Armis risk management solution hones in on entire attack surface

Armis has announced Armis Asset Vulnerability Management (AVM), a solution for risk-based vulnerability management that enables organisations to prioritise mitigation efforts across the entire asset attack surface. This includes IT, OT, ICS, IoMT, IIoT, cloud and cellular-IoT, managed or unmanaged.

This solution strengthens the Armis Platform, which provides unified asset visibility and superior security across the extended attack surface.

According to Armis, geopolitical instability associated with the Russian invasion of Ukraine, along with ongoing US and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) aid to Ukraine's defence efforts, has dramatically increased the possibility of cyber attacks against organisations operating in the US and NATO-aligned countries.

Therefore organisations must scale their ability to handle the growing number of vulnerabilities and threats that are putting their assets at risk, the company states.

However, today's organisations are overwhelmed by the number of different assets connected to their networks, and the severe vulnerabilities discovered almost on a daily basis. They are struggling to manage vulnerable assets at scale.

With the time it takes to exploit a new vulnerability dropping rapidly, combined with the lack of visibility into the asset attack surface, security and IT operations teams simply cannot address vulnerabilities as quickly as needed.

Armis CEO and co-founder Yevgeny Dibrov comments, “Effective vulnerability lifecycle management requires full visibility into the extended attack surface, and understanding the criticality of each asset to the business.

"With Armis AVM, customers can prioritise mitigation efforts across all assets, according to their criticality to the business, and optimise the use of limited resources to minimise exposure.

Dibrov says, "Only with Armiss Asset Vulnerability Management (AVM) solution and our award-winning Asset Intelligence Platform can they see all their associated levels of risk exposure across their entire enterprise. No other firm offers the rich asset intelligence and context that Armis provides.

"Armis Asset Vulnerability Management (AVM) is an add-on module that addresses the full vulnerability management lifecycle, beyond vulnerability scanning, calculating the risk for each asset, to help customers prioritise and manage their mitigation efforts."

According to the company, Armis AVM provides:

  • A complete, accurate view of assets and vulnerabilities in an environment, including managed and unmanaged assets
  • Risk-based Prioritisation based on the asset criticality and the severity of the vulnerabilities, to focus on what matters most
  • Security automation and orchestration to reduce mean time to remediation (MTTR)
  • A full vulnerability management lifecycle to track mitigation efforts over time with out-of-the-box reports and dashboards

The Armis Asset Intelligence Platform enables enterprises the ability to see and control their full cyber asset attack surface.

By providing complete asset discovery, real time cyber vulnerability and threat intelligence, and highlighting critical assets that should be prioritised, Armis enables enterprises to hone in on the assets that put their operations at risk, prioritise mitigation efforts to better manage their attack surface, and improve their overall risk posture, the company states.

Armis customers are from across all verticals and segments including governments, state, local, education (SLED), healthcare, critical infrastructure providers (CIP).
