How to authenticate Armis for use with Tines

Updated over a week ago

The Armis Asset Intelligence Platform discovers and analyzes all enterprise digital assets—hardware, software, cloud or virtual--from traditional devices like laptops and smartphones to cloud workloads and new unmanaged IoT devices like smart TVs, webcams, printers, HVAC systems, Industrial Control Systems, medical devices and more. Armis discovers all asset types, provides context about them (owner, location, dependencies, vulnerabilities) and continuously analyzes their behavior to identify both operational and cyber risks to protect them against cyber attacks.
