Last week, Armis announced Armis Asset Vulnerability Management (AVM), the only 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. The new solution strengthens the existing Armis Platform, which provides unified asset visibility and superior security across the extended attack surface.
Geopolitical instability associated with the Russian invasion of Ukraine, along with ongoing U.S. and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) aid to Ukraine’s defence efforts, has dramatically increased the possibility of cyberattacks against organisations operating in the U.S. and NATO-aligned countries. As such, organisations must scale their ability to handle the growing number of vulnerabilities and threats that are putting their assets at risk.
However, today’s organisations are overwhelmed by the number of different assets connected to their networks, particularly when considering the growing severe vulnerabilities being discovered. 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.
“Effective vulnerability lifecycle management requires full visibility into the extended attack surface, and understanding the criticality of each asset to the business,” said Yevgeny Dibrov, CEO & Co-Founder, Armis. “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.”
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.
AVM’s capabilities include:
- A complete, accurate view of all assets and vulnerabilities in your 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 quickly 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.
