ISRAEL - Unreached Possibilities in Cyber Security

Arno Froese

How many devices do you have? Which of them are connected to the internet? What safety protocols do you have in place to make sure your devices aren’t being affected by malicious software?

Now, considering you probably had to sift through your home and list out all of your devices, as opposed to being able to do so off-hand, imagine what the situation would be for a Fortune 500 company or a hospital with thousands of systems running simultaneously.

What would happen to these companies if they were infected with malicious software? 

Enter Armis Security.

The first challenge Armis addressed was an ability to map out these devices—with a complete real-time continuous image—for large organizations, so that they have some idea of what they possess. The other challenge was how to secure all of these devices.

These two simple goals became, what today, encompasses the Armis mission, “how to come in and catalog every single asset and device you have, no matter what it is, provide that Google map, if you will, of how an organization looks like, and then on top of that, add the risk and security information needed to be able to counter threats,” Armis cofounder and CTO Nadir Izrael explained.

Armis’ answer was, in a sense, if they could see enough examples of devices in the real world, then they could eventually build a model for how they behave. Today, Armis tracks over a billion devices worldwide, essentially teaching Armis what the day in a device looks like.

Today, over 35 of the Fortune 100s are clients of Armis, many with incredibly large environments that face attack on a daily basis. So, the idea is that the Armis system is getting smarter and smarter day by day, leveraging these data sets to protect companies around the world.

“Armis from the get-go was built to be a platform, and it wasn’t built to solve a particular feature. It was built as a platform to protect all devices all over the world,” Izrael said. “It’s a very ambitious task, considering there are all types of companies around the world solving different subsets of that problem.”

Arno's Commentary

We have selected just a few paragraphs from this 8-page report to reveal the “unreached possibilities,” as the article states. While this writer is extremely limited in his knowledge of such systems—not surprisingly, originating in Israel—it stands to reason that mankind will be enabled to do the impossible.

The key to the apparent success of Artemis Security is enumerating every single workable electronic item in a household, a giant office complex, or the entire world; all must be accounted for.

That indeed is a picture of the coming global society. Every single person will have to be registered, which is already the case in each country. Yet this will need to be done globally. From that point on, the impossibility of tracking criminal activity, for example, will then be made possible. Imagine, a world without crime. That is still an unreached possibility, but in due time will be implemented.

The prophet Jeremiah spoke about the people of Israel when he said, “For they have healed the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace” (Jeremiah 8:11).
