SentinelOne’s new partnership with Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One™ 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 cyber attacks at machine speed.
Now, Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One™ Team will be protected in the same way.
In addition to the mission-critical services that SentinelOne will provide, the Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One™ 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 One™ Team against advanced threats. Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One™ 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 One™ 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.
The two companies also share many of the same brand values: driven by technology, motivated by competition, and inspired by the desire to win.
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 One™ Team’s much-anticipated return to the top tier of global motorsport. We both share a relentless passion for innovation and 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 One™ 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 One™. 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.”
Otmar Szafnauer, Chief Executive Officer and Team Principal, Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One™ Team, said: “Since 2018 SentinelOne has demonstrated compelling attributes in securing Aston Martin Lagonda against an ever-evolving threat landscape. Now that the AI-powered cybersecurity leader is also partnered with Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One™ Team, those same compelling attributes will make a very real contribution to three vital on-track ‘esses’: safety, security and success.
“In a nutshell, SentinelOne will provide us with an AI platform that facilitates a situation wherein human beings are freer to make the right decisions; the corollary of that is that it will help prevent human error. That is going to be a game-changer for us. A Formula One™ team is a highly technical operation, handling literally millions of data points, engaging in split-second decision making, and introducing design and performance improvements on a 24-7 basis. State-of-the-art cybersecurity is crucial to that: it allows a Formula One™ team and its drivers to push the limits of performance, knowing that they are protected by the most advanced systems.”
Jefferson Slack, Managing Director – Commercial and Marketing, Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One™ Team, said: “This year is a pivotal moment in Aston Martin’s glorious history, as we return to the pinnacle of global motorsport, and SentinelOne is the ideal cybersecurity partner to help us achieve our goals.
“The two companies also share many of the same brand values: driven by technology, motivated by competition, and inspired by the desire to win. SentinelOne joins an already impressive roster of Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One™ Team partners, with more to come very soon. Watch this space.”
