NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cybersecurity asset management company Axonius today announced it was named the 2019 SC Award winner for Rookie Security Company of the Year. The award was presented by SC Media at a gala on March 5, 2019, in San Francisco.
As enterprises continue to expand their networks – adding myriad solutions and devices driven by BYOD, IoT and cloud – asset management remains one of the most important and fundamental yet commonly overlooked requirements in cybersecurity. Axonius is addressing this issue with an easy-to-use, comprehensive solution that aggregates existing data from more than 100 management and security solutions to provide actionable visibility and security policy enforcement for all assets and users.
“It’s an incredible honor to be recognized almost a year after launching the company,” said Dean Sysman, co-founder and CEO of Axonius. “Asset management is a fundamental issue that has and will continue to affect enterprises across the world, and we’re excited to bring to market a solution that finally solves this universal challenge.”
“Axonius has found a truly innovative way to crack the code around solving the security practitioner’s most glaring problem: how to identify the assets they are charged with protecting,” said Jim Rutt, CIO at Dana Foundation, a philanthropic organization that supports brain research. “Their unique approach of integrating key applications ensures a 360-degree view of the organization’s technology assets and, more importantly, the relationships between these assets to form a holistic foundation by which an organization can base its security strategy.”
This award is the latest in a series of accolades and market momentum the company built in 2018 and continues in 2019. Axonius was also named the “Most Innovative Startup” in the 2019 RSA Conference Innovation Sandbox Contest for its groundbreaking technology that has the potential to transform the cybersecurity industry. In February, the company closed a $13 million Series A funding round led by Bessemer Venture Partners and welcomed Amit Karp, partner at Bessemer Venture Partners, to its board of directors.
