Rahul Kashyap-Awake Security

This award is well-deserved recognition for Rahul, who, since joining Awake as CEO in 2018, has focused on positioning the company as the network traffic analysis provider best suited to protect our customers’ networks from insider threats and external attackers alike. Because of Rahul’s commitment to advancing Awake’s platform, the company had a stellar 2019 winning multiple awards, seeing record customer growth, and more than doubling its size in the last year.

Rahul’s work to help shape the cybersecurity industry spans beyond his work as a CEO, which is another contributing factor to his win. He has advised and weighed in on election security and continues to chip away at the cybersecurity skills and diversity gaps by mentoring high school students and girls interested in cybersecurity as potential careers through the eGirl Power program.

The Info Security Products Guide global awards recognize cybersecurity and information technology vendors with advanced, ground-breaking products, solutions, and services that are helping set the bar higher for others in all areas of security and technologies. In addition to Rahul’s exciting Gold win, the Awake Security Platform also won Gold in the Threat Solutions category with Awake winning Silver in the Company of the Year category.

Awake was also recognized by Info Security Products Guide in 2019, winning across various categories: Tomorrow’s Technology Today – Technologies and Products Suitable for U.S.A. (Gold), Threat Hunting, Detection, Intelligence and Response (Bronze) and Cyber Security Vendor Achievement of the Year (Bronze).
