Armis Revolutionizes Security Findings Prioritization and Remediation With Silk Security Acquisition

Armis + silk

In a bold stride to fortify our stance in the cybersecurity arena, Armis has announced its acquisition of Silk Security for a total of $150M. This acquisition marks a significant milestone in our pathway to revolutionize the cybersecurity landscape, enhancing our AI driven Armis Centrix™ for Vulnerability Prioritization and Remediation product to supercharge its capabilities and enable consolidation and correlation of findings. Additional capabilities include our ability to understand risk, automate prioritization across the full asset attack surface, from on prem devices to cloud compute, code, and application security tools, and fully manage and automate remediation.

In today’s highly dynamic environment there is a clear necessity for a holistic approach to cybersecurity. Armis is building a future where the entire attack surface is not only defended but also actively and efficiently reported, prioritized, managed and remediated in real-time. This necessitates comprehensive solutions tailored to address the most pressing cybersecurity risks for any customer, in any environment.

The acquisition of Silk Security aligns seamlessly with Armis’ strategy of offering end-to-end exposure management solutions capable of monitoring and managing all assets and devices across an organization’s digital footprint from the ground to the cloud. Over the past eight years, Armis has built its AI-powered Armis Centrix™ platform to encompass every facet of cyber threat exposure management which includes asset discovery and management, early warning threat detection, vulnerability discovery, prioritization, and now, remediation.

Earlier this year, Armis made headlines with the acquisition of CTCI, bolstering our early warning capabilities through AI-driven insights gleaned from dark web activity, dynamic honeypots, and strategic intelligence gathering. The addition of Silk Security’s technology further empowers organizations with advanced cloud and code protection as well as the ability to streamline the remediation process from the deluge of security findings they face daily. With a focus on prioritization, automation, remediation and traceability, Armis Centrix™ equips organizations with the tools needed to mitigate any security finding swiftly and effectively, enabling ongoing risk reduction as well as enhancing compliance and security posture.

The amalgamation of Armis and Silk Security is more than just an acquisition transaction; it’s a beacon for the cybersecurity industry’s future. It serves as a testament to the power of AI in fortifying digital defenses and underscores the importance of a holistic, life-cycle approach to managing cyber threats. For organizations worldwide, this marks a shift towards more resilient, efficient, and comprehensive cybersecurity strategies, capable of thwarting and proactively protecting against the increasingly sophisticated threats of the digital era.
