Gigamon announced a joint solution that enables organizations to reduce business risk and increase security through real-time and continuous protection for managed, unmanaged, and IoT devices.

While agent-based security approaches may effectively protect many critical assets on traditional networks, these approaches do little to secure unmanaged, IoT, OT, and medical devices, which are inherently more vulnerable due to a lack of robust security and patching difficulties. As a result, agentless IoT devices have become an attractive attack target for cybercriminals, posing a significant and growing security risk as adoption increases.

That’s why today, the Gigamon Visibility and Analytics Fabric and the Armis Agentless Device Security Platform work together to provide full visibility into all traffic across hybrid networks. With Gigamon, organizations are empowered to gain pervasive hybrid cloud visibility, equipping Armis with access to relevant traffic to assure stronger security, compliance, and business continuity.

"As cloud complexity abounds and cyber threats continue to skyrocket across the enterprise, the need for simple, comprehensive device visibility and security has never been more essential to deliver on everyday business objectives,” said Peter Doggart, Chief Strategy Officer at Armis. "With this new joint solution, agentless security meets unmatched cloud visibility, so organizations are better prepared to manage asset inventory, regulate compliance efforts, enhance threat detection, and more.”

“Elastic visibility and analytics for the hybrid cloud are at the forefront of what we do at Gigamon. Now, coupled with Armis’ industry-leading agentless security platform, organizations will be even better prepared to mitigate malicious cyber activity all the way from unmanaged IoT devices to the public cloud,” said Michael Dickman, Chief Product Officer at Gigamon.

With this new joint solution, Armis and Gigamon customers will be better equipped to:

- Gain visibility of unmanaged, IoT, OT, and medical devices

- Reduce business and compliance risk with continuous, real-time device vulnerability and behavioral risk assessments

- Align NetOps and SecOps teams using comprehensive device and network data

- Automatically detect and respond to suspicious or malicious device behavior
