Automox 2020: Year in Review
020 was a year that challenged us in ways we may have never expected. Despite the shifts in business and life, Automox was able to embrace those changes to thoughtfully redefine how we conduct “business as usual.” Looking back at all we accomplished in 2020, we raise a toast to our team and the Automox community for making this past year a real success. Here are the highlights.
$30 MILLION IN SERIES B FUNDING
Koch Disruptive Technologies, CrowdStrike and CRV joined Automox in its mission to make corporate infrastructure more resilient to cyber threats by investing $30M at the start of the year.
