Armis Teams Up With Leading MDR Provider Expel to Protect Connected Assets

As the cybersecurity world descends upon San Francisco for RSA Conference 2022, Armis is excited to announce that it has joined forces with fellow XDR Alliance member Expel. As an early adopter of Armis’ APEX MSSP Partner Program, Expel aims to make security easy to understand for our mutual customers. Together, Armis and Expel will help protect customers’ managed and unmanaged assets across IT, cloud, IoT devices, and operational technology (OT) from cyber threats.

This collaboration began when Expel sought a partner who could provide 100% visibility of all assets in the environment. This is what brought them to us with our Armis Device Knowledgebase—the world’s largest—tracking billions of devices and growing every day.

Underscoring this objective is Dave Merkel, CEO and co-founder of Expel, who stated, “Our partnership with Armis is directly aligned with our goal of continuously improving our solutions to meet the changing needs of our customers. We expect the combined efforts of Expel and Armis will have a tremendous impact on the security strategies of organizations using IoT technology.”

We are at a true inflection point in the cyber security market since we are witnessing that endpoint detection and response (EDR) technology is not enough to address the challenges of the current security landscape.. The next concentric circle towards the center of gravity of any IT security manager is being able to see all connected assets in their environment and understanding their associated risk. According to a recent Armis survey about shadow IoT, only 50 percent of companies know the true number of their assets in their environments.

Thus, this is our primary goal, to provide complete asset inventory for customers by allowing them to identify and classify any devices in real-time from IT to OT. Customers will have visibility and rich context to track behavior, detect threats, overlay asset vulnerability intelligence and remediate those threats quickly.

“As connected assets become more common in the operational infrastructures of many organizations, they’re also becoming popular entry points for threat actors looking to gain access to those companies’ critical systems and data,” said Peter Doggart, Chief Security Officer at Armis. “Our partnership with Expel represents a leap forward in helping protect these assets for our customers, and securing their highly distributed and complex environments.”

Armis is building a powerful partner ecosystem and Expel is foundational to this effort. With partnerships spanning across 50 countries, we are primed to deliver robust security solutions to every market worldwide. This is only possible through our partnerships with experienced and effective firms like Expel.
