Sponsored by Businesswire

, the only advanced network traffic analysis company that
delivers answers, not alerts, today announced that it earned Frost
& Sullivan’s 2019 North America Visionary Innovation Leadership Award

in the network traffic analysis category. Based on an independent
analysis of companies addressing the most challenging cybersecurity
threats, Frost & Sullivan recognized Awake Security for its innovative
technology, customer satisfaction, and strong overall performance that
delivers rapid time-to-value.

Frost & Sullivan describes visionary innovation as the ability to
innovate today in light of perceived changes and opportunities that will
arise from future mega trends. The firm recognizes companies for their
ability to scout and detect unmet, and as often undefined, needs and
proactively address them with disruptive solutions that cater to new and
unique customers, lifestyles, technologies, and markets.

“Cyber criminals frequently change the methods they use to infiltrate an
organization, wreak havoc, or compromise sensitive information,” said
Vinay Venkatesan, Research Consultant, Visionary Innovation Group at
Frost & Sullivan. “We recognized Awake Security as a visionary leader
because it has delivered a solution to help organizations stay a step
ahead of the adversary. Through independent research, we’ve seen
firsthand the dramatic, positive impact that Awake’s innovative approach
to network traffic analysis has on the customer’s ability to detect and
quickly respond to modern threats.”

The Awake Security Platform deeply analyzes billions of network
communications to autonomously discover, profile, and classify every
device, user, and application across traditional, IoT, and cloud
networks. Using machine learning Awake then models complex adversarial
behaviors and connects the dots across entities, time, protocols, and
attack stage. Unlike prior generations of network traffic analysis
tools, this approach delivers threat detections with low false positives
and negatives and provides the context necessary for triage, incident
response, and remediation.

“We are proud to deliver a platform that helps security teams find and
mitigate against malicious activity in their vast, complex networks.
Between increasingly sophisticated attackers and the growing number and
diversity of devices entering the enterprise, security professionals are
struggling to keep up with modern threats. Awake gives them a solution,
making it easier for them to do their jobs,” said Rahul Kashyap, CEO at
Awake Security. “The positive feedback we’ve received from customers and
third parties, like Frost & Sullivan, validates our approach and
furthers our resolve to improve security in the face of ever-evolving
