Solution recognized for robust vulnerability and threat detection capabilities, in addition to being highly scalable and performant
SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Armis, the leading asset visibility and security company, today announced that it has been named a leader in the GigaOm Radar Report for Operational Technology (OT) Security.
“We’re proud to be recognized by GigaOm as a leader in operational technology security,” said Nadir Izrael, CTO and Co-founder, Armis. “It’s critical to secure the hardware and software systems that control physical devices and the industrial processes that our society depends on. Our mission is to ensure the availability, reliability and safety of these industrial control systems by mitigating cybersecurity risks that could otherwise lead to system failures, operational disruptions or physical damages.”
Within the GigaOm Radar for OT Security, Armis is:
- positioned in the Leaders ring, recognized for being a highly scalable platform and for the solution’s strong vulnerability management features, practical AI and dynamic segmentation.
- housed in the Innovation/Platform Play quadrant. The Innovation positioning highlights technical innovation while the Platform Play displays a broader platform focus and commitment to a comprehensive feature set.
- recognized as a Fast Mover when evaluating strategy and pace of innovation in this forward-looking assessment plotting the current projected positioning of each vendor over a 12- to 18-month window.
“Of all the vendors we looked at, Armis provided the fastest time to value and the widest coverage. Because it’s cloud-based, Armis is also simple to manage. All these factors made it easy to choose Armis, frankly,” said Mike Towers, Chief Security and Trust Officer, Takeda Pharmaceuticals. “Thanks to Armis, we’ve already uncovered a series of potential cyber risks. Without the Armis deployment, we never would have known they existed. It has already paid for itself.”
Armis is rated exceptional in the report for its:
- SaaS solution which serves large enterprises and manufacturers
- AI technologies for threat detection and rendezvous capabilities which GigaOm considered differentiating and critical in this sector
- product evaluation metrics, specifically scalability and compliance.
Additionally, Armis was recognized as the only OT vendor with FedRAMP Moderate ATO, ISO 27001, ISO 28018 Best Practices and SOC 2 Type II certifications.
“A key differentiator for Armis is its excellent knowledge base, which contains critical information about the billions of devices under its monitoring umbrella, including both the device profile and the expected behaviors of that device,” said Chris Ray, Research Analyst at GigaOm. “This solution is able to leverage that information to quickly identify unusual or abnormal conditions that legacy security tools (like an intrusion detection system, or IDS) would not be able to detect. Armis has a strong focus on healthcare, manufacturing and the public sector. From our point of view, the product complements existing OT security solutions.”
“From an overall security perspective, visibility into the manufacturing area was a big thing for us,” said Shem Stephens, Security Engineer at Colgate-Palmolive. “We needed a tool to see what our plants are doing in order to better support them in terms of their security posture— and Armis fit the bill perfectly. Our auditing team uses Armis to look into areas of opportunity at our plants. And systems engineers use Armis to see when a programmable logic controller (PLC) was last changed out. They have that information at their fingertips now. As our leadership continues to collaborate with Armis leadership, we can create these unique use cases that provide tremendous benefits for specific teams or individuals.”
