6 Essential Uses Cases: SentinelOne Singularity XDR Integrations

The landscape of cybersecurity threats is continually evolving and expanding. With the increasing proliferation of attack vectors, ranging from endpoints to networks and the cloud, many enterprises adopt individual best-in-class solutions to address specific vulnerabilities associated with each vector. 

However, despite these efforts, most point tools operate independently, failing to connect the dots across the entire technology stack. Consequently, security data is collected and analyzed in isolation, lacking context or correlation, leading to gaps in what security teams can perceive and detect. Worse, the manual investigation process is often slow and cumbersome, causing security teams to lag in containing and remedying threats.

Fortunately, there are solutions for integrating and automating your security solutions. In this post, we discuss how SentinelOne Singularity XDR can become a key asset in your defenses against cyber threats.

What is SentinelOne Singularity XDR?

The SentinelOne platform, known as Singularity XDR, is a customizable security suite designed to protect endpoints, cloud surfaces, and Internet of Things (IoT) devices.

The platform comprises essential components such as Endpoint Protection Platform (EPP), Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR), IoT Control, and Workload Protection. Notably, SentinelOne Singularity streamlines traditionally separate functionalities into a unified agent and platform architecture.

What's it like to integrate with SentinelOne Singularity XDR?

SentinelOne Singularity XDR seamlessly integrates and expands the capability for detection and response across various security layers. It offers security teams centralized, end-to-end visibility into the entire enterprise, along with robust analytics and automated response mechanisms spanning the complete technology stack. 

Through Singularity XDR, customers gain unified and proactive security measures to protect the entirety of their technology stack. This empowers security analysts to efficiently identify and halt attacks in progress before they can adversely impact the business.

Use cases

1. Enhance visibility across all aspects with cross-stack insight. Singularity XDR seamlessly integrates structured, unstructured, and semi-structured data in real time from diverse technology products or platforms, eliminating data silos and eradicating critical blind spots.

This solution empowers security teams to access data collected by various security solutions across multiple platforms, including endpoints, cloud workloads, IoT devices, networks, and more, all consolidated within a single dashboard. Furthermore, Singularity XDR enables analysts to leverage insights derived from aggregating event information from various solutions into a unified and contextualized "incident." Serving as a central enforcement and analytics hub, it provides complete enterprise visibility and autonomous capabilities for prevention, detection, and response, offering organizations a unified approach to addressing cybersecurity challenges.

2. Reveal covert attacks through cross-stack correlation with SentinelOne's patented Storyline™ technology. This cutting-edge solution offers real-time, automated machine-built context and correlation across the enterprise security stack, transforming disconnected data into cohesive narratives. 

The Storyline™ technology automatically weaves together related events and activities, assigning them a unique identifier within a storyline. This enables security teams to grasp the full context of incidents within seconds, eliminating the need for manual correlation that would typically take hours, days, or even weeks when linking events and logs manually.

SentinelOne’s behavioral engine actively monitors all system activities across your environment, encompassing file/registry changes, service start/stop, inter-process communication, and network activity. This vigilant approach allows for the detection of techniques and tactics indicative of malicious behavior, effectively identifying fileless attacks, lateral movement, and actively executing rootkits.

Singularity XDR, an integral part of SentinelOne's suite, also automatically correlates related activities into unified alerts, offering campaign-level insight. This capability empowers enterprises to correlate events across different vectors, streamlining the triage of alerts into a single incident. The result is a proactive, efficient, and comprehensive cybersecurity solution.

3. Enhance threat detection with automated threat intelligence integration. Singularity XDR seamlessly incorporates threat intelligence from both leading third-party feeds and our proprietary sources. This integration automatically enriches endpoint incidents with real-time threat intelligence, providing security teams with additional contextual risk scores for Indicators of Compromise (IOCs) such as IPs, hashes, vulnerabilities, and domains.

For instance, through our integration with Recorded Future and its access to over 800,000 sources, threats are auto-enriched, significantly expediting threat investigation and triage capabilities for our customers. Additionally, users can tap into a curated query library of hunts developed by SentinelOne's research team, ensuring ongoing evaluation of new methodologies to uncover emerging IOCs and Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures (TTPs).

4. Automate responses seamlessly across diverse domains with Singularity XDR. Analysts can effortlessly initiate all necessary actions to automatically resolve threats with a single click – no scripting required. This can be done on one, several, or all devices across the entire estate. With just one click, analysts can execute remediation actions such as network quarantine, auto-deployment of an agent on a rogue workstation, or automated policy enforcement across cloud environments.

Singularity XDR goes further by allowing customers to harness the insights provided by Storyline for creating custom automated detection rules tailored to their specific environment using Storyline Active-Response (STAR). This feature empowers enterprises to integrate their business context, customizing the EDR solution to their unique needs.

Through Storyline Active-Response (STAR) custom detection rules, users can transform queries into automated hunting rules that trigger alerts and responses upon detecting matches. STAR offers the flexibility to create custom alerts and responses tailored to the specifics of your environment – for instance, automatically terminating a process to swiftly detect and contain threats across your entire system.

5. Seamlessly integrate with various ecosystem technologies through SentinelOne's user-friendly approach.In your Security Operations Center (SOC), where multiple security tools and technologies may be deployed, SentinelOne provides an expanding array of integrations with third-party systems like SIEM and SOAR via the Singularity Marketplace. Singularity Apps, hosted on our scalable serverless Function-as-a-Service cloud platform, effortlessly connect through API-enabled IT and Security controls with just a few clicks.

The Singularity Marketplace, which is another key part of our platform, ensures that once the integration is configured, its impact becomes immediately visible within the product. This eradicates the need for complex coding, simplifying, and scaling automation across vendors. Security teams can efficiently determine the best course of action to remediate and thwart high-velocity threats by orchestrating a unified response among security tools in different domains.

6. Elevate your security team's capabilities and boost SOC efficiency with Singularity XDR. This unified platform expands threat detection, investigation, response, and hunting, offering:

A singular origin for prioritized alerts that captures and standardizes data from various sources.

A unified overview to swiftly comprehend the development of attacks across different security layers.

Unified platform for prompt response and proactive threat hunting.


The use cases mentioned above are simply a sampling of the many powerful workflows you can leverage when integrating this app into your existing cybersecurity toolset. After all, a well-integrated security landscape is always essential for rapidly responding to the threats of today and becoming better prepared for those of tomorrow.
