Rippling + SentinelOne: autonomous endpoint security


Nov 10, 2021

Today’s cybersecurity landscape is growing more complex by the second. The volume and sophistication of malware continue to grow as bad actors evolve their tactics to claim ransoms, commit fraud, and cause widespread brand damage. Ransomware attacks happen every 11 seconds and are projected to claim $20 billion in 2021, a 225% increase over the year before. 

More than half of all cyberattacks are committed against small and medium-sized businesses, 60% of which go out of business within six months of the attack.

No organization, regardless of size or industry, is immune. It’s not just highly visible Fortune 500 companies that fall victim to cyberattacks. More than half of all cyberattacks are committed against small and medium-sized businesses, 60% of which go out of business within six months of the attack.  

The importance of an endpoint protection platform 

Endpoints, or end-user devices like laptops, are frequently exploited as entry points by malicious actors. This will only become more widespread as companies adopt a BYOD culture and transition to remote work. That’s why an endpoint protection platform (EPP) that can meet the highest threat detection standards is essential for any company with data distributed across employee devices. The EPP solution you implement must rapidly keep up in order to detect, analyze, block, and quarantine attacks before they inflict irreversible damage on your business. 

An EPP solution is especially important for any organization trying to meet SOC 2 compliance. Antivirus and endpoint security are critical to maintaining a strong cybersecurity program and being prepared for an audit. 

Introducing endpoint security with Rippling + SentinelOne 

We’re excited to provide Rippling customers a solution to protect against evolving cyber threats with SentinelOne. SentinelOne’s AI-powered platform makes precise, context-driven decisions autonomously without human intervention in order to detect emerging threats in real time. 

We chose to work with SentinelOne because of its track record protecting millions of endpoints for organizations of all industries and sizes, including Fortune 10 and Global 2000 companies. In 2021, Gartner named SentinelOne a leader in its Magic Quadrant for endpoint protection platforms.

SentinelOne offers superior malware detection for ransomware, phishing, network attacks, and web threats. Recent MITRE Engenuity ATT&CK Carbanak and FIN7 results show SentinelOne leading all other cybersecurity vendors with 100% visibility and zero missed detections.  

At Rippling, our team applies a rigorous evaluation to any integrations we’re considering for our customers. We’ve found SentinelOne to be innovative and extremely responsive in keeping up with the latest emerging threats as well as the latest versions of Mac and PC operating systems. In our own technical review, SentinelOne has shown very low CPU usage and false positives, which means it will not slow down the computers or impact your team’s productivity. 

Because Rippling operates from a single directory across IT and HR, customers will not only see which devices threats are detected on but also which employees are impacted. The ability to determine which departments or locations are most often impacted by threats will help you identify parts of the organization where more education on best data security practices may be needed.

With the Rippling + SentinelOne integration, customers will have the ability to: 

  • Access zero-touch installation and configuration, all handled by the Rippling Agent
  • View threats in Rippling by employee, department, or location
  • Take action on threats from Rippling, including kill, quarantine, or mark as benign  
  • Get 1-click remediation and rollback on unauthorized changes 
  • Push SentinelOne agent updates to devices automatically and on-demand
  • Generate antivirus enforcement reports for compliance audits 
  • Manage SentinelOne licensing, billing, and support through Rippling 

Better security and control with Rippling integrations 

Since Rippling integrates its core directory and device management solutions with SentinelOne, you’ll have a holistic view of your device inventory. We make it easy to keep your entire device fleet secure and protected by a best-in-class EPP.
