SentinelOne Granted Patent For Automated Malware Remediation Technology

SentinelOnethe autonomous endpoint protection company, today announced the company has secured a new patent from the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) for its unique malware remediation technology. The USPTO Patent No. 10,102,374 affirms SentinelOne's superior endpoint detection and response (EDR) capabilities as the only player to provide true visibility into the root causes and origins of identified malware. With the same underlying technology and codebase, SentinelOne also delivers unparalleled protection (EPP) capabilities.

SentinelOne's remediation technology can pinpoint each operation in an endpoint's operating system, in real-time, and autonomously attribute such operation to its root cause, classify it in accordance with an ever-evolving machine learning model knowledgebase of relatable operations and root causes, surgically reverse only the malicious operations resulting from the monitored operation, and neutralize not only the malicious cause operation, but also its root cause. This patented process is not offered by any other vendor in the market.

SentinelOne's real-time remediation automates EDR usage, allowing the agent itself to detect and remediate incidents without any human intervention. This dynamic remediation is critical in fending off attackers in real-time, as well as shutting down malicious actors before they establish any type of persistence or grasp of an endpoint, by automatically blocking and reversing any system changes initiated by malicious code.

"For EDR to emerge as a pervasive technology that's a part of every endpoint's technology stack, remediation and response needs to be as automated as possible, and this patent is a big step in furthering EDR's adoption and market reach," said Tomer Weingarten, CEO and Co-Founder, SentinelOne. "The USPTO has affirmed that our platform is one-of-a-kind in the way it remediates malware through our unique behavioral monitoring approach while simultaneously providing maximum forensic visibility. The automation of today's manual and tedious EDR functions is fundamental to delivering sophisticated SOC capabilities to security teams of all skill and staffing levels at scale."

The patent also covers SentinelOne's isolated rollback feature, which restores only the relevant operations caused by the threat, thus eliminating any data loss - a common undesirable consequence of other remediation tools. SentinelOne's surgical rollback capability facilitates an efficient learning process through its AI engines which analyzes all events on a protected endpoint in the context of an identified suspicious event.
