PALO ALTO, Calif., Dec. 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Armis, the enterprise IoT security company, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Armis to its 2017 Internet of Things 50 list, which recognizes companies whose innovative offerings are helping connect objects, computing devices, infrastructure, data storage and data analytics that will transform our everyday lives.
The IoT era is a reality for enterprises, and this the fast growing, dynamic ecosystem of connected devices presents a complex security challenge. Traditional cybersecurity solutions are not designed to protect these new connected, IoT devices -- known or unknown to IT. Armis is the only technology platform that lets enterprises see and control compromised and unmanaged devices and rogue networks accessing their systems, effectively eliminating the IoT security blind spot that exists in all businesses today.
"When we founded Armis, we were immediately able to see companies aren't aware of 40 percent of the devices in their environment. Since then, we discovered that more than five billion IoT devices with BlueTooth capability are at risk for BlueBorne, an airborne security vulnerability. This evidence is a call to action for enterprises to address the very real and immediate security risk that IoT poses," said Yevgeny Dibrov, CEO and co-founder of Armis. "We are proud to be recognized by CRN for our contributions to bring IoT security visibility and control to all enterprises that are at risk, whether they are aware of it or not."
"The vendors on this year's Internet of Things 50 list are brilliantly exploiting the deep creative potential of the IoT landscape and uncovering its most promising business opportunities, demonstrating what is possible and inspiring others to innovate," said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. "These 50 companies are at the vanguard of the IoT revolution, developing technologies that are set to transform the way we live and work."
The Internet of Things 50 list will be featured in the December issue of CRN and on CRN.com at crn.com/iot50.
