Factors at Play for Q4 Results
SentinelOne’s expanding and diversified customer base is expected to have aided the company’s top line in the fiscal fourth quarter. At the end of third-quarter fiscal 2023, the customer count grew 55% year over year to more than 9,250 customers.
SentinelOne’s fiscal fourth-quarter performance is expected to have benefited from the partnership with Wiz, a leader in cloud security, to deliver end-to-end cloud security. Collaborations and partnerships are expected to have helped SentinelOne increase customer value in the to-be-reported quarter.
SentinelOne’s top-line growth is likely to reflect collaborations with Revelstoke, Fletch, Code42 and KnowBe4 adding new use cases to the Singularity marketplace expanding Singularity XDR’s Security Orchestration, Automation, and Response; insider threat protection; automated prioritization; and end-user training capabilities.
However, pronounced macroeconomic challenges are expected to have impacted the timing and the size of new enterprise deals in the fiscal fourth quarter.
