Armis, an asset visibility and security platform company, has announced the Armis Partner Experience (APEX) Manage Program for MSPs and managed detection and response (MDR) providers.

MSP Workbench Delivered

The APEX Manage Program provides a "powerful service provider ecosystem that can help MSPs and MDRs evolve their businesses in a highly differentiated way," said David Creed, Armis vice president of Worldwide Services Providers. It gives MSPs and MDR providers a multi-tenant workbench they can use to view and secure their customers' digital attack surfaces. This workbench requires no engineering to implement and helps MSPs and MDR providers deliver cyber investigation and threat detection, hunting and remediation services with little to no upfront cost.

In addition, the APEX Manage Program lets MSPs and MDR providers leverage the Armis Asset Intelligence Platform to secure customer devices, the company noted. The Armis Asset Intelligence Platform is an agentless SaaS platform that can be used in conjunction with various IT and security tools. It provides contextual intelligence that MSPs and MDR providers can use to help customers improve their security posture.

Armis Announces Integrations with SentinelOne, Torq

The APEX Manage Program launch comes after Armis and SentinelOne in August 2022 unveiled an extended detection and response (XDR) integration. This integration provides organizations with threat content to help them triage and investigate threats across their devices, the companies said. It also enables organizations to integrate device health, asset metadata and application inventory information into risk models.

Previously, Armis in May 2022 introduced the Armis Enterprise Workflow Automation (EWA) module in conjunction with Torq, a no-code security automation platform provider. Security teams can use this module to automate their workflows and replace manual processes with orchestrated response to events, the companies indicated.

Armis provides cybersecurity asset management, risk management and automated enforcement. It initially launched the APEX Program for channel partners in October 2021. Since that time, over 2,000 sales and technical professionals have received Armis training and certification, resulting in a 200% increase in partner-identified opportunities, the company stated.
