Armis Wins 2018 IoT Evolution’s Product of the Year Award

Company’s Agentless Approach to IoT Security Through Discovery, Analysis and Protecting Connected Devices Recognized as Innovative

Palo Alto, CA – September 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/

Armis, the enterprise IoT security company, today announced it received a 2018 IoT Evolution Product of the Year Award from IoT Evolution Magazine and IoT Evolution World. This win comes on the heels of Armis’ recognition by CRN as a 2018 Emerging Vendor, and as a Startup of the Year in Network Products Guide IT World Awards®.

Armis protects businesses by enabling the safe and secure use of unmanaged and IoT devices in the enterprise. The Armis agentless security platform delivers complete visibility into the activity and connections of all devices in an organization’s environment – on or off the network. In a world where applying a security agent on each connected device is impossible, Armis’ unique agentless approach offers a deeper and more profound understanding of all devices in organization, especially unmanaged and IoT devices. This visibility allows Armis to understand normal, suspicious, and malicious device behavior, and stop threats and attacks. Deployment is frictionless as Armis integrates with companies’ existing infrastructure, with installation in 30 minutes or less.

Traditional cybersecurity solutions on the market are not designed to protect these new unmanaged, IoT devices – known or unknown to IT. Armis’ visibility combined with the depth of its Device Knowledge goes beyond other solutions in the visibility and security it offers.

“The Enterprise of Things poses a unique risk to businesses today. Legacy security technologies have been rendered useless in dealing with the onslaught of IoT, and malicious actors are breathing new life into old attack techniques. We saw this in July when Armis researchers found half a billion devices used in businesses globally are vulnerable to the decade-old DNS Rebinding flaw,” said Yevgeny Dibrov, CEO and co-founder of Armis. “Recognition by IoT Evolution for the IoT Product of the Year is validation that the IoT security problem is here and growing.”

“The solutions selected for the IoT Evolution Product of Year Award reflect the diverse range of innovation driving the multi-billion dollar IoT market today. It is my honor to congratulate Armis for their innovative work and superior contribution to the rapidly evolving IoT industry,” said Carl Ford, CEO of Crossfire Media, a co-publisher of IoT Evolution.
