With data streaming in from multiple sources in the security stack, the IT team at this state government department was finding itself having to constantly correlate multiple data sets to track down device discrepancies.
The manual process was time-consuming and inefficient. Armis integrated various systems and sources of data to provide a single source of truth. The team now has a shared, consolidated dashboard that greatly speeds up everyday tasks, prioritizes vulnerabilities, and tightens security gaps before they become a problem.
With 350 total staff members, this U.S. state government department has a team of 15 people dedicated to providing IT services in the state capital building. The security team monitors approximately 1,500 devices.
