Additional Information:

When you get involved in dissecting such applications you really get involved in seeing what applications do and how they behave, looking deeper into this application it looks like it captures users data that maybe collected or such things as a key logger maybe, the registry keys for the SentinelOne Logger are:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\WMI\Autologger\SentinelLogger
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\WMI\Autologger\SentinelLogSession0
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\WMI\Autologger\SentinelStatic
The application stores logs in this location but not sure what the data contains C:\ProgramData\Sentinel\logs\

It’s interesting that Windows was unable to verify the image integrity  of the file SentinelRemediation.exe.
