SentinelOne is here!

SentinelOne at UCLA

Learn how SentinelOne's next-generation endpoint protection can benefit your department.

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. Departments will be provisioned an instance in the SentinelOne cloud console to view and manage malware threats within their environment.

How much does it cost?

  • SentinelOne is being funded by the IT Security Office, so there is zero cost to you.

On which Operating Systems does it run?

  • SentinelOne offers clients for Windows, MacOS and Linux, including many no longer supported OSs such as Windows XP. If you would like to find out if a specific OS is supported, contact the IT Security Office.

Can I install it on workstations, servers and VDI environments?

  • Yes, all of these environments are supported.

Do I need to uninstall my old antivirus program?

  • SentinelOne works as a complete replacement for traditional anti-malware solutions or in conjunction with them. The choice is yours.

Will SentinelOne protect me against ransomware?

  • Yes, SentinelOne will recognize the behaviors of ransomware and prevent it from encrypting files. On Windows, there is a rollback feature, which allows the return of files to a known good state if the ransomware does somehow manage to encrypt files. 
  • Additionally, if SentinelOne is not able to recover the encrypted files, they will pay $1,000 per encrypted machine, up to $1M.

Will SentinelOne slow down my system?

  • The SentinelOne client uses a small amount of system resources and should not impact your daily activities.

Does SentinelOne protect me while I am disconnected from the internet (such as during traveling)?

  • Yes, the client will protect against malware threats when the device is disconnected from the internet. However, the administrative visibility and functionality in the console will be lost until the device is back online.
