Members of Forbes Technology Council are at the forefront of new, exciting tech developments. Whether their companies are launching new cybersecurity platforms or they’re inspiring women in tech in their communities, they have a finger on the pulse of the latest innovations in the industry. Below, we highlight five members and their big news.

Axonius Launches Cybersecurity Asset Management Platform

Dean Sysman

Axonius recently announced the general availability of its cybersecurity asset management platform to enable customers to see and secure all devices. Led by CEO Dean Sysman, Axonius is a consolidated device management platform for IT and security teams. In just six months, the company went from seed funding to launching the cybersecurity asset management platform publicly. This platform aims to solve the problem of not having full visibility into all devices.

“We started this company to solve a very specific, acute problem – fragmentation. If you were to think back to the 1980s or 1990s, cybersecurity was easy. It was a simpler time, and no one could have foreseen the security challenges resulting from the explosion in the number and types of devices we use to work every day,” said Dean. “Our approach is a radically simple one: by leveraging the security and management tools customers already have, we can give a comprehensive view of all devices and let customers take action to secure all devices.”

Katharine Nester Named a 2018 Woman of Influence

Katharine Nester

Katharine Nester, chief product and technology officer of remote receptionist services company Ruby Receptionists, was recently named a Portland Business Journal’s 2018 Women of Influence award winner. Katharine is among 25 women business leaders recognized for their professional accomplishments, outstanding leadership and efforts to better the community.

“Growing up I was fortunate to have a father in computer science who encouraged my own interest in the subject. I never doubted a career in technology was an option for me, but not every girl has a support system that inspires them to pursue their dreams,” said Nester. “I’m honored to share this recognition with an amazing group of women who are making a real difference in the lives of those around them. I hope being included among them helps shine a light on the importance of supporting programs that help put more women and diversity in tech.”
