Since joining Armis nearly three years ago, I have had many conversations with prospects and customers. When discussing how Armis can solve their business problems, I get a response that typically begins with, “But I already have…”. In many cases, this is because adjacent cybersecurity technologies have similar messaging or claim to solve similar problems.
Naturally, a prospect that has already invested in a particular technology wants to ensure that they are not making a redundant purchase with a budget they could spend elsewhere. I get it. I could talk all day about how Armis is different from technology X, Y, and Z, but I’m going to start with SIEM because I literally had this conversation with someone the other day.
According to Gartner, Security information and event management (SIEM) is the technology that supports threat detection, compliance, and security incident management through the collection and analysis (both near real-time and historical) of security events, and a wide variety of other event and contextual data sources. The core capabilities are a broad scope of log event collection and management, the ability to analyze log events and other data across disparate sources, and operational capabilities (such as incident management, dashboards, and reporting).
SIEM is a great technology but cannot solve every facet of cybersecurity alone. In this case, Armis and SIEM solutions can work harmoniously to produce a “better together” story.
In short, SIEM alone:
The Armis Platform is the industry’s most comprehensive asset intelligence platform providing unified asset visibility and superior security across all asset types, including IT, IoT, OT, IoMT, Cloud, and cellular-IoT, managed or unmanaged.
When delivered as an agentless SaaS platform, Armis seamlessly integrates with existing IT and security stacks (like SIEM) to quickly deliver the contextual intelligence needed for improving your security posture without disrupting current operations or workflows.
Armis + SIEM will:
Combining Armis and SIEM will ultimately give you a better return on the investment in your SIEM solution and reduce the operational overhead of incident investigation.
Background – A company has an IT Security policy that mandates all servers should have events monitored in the SIEM for auditing or incident investigation.
Enhancing SIEM is just a single use case of how Armis utilizes its authoritative asset data to reduce the attack surface and operational overheads.
