Armis Named Winner in 2019 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards

Company honored for standout achievements in Cybersecurity Product and Cybersecurity Company categories

PALO ALTO, Calif., March 1, 2019 — Armis, the enterprise IoT security company, today announced the Armis Agentless Security Platform was named a Silver award winner in the Internet of Things Security (IoT) product category, and a Bronze award winner in the Best Cybersecurity Company (between 50 to 99 employees) category by the 2019 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards.

This recognition adds to a list of prestigious honors for Armis this year. The company’s Vice President of Global Sales Mike Baker was named a 2019 CRN Channel Chief earlier this month, and the company was selected as an SC Media 2019 Trust Award Finalist in the Best Threat Detection category in January. These accolades recognize Armis’ work to address the growing security problem in the enterprise today.

Through its work with enterprise customers across a broad range of industries across the Fortune 1000 including healthcare, high-tech, manufacturing and more, Armis has found that businesses cannot see 40 percent of the connected devices in their environments. Armis solves this problem by easily and immediately identifying every device in an organization’s environment — all without using agents — and eliminating the risk they present.

“Organizations are more connected than ever. They need to know that unmanaged devices are active endpoints — like the smart TV in the conference room, the wireless printer, a badge reader, and Amazon Echo in an executive’s office, MRIs and CT scanners in the hospital, robots in an industrial factory. These always on, always connected devices have no security, so they are vulnerable to attackers who can disable them, breach networks, spread ransomware, or steal critical or sensitive information,” said Yevgeny Dibrov, co-founder and CEO of Armis. “Armis is helping companies across every vertical safeguard against these types of attacks, and winning in two categories in this year’s Cybersecurity Excellence Awards highlights how we’re addressing the need for comprehensive visibility over managed, unmanaged, and IoT devices in the enterprise.”

The 2019 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards, Cybersecurity Insiders’ award program in partnership with the Information Security Community on LinkedIn, honors individuals, products, and companies that demonstrate excellence, innovation, and leadership in information security. Results are determined based on strength of the nomination and a popular vote by members of the Information Security Community.
