SentinelOne Unveils Generative AI-Powered Threat Hunting Tool
The new offering is the ‘first-of-its-kind’ in cybersecurity and will allow security teams to use generative AI to improve their productivity and uncover more threats, according to SentinelOne.
SentinelOne Embraces Generative AI
For years, SentinelOne has brought a focus on enabling greater AI-powered automation in cybersecurity, including in its core areas of endpoint detection and response (EDR) and now, in extended detection and response (XDR). But with the arrival of generative AI, SentinelOne is also among the first security vendors to unveil significant functionality powered by this area of technology. On Monday, in connection with RSA Conference 2023, SentinelOne announced a new threat hunting tool that utilizes generative AI in an effort to dramatically improve productivity for security analysts.
SentinelOne is calling the offering for its Singularity platform the “first-of-its-kind” in cybersecurity and a major advancement for cyber defense. And looking ahead, it will become even more critical to bring generative AI functionality to security teams due to the fact that adversaries, too, are upping their game with the help of OpenAI’s ChatGPT and other chatbots, according to SentinelOne.
With the new SentinelOne technology, “I think security overall will get better, because we’re able to look at more things and not miss important threats,” said Ric Smith, chief product and technology officer at SentinelOne, in an interview with CRN. “But longer term, this is really about taking the technology that we believe that our adversaries are going to be using — and we’ve seen this already — and putting that in the hands of our customers so that they can play adequate defense.” Without a doubt, there’s going to be an “arms race between offense and defense” when it comes to using generative AI, Smith said.
What follows are the key things to know about SentinelOne’s new generative AI-powered threat hunting tool.
