Armis and Viakoo have formed a partnership that brings together IoT device discovery and remediation. Armis detects out-of-compliance devices and Viakoo can trigger certain actions on them, like firmware updates, configuration modifications, certificate refresh and password changes, which can remediate risk. Devices that can’t be remediated would continue to be monitored by Armis for suspicious or malicious behaviour and quarantine.
“Making distributed IoT devices both visible and secure is one of the most difficult tasks in cyber security,” said Daniel Schmelzer, Director, Global Security, Cardinal Health. “The Armis and Viakoo combination eases that burden by providing a trusted, scalable and automated solution that we rely on to reduce risk.”
“Viakoo solves a difficult and necessary task by automating cyber vulnerability remediation,” noted Peter Doggart, VP Business Development and Global Channel at Armis. “Our integration provides a best-in-class solution for organisations to quickly eliminate cyber vulnerabilities and be in control of their IoT infrastructure. Together, Armis and Viakoo provide a unified cybersecurity vulnerability management solution for unmanaged, medical, OT, and IoT devices – critical for any IT or security team.”
“Unmanaged IoT devices represent the largest attack surface within an organisation,” added Bud Broomhead, CEO of Viakoo. “Armis has the most comprehensive solution to discover these devices; now, combined with Viakoo, customers can quickly and cost-effectively make these devices secure, visible, and capable of delivering their full value.”
