SentinelOne Granted New Patent for Automated Malware Detection and Remediation Technology

SentinelOne, the autonomous endpoint protection company, today announced it has secured a new patent from the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO). SentinelOne's latest patent, USPTO Patent No. 10,417,424 titled Method of Remediating Operations Performed by a Program and System Thereof (remediation continuation patent), recognizes SentinelOne for its revolutionary approach in monitoring and attributing events in various computing environments to their real source of operation and in relation to other relevant events. The recognition extends such capabilities to additional applications, most notably detection and attribution capabilities within SentinelOne's ActiveEDR.

In October 2018, SentinelOne was granted USPTO Patent No. 10,102,374 for the company's unique malware remediation technology. In real-time, SentinelOne's remediation technology can pinpoint each operation in an operating system and autonomously attribute such operation to its root cause. From there, the technology can classify operations 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.

SentinelOne's latest patent further affirms the unique, autonomous nature of SentinelOne's ActiveEDR at all stages of EDR operations. SentinelOne's ActiveEDR, powered by proprietary TrueContext Behavioral AI, transforms data into TrueContext stories, raising high fidelity alerts when threat behavior is observed. The new patent specifically highlights capabilities with respect to newly introduced malware in monitored operating systems, and the capacity to fully understand and map the relations between newly found malware, operations taking place due to such malware, and all related malicious software introduced earlier or later to a protected network of endpoints.

"SentinelOne's remediation continuation patent decisively validates the innovative and superior approach we take in delivering combined EPP and EDR technology," said Tomer Weingarten, CEO and Co-founder, SentinelOne. "In addition to best-in-class prevention capabilities, automating manual, time consuming EDR functions is essential to providing security operations with the tools required to negate the widely acknowledged skill and staffing shortage today's SOC teams face. SentinelOne remains steadfast in leading the convergence of EPP and EDR as well as automating machine speed enterprise risk mitigation."

In addition to receiving its second patent for autonomous EDR functionality, SentinelOne recently enhanced its platform integration with the MITRE ATT&CK framework, making the framework the new standard for advanced threat hunting, eradicating "needle in the haystack" searches and providing fully assembled threat context.
