Awake Security

Awake Security is an AI-powered cybersecurity platform that analyzes network traffic to identify and assess internal and external threats.

Awake Security is the only advanced network traffic analysis company that delivers answers, not alerts.

Awake Security was founded in 2014 by Keith Amidon, Debabrata Dash, and Gary Golomb. The company is headquartered in Santa Clara, California.


Awake Security combines artificial intelligence with human expertise, Awake models and hunts for both insider and external attacker behaviors, while providing autonomous triage and response with full forensics across traditional, IoT and cloud networks.


Awake Security has displaced several established vendors, including those using AI-based techniques, and has established itself as a market leader for network detection and response, shadow IT, remote worker and contractor security, digital network packet forensics and threat hunting.


Awake is backed by Greylock Partners, Bain Capital Ventures, Evolution Equity Partners, Energize Ventures and Liberty Global Ventures. The company raised $36M in a Series C round on April 15, 2020. This brings Awake's total funding to $66M to date.
