According to SentinelOne, S Ventures will be investing across all stages of the start-up 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.

The 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 and 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,” DJ Sampath, co-founder and CEO of Armorblox, explained.

"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," Paul Ayers, co-founder and CEO of Noetic Cyber, added.

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 aims to assist with foster innovation for portfolio companies by accelerating route-to-market and engineering scaling experience.

Start-ups gain enhanced exposure in the Singularity Marketplace and SentinelOne technology ecosystem, and benefit from joint marketing and SentinelOne Partner Network opportunities.

According to Rob Salvagno, SVP, corporate development and ventures, SentinelOne, S Ventures is an extension of their commitment to innovation and their "partner-first approach".

"SentinelOne has forged its own journey from start-up to hyper growth, 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," Salvagno said.
