Awake Security Wins Gold for Best Company of the Year

The awards keep rolling in for our team at Awake Security. We are incredibly excited to be recognized as a Gold Best Company of the Year in the 2019 Network Products Guide IT World Awards program. We also were recognized as a Silver and Bronze Hot Technology & Solution of the Year and a Bronze Hot IT Company of the Year. This comes hot on the heels of the analyst firm Enterprise Technology Research releasing a report that IT decision-makers are looking at Awake solutions more than any other security company.

These honors come as no surprise given our team works tirelessly to produce an innovative solution that no other vendors can replicate. We are the only advanced network traffic analysis (NTA) company to have introduced a privacy-aware expert system known as Ava, which is built on top of a machine learning platform, bringing human security expertise and decades of experience to bear. Our solution applies artificial intelligence to every packet that crosses the network, bringing the skills and knowledge of the world’s foremost investigators to every customer. Unlike other vendors, this enables detection of threats hiding in plain sight – something that could previously only be accomplished by the most experienced analysts with the time and resources to hunt.

This latest recognition adds to our company’s continued momentum this year, which includes accolades by prestigious industry peers. We were recognized by Business Insider as one of the most promising cybersecurity companies in 2019, named in Gartner’s first market guide for network traffic analysis, selected as a “Top 3” solution for detecting lateral movement, credential abuse, and threat hunting by Enterprise Management Associates, and ranked as the #1 security solution being evaluated by Global 1000 Companies. We also won the Gold Edison award for Best New Cybersecurity Product; awarded across multiple categories in the Cybersecurity Excellence Awards program; secured Gold in the Info Security Products Guide Global Excellence Awards program; and named a winner in the Cyber Defense Magazine InfoSec Award for Next Gen Cybersecurity Analytics.
