One thing that intrigued us with Armor versus our other managed security provider was Armor’s cloud aptitude and competency. Working with the SOC has provided great resource-saving value. The team members are knowledgeable about their clients, as well as security, so there aren’t unnecessary escalation events sent to our team to deal with.

Armor Anywhere – How It Works

The Armor Anywhere Security-as-a-Service is comprised of four key components: Armor Anywhere Agent, Spartan Threat Prevention and Response Platform, Security Operations Center and Armor Management Portal.

Armor Anywhere Agent

The Armor Anywhere service utilizes a powerful agent installed across your on-premise, cloud or hybrid environments. The Armor Anywhere Agent leverages best-of-breed security capabilities to secure your environment. Once installed, the Armor Anywhere Agent defends your environment at the host level, monitoring inbound and outbound traffic, gathering logs, monitoring changes to critical files and providing customers with patch status and updates. The Armor Anywhere Agent is lightweight and can be deployed in just a few minutes, accelerating speed-to-protection

Security Capabilities

INTRUSION DETECTION With visibility to inbound and outbound activity at the host, Armor inspects anomalous traffic against predefined policies – detecting attacks like generic SQL injections, generic XSS attacks, DoS and generic web app effects. This service provides an agent-based Intrusion Detection System on the installed host for network traffic analysis and reporting based around policies defined by Armor.

FILE INTEGRITY MONITORING FIM is designed to monitor critical system file locations and alert when your files have changed. Monitor critical operating system (OS) files for changes that may allow threat actors to control your environment. File integrity monitoring (FIM) utilizes OS-specific policies and provides Armor log visibility to assist in reviewing security events.

MALWARE PROTECTION Armor protects your environment from harmful malware and botnets deployed to capture your data, monitor your activity or leverage your servers for illicit activity. In the event an alert is created, Armor’s threat analysts begin an in-depth investigation. Armor utilizes an enterprise-class malware protection application and deploys the application agent within the Armor Anywhere Agent.

LOG MANAGEMENT Log Management captures and documents, analyzes and reports on log events from firewalls, servers, operating system logs, and other applications to determine their validity and severity. Customers can view 30 days of logs in the Armor Management Portal and store up to 13 months of log events consistent with applicable regulatory requirements.

VULNERABILITY SCANNING Armor scans for potential points of risk to help reduce the surface area of attack. Weekly scheduled scans provide you a visible audit report to identify the vulnerabilities that attackers could use to penetrate your network, so you can develop your remediation plan.

PATCH MONITORING Patch Monitoring provides visibility into your environment to identify critical OS-level patches for resolution. Armor provides you visibility into your environment running the Armor Anywhere Agent, so you can ensure your OS is consistently up to date.

CONTINUOUS THREAT HUNTING– Proactive hunting within our data lake identifies threat actor activity not alerted to by our SIEM leveraging the research and expertise of Armor’s TRU team as well as threat intel from a variety of sources.

BRAND AND REPUTATION MONITORING – Monitors public and dark web for threat activity against our Armor customer base using a mix of automation and targeted threat research.

Shared Responsibility

Public clouds like AWS and Azure are effective for raw infrastructure, but public cloud customers are still tasked with managing and securing data workloads. Armor reduces the burden of these challenges for your organization by sharing both risk and responsibility. Purpose-built to achieve a secure and compliant posture for your data, Armor Anywhere makes it easy to balance security, cost-effectiveness and cloud agility.

ARMOR MANAGEMENT PORTAL

The Armor Management Portal (AMP) provides you with a single-pane-of-glass visibility into your security program providing real-time visibility and management of your security controls.

Security Metrics to Benchmark Your Success
Integrated within AMP, the Security Analytics dashboard delivers real-time visibility powered by advanced correlation and analytics to help you make smarter decisions.
