Axio, a leading cyber risk management SaaS company that helps organizations optimize their portfolio of technical and financial controls to minimize cyber risk, today announced the appointment of Jason Adair as Chief Sales Officer.
Adair is a 25-year veteran in cybersecurity with a proven track record of building and leading high-performing sales teams. He joins Axio from NetIQ/Micro Focus where he was the VP of Sales, responsible for Product and Services for direct and indirect sales for an extensive portfolio of over 300 products, focusing on Cybersecurity, Big Data, and Dev/Sec Ops.
“I’m thrilled by the opportunity to join a company that is entirely re-inventing the cyber risk management paradigm. Security leaders are overwhelmed with threats, budget constraints and the pressure to be perfect, and that has to stop,” said Adair. “The time for a company like Axio is now! The Axio platform enables all key stakeholders to achieve and act on a shared understanding of the organization’s cyber exposure, making the risk very manageable. I’m excited to bring my enterprise sales expertise to Axio as we continue to innovate and lead the cyber risk management market.”
“Jason Adair is the perfect Chief Sales Officer for Axio,” said Scott Kannry, Chief Executive Officer. “For the last 15 years Jason has witnessed firsthand the very problem that we’re tackling – security leaders who struggle with how to put together an optimal portfolio of controls, need to continually justify budgets, and who are constantly fearful that a big event will happen on their watch. He is primed to help security leaders across all industries solve cyber risk once and for all.”
