We are Armarius Software – Let us help you with security!

Armarius Software – SMS (Scribe Management Suite) is an end node security solution that monitors the user behavior and prevents employees from sending sensitive data out of the network.

Our solution is not strictly a data loss prevention solution, antivirus or malware client.  Our solutions sit above the surface to provide a forensic look into how users use the data they have access to, what they do while working and helps you understand your business flow from within the network.

We have various SMS modules, but most of our clients in Healthcare, Non-for profit, Financial institutions are using Secure, Intelligence and Flow modules.

Our solution also covers regulatory requirements from HIPPA, PCI / PII, NIST, GDPR.  Clients are also using SMS to manage and monitoring IT & HR policies.

A brief description of each of the modules; 

Secure – Provides data loss prevention (DLP) & end point protection (EPP) functions.

  • Discovery – What & Where is sensitive data?
  • Activity – What is the user doing with the data?
  • Destination – Where is the data going?
  • Control – What action is appropriate?

Intelligence – Provides visibility into performance operations, user behavior analytics, application performance, and utilization data.

  • Capture and Monitor – Desktop & Laptop – Customer & Application data
  • Analyze data – User – Machine – Application and Forensic data collection
  • Optimize Results – User Productivity – Back Office Support – Call Center Efficiency – Risk Mitigation Compliance

Support – Provides information from the desktop when applications throw error messages.  This module helps IT understand what the user did to create errors within applications

  • Error – Tracking and Handling – Track when errors occur, automate the repair of common errors
  • Windows Log Management – Track windows log with the agent to centralize windows logs.
  • Process Prevention – Prevent unwanted processes from starting

Flow – Provides automation for workflow processes and provides comprehensive data migration.

  • Workflow Automation – Leverage existing IT assets & applications, reduce operator errors, eliminate redundant task and reduce cost.
  • Data migration – perform single & multi-directional migration between any source and target destination.

The SMS software is agent-based and is installed on the user desktop/laptop and only requires 40 MB of data.  The SMS software is run on your server which can be any Windows device or Linux device. We have no access to your data.

If sensitive data and intellectual property are a critical part of your business, then securing the end node user with our SMS software is an essential solution to your business.

How can you know what your end users are doing?

Breaching the end node

As many as 70% of data breaches occur at the end node. While big technology shops can afford the complex tools and dedicated support to secure their end nodes, most smaller companies can’t.

Armarius Software has a solution to this critical problem. With SMS—Scribe Management Suite—Armarius provides an affordable bundle of tools, policies, and services to mitigate the risk of data breaches.

Installed directly at the end node, SMS creates a proactive security environment that prevents data loss before it happens. The software agent, which is less than 40 mb, locks down the four major leak points on the end node—print, USB, Web, and email—preventing breaches caused by both user error and malicious behavior or theft.

Because it is a fully automated and integrated system, SMS tackles data loss prevention efficiently, from every angle:

  • Compliance: Rather than relying on employees to comply with complicated written security policies that they may not fully understand, SMS allows companies to enforce their security policies electronically.
  • Oversight: Network end users pose the biggest security risk to any organization. From the minute users log in to the minute they log out, SMS is collecting data to better understand what users are doing. The data that is collected can be employed not just to prevent policy violations but to improve productivity as well.
  • Sensitive Data. Nobody wants to leave sensitive data unsecured. SMS automatically locates sensitive data files on your network—before it’s too late.
  • Data Collection and Analysis. With the ability to generate over 50 reports, SMS is designed to eliminate many of the tedious and time-consuming data collection and analysis tasks typically associated with DLP.

By automating and integrating all aspects of the DLP process, Armarius Software – SMS is able to provide powerful tools and built-in support to rival the big technology shops—but at a fraction of the cost.

Why wait for data loss to happen?

Your solution should be mandatory in all financial institutions!

Can you honestly state that you have had or hadn’t had a data breach? Can you trust your employees are doing the right thing? 

What you need to know now!  

