Flavor Manufacturer Secures OT and Business Continuity Today and in the Future

Armis Brings Stronger Security, Peace of Mind, and Ease of Management

This food manufacturing business located in the northeast U.S. specializes in flavorings and other ingredients primarily for the dessert industry. In view of today’s rapidly evolving threat landscape, the company became increasingly concerned about ensuring business continuity, minimizing risk, and ensuring that high-value intellectual property (IP) was fully secured. Its investment in an expanding operation technology (OT) network drove a need for greater visibility and control over these devices and the network traffic they generate. The company implemented Armis to boost resiliency, visibility, and security across the company’s IT and OT estate.

The company started its operations out of a single building. In the last two decades, it has gradually expanded into multiple buildings. Production employees work onsite every day, while the remaining staff work remotely or on a hybrid schedule.

The director of IT is responsible for researching and implementing new technology, building the network, finding and managing IT vendors, and supporting dayto-day IT operations. He has been with the company for many years and oversees a team of two. During his tenure, he has seen many changes in the company’s technology landscape.
