Company will prioritize helping Federal agencies remain compliant with asset management mandates
NEW YORK (PRWEB)FEBRUARY 06, 2020
Axonius, the cybersecurity asset management company, today announced the expansion of its Cybersecurity Asset Management Platform for use by Federal agencies. The company has also hired Bobby McLernon to lead its Federal division, as vice president of Federal sales. The move into Federal will not only enable the company to further boost revenue growth, but will demonstrate the platform’s highly scalable capabilities.
Working alongside Bobby will be Andy Oliver and Ray Ciesinski as Federal sales executives. The team’s priorities for the coming year include further developing the federal marketplace by building out offerings specific to civilian, Department of Defense, and intelligence agencies.
The proliferation of devices in federal agencies has resulted in rapid adoption of cybersecurity solutions to manage them. In fact, total cybersecurity spending across all federal agencies is set to increaseby approximately 5 percentthis year. While these solutions are necessary and provide valuable security, they also result in siloed information that gives little visibility into the big picture. By adopting a solution like Axonius, federal agencies immediately gain a unified view of all their assets and their coverage, empowering agencies to ask questions, get answers, and take action to enforce their security policies.
“Axonius is a proven solution that helps numerous industries better understand what assets they have, identify security coverage gaps, and automate their security policy enforcement, and I’m thrilled to now deliver the same value to federal agencies,” McLernon said. “Federal customers suffer from the same pains as commercial, only on a larger scale. As a result, having access to a credible and comprehensive asset inventory is critical to federal cybersecurity missions; without it, they’re flying blind.”
The level of visibility Axonius provides is essential for federal compliance requirements. The Axonius platform helps federal agencies meet the standards of many of the metrics within the NIST Risk Management Framework, including NIST-800-53, by providing timely and exact data for security asset management. Using the Axonius platform, federal agencies can collect and correlate device, patch, user, and rogue device data on desktop, laptop, and mobile devices, helping to close security gaps. The platform can then quickly show which devices have not received required agents through the use of nearly 200 security and management solutions called adapters, which connect to collectors already employed in many federal cyber centers today.
“If you're a federal agency, the risk of cyberattack is more top-of-mind than ever,” said Joseph Hoban, senior vice president of sales at Axonius. “Expanding our sales to federal agencies is an exciting and essential move for us at Axonius, and we’ve made it a point to ensure our federal partners have the ability to more accurately and quickly track their assets to achieve a more unified view of their environment and better ensure compliance.”
