On this week's episode of the CISO/Security Vendor Relationship Podcast, Edna Conway discussed with co-host David Spark why the Axonius approach to asset management is unique, and why the topic is such a hot trend right now:
David Spark: Why is asset management trending so unbelievably hot right now?
Edna Conway: It’s a great question. Asset management has been one of our foundational elements of security. Quite frankly, we live in a digital economy, and as that digital economy is expanding, so too is the 3rd party ecosystem that is involved with each and every one of us. So understanding asset management - both from your own internal environment and that third party ecosystem - is foundational.
David Spark: What is the Axonius approach to this hot space of asset management?
Edna Conway: I think Axonius has a somewhat unique approach. It seeks to ensure the comprehensive visibility that is essential for true asset management. And it does that with an eye towards a very swift visibility that allows security investigation across the full spectrum of assets and solutions that they serve, both internally as well as in that 3rd party ecosystem.
David Spark: Are there any spaces companies are commonly missing where an asset management solution is desperately needed?
Edna Conway: What’s missing is the connection between the “them” and the “us”. We don’t live in a world of “them” and “us” anymore, we live only in a world of “we”. If it is a world of “we”, then that means assets across perimeters and across physical boundaries and the intersection of companies all need to be viewed in one comprehensive way opportunistically.
