Armis Centrix™ for Medical Device Security

Asset Behavior Monitoring and Compliance

Assess the behavior and compliance of assets across your organization and ensure they are running as intended and within policy. Armis Centrix™, the cyber-exposure management platform, empowers healthcare organizations to see how each of their devices is behaving and be alerted to anomalous or non-compliant behavior.

The Importance of Device and Asset Visibility

Challenges in Behavior Monitoring

Cybersecurity challenges in healthcare are unique, especially when it comes to monitoring device behavior.

Limited Visibility

Because of the unique and sensitive nature of many medical devices, discovering every asset is a traditionally difficult task. Monitoring those devices post-discovery is even more difficult, specifically if the device is unagented or unmanaged.

Non-Disruptive Monitoring

Many device monitoring tools rely on invasive scanning to gather information about the devices they are monitoring. However, invasive scanning of medical devices can cause disruptions to patient care and has to be avoided, leaving many devices unmonitored.

Unique Devices

Healthcare delivery organizations have access to unique devices that are hard to monitor without a baseline knowledge of their intended operation or lifecycle. Hospitals may only have single instances of some devices, like MRIs, and may not notice anomalous behavior without more data to draw from.

Continuous Care

Ensuring that the devices delivering care continue to operate is a key responsibility of healthcare security teams.

Monitoring Without Disruption

Non-disruptive monitoring ensures that medical devices and other critical systems remain operational and available for patient care while still providing valuable insights into potential security risks. This approach is especially crucial in healthcare settings, where any disruption to device functionality could impact patient safety and the quality of care provided. Armis Centrix™ is able to collect information via passive and safe-active scanning, without disrupting those devices.

Asset Behavior Monitoring and Baselines

Armis Centrix™ compares data from your devices against a database of billions of assets to assess behavior against global baselines.

Context for Device Behaviors

The Armis Asset Intelligence Engine compares device behavior against global baselines so you can understand how your device is acting in the context of similar devices. With Armis Centrix™, you’ll be able to monitor even your most unique devices and have the information you need to make critical security decisions that affect your organization.
