Antivirus and other endpoint solutions have focused on binary and signature-based malware prevention since the 1980s—but today, attacks are incredibly sophisticated and attackers have become adept at bypassing these legacy approaches,” said David Ginat, VP of R&D, SentinelOne. “At SentinelOne, we continue to shape the future of endpoint security; receiving such a security effectiveness rating is a testament to SentinelOne delivering the most advanced and effective single agent EPP+EDR offering on the market today.”

The SentinelOne Endpoint Protection Platform tackles problems legacy antivirus and many other next-generation endpoint security solutions simply can’t – and replaces legacy antivirus solutions in over 80 percent of new deployments. Using machine learning and AI to dynamically analyze all low-level processes running on the endpoint device, the platform predicts malicious behavior and stops attacks from spreading, so the threats are detected before they are ever granted access to network resources. This happens much faster than traditional AVs would allow and includes stopping zero-day attacks.

NSS Labs is focused on empowering enterprises to make informed decisions based on independent real-world testing results,” said Vikram Phatak, CEO, NSS Labs. “During the testing for this year’s report, the SentinelOne Endpoint Protection Platform consistently demonstrated strong security effectiveness, which we believe makes SentinelOne an optimal choice for any business looking to improve its threat protection with endpoint security technologies.”

The 2018 Advanced Endpoint Protection (AEP) Report conducted by NSS Labs tested solutions from 20 market leaders over the course of the past six months. The report provides empirical data and objective test results that enable organizations to make educated decisions about purchasing and optimizing security infrastructure products and services.
