Guildford, UK: IoT connectivity specialist Eseye and leading agentless device security platform provider, Armis have been named joint winners of the IoT and Edge Computing Security Award at this year’s Computing Security Excellence Awards.
Visibility of IoT devices is crucial to understanding the security risks within organisations. Without the capability to install agents on cellular devices, updating the software and operating systems that manage connected devices is extremely difficult, leaving companies vulnerable to increased risk of attack.
Organizations want to deploy connected devices anywhere in the world without the constant worry about security, while maintaining a high quality of service.
Eseye and Armis have partnered to deliver an industry-first; a global, secure solution for any IoT device connecting to any network. Together the joint solution provides enterprise-class security and consistent, reliable, and high-performing cellular (4G/LTE/5G) connectivity without requiring agents or deploying additional hardware or software.
Eseye’s unique Connectivity Management Platform enables devices to switch intelligently to any one of over 700 GSMA-compliant carriers to maximise uptime with near 100% global coverage. The Armis Agentless Device Security Platform provides device discovery, monitoring, and behavioural risk assessments, and automatically responds to anomalies that put devices at risk. Together, this joint solution ensures organisations can deploy and secure virtually any type of IoT device globally, to any network, with confidence.
Judges said Eseye and Armis’ agentless security solution for IoT and edge computing devices “has a broad usage capability and is not restricted to a particular industry. Its use cases, tech and adoption show great potential.”
“We are delighted to win this joint award with Armis. We have seen demand for secure IoT devices become more of a priority in 2021 as adoption has accelerated. However, the escalating threat landscape has meant that security considerations must be factored in from the outset. In fact, research that we did earlier in the year showed that 39% of respondents cited security as the top challenge facing IoT initiatives. By partnering with Armis we are leveraging our global network to enable them to offer industry best in class capabilities around IOT device visibility, behaviour tracking and remediation. This directly addresses Enterprise needs and will result in faster, more secure IoT deployments” commented Nick Earle, CEO, Eseye.
“Armis is extremely pleased to partner with Eseye and to already see success in the market with this recognition from Computing,” said Ed Barry, Vice President of Strategic Alliances at Armis. “We are honoured to have been selected for this award and are eager to demonstrate to the global market that together we can make digital transformation safe for all unmanaged and IoT devices, deployed globally across different mobile network operators.”
Winners of the Security Excellence Awards are selected based on three elements: innovation, relevance, and success.
