Customer
Brief

Armis® is the leading agentless, enterprise-class device security platform designed to address the new threat landscape of unmanaged and IoT devices.

Fortune 1000 companies trust their real-time and continuous protection to see and control all managed, unmanaged, and IoT devices – from traditional devices like laptops and smartphones to new smart devices like smart TVs, webcams, printers, HVAC systems, industrial control systems, and PLCs, medical devices and more. Armis provides passive and unparalleled cybersecurity asset management, risk management, and automated enforcement.

The company was recently acquired by Insight Partners at a valuation of $1.1 billion.

Key
Challenges

Armis’ cloud environment is constantly scaling. They were looking for a solution that would automatically manage their commitments in real-time and relieve them from manual forecasting.

Key
Results

Armis’ engineers can take cost optimization off their to-do list while reducing their EC2 spend by 53%.

The Challenge:

Managing Cloud Costs at Hyper Scale

Fast-growing cybersecurity startup, Armis grew by 200% in just a short period of time. But as they continued to scale rapidly, managing cloud costs became a tremendous challenge. With thousands of instances running on AWS to support a massive data pipeline, which produced around 10 billion events per day, their resource needs were in constant fluctuation, which made predicting costs incredibly difficult. On top of that, the company was constantly investing in new and innovative technologies to drive product innovation. But with each new technology comes changes in application needs, which resulted in even less predictability, and increased costs. 

As a SaaS company, Armis’s end customers directly impacted their cloud infrastructure.This meant, Armis’s engineers needed to constantly sync between the business side and the development side to manually manage their commitment portfolio. Roi Amitay, Head of DevOps, knew this approach was not scalable or sustainable. 

He noticed that EC2 was the main culprit of the company’s growing cloud bill. Their dynamic nature made them unable to commit to Reserved Instances, which would provide them with the steep discount they needed. Furthermore, in the areas where they did leverage Reserved Instances, the coverage was not optimal. Armis needed a solution that:

  • Would enable them to leverage savings despite their dynamic environment
  • Provided true flexibility, no commitment necessary
  • Adapts to changes in scale
  • Was easy to implement and completely effortless to run

That’s where Zesty came in. 

The Solution:

Automate coverage of Armis’ entire EC2 fleet

After implementing Zesty, Armis was able to save 53% on EC2 with zero engineering effort. Was it magic? Well, almost!

Zesty’s advanced machine learning algorithms analyzed both Armis’s account’s usage and the RI Marketplace behavior in real time. This enabled Zesty to completely automate the full cycle of their RI fleet. As a result, our algorithms could account for both the company’s scale along with the marketplace fluctuations and adjust them accordingly.

The Result:

Zesty’s Autonomous Savings

The result was tremendous discounts on EC2, with no effort whatsoever. Most importantly, it enabled Armis to run their business at any scale, without wasting precious engineering resources on forecasting, predicting, and managing cloud infrastructure.

  • Instantly grab the most lucrative deals on the RI Marketplace
  • Increase RI coverage from 45% to 99.99%
  • Use real-time prediction to eliminate manual forecasting for good
  • Continuously optimize savings according to real-time application needs

Best of all, Zesty’s risk-free buy back guarantee and easy implementation made getting started a no brainer.
