Axis Application Access Cloud

The Axis Security Application Access Cloud platform enforces continuous, adaptive security control at the application layer over access to sensitive corporate resources to deliver the critical ZTNA element of a SASE solution. Its application isolation technology keeps users separate from the network, and the application, greatly reducing the threat surface and eliminating the possibility of a potentially hostile user from gaining access to other network systems. Its global cloud service scales with demand and integrates with existing security to power adaptive policies and automate management. In addition, with its continuous monitoring of every user and every request, Axis provides a level of insight and analytics on user behavior and activity that’s not available in traditional access solutions.

About Axis Security

Axis Security simply and securely connects users anywhere on any device, to any application through one simple centrally managed service. The Application Access Cloud is an ideal solution to replace multiple disparate and complicated secure access technologies such as VPNs, virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) and inline cloud access security broker (CASB) services using a single Zero Trust cloud platform.  With Axis, users never touch the network, or the application, and every request is validated, authenticated, and based on that individual’s policy settings. This is the future of enterprise access. Headquartered in San Mateo, California with research and development in Tel Aviv, Israel, the privately-held company is backed by Canaan Partners, Ten Eleven Ventures and Cyberstarts.
