Ivanti and SentinelOne start patch management collaboration

Den Bosch, August 4, 2022 — Ivanti, provider of the Ivanti Neuron automation platform that discovers, manages, secures and maintains IT assets from cloud to edge, and SentinelOne, provider of an autonomous cybersecurity platform, join forces to help organizations achieve a complete , implement a risk-based approach to patch management and better protect against cyber threats, including ransomware attacks. Ivanti and SentinelOne will integrate their technologies, Ivanti Neurons for Patch Management and SentinelOne’s Singularity XDR platform, to deliver autonomous vulnerability assessment, prioritization and remediation.
Patch management is still a major challenge for many organizations. Security and IT teams often struggle with vulnerability mapping and software updates, patch delays, fragmented processes, disparate technology stacks and disjointed teams. According to a recent Ivanti survey, 71 percent of IT and security professionals say they find patching too complex, cumbersome and time-consuming. And 53 percent say that organizing and prioritizing critical vulnerabilities takes up most of their time. As a result, many security and IT teams only patch new vulnerabilities or vulnerabilities disclosed in the National Vulnerability Database (NVD). However, this can lead to gaps in organizations’ security, as NVD is currently missing more than 20 percent of all common vulnerabilities.

Organizations are at greater risk of cyber attacks due to the outdated vulnerability management processes. Today, unpatched vulnerabilities in applications and operating systems remain one of the most prominent attack vectors exploited by hackers. Attackers are able to exploit vulnerabilities faster than ever before to attack security vulnerabilities to cause maximum damage. In fact, the Ransomware Index Report Q1 2022 shows that increased levels of ransomware groups have led to vulnerabilities being exploited by vendors as early as eight days after publication. This means that any vulnerability is a race against time for organizations to protect all assets from threat actors.

The partnership between Ivanti and SentinelOne aims to address these challenges by enabling organizations to further secure endpoints, improve cyber hygiene and reduce attack surfaces by detecting and remediating vulnerabilities faster. And all this within the entire organization and with a single click. The integrated solution gives security and IT teams context and adaptive intelligence around the vulnerabilities in their organization and then enables them to rapidly remediate them. Ivanti and SentinelOne help organizations significantly reduce the average time it takes to discover, detect and remediate cyber threats. This is especially true for critical vulnerabilities used by ransomware.

“We are pleased to partner with SentinelOne to help organizations improve their cyber hygiene and become more resilient to cyber attacks,” said Nayaki Nayyar, President and Chief Product Officer at Ivanti. “Our AI-based Ivanti Neurons for Patch Management solution can identify exposures and active threats, provide early warning of vulnerabilities, predict attacks and prioritize remediation activities. In addition, we offer agent-based and agentless patching and support for a broad catalog of more than 350 business applications. These advanced capabilities significantly improve the efficiency and effectiveness of security and IT teams in assessing and deploying security patches, as well as combating vulnerabilities used as weapons by cybercriminals.”

“Autonomous vulnerability assessment and remediation is a necessity as the scale and level of cyberattacks grow,” said Nicholas Warner, president of security at SentinelOne. “Singularity XDR helps organizations automate their cybersecurity for endpoint, cloud and identity. In partnership with Ivanti, we deliver an autonomous, risk-based approach to cyber security to our customers. Security teams benefit from automation so they can continuously identify their exposure to vulnerabilities and mitigate those risks with lightning speed.”

“The partnership between SentinelOne and Ivanti is a great example of how Ivanti partners with leading cybersecurity ISVs to deliver patch management to their customers,” said Mark Stevens, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Strategic Alliances at Ivanti. “We are pleased to enter into this relationship with SentinelOne and deliver automated patching to SentinelOne’s customers and partners. This further validates our robust set of endpoint security solutions that ISVs provide, enabling them to augment their own solutions by leverage our APIs and SDKs for patch management, discovery, remote management, application control, and device control.”
