Axis Security Named to Inc. Magazine’s Best Workplaces 2021

Staying Connected While Forced Apart

SAN MATEO, CA – Axis Security, the leader in Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA), has been named to Inc. magazine’s annual list of the Best Workplaces for 2021. Hitting newsstands May 18 in the May/June 2021 issue, and as part of a prominent feature, the list is the result of a wide-ranging and comprehensive measurement of American companies that have created exceptional workplaces and company culture whether teams are operating in person or remotely.

“Axis was launched in March 2020 as the world was going into lockdown. Growing the company and hiring great talent looked like it was going to be a real challenge. What we ended up realizing was that COVID shrunk the world and made candidates from all corners of the globe available to us. Being fully remote also made us mindful of the challenges we were all facing as individuals. As a result, we stayed really connected to our people, but not just for work. We listened with empathy. We went to great lengths to let the team know that even though we were physically apart, we were together in our shared commitment to them as people and professionals. This accolade from Inc. Magazine is recognition of those efforts, and the collaborative, respectful, and diverse culture we have built at Axis,” said Dor Knafo, Axis Security co-founder and chief executive officer.

Axis Security’s Application Access Cloud™ has a unique architecture that makes it amazingly simple to deploy, use, and manage while delivering more secure access — keeping users off the corporate network, and reducing risk by isolating applications. It enables more use cases than any other ZTNA solution accommodating any application or user as well as latency-sensitive and multi-directional access scenarios. Axis Security is changing the game with a ZTNA solution that fully replaces and goes beyond legacy VPNs, without replicating or changing the existing network.

Collecting data from thousands of submissions, Inc. singled out 429 honorees this year. Each nominated company took part in an employee survey, conducted by Quantum Workplace, on topics including management effectiveness, perks, and fostering employee growth. The organization’s benefits were also audited to determine the company’s overall score and ranking.

“The definition of a positive workplace has changed drastically over the past year,” says Inc. magazine editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “Stocked fridges and nap pods were no longer perks many companies could rely on once work went remote. So, this year’s list is even more important as it reveals organizations that continue to enrich the lives of its employees amid a pandemic.”
