Cybersecurity platform firm SentinelOne has signed a distribution agreement with Netpoleon, a value-added distributor of network security products in the Asia Pacific Japan region.

The partnership immediately follows SentinelOne's appointment of Evan Davidson as vice president, Asia Pacific Japan, and supports the company's vision of accelerating APJ market traction.

"APJ is a high-growth region for SentinelOne and expanding and scaling our partner landscape is a top priority,” Davidson says.

“Working with a partner that understands our needs and can provide access and reach across a diverse region with strong security expertise, makes partnering with Netpoleon compelling and a logical choice for our next phase of growth," he says.

Netpoleon is headquartered in Singapore and holds offices across Australia, Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, and Japan.

"The company's long-established success in partnering with leading cybersecurity solution providers to deliver value-add offerings and professional advisory services to resellers and customers across the region makes Netpoleon a natural fit for SentinelOne's continued APJ expansion," the company says.

"SentinelOne's autonomous solution, capable of defeating every attack at every stage of the threat lifecycle, further strengthens Netpoleon's extensive product portfolio for the region's leading enterprises."

 Max Foo, COO, Netpoleon, says SentinelOne addresses the recent spike in high profile cyber breach cases with its breadth of cutting edge offerings.

“It also plays an integral part of our security channel strategy moving forward, complementing Vectra AI NDR and our SIEM solutions across APJ, as part of the SOC Triad solution offering," he says.

 “SentinelOne is a crucial addition to our growing portfolio and rapidly expanding team in ANZ, at a time where consolidation of vendors is rife and go-to-market methods are challenged,” adds Paul Lim, regional director, ANZ, Netpoleon.

“We will be dedicating our efforts to growing the channel for SentinelOne, alongside the complementary solutions we distribute. Initially we plan to run several channel enablement workshops and a major virtual channel event.

SentinelOne has expanded from cloud-native endpoint protection to a full cybersecurity platform that protects and monitors every asset in the enterprise.

"SentinelOne seamlessly unifies endpoint protection (EPP), endpoint detection and response (EDR) with ActiveEDR, IoT control with SentinelOne Ranger, and container and cloud-native workload protection into the Singularity Platform for an unprecedented level of autonomous protection."

In February 2020, SentinelOne raised $200 million in Series E funding at a valuation of $1.1 billion.

Over the past 12 months, SentinelOne was the only cybersecurity company included on the 2020 CNBC Disruptor 50 list, and named the seventh fastest growing company in North America, the fastest growing in Silicon Valley, and was the only cybersecurity company recognised in the top 10 of the Deloitte Technology Fast 500. It was also the only endpoint protection company included on the CB Insights AI 100 ranking.
