February 5, 2019

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 5, 2019--Cybersecurity asset management company Axonius announced it has been named one of 10 finalists for the RSA® Conference 2019 Innovation Sandbox Contest. On Monday, March 4, Axonius will present its Cybersecurity Asset Management Platform to a panel of industry veteran judges and a live audience in a three-minute quick-pitch and Q&A, competing for the coveted title of “Most Innovative Start Up” at RSA Conference 2019 in San Francisco.

RSAC Innovation Sandbox Contest is the leading platform for entrepreneurial cybersecurity companies to launch their ground-breaking research and innovation in front of venture capitalists, industry experts, senior level business practitioners and thought leaders. The event gives startups visibility and validation that turn into rapid growth and increased funding year after year.

“Every year, our expectations are blown out of the water by the ideas presented at the RSAC Innovation Sandbox Contest, and this year was no exception,” said Sandra Toms, Vice President and Curator of RSA Conference. “The cybersecurity industry needs the bold, bright and innovative ideas being developed by these startups today more than ever. I applaud this year’s finalists on their amazing work and dedication to making our world more secure, and I’m looking forward to seeing the impact they’ll make at RSA Conference and beyond.”

The Axonius Cybersecurity Asset Management Platform provides actionable visibility and security policy enforcement for all assets and users by aggregating existing business data from more than 100 management and security solutions.

The platform creates a single point of view into every asset—including desktops, laptops, servers, cloud instances, mobile devices, IoT and more—and automatically detects if those assets fit within an organization’s security policies. By enabling ongoing, automated security policy validation and decreasing time, money and resources spent gathering critical information, Axonius eliminates onerous cybersecurity asset management tasks for organizations while increasing the overall value and efficiency of cybersecurity investments.

“The security industry has created incredible technologies like AI, deception, and automation, yet organizations still can’t answer the basic questions of how many devices they have and whether they are they secure. This is why we started Axonius,” said Dean Sysman, co-founder and CEO, Axonius. “Axonius is the only cybersecurity asset management platform that gives organizations complete visibility and automated policy validation on all assets, devices, and users. We can’t wait to showcase our solution at RSA Conference and for the world to discover that getting a credible asset inventory and ensuring that security policies are enforced is finally a reality.”

Doors will open to the RSAC Innovation Sandbox Contest at 1:30 p.m. PT on March 4 at the Marriott Marquis in the Yerba Buena Ballroom. The winner will be announced in front of a live audience later that day at 4:30 p.m. PT. Dr. Herbert (Hugh) Thompson returns to emcee the contest, and the panel of five judges includes Asheem Chandna, Partner, Greylock Partners; Patrick Heim, Operating Partner and Chief Information Security Officer, ClearSky; Niloofar Razi Howe, Cybersecurity Entrepreneur and Investor; Shlomo Kramer, CEO and Co-Founder, Cato Networks; and Richard Seiersen, CISO, Author and Advisor.
