Marketing intelligence company CyberSecurity Breakthrough has awarded cloud-native ITops focused Automox its Endpoint Security Solution Provider of the Year for 2022.
James Johnson, managing director of CyberSecurity Breakthrough, said Automox’s cloud-native solution represented an innovative approach to modernising IT operations for security and business outcomes.
“Slow, outdated and often fragmented security and management tools that have defined an era of endpoint security are incredibly inadequate and raise a company’s total cost of ownership,” Johnson said in an announcement.
“Security and IT teams need a faster, more automated method for addressing the constant flow of vulnerabilities as a single, collaborative force.”
Automox combined individual endpoint management modules into an extensible automation framework, making the vendor the awards programme‘s pick for endpoint security solution provider of the year.
The Colorado, US-based company boasts around 3,200 customers across 30 countries, and was also named a leader in the G2 Patch Management Grid during the US’s autumn months.
Tim Lucas, chief executive officer at Automox, said the idea was to enable security and IT teams to act faster and more confidently, in part by automating multiple critical, typically time-consuming tasks.
“We set out to build a platform that removes the need for multiple-point solutions and empowers ITops to manage and secure endpoints effortlessly – regardless of location, operating system, or environment,” Lucas said.
According to Automox, its single-agent offering can query devices, collect insights, and find and fix issues at scale, helping reduce IT team workloads with continuous, cloud-based, actionable data collection. Patching, device configuration and vulnerability remediation can be automated.
“The platform’s powerful automation capabilities are what set it apart from other contenders in this year’s pool of nominees,” the vendor said in its announcement.
“This year’s [awards] programme attracted more than 4,100 nominations from over 20 different countries.”
Automox was also chosen as one of several “hypergrowth vendors” to kickstart the partner programme of new distributor Orchestra across Europe — announced in October.
“We share the honour with a shortlist of other cybersecurity, devops and Microsoft365 management companies, and join a team of enterprises that have also enjoyed success with direct sales in the US,” according to Automox. “We’re excited to be part of a channel-first model with compelling partner benefits in Europe.”
