Armis, the American cyber security vendor known for its agentless security for IoT and unmanaged devices has appointed Sektor as its distribution partner across Australia and New Zealand. With a large global customer base, including 20% of the Fortune 100, Armis provides security and asset management of IT assets beyond the traditional realm. This includes traditional enterprise markets but additionally others like healthcare, manufacturing and retail. Armis’ unique out-of-band sensing technology enables it to discover and analyse all managed, un-managed, un-agentable and IoT devices – from traditional devices like laptops and smartphones through to new smart devices like smart TVs, webcams, printers, HVAC systems, industrial control systems and PLCs, medical devices, kiosks, POS terminals and people counters.
Andrew Draper, VP of Asia Pacific & Japan for Armis said: “Having secured several prestigious Australian corporate clients, in government, healthcare and telecommunications, Armis wants to build on that success and penetrate the Australian market more broadly. We needed an Australian distributor with a strong base of partners across a range of industries, in order to drive awareness and sales.”
“Having already appointed Sektor in New Zealand, we saw that they had equally strong relationships in Australia, were highly regarded and knew their market extremely well. Appointing Sektor in Australia was a natural extension of the relationship and one that was a perfect fit for our growth objectives.”
For Sektor, Armis is a strong complementary addition to their existing portfolio.
Cameron Arnold, General Manager of Sektor Australia said: “As distributors of a broad range of traditional and IoT devices, the ability to offer a solution to protect those same devices from cyber security exposures is a very natural fit. Sektor is very excited and proud to be selected as distributor for Armis, and to be able to add this ground-breaking solution to our portfolio. This will add immense value to our partners and their end customers.”
