Armis Helps Singapore University Improve Visibility, Boost Its Security Posture, and Build a Security Culture

Singapore University


  • Gain visibility into Bring Your Own Devices and IT assets controlled and operated by research groups.
  • Define and enforce security policies.
  • Create a culture of security awareness and accountability.


  • Identifying all managed and unmanaged devices, from research servers to personal mobile devices, and IoT.
  • Collecting granular data on all network-connected devices.
  • Providing drill-down dashboards and reports to help drive behavioral change among users and ease compliance.

By gaining a better handle on unmanaged Bring Your Own Devices (BYOD) and research equipment, IT intends to instill users with a greater sense of security accountability.

Understanding the stark realities of today’s increasingly complex threat landscape, the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) is on a mission to up-level its cybersecurity. Like most institutions of higher learning, the university was well aware of the risks posed by unmanaged network-connected assets used by students or under the ownership of research groups. The first order of business was to find a way to gain visibility into these unmanaged devices. The IT team chose Armis to identify these devices and provide a complete IT asset inventory with comprehensive, granular data for each device. The team is sharing their newly acquired knowledge with stakeholders to pave the way for a stronger security posture supported by heightened security awareness among users.

Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) is a boutique university, with approximately 2,000 students and 900 faculty and staff. Founded in 2009, the research-intensive university offers four-year undergraduate programs in computer science, engineering, artificial intelligence, architecture, and related fields. Besides undergraduate, master’s and post-graduate degree programs, skill-based professional education and training courses are also available at the SUTD Academy.
