Custom Risk-Factor Types

Armis Centrix™ comes with a multitude of out-of-box native risk identification capabilities. These “Risk Factors” are centered around device behaviors that are considered a security risk, such a utilization of obsolete protocols or authentication via default credentials, or inherent device properties that pose a security risk, like an End-of-Life Operating System.

However we also acknowledge the unique nature of each customer environment and the fact that every organization operates within distinct challenges. The demand for a more tailored approach to risk management drove this new feature and empowers our customers with a heightened level of customization.

With version 24.1 you now have the flexibility to create custom risk factors that are most relevant to your individual environments by leveraging the policy mechanism. A few examples of custom Risk-Factor types that the user can create:

  • Identify IoT devices that are remotely accessible.
  • Identify servers experiencing “errors in DHCP responses,” potentially impacting network connectivity and security.
  • Identify devices with “failures in an authentication process,” hindering access to secured resources.

This adaptability not only enhances the precision of risk assessments but also reflects our commitment to providing a comprehensive and personalized cybersecurity experience for each and every customer.

Updated Workflows to Upload Asset Data

Armis already offers hundreds of seamless, frictionless, API-based integrations to correlate data from your existing tools including your endpoint security solutions, vulnerability scanners, SaaS applications, asset inventory solutions like CMDB and many more.

Comma-separated value files (more commonly known as the CSV) are still a very popular format that is used heavily for data storage and business operations. The force of the CSV format lies in its simplicity.

Version 24.1 includes a new robust workflow to upload a CSV file with data to enrich devices or create new devices. Adding these data points to Armis Centrix™ contributes to our promise to deliver a ‘single source of truth’ platform.

Benchmarking and Trends Over Time

Armis reports and dashboards are used for a wide variety of metrics and to demonstrate progress over time, for example when it comes to monitoring and reporting on obsolete software or hardware.

Starting with this release, you can compare how you stack up against your industry peers using our brand new ‘Benchmarking’ feature – leveraging AI-powered insights from billions of assets tracked around the world in real time.

Benchmarking delivers quantifiable metrics to track changes and improvements over time, and compare performance against your peers.

Armis dashlets bring invaluable, summarized and aggregated security insights that are accessible to both practitioners as well as the C-suite. By popular demand, we now added “Trend Over Time” to our existing gauge and count dashlets.

In the blink of an eye, you are now able for example to monitor and report whether the number of devices have increased or decreased, compared to 7 days ago.
