Idax was founded with one thing in mind – to improve the way that companies give staff access to systems, to make that access less risky, more efficient, and more transparent.

When we created idax, insider threat was not the issue it is today. But our founders with their background in large corporations, could see the flaws in security strategies that ignored people, focused on perimeter security, and obsessed on workflow efficiency. So idax became the first Identity and Access Management software company to bring together the emerging field of analytics and machine intelligence with the world of security and insider threat.

But we knew that state of the art analytics on their own were not enough. What industry had taught us, is that if you combined pioneering risk analysis with a world class user experience then you could mobilise the whole organisation, not just the cyber experts. Our mission then, as it remains to this day, is to provide simple and effective risk scores that are delivered quickly to the decision makers in a way that makes it easy for them to make quick, smart decisions.

Since then insider risk has increased exponentially. Nation state and cyber terrorist threats have become big business. But we are proud to say the over the last five years hundreds of thousands of staff have had their access managed by idax, and their risk reduced. Of course, we are not resting on our laurels; constant innovation is at the heart of everything we do.
