About Alexio

Alexio is Canada's award-winning data protection suite for small businesses

Alexio’s founders have deep roots in small business and healthcare information privacy and security. In a recent article in Cyber Defense Magazine, Alexio Corporation’s CEO Anne Genge revealed how developing and mastering security automation has made her company a leader in robust yet affordable IT security.

Security automation has never been more relevant as millions of people have moved to working from home without the same safeguards of corporate network security. In many cases they’re connecting with older hardware, and a wide array of (often non-compliant) methods of connecting remotely.  Alexio is able to secure these remote workers using Alexio Defender quickly and affordably. Alexio provides an automated multi-layer approach to computer endpoint security virtually eliminating manual processes, labour, and the problems associated with variation of human talent.

Data protection needs to happen regardless of the size of the organization. SME’s are a huge target with small IT resources. Ransomware alone has cost businesses billions of dollars. If antivirus worked, we would have far less cyber-crime. The world is more connected than ever, and cyber-attacks are conducted using sophisticated tools that can hit massive numbers of targets at the same time.

The attacks against us are automated so we must fight them with all the best tools including automation, machine-learning canary tokens, and AI. And, although there’s been more push towards cybersecurity training in organizations, over 90% of successful cyber-attacks are facilitated by human error. This means we need to protect things proactively, use tools to block silly mistakes, and have an efficient alert system for escalation when necessary.   

Alexio is a Global Award-Winning Cybersecurity Firm

“Alexio Corporation embodies three major features the judges look for to become winners:
understanding tomorrow’s threats, today, providing a cost-effective solution and innovating
in unexpected ways that can help stop the next breach,”
Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher of Cyber Defense Magazine.

"One of the biggest challenges in implementing great cyber-security is not always the expense, it's the need for people to embrace change. It IS inconvenient, and that's the whole point. We need to make it more difficult for cyber-criminals and that can't happen if you want unfettered access yourself."
