Unparalleled Proactive Asset Discovery

AI data cloud on virtual dashboard

Tired of blind spots in your IT, OT, IoMT and IoT security? Introducing Smart Active Querying from Armis Centrix™, a game-changing methodology that addresses dormant devices, silent vulnerabilities, and fragmented visibility head-on. All of this, with the unique power afforded by the Armis AI driven Asset Intelligence Engine – supercharging your queries with situational knowledge.

Your network is a constantly evolving metropolis, with countless devices coming and going. Whether industrial, critical infrastructure, medical or enterprise, your complex ecosystem holds hidden alleys and quiet corners, where threats lie in wait. Introducing Armis Centrix™, the platform that throws open the blinds and equips you with the visibility you need to tackle the risks attributed to security gaps in your attack surface.

Of course, active discovery isn’t new, but at Armis we’ve achieved unparalleled granularity and querying precision thanks to our AI-driven Asset Intelligence Engine and the contextual knowledge of 4 billion assets. It’s time to shine a light on those hard to reach corners of your network, transforming your security posture from reactive observer to proactive defender.

Why are more Organizations asking for Active Querying?

  • Continuous network monitoring has the potential to leave blind spots: With active querying that reaches into dormant devices that do not communicate over the network. You can get the full picture, revealing hidden information and vulnerabilities you never knew existed.
  • Guesswork is ineffective at best and dangerous at worst: Dive deeper with rich context at both the network and device level. Respond to incidents faster and more effectively with precise information.
  • Complex networks bury assets: Unearth hidden devices that traditional methods miss, even if they never talk on the network. Leave no stone unturned in your security posture.
  • Communicating in your native tongue is essential: Build trust and avoid disruption with stable communication that uses the native language of PLCs and DCSs. Get the information you need without jeopardizing operational stability.
