With Internet of Things (IoT) devices estimated to make up 90% of devices by 2021, iSecurity and Armis, a California-based provider of agentless security for unmanaged and IoT devices, announce a strategic partnership for micro-level cyber threat visibility into unmanaged medical devices, biomedical networks, and control systems.

Based in Toronto, iSecurity has been delivering digital protection to North American and international clients including government agencies, hospitals, and businesses since the inception of the cybersecurity industry. Its clients rely on advanced cybersecurity monitoring and detection services to proactively respond before an incident or data breach occurs. When a threat is detected, the nature of the threat is fed back into its 24X7X365 Security Operations Centre (SOC) to analyze the threat and determine whether a response is necessary. These threats are generally detected in its clients’ firewalls, networks, and servers.

“Our new partnership with Armis offers a new angle on discovery, asset, and vulnerability management along with cybersecurity detection for our clients whose facilities and environments are increasingly relying on unmanaged and IoT devices,” says Raheel Qureshi, partner of cybersecurity services at iSecurity. “As threats are detected across these devices, our SOC will be able to quickly offer critical advice on whether action needs to be taken. This is a reflection of our commitment to offering the best value-added cybersecurity services to elevate our clients’ security posture.” 

A complete inventory of hardware and software is critically important to all enterprises. This is why many regulatory security frameworks build from the initial step of asset inventory. “Armis automatically generates a complete inventory of devices in an enterprise environment—on or off the network,” says Ajay Sood, regional vice president and country manager for Armis. 

“Our solution works with all types of devices, including those that cannot accommodate a security software footprint, such as anti-virus or system management software,” Sood continues. “Not only does this allow us to offer our customers visibility into 50% to 70% more devices, it also allows us to deploy in as little as minutes instead of weeks. 

To kick-off their new relationship, Armis and iSecurity will be hosting a complimentary webinar on July 7,  with a spotlight on securing medical devices for healthcare organizations. To reserve your spot, register here.
