Axis Security was founded in 2018, and closed a $14 million Series A round led by Ten Eleven Ventures in March as well as a $32 million Series B round led by Canaan Partners in September. The San Mateo, Calif.-based company employs 56 people today, up from just 23 employees a year ago, according to LinkedIn.
The company unveiled the Axis Security Partner Program (ASPP) for VARs, systems integrators, MSSPs, OEM partners and distributors in April to help enterprises offer secure application access for their remote workforce. The two-tier program includes business development opportunities, training, joint marketing, partner collateral, marketing co-op funds, sales leads and field account planning.
Axis Security in September strengthened its secure application access platform with policy controls based on dynamic directory integration, disarm and reconstruct capabilities, and application layer visibility for incident response investigations. These enhancements ensure organizations can deliver zero trust access to third-party supply chain partners, contractors and employees.
