Armis is a Representative Vendor in the Gartner® Market Guide for Vulnerability Assessment

We are proud to share that Armis has been named a Representative Vendor in the new Gartner Market Guide for Vulnerability Assessment. In June 2022, we released our risk-based vulnerability management solution as a new module of the Armis Asset Intelligence and Security Platform. In just over a year, Armis Asset Vulnerability Management (AVM) has been widely adopted by organizations needing to prioritize their mitigation efforts across the entire attack surface, including IT, OT, ICS, IoMT, IIoT, Cloud and cellular-IoT, managed or unmanaged. With this Market Guide, Gartner confirms that vulnerability prioritization is “of prime importance for effective risk and threat reduction” and “directly aids in the reduction of an organization’s attack surface.” By including Armis in this market guide, Gartner recognizes Armis’ strong vulnerability prioritization and management capabilities.

According to Gartner, “VA (Vulnerability Assessment) is a mature market and is a mandatory component of information security management and regulatory frameworks.” However, Vulnerability Assessment vendors “are now improving only incrementally and using acquisitions in some cases for feature expansion in recent years” and “face credible competition from vulnerability prioritization technology (VPT) vendors.” The Market Guide goes on to explain that “VPT tools have significantly changed the VA market because they address critical gaps in VA solutions in how they can better postprocess the often sheer volume of telemetry produced by VA solutions. Most VPT tools started with a focus on prioritization but are now evolving into vulnerability intelligence tools to fuel various aspects of VM.”

Armis Asset Vulnerability Management is an add-on module to the Armis Asset Intelligence and Security Platform, our agentless asset security and management platform that discovers 100% of an organization’s managed and unmanaged connected assets. Our platform adds rich context to each asset, enabling teams to understand the asset’s location, the purpose of the asset, who is using the asset, and then track its behavior. To detect behavior anomalies, Armis leverages our Collective Asset Intelligence Engine—the industry’s first collective engine that tracks and analyzes attributes of over 3 billion assets worldwide. With the addition of the AVM module, Vulnerability Management teams can efficiently and intelligently manage the mass of collected telemetry to make real-time decisions on protecting their organization.

Unlike traditional scanners that just assign CVE scores AVM eliminates tiresome and unwieldy manual tasks, visibility gaps, and guesswork so the Vulnerability Management teams can focus on the critical vulnerabilities that put their organization at risk. Our unique context and risk-based approach enables those teams to quickly identify and remediate the vulnerabilities that attackers are most likely to exploit and require immediate attention.

Vulnerability Prioritization and Remediation is solving real problems for Armis customers. Avi Solomon, CIO of  Rumberger|Kirk Corporate Law Firm, explains in a case study that “with Armis’s vulnerability management capability, I can feel comfortable if somebody plugs something in tomorrow, I will know about it, and I will know what level of risk it brings.” When clients ask Rumberger|Kirk how often the firm scans for vulnerabilities during the year, Solomon is able to confidently respond with, “We do that with Armis 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.”
