Armis enables holistic and comprehensive visibility and control across the manufacturing environment.

Colgate-Palmolive has a dedicated security team in place to oversee its IT infrastructure in hundreds of locations. In keeping with its adherence to best practices and using best available technologies, the company implemented Armis to provide the OT security team with broader visibility, insights into gaps, and the ability to fine-tune policy in alignment with current threats and risks. Colgate-Palmolive now works in close collaboration with the vendor to continually drive new, out-of-the-box use cases for Armis at its manufacturing facilities.

Colgate-Palmolive has been supplying hundreds of millions of consumers all over the world with personal care, household, healthcare, and veterinary products. The company has over 60 locations in the U.S. and 280 locations in more than 70 countries overseas.

While Colgate-Palmolive has a large, seasoned security team overseeing the IT infrastructure, the operational technology (OT) security team is evolving and growing. At the helm are Information Security Engineers Rafia Noor and Shem Stephens. Both are deeply involved in strategic OT initiatives and operationalization of solutions and processes at the organization’s more than 40 manufacturing plants.
