Protecting mobile devices with SentinelOne.


SentinelOne Mobile Agent

This week SentinelOne announced Singularity Mobile, a new AI-powered mobile security solution delivering autonomous threat protection, detection, and response for iOS, Android, and Chrome OS devices.


In this blog post we dive into Singularity Mobile, answering some of the key questions on the latest SentinelOne offering.



Why do you need to protect mobile devices?

The past year has taught us that employees need to be able to work from anywhere, and this includes from mobile devices. This means there is a greater number of devices at risk to security incidents. In the UK Cyber Security Breaches Survey 2021, 68% of medium sized businesses use insecure smart devices in work settings. On top of this, Google’s Project Zero reported so far in 2021 Android and iOS have accounted for 31% of all zero-day, in the wild vulnerabilities used in real attacks against real users (18 out of 58). This is a sharp increase compared 2020 where mobile-only accounted for 11% (3 out of 26).


What is Singularity Mobile?

Singularity Mobile brings local, behavioural AI-driven mobile threat defence (MTD) to iOS, Android, and ChromeOS devices. The on-device agent protects against and detects both mobile malware and phishing, whether known or unknown, as well as MITM attacks.

SentinelOne have partnered with Zimperium for Singularity Mobile, allowing SentinelOne to address the complete endpoint attack surface, delivering critical security controls to security teams and protection to employees no matter where they are working.


What Mobile Device Management products does Singularity Mobile integrate with?

Although MDM products handle mobile device policy, compliance, software deployment, and system maintenance, organisations still need to compliment their MDM with MTD to provide mobile protection.


Singularity Mobile works with or without an MDM and integrates with leading MDM solutions such as:

  • Intune / Microsoft Endpoint Manager

  • VMWare WorkspaceOne

  • Ivanti

  • Jamf

  • Citrix XenMobile

  • Blackberry MDM

  • SOTI MobiControl

What are the key features of Singularity Mobile?

  • Powerful behavioural models detect and protect against zero-day mobile malware and phishing attacks

  • Eliminates risks from jailbroken and rooted devices

  • Protection from MITM attacks including rogue wireless and secure communications tampering

  • Continually learns to tackle tomorrow’s threats

How does Singularly Mobile protect Chromebooks?

Chrome OS offers basic protection against commodity malware but lacks advanced

protection. While Chromebooks update automatically, patching does not protect against

unknown exploits. Although websites and apps are sandboxed, sandboxes can be escaped. While verified boot clears tampering, advanced attacks can persist across reboots. Singularity Mobile protects each of these scenarios and more.
