How did you come up with the idea for the company?

I’ve been part of Netwrix for just under three years now; over that time what has struck me the most is the level of enthusiasm and dedication within all areas of the business. Our company is growing fast – in fact, we’ve just been listed on the Inc. 5000 Fastest-Growing companies for the 10th year in a row!

This growth is both organic and through acquisition and while this of course this presents challenges it also enables us to meet and work with loads of new individuals who bring a variety of great experience to the company.


How has the company evolved during the pandemic?

Over the course of the pandemic we, like many companies, had to move from a predominantly office-based culture to totally working from home. It’s been great to see how this has enabled greater cross-office communication and collaboration as well as social events that are not just limited to the local teams. I’ve also noticed greater attention to work-life balance, one of our company’s core values; over the summer we’ve been reinforcing this more than ever with half-day Fridays to enjoy the sun!

What can we hope to see from Netwrix in the future?

Much more! We’re focusing on keeping our existing products great as well as developing new tools to help customers. As well as bringing new products into the family a big focus for us right now is how we can leverage the cloud to deliver our products to customers in an easier and more cost-effective manner.
