SentinelOne’s partner program delivers partner organizations unmatched revenue growth opportunities. By partnering with SentinelOne, organizations differentiate themselves through offering customers a unified approach to endpoint protection (EPP), endpoint detection and response (EDR), cloud workload protection (CWPP), and IoT security via the SentinelOne AI-powered Singularity XDR platform. Aside from the technology differentiation in SentinelOne’s solution, the platform is fully API-driven offering resellers and systems integrators unparalleled levels of customization with other technologies, services, and workflows. Further, as enterprises shift their data centers, compute resources, and development processes to the cloud, SentinelOne’s container protection capabilities for Kubernetes position the channel to be highly relevant in this new age. As a 100% channel-focused company, SentinelOne has received a five-star rating in CRN’s Partner Program Guide for three years running with partners across the globe citing the technology, program, and team as key reasons to bring SentinelOne to customers.
“We’ve seen record growth in 2020 through the engagement we have with our partners, and we’re excited to have Ken join the team to drive our channel program into the future,” said Mark Parrinello, SVP, Worldwide Sales, SentinelOne. “The channel represents a highly strategic opportunity for SentinelOne to share its innovative approach to cybersecurity. Ken will be an important asset as we continue the momentum of our partner ecosystem.”
