Who We Are

Awake Security™ provides the only advanced security analytics solution that delivers deep visibility and answers to questions that cannot even be asked in other tools today, improving security team productivity tenfold.

Our patent-pending Security Knowledge Graph™ data model uses machine learning and data science to identify and track network entities as humans think of them and highlights entity attributes, relationships, behaviors and activities. With Awake, tasks that were previously impossible for a Tier 1 analyst, error prone for a Tier 2 and cumbersome for a Tier 3 become easy, accurate and fast.

Awake is built on a foundation of more than two years of research with hundreds of security professionals and more than a dozen security teams. We are backed by Greylock Partners and Bain Capital Ventures and are based in Mountain View, California.
