Improving Security Team Productivity

SUNNYVALE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/NTA?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#NTAlt;/agt;–Awake
Security
, the only advanced network traffic analysis company powered
by the expertise of the world’s foremost investigators, today announced
its new technology alliance program with select partners including
Carbon Black, Demisto, Gigamon, Ixia, and Splunk. These partners join a
growing list of companies integrating their cybersecurity solutions with
Awake’s cutting-edge network security platform to streamline analyst
workflows and strengthen the security posture of mutual customers.

The Awake Security Platform provides security operations teams with
insight into both managed and unmanaged devices, people, and entities,
giving them the ability to identify modern threats that blend with
business-justified activity and are becoming increasingly difficult to
detect. By applying artificial intelligence, the Awake platform provides
the insight and context that enables security teams to detect modern
threats and take action quickly. When those strengths are combined with
the unique value of each of its partners, Awake can help customers build
a cohesive security toolset that ultimately makes the lives of the
security team easier, while making their organizations more secure.

Awake is building alliances with companies across the cybersecurity and
technology industry including those offering SIEM systems, endpoint
detection, incident response automation and orchestration, cloud
platforms, and more. Some of Awake’s current alliance partners include:

  • Carbon Black – Awake seamlessly integrates with key endpoint
    security data collected by Carbon Black, combining both network and
    endpoint context into a unified display. As a result, security teams
    can quickly and conclusively respond to threats and isolate affected
    devices.

    “Every endpoint is a possible attack vector, so
    it’s important for security teams to have complete visibility into all
    relevant endpoint activity,” said Jim Raine, Carbon Black’s director
    of technical alliances. “Awake augments that visibility with a unique
    network perspective to deliver comprehensive context analysis needed
    to make effective decisions. Importantly, with Awake, our joint
    customers also gain visibility into IoT, OT and other devices, helping
    them manage their entire attack surface.”

  • Demisto – Awake’s network detection and response capabilities
    automatically create incidents within Demisto, triggering orchestrated
    response and remediation actions. Awake also augments the
    ground-reality information put in front of analysts with correlated
    context and data that saves manual legwork.

    “Evolved
    attacker techniques today have driven a need for both real-time
    intelligence and a framework to drive that intelligence to response,”
    said Rishi Bhargava, Demisto’s co-founder and VP of marketing.
    “Demisto’s integration with Awake Security enables our users to unify
    network intelligence from multiple sources and execute standardized
    workflows that coordinate across the entire security product stack.
    This integration builds atop our existing ecosystem to provide users
    with the right information in the right place, setting them up to make
    important decisions without getting lost in data collection or
    validation.”

  • Splunk – Splunk Enterprise Security is the nerve center of
    security operations for many organizations. Like many security
    technology solutions, Awake’s detection of attacker tactics,
    techniques, and procedures (TTPs) can be consumed by the security team
    through this mechanism. However, Awake goes further and has partnered
    with Splunk through its Adaptive Response (AR) program. This brings
    the power of advanced network traffic analysis into Splunk and
    automates the difficult and tedious triage and investigative steps
    security teams go through for all their alerts, irrespective of what
    security technology triggered them.

“As an advanced network traffic analysis platform, Awake helps analysts
with a wide variety of detection, response, and intelligence use cases
that have historically been blind spots for security teams,” said Rahul
Kashyap, CEO of Awake Security. “Coupled with existing solutions in the
enterprise security stack, security teams are now able to perform threat
hunting and analysis tasks that were previously either impossible or too
cumbersome and error-prone to do effectively. Our fast-expanding
alliance program continues to strengthen those capabilities for Awake
customers so they can stop new and evolving threats and continue to
derive value from existing solutions.”
