Armis, the unified asset visibility and security platform provider, has announced the appointment of Michael Carpenter to Armis’ Board of Directors. As the President of Global Sales and Field Operations at Crowdstrike, he was instrumental in expanding the sales organisation worldwide and generating business growth at incredible scale. This led to its IPO in 2019 and he has maintained the company’s tremendous growth today. Prior to Crowdstrike, Carpenter served as president, Global Sales and Field Operations at Tanium and was the driving force in helping the company achieve global growth.
“Michael’s substantial experience and proven expertise in driving and maintaining significant revenue opportunities for the enterprise and profitable growth to IPO will be a key asset to the Armis executive team and myself as we continue our rapid expansion,” said Yevgeny Dibrov, co-founder and CEO at Armis. “We are pleased to add his industry leading expertise to our board.”
Over the past couple of years, Armis has dramatically expanded its global customer base across all verticals including manufacturing, healthcare, retail and finance resulting in revenue growing more than 750%, while the number of customers has grown over 425%. Armis was also recognised as a leader in connected medical device security by Forrester, a leader in OT Security by ISG, as well as the 2021 IoT Security Company of the Year by IoT Breakthrough Awards, and named in the Gartner 2020 Market Guide for Medical Device Security Solutions. Armis also launched its channel partner programme less than one year ago and already has 200 active partners. This year has started off incredibly well with increased demand for our award winning product offering resulting in dozens of Fortune 100 and Fortune 500 new customers.
“Armis has achieved impressive growth by addressing pain points for every enterprise as the risk of ransomware and ransom based attacks through insecure connected devices continues to rise, and it is poised to continue that growth at a very rapid rate in the years to come,” said Michael Carpenter. “I’m looking forward to utilising my industry knowledge to aid the business, working with the Armis team and my fellow board members to help the company rapidly scale its global presence.”
