GBI, Industry News

Organizations around the world are overwhelmed by the sheer volume of vulnerable assets in their environment at any given moment. With the time it takes to exploit a new vulnerability dropping rapidly, and the 60-150 days it takes to patch vulnerabilities, combined with the number of connected devices growing exponentially, security and IT operations teams simply cannot address vulnerabilities as quickly as needed.

​​These issues, coupled with the need to ensure the availability and stability of business operations, make it necessary to prioritize mitigation efforts across all assets, according to their criticality to the business, and optimize limited resources. 

Armis Asset Vulnerability Management (AVM) offers risk-based vulnerability management that enables security teams to quickly identify and remediate those vulnerabilities that are most likely to be exploited and negatively impact the business.

Full Visibility Into Your Asset Attack Surface

One of the most critical security issues today is the fact that IT and security teams don't know where all of their organization’s digital infrastructure and assets are, or whether they’re vulnerable or not. With most vulnerability scanners missing 40% or more of the managed IT assets in an environment, and not scanning unmanaged assets, organizations are left to deal with an unknown attack surface. This leaves them exposed to a myriad of threats and risks. 

Built on the asset discovery capabilities of Armis Asset Intelligence Platform, Armis AVM has  complete, unified view of every asset in your environment. This includes everything from your enterprise IT and network assets to cloud and IoT devices like smart TVs, IoMT devices, and OT devices like HMI panels, PLCs, SCADA servers, and more. 

Armis AVM then provides information about vulnerabilities associated with each asset, no matter what the asset type is. If the organization is already using a vulnerability scanner for the IT environment, Armis can integrate with it  to gather information for assets already identified. For assets that are not covered by those scanners, Armis fills the gaps by assessing devices against Armis’s asset intelligence knowledge-base. This unique crowd-sources knowledge-based tracks vulnerabilities on over 2 Billion assets around the world. It is continuously updated by Armis’s research group with the latest information about vulnerabilities and exploits, ensuring you are always up-to-date.Armis AVM also fills in gaps on scanner-identified asset data, regarding the asset owner, its location, and more. This complete asset inventory ensures users are fully aware of the attack surface..

Business Critical Risk-Based Prioritization 

Prioritization of mitigation efforts by business criticality helps security and IT operations teams focus their efforts on the most pressing vulnerabilities that matter most. When your teams know exactly which critical assets are affected by which vulnerabilities, they can act quickly and precisely to thwart the issues that pose the biggest threat to your business.

Armis AVM calculates a risk score for each asset based on its criticality to the business, the severity of its vulnerabilities, and the exploitability of these vulnerabilities. Unlike vulnerability management solutions that only consider the CVSS score (Common Vulnerability Scoring System), Armis also understands the business criticality of the asset:

Armis continuously monitors and maps out the connections and communications between various assets and services in your environment. This allows Armis to understand the relationships and dependencies on assets in your environment. An asset with many connections and dependencies is more critical to your business, and therefore should be prioritized over a stand alone asset with no dependencies, even if the vulnerabilities of the stand-alone asset are more severe. (It's important to note that the criticality of an asset can be set manually as well).

Full Vulnerability Lifecycle Management

Armis AVM offers full vulnerability lifecycle management features to continuously improve the security of your environment. Ongoing monitoring, dashboards, and reports help you track vulnerability mitigation efforts over time and demonstrate improvement in the organization’s security posture. 

Integration with security automation and orchestration solutions enables automated responses to detected vulnerabilities. The response can be as simple as opening a ticket in a ticketing system and alerting the responsible team, quarantining the vulnerable device until it is remediated and verified, or and even full automated remediation or patching of the vulnerable asset.
