SentinelOne’s new partnership with Aston Martin Cognizant Formula 1 complements the leading cybersecurity company’s ongoing partnership with Aston Martin Lagonda.
In 2018, following an exhaustive competitive tender process, Aston Martin Lagonda selected SentinelOne’s Singularity XDR platform to revolutionise its approach to cybersecurity and protect every Aston Martin endpoint, IoT device, and cloud workload with AI-powered technology that prevents and adapts to cyberattacks at machine speed.
Now, Aston Martin Cognizant Formula 1 Team will be protected in the same way.
In addition to the mission-critical services that SentinelOne will provide, the Aston Martin Cognizant Formula 1 Team has acquired equity in SentinelOne, in a highly innovative and ground-breaking deal that binds the two companies together in a way that will facilitate an exceptional and game-changing level of technical co-operation.
SentinelOne’s Singularity XDR platform continuously evolves to proactively secure global enterprises and Aston Martin Cognizant Formula 1 Team against advanced threats. Aston Martin Cognizant Formula 1 Team handles huge amounts of data across a very complex infrastructure. In order to stay competitive, all of that information must be fully secured.
As Official Cybersecurity Partner, SentinelOne empowers Aston Martin Cognizant Formula 1 Team with adaptive cybersecurity that blocks threats in real-time. In so doing, SentinelOne is protecting the team – both on and off of track – from every attack at every stage of the threat life cycle.
Tomer Weingarten, Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder, SentinelOne, said: “The parallels between Aston Martin and SentinelOne are strong, and it is an honour to support the Aston Martin Cognizant Formula 1 Team’s much-anticipated return to the top tier of global motorsport. We both share a relentless passion for innovation and a desire to disrupt the status quo and an appreciation of the significance of speed. These core principles are at the soul of this partnership and represent the power of Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One™ Team and SentinelOne.”
Lawrence Stroll, Chairman, Aston Martin Cognizant Formula 1 Team, said: “I am delighted that SentinelOne will be one of Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One™ Team’s key partners as we take Aston Martin back where it belongs, the top table of international motorsport, namely Formula 1. Tomer Weingarten [Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder, SentinelOne] and I have enjoyed our discussions, and it is clear that our two companies have much in common. Ours will be a very real partnership, delivering genuine performance enhancements to the safe and smooth running of our team.”
