- Use Cases
See how Axonius is used to solve a variety of different use cases across security and IT.
The Axonius Cybersecurity Asset Management Platform correlates asset data from existing sources to provide an always up-to-date inventory, uncover security gaps, and automate action — giving you the confidence to control complexity.
Following the digital breadcrumbs to investigate cyber incidents used to be tricky — but those days are over. In just minutes, Axonius provides a comprehensive view into all assets, uncovers associated vulnerabilities, and expedites forensic investigations.
A credible, comprehensive cyber asset inventory is the first step in vulnerability management. If you don’t know what assets exist, you can’t map vulnerabilities to them to understand where you may be exposed to threats.
With Axonius, you can discover, track, prioritize, enrich, remediate, and report on all vulnerabilities across all devices in your environment — facilitating a more efficient, accurate vulnerability management program for your organization.
Agent-based tools only see where they’re deployed, leaving blindspots and increasing organizational risk. Siloed approaches don’t work, and disparate data sets don’t provide the information you need to mitigate risk.
Axonius orchestrates asset visibility, whether or not an agent is present. By looking from various system points of view, Axonius can see where agents are deployed, where they’re missing, and when they’re malfunctioning.
Obtaining a comprehensive, credible inventory of all assets is a prerequisite for understanding and securing your company’s attack surface. Axonius unifies all assets — internal and external — to strengthen attack surface management. Learn which assets are not properly protected and ensure that cybersecurity controls meet or exceed requirements.
Companies spend more each year on security tools, but they often can’t ensure the tools are deployed everywhere, or that each asset-related vulnerability is found. Axonius, due to our vast adapter network and correlation engine, ensures all assets are identified (regardless of network environment or operational state), protected, managed, and assessed by your security controls.
By nature, SaaS apps are immensely interconnected and complex, making them difficult to secure. Axonius uses adapters (API connections to data sources) and proprietary SaaS discovery tools to identify all known and unknown SaaS applications. This allows the platform to uncover various security risks, including misconfiguration issues, suspicious or malicious behavior, and inappropriate or unauthorized user access.
At the heart of IT asset management (ITAM) is a comprehensive asset inventory, which serves as a single source of truth across multiple business units – most importantly IT operations, enabling operational efficiency, mitigating risk, and maximizing ROI. Axonius delivers that core asset inventory component.
A credible, comprehensive asset inventory is a single source of asset truth across an entire environment. The Axonius correlation engine aggregates, deduplicates, correlates and normalizes data from point-solution security tools you already use, to identify all known assets and discover previously unknown ones.
Endpoint management is the practice of ensuring devices are configured correctly, are protected with necessary security controls, and aligned with IT and security policies. Axonius delivers a comprehensive inventory of all endpoints — regardless of location and type — helping you understand, manage, and protect each device.
A configuration management database (CMDB) is important when tracking and managing IT assets, or responding to security incidents, but rarely provides a complete picture of all assets at any given time. Enriching a CMDB with Axonius data provides a continuously updated CMDB, deconflicting asset data to provide a singular, credible view into any asset.
As more workforces go remote and hybrid, spend on SaaS apps has skyrocketed, driving the need to control licensing management and get better visibility into spend. Axonius SaaS Management helps finance and business operations optimize SaaS utilization and reduce cost by rightsizing licenses and removing redundant SaaS apps.
Axonius Software Management automatically delivers extensive visibility into software applications. It helps IT, financial, and security and risk teams identify software across the technology estate, to identify unauthorized or unwanted software, inform software spend and cost optimization, and reduce risk.
