Samsung SDS Invests in EDR Specialist SentinelOne

Samsung SDS has made a strategic investment in US-based SentinelOne, the company has announced. The investment was made through the Samsung Venture Investment business unit.

SentinelOne specializes in Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) technology, offering a security solution that is designed to defend against digital attacks. Its platform is notable for using Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning technology to detect new kind of malware and hack attacks, and to block them and delete ransomware.

In announcing its investment in SentinelOne, Samsung SDS explained that it is “expanding its business to customers in need of endpoint protection to devices such as PC with SentinelOne’s EDR solution.”

The investment complements other recent strategic investments in US-based API specialist Jitterbit and Israel-based ‘serverless’ data science platform provider Iguazio.

Samsung SDS has not disclosed details concerning the size of its investment in SentinelOne; but in any case, given the company’s expertise in sophisticated security solutions like NexSign – a mobile biometric authentication technology – the investment can be seen as a validation of SentinelOne’s technology.
