“From an overall security perspective, visibility into the manufacturing area was a big thing for us. We needed a tool to see what our plants are doing in order to better support them in terms of their security posture— and Armis fit the bill perfectly,”
Information Security Engineer
“The challenge I put forth to the Armis people when they launched the proof-of-value (PoV) was this: ‘show me the smoking gun.’ What is the smoking gun? It’s something we are not able to identify with any of the other tools we already had in place. And sure enough, Armis did just that.”
VP and CIO
Discover, classify, and get rich context for every operational technology device — including SCADA, PLCs, and DCS — and the support assets that keep facilities operational.
Streamline workflows and speed remediation efforts with easy access to granular industrial control systems (ICS) and OT device details and prioritized, actionable risk-related insights on assets and their connections.
Preventing the expansion of an OT security event, mitigating its effects, and resolving it quickly requires toolsets that interoperate seamlessly together and focus attention where it’s needed most.
Rely on adaptive trust and policy enforcement and cut risk in half with access to real-time collective intelligence to inform policy recommendations that underpin continuity and resiliency.
OT Symposium: Eliminate the Blind Side
Listen to a panel of cybersecurity thought leaders, security experts, systems integrators, and Armis customers share their stories and best practices for ICS/OT security in mission critical infrastructures.
Listen to Dan Hoffman as he discusses “A CIA executive’s ‘active defense’ strategy to cybersecurity” and more sessions from the OT cybersecurity event.
“Your workspace is your enemies attack space”

OT security — or operational technology security — refers to the practice of securing the hardware and software systems that control physical devices and industrial processes. The goal is to ensure the availability, reliability, and safety of industrial control systems, such as SCADA, DCS, and PLCs, by mitigating cybersecurity risks that could lead to system failures, operational disruptions or physical damages.
Examples of OT devices include programmable logic controllers (PLCs), supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems, distributed control systems (DCS), human-machine interfaces (HMIs) and building management systems (BMS).
Segmenting the operational technology (OT) network refers to the process of creating a layer of physical security that isolates the OT network from the information technology (IT) environment. The purpose of network segmentation is to enhance security by limiting the impact of breaches and preventing attackers from moving laterally through the network to access sensitive OT systems or data.
