence strategies.

Two Decades of Cyber Threats: The Turla Challenge

The evaluation’s focus was on the notorious Turla threat group that has been attacking businesses since 2004. Starting from Russia, Turla has attacked victims in 45 countries, targeting diverse critical industries in the last nine years. What makes Turla more powerful is that it was equally proficient at targeting Linux and Windows infrastructure. They used to enter the systems using flexible methods and blending their open-source and in-house developed malware. 

SentinelOne’s resilience against one of the most sophisticated adversaries in the cyber landscape shows its strong defence. SentinelOne’s success in countering Turla demonstrates its efficacy against adversaries adept at deploying proprietary tools and malware.

What Makes SentinelOne Stand Out 

Many reasons make SentinelOne stand out and have helped it score the perfect in most of the metrics.

Speed and Autonomy

In the ever-evolving landscape of cybersecurity threats, swift and autonomous responses are important. SentinelOne understands that time is of the essence when combating complex attacks. Cyber threats, ranging from initial access to data encryption and extortion, can unfold within minutes. Waiting on human analysts or relying on manual workflows is a luxury businesses cannot afford in the face of such rapid assaults.

Real-time Protection

SentinelOne’s commitment to immediate action is reflected in its autonomous and comprehensive protection approach. Unlike many participants in the MITRE Evaluation, their results bear no delayed modifiers. The absence of delays means our protection is automatic straight out of the box. In the real world, where every moment counts, SentinelOne’s platform ensures that your data is safe in real time without any latency.

 Zero Configuration Changes

In the evaluation arena, MITRE allows vendors a chance to re-test any step. Often, this opportunity leads to vendors introducing entirely new data sources or detection logic tailored specifically for the test scenario. However, in the real world, there are no second chances. Cyber adversaries, especially those deploying ransomware, do not wait for security upgrades during an attack. Hence, evaluating enterprise security solutions without configuration changes is pivotal. SentinelOne worked perfectly with any configuration changes.

Pragmatic Evaluation 

When assessing security solutions for real-world deployment, it is essential to scrutinize a vendor’s performance without the cushion of delays and configurations. SentinelOne’s results are a testament to this real-world approach. They offer solutions that are not just effective in controlled environments but excel where it truly matters – in the face of live cyber threats. Their commitment to authenticity ensures that their clients receive cybersecurity solutions that are as reliable as they are efficient.

The Significance of Comprehensive Visibility

In cybersecurity, comprehensive visibility serves as the bedrock of effective threat management. Understanding the intricacies of an attack, from its initiation to resolution, is essential for many reasons. 

 Holistic Incident Comprehension

One cannot underestimate the power of perceiving an attack in its entirety. By amalgamating diverse alerts and individual events, analysts gain a detailed view of the incident, surpassing data origins. This comprehensive perspective helps organisations to respond precisely, ensuring swift and effective countermeasures against potential threats.

Ensuring Thorough Adversary Eviction

After an attack, complete adversary eviction is a crucial task. Ransomware victims, susceptible to repeated targeting, need meticulous cleansing of all compromised assets to secure their systems completely. Deep insights into the attack chain are necessary to guarantee the eradication of all threats. A thorough approach ensures a resilient defence against persistent threats.

Overcoming Alert Fatigue

Traditional security solutions bombard analysts with an overwhelming volume of alerts. Sorting through hundreds or thousands of alerts is really challenging. Alert fatigue sets in that hinders investigations and delays response times.

SentinelOne’s Groundbreaking Solution: Storyline Technology

In the face of alert overload, SentinelOne introduces its patented Storyline technology—a game-changer in incident management. By seamlessly weaving together related alerts, it constructs a coherent narrative of the attack. This approach not only expedites the remediation process but also significantly enhances the accuracy of threat assessment.

Prioritised View for Reducing Alert Fatigue

SentinelOne’s Storyline technology prioritises related alerts, presenting analysts with a streamlined and focused perspective. This approach dramatically reduces alert fatigue, enabling analysts to respond swiftly and decisively. By presenting a clear narrative, Storyline technology empowers analysts to make well-informed decisions, even in the midst of complex, multi-vector attacks.

Empowering Proactive Measures for Enhancing Threat Hunting

The deep context provided by Storyline technology is a goldmine for proactive threat hunting. Analysts get a comprehensive view of proactively hunting threats across all organisational data. The enriched investigations, coupled with telemetry from third-party sources, provide a panoramic view across the enterprise. This holistic insight not only strengthens the existing security posture but also offers opportunities for proactive enhancements, ensuring a resilient and forward-thinking defence strategy.

Incorporating SentinelOne’s Storyline technology into the cybersecurity arsenal not only resolves the challenge of alert overload but also empowers organisations to transform incidents into invaluable learning experiences. By leveraging a comprehensive understanding of threats, organisations can adapt, strengthen their security posture, and navigate the digital landscape with confidence.

 Evaluating Cybersecurity in Practical Scenarios

While technology assessments are valuable, the true litmus test lies in protecting the system against actual cyber threats. SentinelOne proudly embraces the challenge of the MITRE ATT&CK Evaluation, employing the exact agents, platforms, and features trusted by customers. The Singularity Platform detected and thwarted every phase of the Turla attack, showcasing its unwavering efficacy with zero delays and no impractical modifications or bolt-on features.

Decoding MITRE Evaluation Results

SentinelOne’s approach to the MITRE Evaluation emphasised realism and relevance. MITRE categorises detections into substeps, each representing varying levels of context provided to analysts. Context increases from left to right, with Technique being the top within the detection category diagram. A “None” designation signifies a lack of data satisfying the detection criteria, making fewer “none” indicative of superior visibility.

Comparative Analysis- SentinelOne’s Outstanding Visibility

In the evaluation’s 18 steps, conducted without delays or configuration changes, SentinelOne’s performance shines. A comparative analysis with CrowdStrike and Microsoft reveals SentinelOne’s exceptional visibility, with fewer instances of “none.” Despite challenges in Step 19 due to unforeseen circumstances, SentinelOne’s overall performance is a testament to its robust cybersecurity capabilities.
