Awake Security Named by Inc. Magazine as a Best Workplace

Here at Awake Security we are passionate about creating innovative solutions that help organizations protect themselves against today’s most pressing cyberattacks. And we are very fortunate to have found the best and brightest talent to not only work with us, but who also share in that same passion.

For this reason, we are proud to announce that our team’s hard work and dedication, which is inspired by that passion every day, has been recognized with Awake Security being named as one of Inc. magazine’s 2019 “Best Workplaces”.

It is easy for any company to hire people to simply get the required job done. It is another task all together to hire exceptional talent that also shares in the committed endeavor with leadership to create a security product that is dramatically better than traditional solutions at stopping elusive, modern attackers. This sense of purpose makes all of us excited to get up every day to grow our talents and to solve the latest security challenges for our customers and the overall digital ecosystem. Our mission is guided by three core principles:

  • Belief: As Awake employees, we believe in our mission which focuses on making customers successful in their missions. We truly believe that the solution Awake delivers to the market is integral to that and each of us clearly sees our own role in delivering the solution.
  • Persistence: We recognize that this is not an easy journey. Given we operate in the security space, persistence in fighting off skilled and determined attackers is vital.
  • Being Unreasonable: From our founding, Awake has challenged the accepted solutions and in doing so has taken an approach that others might consider unreasonable or impossible. We believe that is what it will take for the balance of power to swing from the attackers to the defenders.

Being named by Inc. magazine as one of its “Best Workplaces” is an incredible honor that gives our team the national recognition it deserves for the incredible efforts I am privileged to see each and every day. And it’s no wonder why this honor was received: our employees represent some of the world’s best minds in security and play an integral role in breaking new ground in machine learning, data science, security, user experience, and network engineering.

This is not the first time Awake has been recognized as a best place to work. We also received recognition by the San Francisco Business Times and Silicon Valley Business Journal as a Bay Area “Best Places to Work” earlier this year.
