Other Products

Agent-based security
(endpoint protection, EDR, etc.)
  • Only effective on endpoints that can accept an agent (“managed” endpoints)
  • 100% agentless
  • Effective on managed, unmanaged, and IoT endpoints
Network Access Control (NAC)
  • Discovers devices on the enterprise network only
  • Can’t assess risk of unmanaged devices
  • Can’t detect threats
  • No (or limited) device knowledgebase
  • Difficult to deploy and manage
  • Discovers devices on the network and in the airspace
  • Assesses the risk of all devices – managed and unmanaged
  • Detects threats
  • Huge device knowledgebase (8 million different device profiles)
  • Far easier to deploy than NAC
Network Scanning Tools
  • Good for managed computers
  • Can disrupt or crash many types of unmanaged devices
  • Can miss devices located in unknown network segments or hidden behind firewalls
  • 100% passive monitoring. No scans. No disruption.
  • Effective for managed and unmanaged devices
  • 100% comprehensive coverage, regardless of network topology
Network Firewall
  • Protects the network perimeter and core
  • Focused on network traffic, not devices
  • No device knowledgebase, so unable to detect anomalous behavior
  • Protects devices at the access layer
  • Focused on device state and behavior
  • Extensive cloud-based, crowd sourced knowledgebase provides deep understanding of appropriate (and inappropriate) device behavior
  • Analyzes logs produced by managed devices
  • Blind to unmanaged and IoT devices which do not produce logs
  • Does not rely on logs
  • Directly assesses risks and detects threats of all devices
  • Integrates into and complements SIEMs
Network Traffic Analysis (NTA)
  • Does not provide asset inventory (device discovery)
  • Does not assess the risk of devices
  • Fails to detect policy violations
  • Armis generates a complete inventory of hardware and software
  • Armis generates a risk assessment for every device
  • Armis can detect policy violations and other forms of inappropriate behavior.
