$100M Fund to Advance Enterprise Cybersecurity and Data Innovation
SentinelOne (NYSE: S), an autonomous cybersecurity platform company, today announced the launch of S Ventures, a $100 million fund to invest in the next generation of category-defining security and data companies.
“SentinelOne pioneered a data-driven approach to delivering autonomous cybersecurity. Our early days were defined by the support of our investors, who saw the power and promise of our vision. Today, I’m proud to see SentinelOne invest in future disruptors, doing our part to continue a legacy of innovation,” said Tomer Weingarten, CEO, SentinelOne. “Our focus on cybersecurity and data innovation brings SentinelOne’s technology and engineering expertise, go-to-market, and customer base to S Ventures portfolio companies. We’re committed to investing in innovation that solves mission-critical problems for the enterprise – and digital society at large.”
S Ventures will invest across all stages of the startup lifecycle with a focus on security and data companies that bring innovative use cases to the Singularity Marketplace, the company’s open application ecosystem allowing security teams to extend Singularity XDR use cases. New S Ventures investments include:
- Armorblox, a disruptive API-based Email Security platform that leverages machine learning and natural language processing to detect and prevent sophisticated threats.
- Noetic Cyber, the Continuous Cyber Asset Management & Controls Platform that provides teams with unified visibility and actionable insights into the security posture of all assets across their cloud and on-premises systems.
“With the investment from S Ventures, and our integration with the Singularity XDR platform, detailed threat intelligence about email-based attacks and data exfiltration attempts that Armorblox stops can now be used to automate further investigation and response,” said DJ Sampath, Co-founder & CEO, Armorblox.
“Together with S Ventures and Singularity XDR, we’re empowering security teams with critical insights and asset intelligence to help them better manage their attack surface and reduce cyber risk," said Paul Ayers, Co-founder & CEO, Noetic Cyber.
These investments join S Ventures portfolio companies Torq, a no-code security automation platform accelerating complex threat response workflows, and Laminar, a platform providing full data observability across the entire public cloud to reduce the attack surface and detect real-time data leaks.
In addition to providing strategic capital, SentinelOne will help foster innovation for portfolio companies by accelerating route-to-market and engineering scaling experience. Startups gain enhanced exposure in the Singularity Marketplace and SentinelOne technology ecosystem, and benefit from joint marketing and SentinelOne Partner Network opportunities.
“S Ventures is an extension of our commitment to innovation and our partner-first approach,” said Rob Salvagno, SVP, Corporate Development & Ventures, SentinelOne. “SentinelOne has forged its own journey from startup to hypergrowth, and we are now leveraging our experience to partner with the next generation of security and data companies that are charting their own paths today.”
