Awake Wins Cyber Defense Global Award for Cybersecurity Analytics

The awards keep rolling in for our Awake Security Platform this year. We are proud to have been recognized a second time in 2019 by Cyber Defense Magazine, this time winning for Cutting Edge Cybersecurity Analytics in its Global Awards program. We won the Cyber Defense InfoSec Award for Next Gen Cybersecurity Analytics earlier this year.

Security teams are experiencing two key trends that affect their ability to detect modern threats. Firstly, as more IoT, BYOD, and third-party devices show up on the network, the ability of the security team to “manage” through an agent or logs is diminished. Secondly, a majority of breaches are now the result of non-malware-based threats.

Our platform was recognized for its unique ability to tackle these two trends head on, with an autonomous, low friction network-based approach that identifies mal-intent and connects the dots into end-to-end incidents enabling security teams to react decisively and effectively. By identifying and disrupting the attack lifecycle early, our Awake Security Platform enables a reduction in attacker dwell time and thereby reduces the impact of a breach. In fact, our security platform is more than twice as accurate and produces 1500% fewer “noisy” alerts than the competition, as proven by independent third-party testing.

Our dedicated team works hard at putting out an award-winning solution, as is proven by many accolades we’ve received so far this year. In 2019, 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 won Gold for Best Company of the Year in the 2019 Network Products Guide IT World Awards program. Just as importantly, Enterprise Technology Research (ETR) recognized that Global 1000 organizations are evaluating Awake’s solution more than any other security company. Additionally, 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, and selected as a “Top 3” solution for detecting lateral movement, credential abuse, and threat hunting by Enterprise Management Associates.
