Axonius, a cybersecurity asset management and SaaS management startup, has raised $200 million in a Series E extension funding round led by Accel and Lightspeed Venture Partners, with participation from existing investor Stripes. 

The funding aims to fuel global expansion and innovation as demand for the Axonius Platform skyrockets, according to the company's statement. The company claims to have crossed $100 million in annual recurring revenue in 2023 and serving over a dozen Fortune 500 companies and major global organizations.

Axonius growth 

Axonius said that its online platform is used by IT and security teams in over 500 organizations worldwide, managing a vast array of digital infrastructure components. Axonius's unique ability to simplify complex cybersecurity challenges has led to its high adoption rate and the highest net promoter score in the cybersecurity and IT sectors, it said.


Launching Axonius 6.0

The company recently unveiled Axonius 6.0, a unified platform that offers a comprehensive view of all assets, their relationships, and business context. The launch made Axonius the sole provider of a combined solution for Cyber Asset Attack Surface Management (CAASM), SaaS Security Posture Management (SSPM), and SaaS Management Platforms (SMP). 

With over 1,000 platform integrations, Axonius stands out for its ability to identify security gaps, risks, and inefficiencies more effectively than any other company in the space.
