PALO ALTO, Calif., Jan. 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Armis, the enterprise IoT security company, today announced it has been recognized as a Trust Award finalist in the Best Threat Detection Technology category for the 2019 SC Awards. The finalists and winners for the Trust Awards are chosen by an expert panel of judges with extensive knowledge and experience in the cybersecurity industry. Other finalists in the Best Threat Detection category include AlienVault, Aruba, CrowdStrike, Exabeam, Sophos and Symantec. Winners will be announced at the SC Awards ceremony on March 5, 2019 in San Francisco.
"From new, connected biomedical devices in hospitals and robots on a factory line, to smart TVs in the Boardroom, unmanaged devices are proliferating across the enterprise, allowing for greater workplace productivity and efficiency. But these smart devices are manufactured with a 'connectivity first, security second' mindset," said Yevgeny Dibrov, CEO and co-founder of Armis. "Many connected devices have no security and can't be managed by traditional solutions. The result is 40 percent of devices in an enterprise are unseen and unprotected by IT. Armis not only sees all the devices, managed or unmanaged, but also can detect threats without an agent. We're proud to be recognized as an SC Media Trust Award Finalist for Threat Detection. It's our mission to help companies get ahead of IoT risks by shining a light on unmanaged devices and stopping attackers from exploiting them."
"Nobody understands the cybersecurity battle better than the cybersecurity professionals who work day in and day out to clean up and protect businesses from malicious attacks," added Illena Armstrong of SC Media. "Armis is one of a select few to receive this tremendous recognition of a Trust Award finalist, and they should be proud of the work this represents."
The SC Awards gala honoring the winners attracts top professionals in the cybersecurity community and provides an invaluable opportunity for networking. To register for the 2019 SC Awards gala, please visit https://scawards2019.splashthat.com/.
