Secure OT, IT, and More
The need for OT security is changing as these environments are rapidly being connected to enterprise networks and exposed to threats coming from the Internet. While these connections make it easy to gather data and remotely manage the OT environment, they also create entry points for attackers. On July 23, 2020, the NSA and CISA issued a joint warning that attackers were actively leveraging these connections to attack OT devices.
Armis is an agentless device security platform that secures all types of connected devices—OT, IT and IoT devices. This is important because attackers see all these connected devices as one continuous system. A siloed security system that myopically sees just one of these environments simply does not keep OT systems secure.
Agentless and passive OT security that identifies and classifies every connected device, tracks behavior, identifies threats, and takes action to protect safety and operations.
Detect Attacks on ICS
MITRE ATT&CK™ for ICS is a useful tool that helps security managers assess whether their existing OT security controls are adequate. Traditional IT security controls that utilize agents will not work in these environments, and network-based scans and probes can often adversely impact OT devices, even potentially taking the devices and corresponding business capabilities offline.
Armis is purpose-built to detect cyber attacks within manufacturing and industrial environments. As a result, Armis provides comprehensive coverage of the cyber attack techniques listed in the MITRE ATT&CK for ICS matrix.
Avoid Costly Operational Downtime
Sensitive industrial control systems (ICS) are vulnerable to attacks that can halt your entire operation. And every minute a manufacturing line isn't online can have catastrophic effects on an organization's bottom line. The Armis OT cyber security platform keeps you running by:
- Identifying vulnerable OT devices in your environment
- Monitoring device behavior to detect compromises or policy violations
- Stopping attacks from moving laterally from device to device
- Taking action to quarantine suspicious or malicious devices
ICS Security Risk Assessment
The Armis platform generates information and scoring that helps your security team understand your attack surface, vulnerabilities, and meet compliance with regulatory frameworks.
“Our connected factories, assembly lines and distribution centers are key enablers in accelerating our growth and it is essential that they run reliably. By using Armis, we have further enhanced our visibility and control to ensure production is not disrupted.”
Global Chief Information Security Officer, Mondelēz International
Comply with Security Frameworks
If you are like most enterprises, you model your security controls against one or more security framesworks such as the Center for Internet Security (CIS) Critical Security Controls or the NIST Cybersecurity Framework.
You might also use the Purdue Enterprise Reference Architecture to segment your network to better isolate your sensitive OT devices from your enterprise devices.
Armis is an agentless device security platform that has been specifically designed to help you apply these frameworks throughout your enterprise — especially with critical OT devices. Armis provides broad-spectrum coverage that supports 11 of the 20 Critical Security Controls and sixteen of the NIST CSF controls across the categories Identify, Protect, Detect, and Respond. And Armis can help you audit your network connections to measure the integrity of your network against the Purdue reference architecture.
Agentless. Passive. Comprehensive.
Devices in OT environments can't host the software agents required by traditional security products, they can't risk being brought down by intrusive security scans, and they can't be updated easily—if at all. Armis is the first agentless, completely passive OT security platform to address the full spectrum of risks associated with both IT and OT devices. Its unique technology continuously discovers and profiles devices in your environment, analyzes their behavior to identify risks and attacks, and automatically protects you from suspicious or malicious activity.
