Kroll and Armis have partnered to expand cyber preparedness and response services for operational technology (OT) and industrial control systems (ICS) to secure clients far beyond the traditional endpoint. Armis is a market leader in unified asset visibility and security, with a knowledge base of over two billion connected devices, particularly in the health care industry. Asset discovery, network configuration, and traffic flow capabilities provide Kroll incident responders with visibility into ICS and OT environments, which are continuously secured using Kroll Responder, a managed detection and response (MDR) solution.

Marc Brawner, Managing Director, and Global Head of Managed Services for Cyber Risk at Kroll commented, “Identifying and protecting difficult-to-manage OT and IoT devices is an increasingly critical aspect of a modern cyber security program. The proliferation of these devices and related vulnerabilities is opening new avenues of attack by threat actors. By bringing together our extensive experience in responding to thousands of incidents every year with the Armis platform, together we can significantly reduce these risks. We look forward to working with Armis to further strengthen our client’s cyber resiliency.”

Kroll’s experience responding to over 3,200 incidents per year, combined with Armis’ technical visibility and expertise, will drive threat intelligence, detection, and response capabilities. Kroll can reduce the risk exposure of OT and ICS environments for clients, make informed recommendations to improve resilience, and respond in the event of suspicious activity because of the partnership.

Kroll expanded its MDR capabilities by acquiring Redscan in 2021. Armis enhances Kroll’s MDR solution by incorporating Armis’ agentless architecture to secure clients’ environments far beyond the traditional endpoint.

David Creed, Vice President, Worldwide Service Providers at Armis stated, “By leveraging Armis’ industry-leading platform, this partnership will help both Kroll and Armis clients stay better protected against cyber risks. Together, Armis and Kroll are uniquely positioned with their capabilities and offerings to serve organizations across industries, providing enhanced preparedness, response, and unmatched visibility.”
