Awake Security Empowers Prophix Software to Cut Through “Noisy” Alerts and Stop Real Threats on the Network

Awake Security Platform’s Intuitive Interface Helps Prophix Confidently Protect Critical Business Assets and Ensure Regulatory Compliance

SANTA CLARA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#analyticsAwake Security, the only advanced network traffic analysis company that delivers answers, not alerts, today announced that Prophix Software, a leader in mid-market Corporate Performance Management (CPM) software, has selected the Awake Security Platform to autonomously detect and respond to threats on the network. Prophix evaluated the Awake Security Platform against competing solutions identified in Gartner’s Market Guide for Network Traffic Analysis(1) and chose Awake because of its clean and easy-to-navigate interface which makes it easier for Prophix to cut through “noisy” alerts to ascertain traffic that represents real threats on the network.

Through the use of data science and analytics, the Awake Security Platform will enable Prophix to prevent data leaks by helping to detect more true threats and reducing dwell time. The context around malicious activity Awake delivers also helps Prophix quickly and effectively mitigate potential risks. This in turn will help Prophix comply with regulations like GDPR given the company’s significant European customer base.

The Awake Security Platform will also enable Prophix to stay one step ahead of today’s modern attackers who have changed their tactics to circumvent malware-blocking defenses. Prophix will use Awake to distinguish between good and bad activity on the network that current security tools are missing. Awake does this by parsing data deeper than any other solution – including performing encrypted traffic analysis – to autonomously profile entities such as devices, users and applications while also providing historical forensic context to connect attacker behavior across time, entities and protocols.

“I was looking for a product that could allow my team to gain further insights into potential nefarious traffic on our network without adding unnecessary complexities to their tasks at hand,” said Kristofer Laxdal, Director, Information Security at Prophix Software. “Not only has the Awake Security Platform helped my team better identify and stop the real threats on our network, it also has an intuitive interface which makes it much easier to navigate and use more effectively than other solutions we compared it against.”

Awake helps security teams stay ahead of today’s complex cyber threats that target their hybrid cloud IT infrastructure. Independent testing conducted by the Tolly Group shows the Awake Security Platform delivers almost 1500% less noise and 3X greater visibility into the devices, users, applications and behaviors on the network than the competition.

“Attackers are constantly finding new ways to accomplish their objective, which is why we make it our priority to equip companies like Prophix with an autonomous network traffic analysis solution that defends their unique environments according to their specific needs,” said Rahul Kashyap, CEO of Awake Security. “In this case, Prophix needed a turnkey solution that its team can easily and effectively use to ensure that its customers’ sensitive data is protected always.”
