The IT infrastructure of organizations today is very complex and consists of a huge number of assets of any type, networks and subnetworks, local and remote sites, and of a wide variety of security controls. Continually identifying, prioritizing and taking relevant actions against security gaps and risks is crucial to prevent those from being used by attackers to breach or infiltrate the organization.
Security Gaps and Exposures Inside Your Network
Your network environment is complex and there is a good chance that it includes security weak spots and exposures that can be used by attackers. Your security agent-based tools only see where they are deployed and finding assets that do not have agents or have malfunctioning agents is very challenging. In addition, any connected asset can pose significant risks to your organization from inherent weaknesses such as its profile, configuration, and location in the network.
Security Posture Gaps
There are hundreds of security controls, as defined by common security frameworks by organizations such as the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Center for Internet Security (CIS).
However, identifying gaps in security controls can be difficult, if not almost impossible. For example, how would you know if a company issued laptop did not have an endpoint security agent installed, or if an asset was not being scanned by a vulnerability scanner as scheduled because it is hidden behind a firewall or in an unknown network segment?
Identify and Prioritize Asset Risks
Any connected asset can pose security risks to the organization depending on parameters such as its hardware, operating system, apps, configuration, connections and more. Those risks can be leveraged by attackers and to be used as entry points into the network.
Identifying assets’ risks is challenging without complete visibility to all the assets in the network and their properties. In addition, once identifying the risks, prioritization of the ones that are most likely to be exploited and that pose the highest impact is a must to make sure remediation and mitigation resources are efficiently allocated.
Monitor and Report Gaps and Risks Status
Without clear dashboards and reports on your security gaps and risks, it’s like they never happened. Necessary dashboards and reports capabilities for communicating, analyzing and tracking the status are mandatory and suit any type of function or user.
Maximize Your Agents and Scanners Coverage With Armis
Finding assets that do not have agents or that are not being scanned as they should be is very challenging and missing those assets exposes your organization to cyber-attacks. Armis Centrix™ enables quick and easy discovery of those security gaps and enables you to take suitable action to close them.
Quick and Easy Discovery of Missing or Malfunctioning Agents and Scanners
The average security organization has 76 security tools to manage. Each of these tools generates independent data points, leading to a fragmented view of security. Armis uses API integrations to connect with existing tools so you have a single source of truth, with a complete, accurate, and real-time asset inventory that streamlines your operations.
Armis Centrix™, the cyber exposure management platform, lets you answer key questions, including:
- What devices have not been scanned in the last 30 days?
- What devices have their agent missing?
- What endpoint agents have not updated, are misconfigured or malfunctioning?
Fix Security Blindspots
Armis Centrix™ discover hidden risks, weak spots, and entry points and enables you to take suitable actions before they are used against you by attackers.
Gain Full Asset Risk Visibility
Armis Centrix™ automatically discovers and assesses risks from any connected asset. It identify assets’ profile risks such as end of life or end of support of the operating systems, applications and the firmwares, invalid certificate, default credentials, and bad vendors and models reputation, it also identify asset behavioral risks such as of unencrypted traffic usage, plaintext credentials, and SMBv1 Usage.
