Axonius, the leader in cybersecurity asset management, today announced that it received the inaugural CISOs Choice Award for Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) from Security Current. Drawing from real-world experience, a panel of CISO judges across industries selected the winning solutions and providers based on differentiation and their ability to demonstrate value.
A panel of CISO judges selected @AxoniusInc as the @SecurityCurrent CISOs Choice Award Winner for Governance, Risk, and Compliance based on the company’s differentiation and ability to demonstrate value to security and GRC teams.
The Axonius Cybersecurity Asset Management platform bolsters GRC efforts by providing a comprehensive, always up-to-date asset inventory and enabling cybersecurity and GRC teams to automatically enforce, validate, and remediate security and compliance requirements. This ability is critical for companies in regulated industries like finance, healthcare, and the public sector, as well as those that adhere to industry frameworks.
“Companies spend millions each year in preparation for and participation in compliance audits and risk assessments. However, it is difficult to accurately assess risk and avoid negative outcomes without a complete device inventory. This is even more difficult in dynamically changing cloud environments,” said Dean Sysman, co-founder and CEO, Axonius. “When customers are able to know exactly what assets, cloud instances, and users they have, they have the foundation they need to know anytime anything deviates from their overall security policy, ensuring continuous compliance.”
Axonius takes a fundamentally new approach to an old, pervasive challenge that’s only becoming more complex—cybersecurity asset management. The platform integrates with nearly 300 vendor products to ingest, consolidate, normalize, and rationalize asset management inventories across products. By using Axonius to automate GRC efforts and continuously monitor for changes, organizations can save an average of 89 person-hours of labor 19 times per year.
GRC is one of dozens of use cases for which Axonius has received honors. It also helps with IoT device discovery, incident response, vulnerability management, and security operations.