In today’s world, “It’s not a matter of If, but When”, a data breach will occur within your organization. Are you willing to continue to risk your company’s wellbeing when securing your customer’s sensitive data, protecting your company IP and trying to meet all the new government compliancy regulations that continue to get more stringent every year?  

You or your IT staff has fortified the walls to prevent the outside from getting in. However, employees are your weakest link.  They are the ones that are creating havoc on your network.  Ponemon states it. Look at the statistics. 

The collateral damage of a data breach to your company includes: 

  • Eroding Customer Trust  
  • Damaged Corporate Image 
  • Stiff Government Fines 
  • Customer, Employee or Shareholder Lawsuits 
  • Ongoing Government Compliancy/Audit Issues 

As you know IT demands have grown in complexity while IT budgets have decreased, placing demands on already stressed systems that, in some cases, are forced to remain in firefighting mode to extinguish “raging infernos” with small antiquated “garden hoses”. 

How can someone help you with the fires? 

  1. They should identify areas of vulnerability and significantly reduce your risk of an internal data breach (accidental or malicious). 
  1. They should understand what regulators are looking for and help ensure you pass your next regulatory audit with flying colors. 

As the security experts, Armarius’ employees take pride in working with their clients and understanding their issues and concerns in customizing the appropriate security policies for their clients. Please allow us the opportunity to meet with your organization so we can demonstrate how our solution works and how we can better secure and ensure your financial institution is safe and compliant.   

What we’ve been hearing from financial institutions is, and not to oversell this,, “this is fantastic these guys really know how to help”, and “I’ve never seen a solution with this much functionality”. Sorry if that sounds over the top but I’ve heard that from 3 IT Directors that have demonstrated Secure this month.  Let’s find a time to schedule a demo for you and your team.

How one company’s software solution has stepped up the game against end node threats

Know now, what you need to know How one company’s software solution has stepped up the game against end node threats

Inside attacks created by the user which is the weakest link in the network are the where threats are initiating. Whether they are malicious or accidental, it’s not a matter of if, it’s a matter of when. This solution is not an RMM, Antivirus client or Malware client. It’s is proactive monitoring and managing the end node user solution.

Lisle, Illinois, October 16, 2018     End node data loss occurs because of internal user errors, malicious behavior, and glitches in your system. If you believe that your data or clients information is an essential part of your business, then these are three simple questions you need to ask yourself about how secure is your end node?.

Where is my sensitive data?

Who has access to it?

What are they doing with the sensitive data?

Until now, there has not been one simple solution that could address these three questions.

Armarius Software has released an affordable simple solution called the Scribe Management Suite (SMS) that proactively monitors and manages the user behavior before data can leave your network.

A single small footprint (40mb) agent with various functional modular capabilities secures the user end node, provides additional layers of security and offers automated reporting functionality.  The intuitive console provides IT an easy click-through policy creation and distribution to the agents on the network.

Clients requiring proactive security around the four major leaks points of email, printing, web, and USB can securely lock them down.  Prevention of screenshots of critical information systems, reading pdf files, and locking down network folders to actions rather than just read/write access are other areas the solution can prevent data leakage at the end node.  Credit Card Numbers, Social Security Numbers, and custom content filtering are available.

Companies facing the increased audit requirements for regulatory implementation NIST, HIPPA, SEC, PCI / PII, ISO 17799, GLBA, FERPA, GDPR now have a simple and fast solution for implementation.

Along with the automated report generation from over 50 + standard reports are useful management tools for HR & IT enforcement.  SMS can free up costly IT support helpdesk ticketing by automating and fixing common errors.

If sensitive data and intellectual property are a critical part of your business, then securing the end node user with SMS is essential to your business security.

The fundamental principle of our Scribe Management Suite is understanding and controlling user behavior.

  “Know now, what you need know!”

Why are you helping your employees to hack your data?


It is not a matter of if, but when a data breach will occur within your organization. Companies like yours are the next victims to hackers who can bring your systems down or even worse hold you up for ransom or sell off your sensitive data or IP.

Hackers are continuously probing your network for the weakest link as your data is worth a lot to them.
