What's Armis about?



Armis® is the leading agentless, enterprise-class device security platform, designed to protect organizations from cyberthreats created by the onslaught of unmanaged and IoT devices.  Fortune 1000 companies trust the real-time and continuous protection of Armis to see and control all managed, unmanaged, un-agentable and IoT devices – from traditional devices like laptops and smartphones to new smart devices like smart TVs, webcams, printers, HVAC systems, industrial control systems and PLCs, medical devices and more.  Armis provides passive and unparalleled asset inventory, risk management, and detection & response.  Core to the platform is the Armis Device Knowledgebase.  It is the world’s largest cloud-based, crowd-source device behavior knowledgebase tracking 230 millions devices, and growing.  Armis tracks device behavior, connections, and history, compare real-time device behavior to “known-good” baseline, identifying policy violations, misconfigurations, or abnormal behavior.  When a device acts suspiciously or maliciously, Armis can disconnect or quarantine the device.

Asset Inventory

Visibility is an essential component of any security strategy for every organization. And if your organization needs to comply with frameworks like PCI, HIPAA, NIST, or the CIS Critical Security Controls, you are required to maintain an accurate inventory of hardware and software in your environment. That’s easy to say, but much harder to do. Armis discovers and classifies every managed, unmanaged, and IoT device in your environment including servers, laptops, smartphones, VoIP phones, smart TVs, IP cameras, printers, HVAC controls, medical devices, industrial controls, and more.

Armis can even identify off-network devices using Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and other IoT protocols in your environment — a capability no other security product offers without additional hardware. The comprehensive device inventory that Armis generates includes critical information like device manufacturer, model, serial number, location, username, operating system, installed applications, and connections made over time. In addition to discovering and classifying a device, Armis calculates its risk score based on factors like vulnerabilities, known attack patterns, and the behaviors observed of each device on your network. This risk score helps your security team understand your attack surface and meet compliance with regulatory frameworks that require identification and prioritization of vulnerabilities.
Risk Management

Armis goes beyond device and risk identification. The Armis Threat Detection Engine continuously monitors the behavior of every device on your network and in your airspace for behavioral anomalies. Working with our Device Knowledgebase, Armis compares the real-time behavior of each device with:

● Historical device behavior
● The behavior of similar devices in your environment
● The behavior of similar devices in other environments
● Common attack techniques
● Information from threat intelligence feeds
With these types of critical device and behavioral insights, Armis is uniquely positioned to take action to identify threats and attacks.
Detection & Response

When Armis detects a threat, it can alert your security team and trigger automated action to stop an attack. Through integration with your switches and wireless LAN controllers, as well as your existing security enforcement points like Cisco and Palo Alto Networks firewalls, and network access control (NAC) products such as Cisco ISE and Aruba ClearPass, Armis can restrict access or quarantine suspicious or malicious devices. This automation gives you peace of mind that an attack on any device — managed or unmanaged — will be stopped, even if your security team is busy with other priorities.

Frictionless Integration

Armis requires no agents or additional hardware to deploy, so it can be up and running in minutes to hours. Not only does it integrate with your firewall or NAC, but Armis also integrates with your security management systems like your SIEM, ticketing systems, and asset databases to allow these systems and incident responders to leverage the rich information Armis provides.
