Action1, New Startup Founded by Netwrix Veterans, Targets Endpoint Security

Houston, Texas, July 27, 2019

The two co-founders of Netwrix, Alex Vovk, and Mike Walters, established Action1 Corporation with the vision of extending into the fast-growing cloud-based cybersecurity market. Netwrix is well known for its market-leading visibility platform for cybersecurity and risk mitigation. After building Netwrix for almost 12 years from the ground up to a very successful technology business and ensuring the successful transition of strategy to the new CEO, the visionary entrepreneurs went on to create Action1 to further extend into the hyper-growing cybersecurity ecosystem to endpoints and the cloud.

Action1 is a cloud-based lightweight RMM solution that discovers all of your endpoints in seconds and allows you to receive real-time alerts and retrieve live security information from the entire network using plain English queries, with a Google-like experience, right in your web browser.

Alex Vovk was named the CEO of Action1. He has a Ph.D. in information security and will bring more than 20 years of business and technology experience. Mike Walters joined the company as President to run a product strategy. Previously Co-CEOs of Netwrix, Mike and Alex built a very successful cybersecurity business and plan to replicate and scale Netwrix’s astonishing success in this new company.
