SentinelOne CEO On Microsoft’s Security Copilot: ‘It’s A Nice Chatbot’
In an interview with CRN, SentinelOne Co-Founder and CEO Tomer Weingarten says his company’s use of generative AI for security stands apart from what Microsoft and Google are doing in the space.
You recently said you see the cloud security opportunity as potentially being even larger in the future than endpoint security. Could you say more on what makes you think that?
Everybody’s in some stage of their journey [to the cloud]. No one is fully migrated to public cloud. So you get into these environments where part of what they do is on-premise, part of what they do is in the public cloud. And I think this partnership [with Wiz] actually helps bridge that gap. Because our workload protection isn’t designed to be only for the cutting-edge public cloud environment or containerized environments — you can actually deploy it on-prem as well. [And in] Linux environments, classic virtual machines. So it’s an amazing bridge for companies out there that are thinking, “Part of my stuff is on-prem, part of my stuff is in the cloud. How do I wrap my head around all of it?” I think that by joining forces, you get best-of-breed public cloud visibility, get the on-prem [coverage] with us. So it’s just a great way to accompany these customers in their journey to the public cloud.
