SentinelOne is a security platform designed to protect entire networks by preventing, detecting and responding to a variety of security attacks across all entry points, including the computers used to access the network. 

SentinelOne is an advanced anti-malware program which uses the behavior of malware in addition to file signatures to detect and protect against executable and file-less based malware/ransomware, browser and document exploits, scripts, and credential/memory scrapers.
