SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Awake Security, the only advanced network traffic analysis company that delivers answers, not alerts, today announced that it earned Frost & Sullivan’s 2019 North America Visionary Innovation Leadership Award in the network traffic analysis category. Based on an independent analysis of companies addressing the most challenging cybersecurity threats, Frost & Sullivan recognized Awake Security for its innovative technology, customer satisfaction, and strong overall performance that delivers rapid time-to-value.
Frost & Sullivan describes visionary innovation as the ability to innovate today in light of perceived changes and opportunities that will arise from future mega trends. The firm recognizes companies for their ability to scout and detect unmet, and as often undefined, needs and proactively address them with disruptive solutions that cater to new and unique customers, lifestyles, technologies, and markets.
“Cyber criminals frequently change the methods they use to infiltrate an organization, wreak havoc, or compromise sensitive information,” said Vinay Venkatesan, Research Consultant, Visionary Innovation Group at Frost & Sullivan. “We recognized Awake Security as a visionary leader because it has delivered a solution to help organizations stay a step ahead of the adversary. Through independent research, we’ve seen firsthand the dramatic, positive impact that Awake’s innovative approach to network traffic analysis has on the customer’s ability to detect and quickly respond to modern threats.”
The Awake Security Platform deeply analyzes billions of network communications to autonomously discover, profile, and classify every device, user, and application across traditional, IoT, and cloud networks. Using machine learning Awake then models complex adversarial behaviors and connects the dots across entities, time, protocols, and attack stage. Unlike prior generations of network traffic analysis tools, this approach delivers threat detections with low false positives and negatives and provides the context necessary for triage, incident response, and remediation.
“We are proud to deliver a platform that helps security teams find and mitigate against malicious activity in their vast, complex networks. Between increasingly sophisticated attackers and the growing number and diversity of devices entering the enterprise, security professionals are struggling to keep up with modern threats. Awake gives them a solution, making it easier for them to do their jobs,” said Rahul Kashyap, CEO at Awake Security. “The positive feedback we’ve received from customers and third parties, like Frost & Sullivan, validates our approach and furthers our resolve to improve security in the face of ever-evolving threats.”
Winning Frost & Sullivan’s 2019 North America Visionary Innovation Leadership Award closes a strong year of accolades for Awake Security. Most recently, Awake won the Best Company Culture and Best Company for Diversity awards from Comparably. It was also named to CNBC’s Upstart 100 list in November. Earlier in the year, Awake was named a SINET 16 Innovator Award winner and won the Gold Edison Award for Best New Cybersecurity Product. Additionally, Awake won a Cyber Defense Global Award for Cybersecurity Analytics, was included in the Big50-2019 Startup Report, was named by Cybersecurity Ventures as a Hot 150 Cybersecurity Company to Watch, and was recognized by Business Insider as one of the most promising cybersecurity companies in 2019. Awake was also named in Gartner’s first market guide for network traffic analysis, and selected as a “Top 3” solution for detecting lateral movement, credential abuse, and threat hunting by Enterprise Management Associates.
