Devices connected to cellular networks around the world enjoy enhanced connectivity and security without deploying agents or additional hardware.
PALO ALTO, Calif. and GUILDFORD, England, February 2, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Global Connectivity Specialist Eseye and leading provider of agentless device security platform armis today announced the general availability of a common solution that enables organizations to deploy connected devices anywhere in the world with enterprise-grade security and consistent, reliable cellular (4G/LTE/5G) connectivity.
Digital transformation has created a new generation of connected objects that go beyond traditional computing and into virtually every business and every industry. For the first time, the volume of these non-traditional assets exceeded the total number of traditional computers and servers in the world. Analysts to predict this number will grow exponentially over the next five years. This new hyperconnected, highly distributed, and dynamically evolving environment represents the new cyber-asset landscape of the digital enterprise. Any loss of connectivity or cyberattacks against these devices can be financially devastating and damage the brand, leading to widespread collateral loss to an organization’s bottom line.
“Most of the traditional endpoint security products available today require agents that cannot be installed on the majority of cell-based IoT and OT devices. update maintenance information on aircraft or control critical infrastructure such as electricity and water transmission, and they are at serious risk of cyber threats,” said Pierre Doggard, Chief Strategy Officer, Armis. “The footprint of these devices is expected to expand rapidly over the next few years, making Armis and Eseye’s joint solution the ultimate foundation for automation and digital transformation.”
Many of these new connected devices use 4G/LTE/5G technologies, increasing their reach and flexibility while introducing unique connectivity and security challenges. Apart from North America, hundreds of mobile network operators (MNOs) operate in geographies with many common borders, creating a persistent lack of connectivity. Most carriers prevent devices from roaming after a few weeks, which greatly impacts the ability of cellular IoT and other devices to realize their full potential. According to Eseye 2021 State of IoT Adoption Reportmore than a third (35%) of respondents cited cellular connectivity as the top challenge for deploying large-scale IoT projects.
Eseye is unique Connectivity management platform enables devices to intelligently switch to any of over 700 GSMA-compliant carriers to maximize uptime with near 100% global coverage. the Armis Agentless Device Security Platform provides device detection, monitoring, and behavioral risk assessments to automatically respond to anomalies that put devices at risk. Together, this joint solution enables enterprises to deploy and access virtually any device in the world with confidence.
“With Transforma Insights predicting that the number of cellular devices will grow to five billion by 2030, the IoT attack surface is growing exponentially. The emergence of eUICC and eSIM means that devices can frequently move between a range of public and private 5G networks, as well as IoT platforms, making IoT assets difficult to track and secure,” said Nick EarleCEO of Eseye.
“Eseye’s unique cloud-based MPLS network and IoT connectivity platform with Network Orchestration enable cellular IoT devices to reliably connect with nearly 100% uptime to a choice of over 700 GSMA-compliant carriers. Essentially, we become the “eye of the needle”, making Eseye the single source for all global IoT data, regardless of which mobile network the device is ultimately connected to. Together, Armis and Eseye solve the problem of asset visibility and security control, enabling enterprises to provide centralized policy deployment at the edge. We are excited to bring this first-of-its-kind solution to market with Armis to deliver complete peace of mind to enterprises, providing a central route for all IoT security policies and controls across any network,” added Earle. .
With this seamless integration, Armis integrates with Eseye in the cloud to:
Complete inventory of assets: Armis detects and identifies all devices connecting to Eseye’s global network, for example, internet-connected medical devices, vending machines, remote devices in the energy and utility sectors, as well as telematics sensors and monitoring.
Risk management: Armis calculates a risk score for each device on Eseye-managed cellular networks and continues to monitor device behavior to ensure risk remains below the customer’s tolerance threshold.
Automatic detection and response: At an unacceptable level of risk, or if the behavior indicates an imminent or active threat, Armis can quarantine a suspicious device or disconnect a malicious device from an Eseye-managed cellular network to prevent a threat from moving laterally. The Armis platform effectively controls risk and mitigates threats with real-time accuracy, self-learning insights, and immediately actionable recommendations.
Armis is the leading unified asset visibility and security platform designed to address the new threat landscape created by connected devices. Fortune 1000 companies trust our real-time, continuous protection to see with full context all managed, unmanaged, and IoT devices, including medical devices (IoMT), operational technology (OT), and industrial controls (ICS). Armis provides unparalleled passive cybersecurity asset management, risk management and automated enforcement. Armis is a private company headquartered in Palo Alto, California.
Eseye enables companies to adopt the IoT without limits. Our pioneering IoT hardware and cellular connectivity solutions enable enterprises to overcome the complexity of designing, developing and deploying IoT devices. We help over 2,000 customers seamlessly connect millions of devices in 190 countries, regardless of over 700 available global mobile networks. Learn more about www.eseye.com.
