Armis | October 04, 2021
Smarttech247, the multi award-winning MDR cybersecurity organisation and Armis, the leading unified asset visibility and security platform provider announced today that they have formed a strategic partnership to offer their global customers the opportunity to increase asset visibility, security and threat detection across their entire ecosystems. With IT and IoT increasingly converging on OT environments, it’s not enough anymore to simply identify OT devices – this approach will not give these organisations the full picture needed to combat modern cybersecurity threats.
The strategic partnership with Armis enables Smarttech247 to seamlessly enhance their current offering to deliver 100% visibility across all assets and device types. Customers can subsequently identify risks and gaps with a simple integration that will allow them to not only focus on their managed devices but also their new unidentified environment of unmanaged OT/ICS and IoT devices.
This partnership will give our customers greater visibility and a bird’s eye view over the whole organisation. Armis will build on our cybersecurity asset management, risk management, and automated enforcement to all assets within our clients’ environments
Raluca Saceanu, COO at Smarttech247
The partnership will provide increased value to clients looking for consolidation of monitoring and security analysis for IoT/ICS/OT environments. Smarttech247 will add the Armis security platform to its cybersecurity offerings to bring customers real-time detection tactics and techniques and allow them to benefit from Armis’ unique ability to see all assets across a client’s ecosystem.
“Smarttech247 enabled the seamless integration of the Armis platform into our security platforms. This integration significantly increased our asset visibility and security analysis across our OT/ICS environment. It also allows us to monitor not only our managed devices but also our new, unidentified environment of unmanaged OT/ICS, loT devices,” said Luis Cunha, Head of Security Engineering and Operations at Aptiv.
“Strategically this partnership will benefit our shared customers and prospects, allowing a wider user community access to our collective award-winning abilities. One of the biggest risks firms are facing today is from unseen, unmanaged and legacy connected devices that many organisations have little and incomplete visibility of, let alone the know-how to manage them. Having complete, real-time visibility of all devices coupled with Smarttech247 will benefit our customers by giving them all the information they need to make better risk-related decisions,” said Jamie Andrews, EMEA Partner Director at Armis.
In the recent Mitre Engenuity Att&ck Evaluations Armis provided 100% visibility of all IT, IoT & OT/ICS assets with real-time detection of all initial access and lateral movement. In addition, Armis also achieved 100% coverage of all known ICS threat tactics.

GlobalLogic_min | December 01, 2021
GlobalLogic Inc., a Hitachi Group Company and leader in Digital Engineering, today announced that it has been selected by Cybereason, the leader in operation-centric attack protection, to help develop its next-generation cyber security platform and services. Deployed by large enterprises, governments, and major cloud providers worldwide, Cybereason’s future-ready attack protection spans across endpoints, the enterprise, the cloud, and everywhere the defenders battle cyber criminals. The collaboration will draw on GlobalLogic’s broad and deep expertise in security and data management software across devices through to the cloud, including the integration of advanced artificial intelligence (AI).
The program is one of the largest won by GlobalLogic in this field to date. It requires quickly scaling to hundreds of specialized engineers supporting Cybereason’s development roadmap over the next year. This program scope highlights the market’s need for stronger, better cybersecurity as cloud use, network expansions and other technology usage continued their upward trend and surged during the pandemic.
“Cyber threats have become considerably more frequent and sophisticated in recent years. We’ve become dangerously more vulnerable in areas traditional security solutions could not adequately protect—the network and the cloud,” said Rajaram Radhakrishnan, CRO, GlobalLogic. “Having operated in the cybersecurity space for more than a decade, GlobalLogic has become adept at successfully responding to complex requirements. Cybereason is a premier example of a crucial innovator building disruptive defense solutions, redefining what government-grade protection can be. We are honored to now be a part of their team.”
Cybereason delivers the most comprehensive protection available on the market today, analyzing more than 23 trillion security-related events per week—five times the volume of any other market solution. Using its patented Malicious Operations (MalOps™) engine, Cybereason reveals the full attack story across every device, user identity, application, and cloud deployment. One of Cybereason’s key solutions delivering this capability is the company’s Extended Detection and Response (XDR) solution—a unified detection and response tool that thwarts malicious operations across the entire IT stack. XDR is one of the several advanced technologies that GlobalLogic’s team will help Cybereason develop and enhance through the partnership.
“Cybereason’ operation-centric security approach is helping defenders combat sophisticated and persistent threats to their organizations. While other companies have security analysts chasing alerts without offering valuable insight, Cybereason helps organizations around the world leverage our award-winning technology each day to outthink and outpace attackers,GlobalLogic’s track record along with its responsiveness and collaborative approach to R&D stood out as major factors in finalizing our partnership. Together, we will deliver next-gen cyber defense solutions that will help technology users better control their sensitive data and operations—no matter where they reside.”
