Epiphany Systems, the offensive context-aware platform in the cybersecurity sector, announced a strategic technology partnership with Armis to deliver joint clients a safe and easy way to detect and prioritize day-to-day defensive security decisions.

Epiphany is providing a world-class platform that uncovers every possible path of attack through a ranking system based on attack simplicity and target criticality. This provides enterprise teams with unprecedented insights into how they could be attacked, as well as the ‘whole-state’ predictive intelligence required to address such findings. Epiphany’s invention is based on complex and context-rich attack path models that generate important insights for a company’s security.

Customers can identify key attack pathways that exist across OT and IT environments using the Epiphany Intelligence Platform in association with Armis’ asset and security posture data. As a result, a risk reduction and security analysis of exploitability is strengthened by those attack pathways.

“The joint power of Epiphany and Armis will deliver the market a unique opportunity to change the security conversation from being actionable to being impactful. Given the extremely valuable data produced by Armis and Epiphany’s ability to analyze it from the offensive perspective, we give organizations the ability to choose the course of action that not only reduces the most risk, but in ways that are feasible,” said Rob Bathurst, CTO of Epiphany Systems.

Epiphany presents all possible attack paths and ranks them according to the asset’s criticality and the ease with which an attacker can exploit them. Through a dynamic goal-centric approach security teams get all meaningful connections throughout the attack path. For decision makers, Epiphany’s future “Exploitability Index” gives the fast context of complicated risk situations of the “whole-state.” This is the result of approaching an organization’s defensive tools and capabilities from an offensive goal-oriented perspective.

“The intersection of operational technology and cybersecurity has evolved as organizations have digitally transformed their business, and that has surfaced an entirely new risk dynamic. The combination of our unified device and asset discovery capabilities with Epiphany’s ability to analyze the outputs from any security tool or device enables organizations to take action to protect the environment when threats or behavioral anomalies occur. This partnership enables teams to move toward a ‘real-time to trigger’ mode of more efficient detection and response,” said Michael Bimonte, Public Sector CTO, Armis.
