SentinelOne Acquires Scalyr To Up Security Analytics

SentinelOne acquires Scalyr to ingest, correlate, search and action data from any source, delivering the industry’s most advanced integrated XDR platform for real time threat mitigation across the enterprise and cloud.

“Through our acquisition of Scalyr, SentinelOne is solving one of the industry’s biggest data challenges for delivering fully integrated XDR capabilities. Scalyr’s big data technology is perfect for the use cases of XDR, ingesting terabytes of data across multiple systems and correlating it at machine speed so security professionals have actionable intelligence to autonomously detect, respond and mitigate threats. This is a dramatic leap forward for our industry, while other next gen products are entirely reliant on SIEM integrations or OEMs for point in time data correlation and response, SentinelOne uniquely provides customers with proactive operational insights from a security first perspective. The combination of Scalyr’s data analytics with our industry leading AI capabilities ushers in a new era of machine speed prevention, detection and response to attacks across the enterprise,” said Tomer Weingarten, Co-Founder and CEO, SentinelOne.

Through this acquisition, SentinelOne sets the bar for the XDR market and solves challenges in delivering a fully integrated XDR platform: ingesting and actioning all operational data in real time from a security first perspective.

“This strategic acquisition accelerates SentinelOne’s unrivaled product innovation while maintaining a sustainable growth model. Scalyr’s technology solves one of the biggest operational challenges vendors face balancing the cost structure of ingesting and storing massive amounts of data,” said Nicholas Warner, COO, SentinelOne adding, “Delivering the industry’s most advanced and integrated XDR platform bolsters our hypergrowth path while building a long term, sustainable business that delivers value to customers and shareholders.”

According to Gartner, “Building an effective XDR is more challenging than it might seem. Lack of data collection, common data formats and APIs, as well as products built on legacy database structures, make it difficult to integrate security tools even within the same vendor’s product portfolio.”

“We built Scalyr to solve critical data challenges for a cloud-first world. I’m excited for the Scalyr team to become part of SentinelOne and solve one of the world’s most pressing big data problems cyber security,” noted Newman, Co-Founder and Chairman, Scalyr.

By eliminating data schema requirements from the ingestion process and index limitations from querying, Scalyr can ingest massive amounts of machine and application data in real time, enabling organizations to analyze, query and action data with unparalleled speeds and cost effectiveness. This provides SentinelOne customers with autonomous, real time and index free threat analysis and mitigation beyond the endpoint across the entire enterprise and cloud attack surface, something not possible with today’s human powered and schema constrained cyber security products, explains the agency.

Christine Heckart, CEO, Scalyr commented, “The security and data analytics industries are uniquely related, and this acquisition provides SentinelOne the opportunity to set the agenda as the XDR category leader. Scalyr’s current customers will benefit from expanded investment, and SentinelOne’s customers will enjoy Scalyr’s big data capabilities within the Singularity platform.”
