As hackers become smarter and as the scale of their damage increases, a growing number of cybersecurity firms are trying to persuade traditional businesses to rethink their security strategy. The Israeli startup Axonius today raised $ 13 million in series A to continue this quest.

The tour was led by venture capital firm Bessemer, based in California, said Axonius. Amit Karp de Bessemer joins the board of the startup. YL Ventures, Vertex, WTI and Emerge, who participated in Axonius' $ 4 million seed fund in 2017, renewed their commitment at this new stage.

As our dependence on mobile devices and the Internet of Things (IoT) grows, Axonius helps businesses determine the number of people – and the number of people in the world – is growing. devices – using their network and determining whether they comply with established security policies.

This is a critical business challenge, as a single compromised device can jeopardize the entire system. Axonius indicates that its product can be deployed by a company in one hour and automate the assessment and management of connected devices.

Dean Sysman, CEO and founder of Axonius, "The work of a security team is hard enough, but they spend all their time trying to determine what assets and devices actually exist on their networks and whether they respect the security policies of their company. "

"This investment allows us to evolve Axonius' technology and help businesses securely manage and secure all known and unknown devices in their network," he added.

Axonius has announced that it will use some of the new capital to expand the offering of its flagship Cybersecurity Asset Management Platform. The startup, which currently counts Grouvy Today, AppsFlyer, and Natera among its customers, said they would also invest in developing its customer base.

Today's announcement comes as Axonius made significant progress in the sector, including being one of the top 10 RSA contest finalists, one of the leading cybersecurity conferences.
