Today, Axonius announces its partnership with leading cloud security provider, Wiz, as the company unveils its Wiz Integration (WIN) platform. Together, we’re providing IT and security teams with greater context and visibility across hybrid environments, and at the same time, reducing the complexity that comes with trying to figure out where their data resides.
Today’s IT environment is increasingly complex. With an expanding attack surface, organizations are required to adjust to protect an expanding perimeter. Many traditional and legacy systems that were sufficient just 10 years ago weren’t built for the cloud, and as a result, many security and IT teams are left with disparate systems, managing their on-prem and cloud infrastructure separately. In many cases, these environments are treated differently – managed by different security teams, with different systems, that leave a gray area ripe for exploitation. When a breach does occur, this siloed approach makes it hard for organizations to quickly identify and take action. As a result, they often lose precious time to halt bad actors and remediate security gaps.
With the Axonius and Wiz integration, mutual customers gain complete visibility across their entire environment — both on prem and in the cloud under a single pane of glass. Wiz correlates real-time cloud activity partnered with vulnerability tracking and analysis to surface the unknowns, highlighting threats and mapping attack paths in a customer’s cloud environment. Axonius then aggregates Wiz’s vulnerability findings with other connected data sources, like ServiceNow, Snowflake, and other commonly used security tools, to provide security and IT teams with a unified view of all users, devices, SaaS apps, and cloud workloads to efficiently uncover and prioritize security gaps, automate security policy validation, and take action – whether in the cloud or on-prem.
Axonius and Wiz together deliver enhanced visibility and enriched asset context across an organization’s hybrid environment, marrying comprehensive asset management with absolute cloud security to help strengthen customer’s cloud security posture in a variety of areas, including:
- Data Validation and Enrichment: Axonius collects Wiz findings, including Wiz issues such as open and in-progress vulnerabilities, and cross-references those findings against other data sources connected in Axonius. This helps compare agent deployment and better classify risk.
- Reduced Time to Remediation: With the asset-related data Axonius fetches and correlates from Wiz, organizations are able to tag those assets with vulnerabilities, misconfigurations, and other operational issues and trigger actions that can be pushed to Wiz to quickly and efficiently remediate gaps in security policy.
- Comprehensive Attack Surface Management: Axonius ingests and correlates cloud asset information found by Wiz with over 650 connected data sources to provide organizations with a complete and accurate asset inventory. With a truly holistic view of their environment combined with granular asset and vulnerability information, customers can identify and remediate security gaps more efficiently.
“Wiz and Axonius have a common goal: to reduce risk through smart action. Together, we help customers by providing them with better asset context and vulnerability prioritization,” said Ofri Shur, CTO and co-founder at Axonius. “We are excited about this integration, which brings our respective expertise and technology together to provide the ultimate visibility into cloud environments. This partnership reflects our shared commitment to helping our customers improve their security posture through a more comprehensive asset inventory, and we can’t wait to see the amazing results that this collaboration will bring.”
"A best-in-class cloud operating model reduces risk, improves ROI, and drives efficiency," said Oron Noah, director of product management, Wiz. "That value proposition is what lies at the heart of WIN, and what partners like Axonius are helping to make a reality. This collaborative philosophy brings real customer benefits and we are so thankful to have Axonius on board for this launch.”
