“The key differentiators for the Armis platform include strong risk and vulnerability management capabilities,” said Rohan Paul, Analyst at Quadrant Knowledge Solutions. “Further, the company’s extensive Collective Asset Intelligence Engine, the agentless security approach, passive, real-time monitoring with no latency or disruption of operations, its querying capabilities, and the intelligent reporting and analytic tools that can help HDOs optimize usage/performance of their assets are a few components that set Armis apart from its competitors. Based on our analysis of the company’s capabilities compared to the market, Armis is a clear leader for its technology excellence and customer impact.”
Quadrant Knowledge Solutions also highlighted the company’s capabilities for:
- Providing contextual risk assessment based on vulnerabilities, device behavior, history of cyberattacks, protected health information (PHI), and manufacturers’ reputational risk.
- Extending insights to non-medical devices, such as Building Management Systems (BMS), HVAC systems, Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS), tablets, Raspberry Pis, vehicles, and other generic IoT devices. Additionally, devices that may impact patient privacy, such as streaming cameras and recording devices like smart speakers, can be identified and monitored.
- Identifying and alerting unencrypted transmission of PHI, helping to protect PHI.
- Supporting extensive integration options for data governance, automated security enforcement, workflow generation, and compliance reporting.
“At Armis, we pride ourselves on our technology excellence and customer impact, so we’re honored to be recognized by Quadrant Knowledge Solutions as the clear leader in these areas,” said Oscar Miranda, Chief Technology Officer for Healthcare at Armis. “Healthcare delivery organizations are up against significant challenges given today’s ever-expanding cyber risk landscape. We’re committed to doing our part in partnering with and supporting HDOs as they work towards improving their organization’s security posture to address the new extended attack surface that connected assets create.”
“Armis has definitely filled in the gaps in our security arsenal by uncovering risks we never knew about previously,” said Dr. Michael Connolly, Chief Information Officer at Mater Misericordiae University Hospital. “At first, I thought Armis was a nice-to-have, but now it’s become an integral part of our cyber defense. Armis does exactly what it says it does.”
