NEW YORK, April 27, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Axonius, the leader of cybersecurity asset management and SaaS management, today launched its “Controlling Complexity” campaign, featuring world champion gymnast Simone Biles and CrossFit champion Amy Bream. As a brand committed to elevating the human element of cybersecurity, Axonius has partnered with Biles and Bream because of their experience overcoming adversity, a truth that IT and cybersecurity professionals know all too well as their organizations primary defenders against security threats.

“I’ve faced my share of adversity and complexity in my career, and my ability to persevere is rooted in my strong family support system,” said Simone Biles. “We all face different levels of adversity in today’s digital age, and Axonius helps provide the cybersecurity community with assistance in managing complex environments. After all, it is during the difficult times in our lives that support systems are most critical.

As part of the “Controlling Complexity” campaign, Biles and Bream will share their experiences on how they were able to navigate the complexity of their sport and daily life through a series of videos, available exclusively on Axonius+, a video platform recently launched by Axonius.

Axonius’ cybersecurity asset management platform provides customers with a simple and effective way to control the complexity and sprawl of modern IT while ensuring the security of their systems.

“Today, most advertising and marketing campaigns promoting cybersecurity solutions focus on technology, with very few highlighting the human element, but it’s the people behind the technology who are the real heroes,” said Nathan Burke, chief marketing officer at Axonius. “Simone and Amy confronted and overcame complexity at the highest, most public level in a uniquely human way, and we believe their journeys perfectly parallel the current struggles facing cybersecurity teams today.”

“Being born with a birth defect gave me a natural resilience that made me determined to take on any challenge,” Amy Bream said. “When things in my life start to feel too overwhelming or complex, I focus on what I can control. Axonius helps cybersecurity professionals go through the same process, and that’s why I’m so happy to do part of this campaign. Whether you’re doing CrossFit or fending off a hacker, we all have the ability to overcome complexity.

In addition to videos that reveal a side of Biles and Bream not typically seen in the public domain, the “Controlling Complexity” campaign will be featured on the Hacker Valley Studio podcast, Webby Award finalist and Anthem Award winner as well as one of the most popular cybersecurity shows with listeners in over 150 countries.

Cybersecurity asset management is one of the foundations of security, but knowing which devices and applications are managed and secure paves the way for more advanced, strategic, and high-value work like threat hunting or red teaming.
