Protect critical data in the medical and pharmaceutical sectors with Armis

These devices lack inherent security controls, they cannot easily receive software updates, and they are not seen nor managed by traditional security products. All of this puts sensitive data, day-to-day facility operations, and patient health at risk.

Armis is the first agentless, enterprise-class security platform to address the new threat landscape of unmanaged medical and IoT devices.

The Armis platform discovers every device (managed, unmanaged and medical) on and off the network and analyses behaviour to identify risks, such as ransomware spread, and can quarantine devices, medical or otherwise, thereby protecting critical patient information and systems from attacks in real-time.

“Armis, which is cloud-based, agentless, and integrates easily with existing network and security products, passively monitors wired and wireless traffic on a network and in a medical facility’s airspace to identify every device and to understand their behaviours without disruption. The Armis Risk Engine then analyses this data and uses device profiles and characteristics from the Armis Device Knowledgebase to identify each device, assess their risks, detect threats, and quarantine suspicious malicious devices automatically,” said Andre Kannemeyer, CTO at Duxbury Networking, suppliers of Armis solutions in South Africa.
