OUR HISTORY

 

Aponix was founded in June 2014 to fill the market gap of holistic, independent technology risk assessments for financial firms. Its name is derived from the Greek word "Aponia", the philosophy that happiness is freedom from pain.

Aponix joined the ACA Compliance Group umbrella to form ACA Aponix in February 2015. ACA brings regulatory compliance expertise and a brand-name to the Aponix offering. ACA appreciated Aponix's ability to perform holistic assessments, looking beyond just the network perimeter.

WHAT WE DO

 

We deliver awared-winning proprietary technology and tailored solutions to meet your firm’s unique needs. We approach technology risk holistically, viewing cybersecurity as one important element of a range of technology risk domains. Many view cybersecurity as focused on solely the network firewall, when in fact our experience and research evidences that most cybersecurity risk surfaces elsewhere. For this reason, a penetration and/or vulnerability test alone is not sufficient to capture a firm’s risk profile. Our goal is to identify the root cause of issues such that security is not confined to a single point-in-time. Ongoing network testing helps provide further assurance beyond what traditional penetration testing provides.
