Axis Security
Focus: Secure application access
Funding: $17M (Series A)
Founded in: 2018
Axis Security was founded by CEO Dor Knafo and CTO Gil Azrieland, both of whom spent time in the Israeli Defense Forces' Unit 8200 for cyber warfare. The startup has raised a total of $17 million in venture funding since its 2018 founding; most recently, it announced a $14 million Series A when it emerged from stealth in March of this year.
The company has created a cloud-based platform for secure remote access to private apps, including custom or legacy applications that run on-premises or in the cloud. Its App Access Cloud grants access to a specific app rather than a full corporate infrastructure and it's delivered as a service, meaning admins won't have to install agents on employees' devices. 
'Because VPN technology is struggling to meet the need for access to cloud-based applications, there is an opportunity for vendors like Axis to take market share with secure and easy-to-use alternatives,' Omdia's Turner writes in a profile on Axis Security.
