SANTA CLARA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#BHUSAAwake Security, the only advanced network traffic analysis (NTA) company that delivers a privacy-aware solution, has announced details regarding its upcoming presence at BSides Las Vegas and Black Hat 2019. Principal Threat Researcher David Pearson will lead a session at BSides and Vice President of Marketing Rudolph Araujo will participate in an interactive panel at BlackHat to discuss security and privacy risks and vulnerabilities associated with IoT devices on enterprise networks, as well as how to use packet capture (PCAP)to break down application-layer protocols. Company executives will also be available to demonstrate and show why the Awake Security Platform is the #1 security solution being evaluated by Global 1000 Companies and was recognized as the Gold Best Company of the Year in the 2019 Network Products Guide IT World Awards program, along with receiving honors across multiple other categories.

Awake Security is dedicated to helping organizations understand its true attack surface—from traditional IT assets to cloud, OT / IoT and other unmanaged devices, users, and applications. Attendees at Black Hat will have an exclusive opportunity to immerse themselves in a demo of the latest version of the Awake Security Platform. They will experience first-hand how the Awake platform detects mal-intent and insider attacks that easily evade traditional malware detection and how it responds rapidly and decisively to any threat with full context and forensics, while reducing remediation costs.

Awake will participate in the following sessions at BSides Las Vegas and Black Hat 2019:

During this session, speakers will discuss the application of artificial intelligence to discover and classify devices—from workstations and servers to IoT and mobile devices—without the need for any third-party logs or agents. Attendees will learn how this foundational asset understanding enables detection and response of multi-stage, blended attacks including non-malware and insider threats. Finally, speakers will cover how human expertise and threat intel heuristics from organizations like Webroot can be combined with machine learning into an expert system that delivers advanced security skills to your team.

At the show, Awake and SentinelOne will be on-site discussing details of their recent partnership, which provides customers with deeper visibility into imminent threats and more actionable data than ever before by integrating network and endpoint perspectives. Awake will present at SentinelOne’s booth #222 on how this partnership enables security teams to act on their conclusions and isolate compromised devices to rapidly contain possible breaches.

Awake will also host several networking events throughout the week including the Hydrate, Rejuvenate and Wake Up Club Awake suite at the Mandalay Bay and a CISO networking dinner at one of Las Vegas’ finest dining establishments. To get the party started, Awake is taking over The House of Blues featuring special guest Crowd Theory — the Strip’s ultimate party band. The party kicks off on August 6th at 8:00 PM.
