“Axonius has transformed the way companies manage and secure their assets, solving foundational problems for teams struggling to control complexity,” said Matt Weigand, partner at Accel. “Axonius has achieved tremendous growth in such a short time, and we believe that their deep understanding of IT and security challenges have positioned them to be the system of record for all infrastructure.”

Axonius exploded onto the scene in 2017 with a simple, effective approach to solving a decades-old problem of asset visibility and security in complex IT environments. Providing immediate value recognised by a rapidly growing customer base, the company quickly became one of the industry’s fastest-growing.
