Cybersecurity asset management is the process of identifying, on a continuous, real-time basis, the IT assets that your organization owns and the potential security risks or gaps that affect each one. Cybersecurity asset management empowers your security team, as well as the overall business, with the visibility it needs to build a comprehensive security strategy that mitigates threats quickly and proactively. Cybersecurity asset management helps ensure that security teams detect threats before they evolve into serious problems. By continuously monitoring the IT estate for new deployments and risks, teams don’t have to wait until they detect an active attack in order to respond.

Axonius is the cybersecurity asset management platform that gives organizations a comprehensive asset inventory, uncovers security solution coverage gaps, and automatically validates and enforces security policies. By seamlessly integrating with over 300 security and management solutions, Axonius is deployed in minutes, improving cyber hygiene immediately. Covering millions of devices at customers like the New York Times, Schneider Electric, Landmark Health, AppsFlyer, and many more, Axonius was named the Most Innovative Startup of 2019 at the prestigious RSAC Innovation Sandbox and was named to the CNBC Upstart 100 list and Forbes 20 Rising Stars.
