The App Access Cloud solves the issue of implicitly open network access and removes the pain points of network-based security associated with Virtual Private Networks (VPN’s) which can be complex, slow to deploy, hard to manage and inflexible. “Axis Security offers a great new platform to enhance and expand the cybersecurity portfolio we offer our clients,” said Mark Jones, CEO, BlackLake Security. “We know the founders and team very well and respect and appreciate their in-depth knowledge of this space.” Comprehensive cybersecurity portfolio Application Access Cloud is positioned to be part of a comprehensive cybersecurity portfolio “This is a game changer for companies that want to rapidly enable both their partners and employees with remote access to applications from anywhere, no client software required. Our customers need a zero trust solution that solves problems in hours, not months or years. Axis delivers that and more.” Application Access Cloud is positioned to be part of a comprehensive cybersecurity portfolio enabling resellers to bring incremental value to existing solutions. The Application Access Cloud connects users and their applications and mitigates many security risks exposed by legacy access solutions and vulnerable applications.

The program offers partners a SaaS subscription model, strong end-user experience, fast proof of concept and lightning-quick deployments that easily integrate with and complement existing technology choices to deliver a strong return on investment.
