SentinelOne Launches WatchTower Vital Signs Report for Cyber Insurers' Risk Management
“Inside-Out” Risk Report Brings Visibility into Organizations’ Telemetry, Identifying Cyber Threat Exposure & Helping Lower Cyber Insurance Premiums
Mountain View, Calif. – October 25, 2022 – SentinelOne (NYSE: S), an autonomous cybersecurity platform company, today announced the WatchTower Vital Signs Report app in the Singularity Marketplace. For organizations, this new reporting capability communicates an accurate profile of cybersecurity posture and controls to cyber insurers, streamlining the process of obtaining cyber insurance coverage. For cyber insurers, the app provides a real-time “inside-out” view of an enterprise’s cybersecurity health for improved policy accessibility and reduced underwriting risk.
“The state of today’s threat landscape is pushing the cyber insurance industry to its breaking point,” said Barnaby Page, VP Incident Response & Cyber Risk, SentinelOne. “Underwriting risks have become too much for insurers to stomach while rising premiums are causing enterprises to struggle in procuring cyber insurance. The industry needs better means to gauge and demonstrate exposure to cyberthreats, and we are happy to collaborate with leading risk vendors to enable the WatchTower Vital Signs Report.”
The growing number of costly data breaches, ransomware, and cyber incidents resulted in
claim payout losses for insurers rising 300% from 2018 to 2021. Consequently, in Q2 2022, U.S. cyber insurance prices increased 79% YoY. Between reduced carrier appetite for underwriting risk and ascending premiums, many organizations are finding it difficult to obtain coverage, regardless of security posture.
Historically, underwriters and brokers have defined organizational risk exposure using external scans, which don’t validate against cyber incidents or security controls effectiveness. SentinelOne’s WatchTower Vital Signs Report is based on an organization’s internal risk posture and data – capturing signals that are dynamically changing and providing deep context into risk exposure.
Leveraging Ranger Active Directory, Singularity XDR’s real-time identity attack surface module, the new reporting offering assesses susceptibility to cyber threats, including unknown assets and identity exposures – two of the leading vectors for today’s security incidents. This enables cyber insurers and brokers to gain unparalleled insights for their underwriting and risk management remits – lowering loss ratios with accurate risk pricing while increasing cyber insurance eligibility, premium discounts, and favorable coverage terms for organizations obtaining and renewing policies. In addition, businesses at risk of attack are provided with actionable, real-time insights to improve cyber resiliency.
