Our history

Axiomatics was founded in 2006 in Stockholm, Sweden, by IT security experts who believed there was a more dynamic way to safeguard critical assets compliantly. This belief was shared by other experts as the company’s application solution quickly found its way into Fortune 5oo companies such as Boeing, PayPal and Bank of America.

The Chicago office was opened to cater for increased US operations in the federal and private sectors. Around the same time, dynamic authorization solutions for databases and big data were released. Since then, the company has gone on to open offices in Greece and Portugal, and released fine-grained access control solutions for APIs and microservices.

Today, the company  remains the driving force behind dynamic, runtime authorization solutions for enterprises.
